To confirm, it freezes without any sign or warning, you wait hours thinking it's doing what it should to find out hours later that it was stuck!

still very UNRELIABLE  😞

i wish i never updated it, the 3d previous version was working very well for me!

The latest versions of Media Encoder are unusable! I have multiple 3, 6, 15 second clips I'm rendering in h.264 from After Effects. It takes close to 10 minutes to read the XMP, connect to the project etc for each video. Sometimes I have 30 videos I'm rendering, it takes a whole day to just render. It used to spit them out in under a minute. I'm on a brand new Mac Pro 16 core 96 gb ram, there is no way it should be taking this long. Not only does it take 30 times too long - it renders everything out at 20 times what the size should be. A 1920x1080 6 second video, should not be over 300MB's. Fix your software!

The latest version does not work on my MacBook 2018 Radeon Pro 555X 4GB.
The projects either don't load into the queue, or it starts rendering and crashes instantly. 
Reinstalling did not help, a fix is desperately needed!

It's not working, no export from AE to ME. Sometimes it works but then the rendering hangs forever.

Media Encoder no longer works, since I updated to Version 22 (Build 107) it just freezes when trying to connect to the After Effects project or dynamic link. It's happened on multiple compositions on multiple projects. Is my machine too old for the latest version? I'm on a 2017 Macbook Pro 2,8 GHz Quad-Core i7.

The only workaround is to export via Render Queue then import those exported files into Media Encoder to export the compressed versions.

I am having this identical issue. My workaround is to export an .avi (which takes much longer) and use an old version of Media Encoder to change it into an .mp4. Such a frustrating workaround for something that was working before this version. As this happens regularly with AME updates, the procedure is just use workarounds until they fix it. Maybe even downgrade your programs until then, but as for your projects that are already converted to v22.0, you'll have to use this workaround.

With every update this program stops working.

And since After effects can't render to mp4 any more, it's really getting in the way of work.

 

Please, Adobe, I'm asking you as a 10+ year user, do better.
