I sent this bug to Adobe:
Concise problem statement: Dynamic Link Server fails to connect in Media Encoder--aerendercore in non-repsonsive state.
Steps to reproduce bug:
1. Usually happens after using Media Encoder several times in a row to attempt the render of an AE sequence either by sending the sequence to ME from AE OR by trying to dynamic link to the sequence from ME.
Is fairly reproducable here
Results: Nothing added to cue or Dynamic Link Server never shows results.
Expected results: For either method to work as designed.
Force killing the process, aerendercore, (which shows as non-responsive in the Activity Monitor) allows normal operation as expected for a while.
Dynamic links suck, you know that don't you?
