Same problem here, out of nowhere rendering in the timeline and exporting from both Ae and AME started taking much, much longer. What would usually take 1-2 mins is suddenly taking 30 - 40. I updated to Ae 2020, no change, updated my graphic drivers, no change. Tried rendering with mercury software only rather than GPU, hasn't made any difference.
I have 12 core, 64 gigs Ram, Nvidia 1080 Ti, I don't really see why it should be struggling like it is. At one point I couldn't even use masks in Ae because the lag was so bad it made it impossible to work.
Its really frustrating to go from a relatively great workflow to something that is, at times, barely usable.
Any advice or fixes on this would be greatly appreciated.

We're sorry about the issue and appreciate the fact that you tried to troubleshoot it before reaching out. The system details that you've shared look good enough. However, we'll need more information to optimize the performance.
Looking forward to your response.
Adobe wt... I ahve deadlines and your media encoder is has suddenly taking 10-15x longer to render or it just stops with no error. Fix your software and you owe $52 for a new external hard drive and $130 for a lost client!
We understand any delay in meeting the deadlines could cost you time, efforts and money. Do not worry! We're here to help.
Could you share the details I've asked above? It is important to know about the computer's hardware and the project's complexity while troubleshooting the performance related glitches.
Looking forward to your response.
Media Encoder just doenst use, whats available. I mean, cmon, 5,9% (single?) CPU usage, 8,6% GPU usage?
Win10, Ryzen 9 3900XT, 64gig, 980gtx, ssd
The screenshot ist from H.264 rendering, needing HELL OF A LOT of time (just 1 lower third animation, that comes with premiere pro, no third party stuff)
Just as an example, what Im going through for the last weeks.
I switched to adobe once for the rendering time. I cannot render for days, that totally kills my workflow.
Regarding to his help forum this kind of cpu usage problem seems to come and go for years.
Years!! Its so frustrating.
Just now, I have finished rendering a 1 hour composition in Adobe Media Encoder. It took approximately 23 hours to render. I have no idea why this would happen. My computer is considered to be "high end" with an intel core i7-9700K and 16 GB of ram. I have an RTX 2080 as well. Please tell me what I am doing wrong. Thanks
SAME PROBLEM HERE, THE LAST VERSION OF ENCODER REALLY SUX, 3 HOUR FOR 15 SECONDOS IN RENDER, ON A NEW MACBOOK PRO 17 , REALLY?? SOLVE THIS CRAP
Really Frustrating !!
A 2min16sec timeline in after effects (with no plugins, no color effects, and no 3D, etc..) is taking 5h13min to render in H264 - 1920x1080 ... seriously !!

I Finally downgraded ME from V14.6 to V14.4 and miraculously the 5:30 hours render time are down to 1:16h !!!!!
Same issue here. I think it might have something to do with a change to the H.264 encoder, but I could be wrong. Something changed in the jump from 14.4 to 14.5, and the only solution right now is to revert to 14.4. Please fix this ASAP, Adobe. As soon as I'm not able to use that version, I don't know what I'm going to do.
Just for an example, I just started a render of a low resolution H.264 proxy on Media Encoder 14.6. It told me it was going to take 5 hours, and the time kept on climbing. Reverted back to 14.4, and now it's going to be done in around 40 minutes. I can provide screenshots if that would help.
This is workflow-breaking, guys. Please prioritize.
Same probelms here. version 14.6 is simply not usable. I am on a deadline and at nearly 2am find myself imstalling v14.4 in the hope that exporting a 6 min video (only in 1080 res) will take less than 1 hour. This on with a 1080ti and 3900x CPU with 64 GB Ram on NVME drives! This is a serious issue that needs to be resolved. Pull version 14.6 if you have to, it is quite literally junk.
Well I was hoping that would help but sadly now, down to a 45 minute job now though! I am now instlalling v 13.5 to run paralell to ME v14xx. Hoping for a bit of luck, right now my iPad is able to perform the task faster!
I have the same issue. I just started making youtube videos and really dont have much expirience. I just spend 4 hours looking what ive done wrong. My 30 minutes 4K Video rendering time goes from 30 minutes to 8 hours. What the hell, Adobe?
Going back to version 14.4 helped for me. Thank you guys for that workaround. Didnt know that i can install older versions xD
how did you revert it to 14.4?
Same issue here!! I was shock to find that a 53 sec comp exporting H.264 1080p 23fr would take more than 2 hrs with out third-party plug-ins, no heavy effect, no audio and no colour correction.
Whats even funnier is that it says " QUICKLY OUTPUT video files for virtually any screen." The irony!!

Can we please get some kind of word from Adobe on this, even if it's just acknowledgement? I'm geniunely scared about the possibility of a future where this doesn't get addressed.
I have asked Adobe tech support about exporting AE comp using media encoder.
One of them told me to move my third-party plugins to my desktop, and leave only dummy.txt file, and then reboot AE.
Another of their tech support told me that I should use custom presets/ medium bitrate when exporting thru AME
And I read online that some ppl found solution by downgrading AME to 14.4, 14.0, and 13 something.
Others downgrade their AE, however for those on OS bigsur, would have to stick to the latest version of AE, as older versions are not compatable.
None of the above have solved my issues with slow rendering, but in case you haven't tried.
Does anyone know if this issue was fixed with 14.7? 14.7 as a whole hasn't been added to the Fixed Issues list yet. I'm scared to update until we get some word on this.
I have given in a try, upgraded to 14.7 as it could not be worse than 14.6. Sadly it is no better either, still excruciatingly slow. This really is a very poor state of affairs. The fact that this time last year I was exporting from a massivly inferior PC at quite litteraly 10x the speed attained now is a joke. Workflow is simply crippled by this, I have to leave all exports over night and hope for the best I dont need to make last minute tweaks. Come on Adobe, get your act together and fix this.
I am on 14.8 version and the issue is still not fixed.
I'd like to add to this. I also have the same issue with Media Encoder. Maybe my info will help understand what's wrong.
I've no idea what's going on and I really hope that these issues will be resolved asap.
Hey Adobe, if it helps you track down the issue, I think Ryzen-based systems might be the common denominator here. Might be worth looking into.
I'm on a fresh i7 10700k with 64Gb RAM. Same issue.
A render in AME takes 10h00. On AFE render tab, it takes 3h00.
