Extremely slow renders from Media Encoder after updates

I work on two different computers so I'm not exactly sure when this started but I'm on the latest AE and ME versions.  When working on an old iMac with 8gb RAM, i5, and no graphics card, it renders my 20 sec AE edits in 4-5 minutes.  But when I switch to my Macbook with 16gb RAM, Radeon Pro 460 4GB, 2.9GHz i7 it takes 60-90 mins to render!  It used to render in 2-3 minutes before but not sure how many versions ago.  


Nothing has changed in the AE compositions except color changes.  The compositions are max 20 sec long, with time remapped footage, some text, and color grade.  It has never had trouble rendering these projects.  


The export settings are exactly the same.  Not sure how else to find the root cause so would appreciate help with that.
