Camera 1 - Nikon D850 4k, which outputs 12 consecutive 5min clips (4GB each) in series
Camera 2 - FS700 with Odyssey 7Q, which outputs one continuous 4k ProRes file (350GB) 1:20:00 long
Camera 3 - FS700 with Odyssey 7Q, which outputs one continuous 4k ProRes file (350GB) 1:20:00 long
Camera 4 - RED Helium 8k, which outputs 87 consecutive R3D files (350GB) which = 1:20:00 long

Media Encoder successfully creates low res (h264) proxies for the Nikon.
Media Encoder fails repeatedly and consistently while creating low res (h264) proxies for both FS700s and the RED
After suffering through this multi-cam edit without using proxies, Media Encoder fails repeatedly and consistently while exporting the final video - either by Premiere Pro/Media Encoder export or by using Queue. They both fail every time.
Things I have tried after searching the web, and this forum:
Moved the entire project direcory from external Thunderbay array, which I have successfully used countless times in the past, to the Mac's internal SSD. Makes no difference, Media Encoder crashes regardless.
Rolled back both Media Encoder and Premiere Pro versions from the current 14.3, to 14.2, and to 14.1. Makes no difference
Change project name, change project directly name, delete instead of overwrite proxies and finals, export both proxies and finals to different directories. Makes no difference
After Media Encoder crashes midway through either proxy renders or final renders (actually it never makes it to halfway, usually just five or ten minutes and it crashes), it just disappears. No error message, no report, no message about trying to save work or settings. It just vanishes. Which is why I am writing this here, because otherwise Adobe has no idea I this is happening I assume.
