I'm running into an issue that I have never run into before. I queued up a sequence to be rendered from Premiere to Media Encoder. I started the render in Media Encoder, I went back to Premiere to start on a new project in Premiere while Media Encoder renders in the background. The issue is that every time I hit play on the Premiere Timeline, it pauses the Media Encoder render. I've checked everywhere and can't find the issue within the software. I may be overlooking something. I also can't find anyone having the same issues online. This is a new problem. It hasn't acted like this before. I have attached a video below that demonstrated what I'm talking about. I'm on a 2017 iMac Pro with a 3.2 ghz Intel Xeon W. 32gb RAM. Raedon Pro Vega 56 8gb RAM.

AME has worked like this for quite some time, and it is intentional, but can be disabled in the Premiere Pro prefs. Perhaps you or someone else disabled this option in the prefs before, but it is on by default. Go to Premiere Pro > Preferences > Playback  and uncheck the "Pause Media Encoder queue during playback" option.
