On a related note it would be good to have preview encodes write to an "activity log" in the same way as main encodes do. I often use preview encodes as a troubleshooting method.

Seems a little redundant, since all encode activity during preview generation is already written to the activity window/log. Individual encode logs for each preview would generate a lot of clutter.

Preview encoding doesn't appear in the activity window for me. I'm using the Windows GUI.

Non-preview encoding does appear, in the "Encode log" tab, but preview encoding doesn't.

Am I looking in the wrong spot? I'm on a recent nightly - would that make a difference?

Preview encodes are not logged on windows currently. They may or may not be logged to disk though

It doesn't look like they are unfortunately.

what about the original topic of this thread:

is somebody interested in implementing code to show the current percentage of the preview encode job in the taskbar of windows?
