Dear esteemed Ladies and Gentlemen at Adobe:




Would you mind retrieving for me that chunk of hair that fell of my scalp?

As it turns out I have conferred on a little bit of nightmarish abherration as I have been unable to make Media Encoder render at an appropriate speed. 

you see a few months ago Media encoder was taking about 40 min to render an effects heavy file. as of late its taking more than 3 hours and I have to split the render in 100 frame sections as well as turn every other program in my computer, otherwise the render will freeze.

I have proceeded to delete cache, given 3 more gb or ram to the functions of Media Encoder and deleted all CFA and PEK files and  LO aand behold!...... render time increased even further. 

Nothing of what I read in your forums thus far have provided any solution. 

What am I missing here, why is Media encoder being so uncouth. 


Sincerely yours,

A soon to be tenant of an insane assylum should I not be able to resolve this.
