Random encoding failure -1609629695
My renders keep predictably crashing due to Premiere/Media Encoder's inability to manage VRAM.
For example, in order to reliably render this documentary in ME, I have to make sure to quit Premiere first before starting my render queue. But then, I am rendering out three different file formats of this show. After the first one completes successfully, and is between renders VRAM usage stays high. Then, when the next render begins, VRAM usage increases further, until the next render crashes partway through. The only way to get them to render, is to quit ME between renders, so ME releases the VRAM. Then, it will render the next sequence. But then, it will fail again if it tries to do the next version.
This is hardware encoding to HEVC, AVC, and then software MXF (XDCAM)
It is a 1080 sequence, but it has 4K footage in it.
Premiere Pro / ME 14.9
Windows 10/64 32GB
GTX 1080 8GB
I will gladly provide any other details.

I have the same problem! This is unacceptable! I can't render anything out of After Effects.

Also, just a little more experimenting... I rendered the sequence directly in Premiere. Noticed 1-2GB less VRAM usage overall. What could be causing this?
