I've been encoding vidoes for youtube, using the H.264 Youtube 4k option in Premiere, and queuing to AME. The start of my video includes some heavy lifting MOGRTS, 13 seconds of which takes about an hour to render/encode. My machine powers through the intro in an hour, and then begins working on the basic video cut together with text/image overlays.
This is a snap of the intro title screen that takes a while to render:
Then the AME encoder gets to this part of the video just fine:
But freezes while trying to render basic text with a drop shadow:
In AME, the encoding process seems to freeze entirely (the Elapsed and Remaining times are static, and no progress seems to be made):
I am relatively new to exporting using the Premiere Queue -> AME feature, I ususally just export in Premiere and wait for it to finish.
I have replicated this problem three times now (with the same project, restarting the export process each time) and it gets stuck at around 50min - 1hr10min but as you can see, the frame in the preview is stuck right before the text appears in the timeline in Premiere.
