Hey there, 
So I recently upgraded to the latest version of CC and I am trying to render a project via Media Encoder as a H.264 file and the program is struggling to make the dynamic link to the project. If and when it finally does, the render freezes. 

I have deleted and customised momory and cache. I've restarted the computer. Checked that all apps were upgraded and the problem still prevails. I did manage to render the composition as an .mov in the native rendering system of After effects, but its not nearly as seemless as using ME. 

Would love any further assistance. I work on an iMac 2016 model. 32GB memory. Quad Core. Graphics 

AMD Radeon R9 M395 2 GB

Thanks!

Same issue, seems AE and Media encoder arent talking to eachother (Mac). I try File > Export > Add to media encoder queue and nothing comes up in AME. I then tried with earlier versions of AME and still nothing showing. Really need some sort of workaround or solution here!

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 and others....

 

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, connections will work etc

Are the new updates not intended to patch 'memory leak' security flaws? If so to reverse this would seem counter intuitive from a security perspective.

Thanks so much for your reply! 
I haven't tried this, so I will give it a go and report back. I had a feeling it might have something to do with apples security.

This totally worked for me. Be sure to add all your adobe applications to the list, save everything and give the Mac a full restart. Cheers James !!

I feel your pain, when you have got projects and deadlines that need completing its the last thing you want.

 

If it's freezing on "connecting to project" then it points to the Apple security thing. 

 

For me, it also rendered a couple of times initially and then froze. I quit everything and repeated the process again, going into System Prefs > Security yadder yadder, I unchecked and then re-checked AE, Prem and AME and then restarted. It has worked perfectly fine since (touches wood).

 

I can only suggest trying this again, if you don't get any joy then reach out to Adobe support via the Live Chat.

 

Good luck and fingers crossed for you 🙂

I'm having the same issue, not rendering H264, but rendering ProRes. This same thing happened with the 2019 version of Media Encoder, so I'm surprised that Adobe wasn't prepared for this. I believe it is a security issue on Mac as @jamesb58502259 suggests. But too busy to try it out. Meanwhile, I rendered directly out of AE and it was lightning fast.

Having the same problem. Giving AE/AME "full disk access" did not solve the problem.

Same Issues here
Having tried algo on helpx thread and into this thread. It has worked for me all the time, but since last update it canot work. Only after a restart it starts to render, but if you try to change settings it will freeze out the same. If you try to use a different preset the same.
it´s really frustrating, impossible to process work
