After Effects gets stuck at the end of render

I've been having this problem lately where After Effects gets stuck at the end of a render, without ever finishing it; but at the same time, when I check the render folder, it has finished the render.

 

I always work in image sequences, so when some render breaks it's not usually a problem, but this has happened multiple times now and with some semi-simple renders, so it's strange.

 

Here's a screenshot of the render queue I left last night:

As you can see, the render queue got stuck at the end of the very first render. However, when I went to check the render folder, my surprise is that it seemed done: all the frames were there, with their corresponding information, the sizes were correct and they looked fine. So that's the most strange part. Even though After Effects said only 397 frames were processed, I found the whole 419 of them.

 

And again, this has happened multiple times in the past few days. Any ideas why? Anyone experienced something similar in the past? How did you fix it?

 

I'm using After Effects 24.3.0 on Windows 10, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 with latest drivers.

Are you sure every frame had been written out and a frame earlier in the sequence wasn't missing?

Yes, I even delivered those as the final renders. They were all correct.

In these past few days, the problem has been happening again from time to time. It has also happened with some H264 mp4 render. Same thing: left it during the night and found in the morning that the render queue was stuck, but the file was finished (while rendering H264 there's usually some temp file in the render folder, but this was not a temp file).

Are you writing to a network drive or a local drive? If local, is it an external SSD? I'm not sure why AE would be failing to see frames that are written to disk, we don't have other reports of it that I know of, so just trying to think about external factors.
