Can I resume rendering after PC restart (shut off/on) by doing the following:

1-Pausing the rendering task and renaming its cash folder (containing all AECACHE FILEs of the queue)

2-Saving batch.xml and Watch Folder Info.xml.

3-PC restart.

4-Renaming the cash folder with its previous name and putting batch.xml and Watch Folder Info.xml in their locations if they are missing or are different.

5-Starting the Adobe Media Encoder.

 

Now, I should see in the window of the queue my paused task from before shutting off the PC.

Will that work?🤔 I've got 120 hours to encode.

I don't think that's possible, the best way to continue your render is by rendering image sequences, or try to use hibernate option instead of shutdown

This will never work and is just a terrible idea. As already mentioned, render to image sequences and compile them into a video file in a second render pass, which should take a fraction of the time.

Yes, it didn't work. I think the better way to do this is collecting *.m4v from the tasks and then bound then with transitions in new project. After each pc restart I simply have to begin the encoding from later time in the AAE project.😉
