Queue Consolidate and Transcode to Media Encoder
When using Consolidate & Transcode function, provide option to send transcoding work to media encoder.
This would allow users to continue working in Premiere Pro rather than having to wait for the process to finish. It would also allow users to consolidate and transcode many projects in a row, leaving all of the heavy lifting to Media Encoder.

Yes, Please do this!
I'm shocked it's not able to do this now. Seems like a no-brainer.
