AME isn't working for me at all. I have tried uninstalling and installing it again updated it to the latest version but still, it just keeps connecting to Dynamic Link Server for anonymous time. Is there any solution apart from updating, I am importing an AE project file.

Ok, I found your answer over on the After Effects forums. This is a known issue that a lot of other users have been noticing, as well.

Hi RazorPredator,

 

When you updated AME, did you also update After Effects, as well? Oftentimes I find things run smoother when I update the apps at the same time, or at least keep them on the same version that they were released together. On a similar note, specifically which version of Media Encoder and After Effects do you have installed (including the decimal point)?

Sorry I never got back with you.

 

  • Can you test another simplified .aep compostion to rule out that it's not just something in that particular comp?
  • How are you queing your composition in Media Encoder? Are you doing it through After Effect's Composition menu option "Add to Adobe Media Encoder Queue...? Or are you importing your After Effects project in Media Encoder? What happens if you try whichever method that you're not doing?

 

Ideally, I'd like to solve the problem with your current software versions. However, I will point out that other users had similar problems and solved it by rolling back to an older version, but that version has to be one of the 2020 versions. https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-media-encoder/dynamic-link-components-not-installed/td-p/107250...
