No GPU memory flush for queued Premiere projects
I had 10 projects queued, and Media Encoder failed every third encode.
Checked video card memory usage in GPU-Z, and yes, after every single render the usage amount increased by 1.5GB, so my GTX1060 3GB obviously ran out of video memory after two project renders. I think it's a bug, and Media Encoder should take care to clean up video memory after every single render task. I am using Windows 10 (1803 version)
@Viktor, I am glad to have ditched Premiere Pro hearing that they didn't even fixed this issue in the 2019 version. So sad for all users that are getting f#@*ed again by Adobe !
The bug is still present in 2019 version
@Viktor - Forget about Premiere Pro and Media Encoder, Adobe doesn't care about his users, they won't fixe this problem, this problem exists for about 2 years now !!! I stopped my membership and I am now using Davinci Resolve that works much better and doesn't bug in Batch !
Adobe is messing with its clients, so time to forget about their video editing softwares.
On the computer with GTX 1070 8GB I had two projects queued. They all contained color and other effects applied. The second render failed, Windows task manager showed that video card has reached 8GB mark.
Please, fix this!

This is a major problem, basically prevents queuing work overnight. This has caught me out on a project with 29 short videos that had to be exported one at a time the following day. Luckily in this case I had time, but on occasions this would have sunk me.
I think it's just time to look somewhere else and just stop our Adobe CC membership and block any new transaction. This is the least we can do, we pay to have software for productivity, we are not beta tester. This bug affects our productivity, I have already tested Davinci Resolve and it has a very good Batch renderer tat doesn't bug ;)
It's better to use a free software that works and doesn't bug than paying for a soft that continuously bugs and with a support that doesn't care of its clients.
They haven't fixed it in 12.1.2 version. Had more wasted hours of Media Encoder failing render jobs when i was away all the day. Had to do projects manually one by one, just like in "old good" CS3 days.
Hi, I have the same problem, I export complicated projects, I own a GTX1070 and the memory goes to 5GB up to 7 GB, at the end of the export, if I do not close Adobe Media Encoder, it will start the next project with approx 6GB already full, so the next export will definitely fail ! This is very annoying and affect my productivity... I have a lot of problem too with Premiere Pro 2018... Honestly, I am starting to use Davinci Resolve, as soon as I am feeling comfortable with it, I will switch to it 100% if the so many bugs of Premiere Pro and Media Encoder are not fixed...
