Missing files not missing, but missing in AME

This is the most odd thing. I have a sequence of images, they Are large. 5184x3456. I didn't go back and resize them. But I don't see why that would be the problem.

Everything in AE seems fine. All the frames are there.
It's a time lapse. So I did some edits, got it to the right speed, and now I want an H.264 1920x1080 file, so on to AME right?

It gives no warning, but shows me the missing frame color bars. In preferences there I also have "don't encode sources containing offline media" checked and it renders anyway.
It's as if Media Encoder is looking at the image, and actually Seeing it as color bars, and not missing. Like, AfterEffects is reporting the image as color bars instead of saying it's missing. No idea.

This has happened a few times, with just a couple pieces though. Premiere seems to also report missing files that aren't missing. Then I'll render again after closing things up and trying again, and it works.

No luck this time.

Any advice on fixing this? This is all on a local drive too. I don't need advice on how to do a workaround either. I can get it rendered by rendering frames in after effects, then importing those as a sequence. I'm no dummy. But since this is happening somewhat frequently, I'd like to figure it out.
