AME is unable to update nested Dynamic links when using watch folders
This issue occurs when I drop a Premiere Pro project containing Dynamically linked After Effects projects into an AME watch folder.
The first time AME renders out everything perfectly fine. If I then update anything inside the AE project and drop the PP project file in the watch folder again, it only renders changes made in PP, not in AE. Incrementing the AE project doesn’t help either.
Currently the only workaround to this is to manually restart AME every time there is a change made to a dynamically linked AE project.
It would make sense to either have AME automatically restart every time it finishes a render or have an option to force AME to never use cached files, either via flushing the cached files as soon as a project is rendered or to never look for cached files when it’s starting a render.
This really becomes an issue when the machine running AME is not in the same room as the workstation, and simply remoting in to said machine is not an option.
