Media Encoder memory leak

New Here ,
Apr 10, 2021 Apr 10, 2021

Copy link to clipboard



I've just updated all my adobe softwares to the latest versions of each, and I recently updated MacOS to the latest version too. So I'm all up to date with everything. I'm on a MacbookPro 2016 that actually handles the distance pretty well, until now apparently (but I wouldn't blame the hardware here, as I had no such problems last week)

Since then, Media Encoder has been behaving in a very disturbing manner : Takes a very long while to load simple and light projects (a few minutes). But what's even more annoying, is that even after the render is finished, the Macbook's memory keep filing up whithout stopping, even though AE and Media encoder are idle.

And at some point, the Mac App window appears asking me to forcequit an app because the computer's memory is completely full.


Is there an explanation for this ?
please fix this quick because it's not only anoying, I also LOOSE A LOT OF TIME trying to have very simple videos out.

Happy yo give more details if needed.
