AME is failing when i export sequences to it from Premiere Pro CS6. AME sometimes hangs,
sometimes fails with an "unknown error", and sometimes says it succeeds but there is no
file created. from another discussion thread, it was suggested that i turn off CUDA hardware
acceleration in Premiere before sending the sequence to AME. This solved my problem.
So ... is the correct workflow to turn on hardware acceleration in Premiere for editing, and then turn it off before queuing the export to AME? Why doesn't AME work with hardware acceleration turned
on in Premiere?
I've done some more testing. Per a suggestion elsewhere on this forum, i can encode successfully in AME if i drag a project into it; that
same project fails if i queue from premiere pro. is this a known problem?
this works for some formats (eg, flv). but i'm still having problems with wmv. AME says it succeeds but generates no file.
Ken, the way it's supposed to work is that a Premiere project's GPU setting will be honored when that project is rendered in AME. So if GPU acceleration is turned off for a PPro project, AME shouldn't utilize the GPU when rendering it regardless of how the project is sent to AME.
Are you saying that with GPU acceleration turned off you're still seeing issues when you hit the Queue button from Premiere but not when dragging the project to AME's Queue panel?
Also, is there anything special about the directory where you're exporting your WMV file? Can you choose a different output directory (the Desktop for example) and re-export to see if it shows up? Also, when you click the Output File path link to the missing WMV file do you get an error or does it open the folder but not show you any files?
My problem is the opposite. When GPU acceleration is turned off, everything works fine. When it's turned on, I can open AME and then import a sequence and encode successfully.
But with GPU acceleration turned on, i cannot queue in premiere pro to AME and have AME encode; it fails at the beginning (reading XMP) -- i get the bahhing sound. But i can
encode fine if i export from Premiere Pro.
I'm not sure what's going on when i try to encode wmv's in AME. it was failing yesterday but working fine today; i'm trying different settings to see if i can reproduce the faiilures.
Are you still having problems with AME? I am having the same issue. I've been looking but no one seems to have a answer yet. Could it be a driver issue. I had to roll back my Nvidia driver from 304.42 to 296.10 to get the video to play back in premiere using the MPE, with the later driver it was just displaying a black screen. I can export from Premiere not using the Que and using AME in software only MPE. I would like to take advantage of the CUDA in AME.
I'm still having the same problem: i can export from Premiere by not using the queue, but using premier to queue in AME fails if i have hardware acceleration turned on. AME works if either 1) i queue to it from premiere with hardware acceleration turned off, or 2) if i open AME directly and import the sequence without opening premiere. i'm reluctant to roll back my video driver, since hardware acceleration is working fine in premiere.
