Hi there,

I have recently updated my creative cloud to the 2019 version. I know have that problem that After Effects won't export through Media Encoder. When i click Export > Add to Adobe Media Encoder, the Media encoder opens up, but there isn't anything that i can begin export. The Media Encoder works fine with Premiere Pro.

Does anyone know how to connect or re-connect the Media Encoder to after effects?

Best regards.

Ok... so there are several ways how to fix that or get around that issue. I guess you have proper versions of AE and AME instaled?
- if there was no issues in previous version just go back to earlier AE/AME
- try to clean AE preferences Setting preferences in After Effects

- disable any antyvirus/firewall that you have
- try to import your AE project from AME
- try to: before you go to Add to AME render queue - start AME
- start ame ... ad any video file to AME, delete that file from queue and stry to add/Export to AME queue from AE

Check if any of those can help

You can't add anything? How so?
Opern AME and just add any video file - that does not work also?

And you say that connection between AE and AME also does not work in earlier versions?

It still does not work.

AE Version 16.0.1 Build 48 - ME Version 13.0.2 Build 39 - MBP 2,7 GHz Intel Core i7 16 GB

The solution to changing the OS language to english (from swedish) is not a solution, it becomes a problem for a variety of other applications / apps.

This was working, why do you have to change it?

Work on Mac 10.13.6, apps updated to the last release (AE 16.0.1 Build48; AME 13.0.3 Build39) nothing works.

When I export to AME the app opens but can't load the job to render.

Tried to switch from Italian (my app language) to English, nothing happens.
