Adobe Media Encoder does not connect to After Effects project

After the update to the 2022 version, when sending an AE composition to render in Media Encoder, nothing happens. Media Encoder opens but no composition shows on the screen. This stuff happened to me before but somehow it resolved itself. Today I've tried to unninstall AE and Media Encoder multiple times (among other "fixes" that I found on some threads) but the issue still remains. It is unreal how Adobe focus so much on new amazing features on their software but the most basic ones are clearly still failling. Extremely annoying.

Hey, fixed this by rolling back both apps to the version before adobe broke them again.

I did this by going into creative cloud > all apps > After Effects / Media Encoder "..." > other versions > first older version > install 
Then I uninstalled both 22.0 versions. C'mon adobe, don't update apps if they don't work.

This has been happening for years, I just got my new M1 Mac-Mini and it's doing this on YET another version.  I want fast rendering.  This is the most basic thing, why have I had to contact support SO MANY TIMES for this same issue. I don't get it.  It's a brand new Mac, you guys have to deal with this.  Not a new problem at all!!! I got a M1 chip so it can be fast not to roll back.

Hi,

Before creating this topic I've already looked at the article you mentioned above and tried every step, multiple times. Nothing solved the issue. The only fix I've found is rolling back both AE and Media Encoder as some people already suggested in this thread.

Unfortunately with the newest version is still impossible to send compositions from AE to render in Media Encoder.
It's an issue that's going around for a couple years at least.

Hi,

I'm a After Effects plugin developper, and one of my clients is having the same issue. He's working on Mac and have a clean install of AE and ME. ME is stuck since he's been installing one of my plugins, which is running just fine in AE. He can export without a problem from AE, but not from ME. ME opens, but doesn't render. Instead it runs the 'Dynamic link connection' window for ever. I guess ME cannot scan my plugin properly, but I can't be sure...

It worked fine with previous versions, and it works with all my other clients (a lot), either on Mac or Windows, and of course on my machines.

Do you see any reason it can happen on a specific machine? And of course, do you have any fix for this issue?

Thanks in advance,

François

Hey redirecting us to a previous fix all thread doesnt work when you >>> Adobe Break the app we PAY for, Imagine being so shameless that a company which many smaller companies & studios rely on for income, cannot admit that they messed up. Because this happens to be software you get away with it but had this been airplane fuel, and caused a crash YOU would be fined for delivering inadequate fuel. Utterly disgusting, I am asshamed to be a customer of yours.

Same issue here, just updated AE, PR and AME. Dynamic link between AE & AME isn't working - it says that it's connecting to the AE project and it just spins forever. Prior to this update it was always a silky smooth connection between the two.

 

Multi-frame rendering is an awesome update, but please fix AME as soon as possible!!

I found out yesterday, that some of Apple's OS security features breaks the links between AE, AME and Premiere, particularly for Dynamic Links and tasks like queuing projects for rendering in AME.

 

Here's something for you to try, this has worked for me....

 

Go to Apple menu > System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy tab

Scroll down to a folder called "Full Disk Access" > Click the padlock and enter your user password

Now use the "+" button to add AE / AME / Premiere Pro to this list.

Do the same to the folder called "Files and Folders"

After this restart your Mac and **it should** be working fine.
