Since I installed Catalina, I can't render the way I have done for years: lossless, etc. I have downloaded the media encoder but not sure how to use it or if that will fix the problem.
Rendering to Lossless or Lossless with Alpha should still work under macOS 10.15 Catalina, at least for After Effects CC2019 and After Effects 2020.
Which version of AE are you running and what's happening after you click "Render"?
Adobe Media Encoder installs with After Effects, so it should have already been in your Applications folder. To export to Media Encoder from After Effects, do one of the following while your Comp is selected:
In Media Encoder, pick a Format and Preset, set a destination and then click the Start Queue button.
As far as Formats and Presets go, I usually use QuickTime set to one of the Apple ProRes presets or H264 set to Match Source - High Bitrate.

How about you describe the procedure you are doing and if you can upload screenshots to try to see where the possible issue is.
