The whole system becomes unresponsive, keyboard and mouse don't work at all, or it just takes a bit for AME to actually start encoding?
The keyboard and mouse still work, but when I click FILE, EXPORT, MEDIA, I get the spinning circle icon for several minutes. When I change the format in the export settings, that has a minute or so delay. When I click "export" or "Queue" I get another delay of several minutes. The encoding appears to be working fine, so I'm only concerned about the delays. Also, if I need to reinstall the entire CS5 suite, do I deactivate and reactivate and should I run the cleaner tool?
Yeah, that's definitely not normal. Unfortunately, I don't really have any ideas about what might be causing the hold up. Unless someone chimes with with something, a reinstall might be called for.
Yes, deactivate first. And do run the Cleaner Tool.
Thanks! It will be worth it to clear up the issue.
