We've had a couple of other similar hangs reported where Cuda hardware acceleration is a key piece of the puzzle. Do you have a Cuda-enabled graphics card, with Hardware Acceleration enabled in PPRO? If so, please switch Video Rendering & Playback to "Mercury Playback Engine Software Only" (Project > Project Settings > General) and then try queueing to AME again. Also, please report what graphics driver version you're on.
Yeah, my card is cuda enabled. However the issue does not change when I change to software only. I just updated to 275.33. Is there any type of log i can look at to see what is going on?
