I just started in AE, and I've got a pretty good grasp on it from all the tutorials out there.
But I hate the native rendering system in AE, I'd rather use Media Encoder like I have been for Premiere Pro.
In the Adobe Tutorials, it says Comp > Add To Adobe Media... but I don't have that option even available. I'm using Adobe After Affects CS6. This wasn't removed in CS6 Was it?
This option only exists in CC, not in CS6.
In After Effects CS6, even though the Add To Adobe Media Encoder Queue command isn't present, you can add your composition to AME by other methods. Either use the File > Add command inside AME, or drag and drop your composition from After Effects to AME. Make sure to save your project first.
