I updated both my AE and AME a couple of days ago. So I was running AE v 17.6 and AME v 14.8... After that when I sent renders to media encoder, from after effects and started the render it would tell me it was trying to connect to the dynamic link server for ages, and then it would fail. I went back and re-installed the previous version of AME and this seemed to fix my issue. But now it's doing the same thing and all renders are failing after trying to connect to the dynamic link server. I then re-installed the updated AME (v 14.8) to see if it would fix the issue but it hasn't. I now can't render out using AME. All renders fail! I'm working on an imac (macOS Catalina version 10.15.7 – I've been puttng off doing the OS update) and I've cleaned my cache on both applications... any help would be amazing! Thanks in advance
UPDATE: I've managed to get the render to work, just by repeatedly trying to run the render! But if anyone knows why this might be happening I'd be very grateful for your help!
I'm on a PC but have had the same issues and also tried to roll it back - which also failed to improve things. Its driving me mad and really affecting my work. Having to revert to the render queue and then Handbraking it.
But the fact that Macs and PC's are affected similarly suggests it is entirely down to the software, so come on Adobe - sort it please!
Hi, I've discovered that if I don't change the location of where the output file is going, then it renders fine! But if I change the output location it can't connect and fails. Don't know if this is the same for you, but hopefully so!
Although I managed to render it out eventually it is very hit or miss as to whether it works... which is REALLY annoying! HAs anyone found a fix? Thanks
