I would appreciate an answer this morning if possible!
When you send AE to the AME AE cues up a temporary copy of the comp for the Adobe Media encoder to use. If you make changes in the comp you need to send it again. Reusing or duplicating the first copy of the comp sent to the AME will not give you the changes. This is all explained in the documentation on using the AME with AE.
Thanks! Actually AME would not change if I sent I copy of the new changes to it. I closed and opened it, and it updated!
