Since recent updates to Adobe Media Encoder my Mac [3.2 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7 64GB Ram] stutters when I render anything! I thought buying the latest Mac would speed things up!
The same render direct from After Effects or Premiere or a third party Encoder has no problem and I can carry on working. The renders take eaxctly the same amout of time!
Why is AME taking up all the CPU? I can't even use a browser while it is rendering!
Are there any controls to suppress the number of cores it utilizes? I have tried assigning RAM in different proportions to the Adobe packages. I have tried switching between hardware and software rendering. These does not solve the problem.

Thanks for writing in and sharing the details so well.
Looking forward to your response.
Thanks Shivangi, as I said the problem is with Media Encoder not Premiere or AfterEffects.
The problem is the same irrespective of the memory I assign to AME, Premiere or AfterEffects.
Of course this is a mac Mini but it is the top spec i7 with 64GB. and the problem is the same when I switch to software render which would negate the lack of GPU power...
