In After Effects, the maximum size for a composition is 30,000 px by 30,000 however, what is the maximum size when rendering it through media encoder?

I'm working with a composition that is 22712 px by 1080 px except when I go to set it to render the max. width is 16,376px by 684px under matching source. If I try to manually expand the width to 22712px, the largest I can make the width is 8192px.

Maximum size depends on the format. Typically lossless formats have larger frame size limits, an image sequence can be anything you like it to be. There are specifications for all compressed formats like MPEG and MP4 that have nothing to do with the AME.

What are you trying to do with your rendered file? If it is for a multiple display setup then you'll have to check with the folks that are playing back the file. Sometimes the only option is to use a specialized encoder to render the final video.

The file will be spread across 5 screens. Concerning the specifications for various compressed formats, where would I find those? Also, any tips on what specialized encoder to use? Really appreciate your quick reply!

As Rick said about format and most important codec (and exact resolution)  you have to ask tech peope (client) that will play your stuff on those screens. Some media servers will take standard mp4, some proress and some also weird mpg or something even weirder. So first you have to know from what format you can chose from rendering your animation to be playable on those screens.
Then - we will tell you witch one will be best or you get it by yourselve by changing export settings - if codec cant render to more pixels will not let you do that.

You'll want to ask the client what (s)he needs.  Multi-screen playback can be with one big files or with many smaller files.

Hello imeilfx, I have the same problem right now. I'm working with a composition that is 22.656px X 72px, except when I set it to render the max. width of 16.384px X 52px under matching source. When I try to expand the width manually, I can't get it right either.

When I export directly from AE (Render List), I can't play the video on Quick Time. It's just a dark (black) screen. I would be very happy if you could help me with any tip.

I have to send it as h264 or proress.

Delivery for this kind of thing is client specific but when I work at that resolution most clients want HAP files.
