Before today I was able to export After Effects compositions through AME, because I export as H264 mp4 (using AE- File-Export-Add to Adobe Media Encoder Queue). Suddenly, any composition I export to AME, does not appear in the AME queue. I reinstalled AME to ensure it is up to date, and my after effects is up to date as well (17.1.1 Build 34)
Queue tab in AME remains empty, and if I try double clicking the queue and opening the After Effects project file, it takes me to a blank "Import After Effects Composition" screen with an endless loading bar with the message "Connecting to project..."
I am using an iMac (retina 4k, 21.5 inch, 2019)
Processor 3.2 GHz 6-core Intel Core i7
