When I send a composition to the Media Encoder Queue in AE 2017
how do you send it? Add to AME Queue or Queue in AME?
it sets the output resolution to that of the Down Sample Factor Resolution of the Comp.
what preset are you using? I was not able to reproduce your problem please write a step by step guide to reproducing this problem. also add your OS version.

After last update I have the same problem. OS Windows 10 64-bit, After Effects 2017.0 (version 126.96.36.199), Media Encoder 2017.0, Build 188.8.131.52
I create Composition (for example 1920x1080)
If I send compostion to Media Encoder with prevew resolution is not "Full" (for example "half") in After Effects - Media Encoder render it 960 x 540 (not 1920x1080)
It renders with bad quality and wrong resolution and no way to change it in Encoder . Previous version does not have this problem, but now it is a big waste of time.
thank you for the screenshots (and for breaking after effects)
I tested this in my system and indeed there appears to be a bug when using ADD to AME Queue where it gets the resolution from your resolution pop up window. changing it manually won't help as it will upscale a downgraded image. a workaround could be setting the composition resolution pop up to Full before using Add to AME Queue, or use Queue in AME. any reason you are using ADD to AME Queue and not Queue in AME which is a superior method of sending your comps to AME and keep your render settings? try it
you should file a bug report about this and link to this thread - I have.
Same issue with me. Also, Media Encoder seems much slower than previous version.
this is officially a bug: Known issues in After Effects CC 2017 the workaround is easy enough. hopefully the team will get this sorted out soon. about the slowdown: how so? I have not noticed anything being slow. do you have a comparison so that users can check in their system?
