ISSUE: Updated AME can't connect to Dynamic Link Server to render AE compositions
I've been trying to import a composition from AE into the AME Render Que. Usually, this has worked perfectly, but after today's (15 April) update, the dynamic link connection seems to be having issues.
I keep getting the error message "Could not read from the source. Please check your settings"
The only way to get the file even into the AME render que is by first adding it to the AE render que and choosing "Que with AME". Trying to import it from either the "File" or "Composition" menus in AE or the media browser in AME just leads to errors or the dynamic link trying to, but never connecting.
I understand that sometimes this was caused by an error between the "Screen At Startup" and "Open With Template" options in AE and since this new update has removed the former, I can't help wondering if something's happened there. I've tried the workaround using the "Home Screen" option but to no avail.
I'd love to know if someone has a solution or work around for this.
