I was trying to export my project from prem pro, so it went into media encoder and while i was trying to render it:

An error was encountered while writing the output file. The output destination could not be found. Check that the output directory still exists. If the output directory is on a network or external device, check that the connection is active.

popped up. How do I fix it? 😕 I used an adobe after effects project file and its called Untitled.

Media Encoder needs to know where you want the file to be stored, not which application in which you plan to use it.

 

For example, you might set the C drive or D drive if using Windows or the Macintosh HD if using macOS.

 

The storage location chosen must have enough free space for the file being exported/rendered.
