I just realized that when I use the "add to AME render queue" in After Effects, AME creates a temp folder with copies of the AE project in it when it renders. The folder names all have _AME appended to them, and the .aep files inside all have tmpAEtoAMEProject-compname as prefixes.
After I've rendered successfully, is it OK do delete these folders and files? They are taking up a LOT of space. I'm guessing that it's fine to delete them, but wanted to check just to make sure. I'm curious if there is any reason to keep them.
Please attach a screenshot of the exact location of those files.
For privacy reasons a screenshot isn't feasible (the project names provide information that is under embargo until later in 2017). But I can tell you that the folders land inside the same directory that contains the AE projects that I am rendering.
Since my original post, I have also experimented with moving the folders in question to a different directory (to hide them from AME). This didn't seem to cause any problems, so I can imagine that it's OK to delete the folders once I'm done rendering.
I think he means something like this,
I'm assuming these are deletable after rendering complete?
