Every time i try render my AE Composition inside of Media Encoder I get this error.
I Have tried restarting and updating my After effects and also tried what this youtube video said Adobe Media Encoder CC 2015.3 Failed - Could not read from the source - YouTube but none have worked.
I am using a Mac OS X El Captain (2.8ghz Intel I5, 8GB Ram)
Without knowing anything about your comps, the actual sources used, where they are stored and so on, nobody can tell you much. Pointing to someone else's video and saying "I've tried everything." isn't realyl telling us anything.

Would you mention the error message in detail?
Hi roan o,
Sorry for this issue. Did you ever find a solution? Please let us know if you have or if you still need help.
Just thought it would be nice to share my solution after having the same problem,
Okay, so I was also experiencing the "Could not read from the source. Please check if it has moved or been deleted."
I went back to after effects CC and removed the drop shadow i applied on some pictures and some effects 3d transitions.
then it exported just fine, when i put back those effects it fails the export again.
I had the same error trying to import green screen footage of smoke or whatever and then applied the hue & sat effect.
After I removed the effect, the file was sent to ME and it worked flawlessly.
I had a similar issue and the problem was an old plugin that was used on a comp that i was not sending it to the media encoder but somehow was affecting the composition that i wanted to render. So i would advice for anyone that is having this issue to try on a different machine for example, with no plugins to see if this happen. In my case it is solved.
Yes, that's correct, micaeld41363651
We're investigating an issue with After Effects 17.0.6 and AME 14.1: https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects/unable-to-render-export-after-effects-comps-through-med...
Having the same error, I'm using a lot of green screen footage in my composition. Has this been resolved yet??
Hey Rameez I'm using after effects 2020 and I think Media encoder 2020 also. I also get this "could not read from source. Please check if it has been deleted or moved" message. So basically to get rid of this I would need to downgrade after effects and media encoder? If so can you tell me the steps to downgrade my applications thank you. Also if I do downgrade eng after effects would my projects still be saved?
You can either roll back to After Effects 17.0.5 and Adobe Media Encoder 14.0.4 or install the beta version of the next version of After Effects. Here is how you can reinstall a previous version of After Effects:
Let me know if you need help with installing the beta version.
Yes, you will be able to open your projects in After Effects 17.0.5.
Having the same problem this morning using AME version 15.4 build 42. It worked once, but for the last four exports from AE (also dragging in a .mov file), I'm getting this error message.
thanks. I'm using AE 18.0.0 build 39. After closing media encoder and reopening, the issue's gone away. Hopefully for good. :>)
