Hello everyone, on my latest project I have used AE and Media Encoder. When it comes to creating high quality videos would it be ideal to use Media Encoder and files via File > Add After Effect Composition.
Or would it be ideal to render the project files using AE and then use Media Encoder to re-render the project files?

Thanks

P.S What happens when the render settings of the project file is set @ 25fps and it's changed to a much higher fps?

There is no quality difference between the two, but there may be a speed difference. Using Ae to render a lossless intermediate file allows you to use multiprocessing, but using AME to render directly from Ae without an intermediate does not.

Ae comps are rendered at the frame rate specified in the Ae output module. Elements that are not reliant on video footage will be smoothly and natively rendered at the output frame rate; video footage will have to be frame-blended [link].
