Why are we forced to use Media Encoder?

I used to render fine out of Premiere and AFX, no 3rd application needed. I basically now wait until ME loads to open a dialog box that gives me the exact options as I had before. I used to never touch media encoder, what...does it encode with more gusto or something? It really feels like a giant pile of you know.

HI quaglinoman,You can export directly from Premiere Pro (File > Export > Media, then click Export) or by using the Render Queue in After Effects. No real need to use AME directly for most formats. Thanks,Kevin

It's bad enough that we are forced to use the Media Encoder to export MP4's from After Effects, and lose the record of the render which used to be saved within the AE file, but to lie about it on top of everything is just beyond the pale. Shame on you.

@ Kevin

 

Your answer is NOT correct - you cannot export to mp4 using the Render Queue - for any decent kind of compression options you are forced to use the bumbhole media encoder which seems to want to make my mac's fan's accelerate to the speed of light.

Kevin-Monahan.... rendering in AE holds up production time. We don't have time to sit and watch the render rendering out in AE...

So many crashes and lack of error code explanation going from AE to AME. AME Crashes and throws H.264 errors in different places all the time on different movies. We have had to revert back to rendering in AE which is slowing us down. The point of AME is to allow work to stack up and render out to allow production to continue... currently failing on this.

SO many fixes to try that all do not help. It should just work for the money we pay for it. We are all capable of using the software to be creative.... we should not need to be hung up on fixing software.

Adobe please fix your software.

in 2020 now, and AME is still garbage. It's still always "Connecting to project".
