Working on a project while exporting in Encoder
on Jul 9, 2019 at 2:35:27 pm

This is one of those holes in my self-taught knowledge that I probably would have learned with a more formal education in After Effects.

I know that using Media Encoder to export my After Effects Projects will allow me to continue working in AFX while the export is happening. My question is: can I alter the composition that I'm exporting while that export is happening in Media Encoder? Or will it cause issues?

What I THINK, is that After Effects shares where the project is at with Media Encoder and then Encoder doesn't care what After Effects is doing any more. So I COULD alter the composition after sending it to Encoder to export.

I assume that even if I were wrong about it, that the export would fail and no harm no foul. But I also have memories older software and still have nightmares about corrupted files etc... So I'm a bit phobic about trying it on a real project. :)
