Just let me render mp4s from AE again!
I shouldn't have to rely on a feature you clearly haven't finished, which is fine, developing isn't quick, but don't force me to use it when any amount QC would show this isn't a suitable workflow if time is against you
Imagine a situation if you will
On site, Client wants touch ups last minute, No problem just a bit of grading or slowing a fade or whatever.
Imagine being the client and being told your update isn't ready and hasn't even STARTED because the only way to render properly from AE is to use your poxy Dynamic Link Server and there's zero troubleshooting either, who knows if it'll work eventually or just sit there and ruin your reputation as a designer and your patience. You don't know, the client doesn't care but somehow Adobes made money off this broken *** situation and workflow
