Our system has been full-on freezing (everything, including mouse/keyboard input, locks up) when using Media Encoder. It happens on different projects and freezing at different points in the render.
System Specs as follows:
High Sierra 10.13.6
|3.0GHz 10-core Intel Xeon W processor, Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHz|
|64GB 2666MHz DDR4 ECC memory|
|Radeon Pro Vega 64 with 16GB of HBM2 memory|

Any suggestions for this? Or is this part of the known issues for Premiere? Could it be an issue with the new Radeon Pro Vega graphics card?
We're trying to figure out why it is happening and it has been a constant issue this past few weeks. We have 8 machines that have been having similar issues.
Let us know if any of you have encountered this and if you need more information.
Thank you in advance!
It appears this was NOT put in the right product thread.
Apologies. I am not sure how to move this to the appropriate area. I tried to move it but it said I was not authorized.

I confronted exactl same issue, although my mac is in very good condition,
I recently had a freezing problem when using media encoder with premiere pro when rendering h264. I use 2019 version and it was working fine until recently. Then, I recalled when I was changing the settings in Premiere Pro to improve its performance, I changed the Video Rendering option from OpenGL to Software Only. But, I never changed the Media Encoder with the same rendering option with Software Only. But once I changed it, it's now working great and fast again. So, just make sure that both Premiere Pro, and Media Encoder uses the same rendering option. You might also make After Effects the same too if you use it with Media Encoder to do export rendering. Hope this helps!
AME is an encoding application which uses grapics card for processing. I can see that you are using macOS.
In macOS, the GPU drivers get updated when you update your OS. Have you considered doing that?
Let us know.
