    this is misleading. the title should be how to render mp4 in Media Encoder not AE…

  • Reply KingCaedo June 12, 2018 at 12:15 pm

    you forgot to mention it takes around an hour and a half to download a render of a 15 sec video.

    So what you're saying is you CAN'T render MP4 in After Effects CC 2018

    My video is less than 2 min short and it has already been rendering for an hour or so and it's still not ready. What do I do?

  • Reply kunochill October 21, 2018 at 12:37 pm

    I have Media Encorder installed but it still says I have to install it. Since this is there any other way to render?

  • Reply Candace Reed November 7, 2018 at 2:35 am

    this is not working, it goes to media encoder 2019 and it’s not compatible with after effects cc 2018

  • Reply REACT November 9, 2018 at 7:57 am

    i swear they removed it from ae so they can make more people to use ame (in other words when the trial expires they have to buy ame to keep using mp4)

  • Reply Gaming Moments November 14, 2018 at 11:47 am

    For those that want to save it as Mp4 u can choose to render it as avi then go into sony vegas or something similar and make it mp4 from there , it works 🙂

  • Reply Orange Tween Studio July 24, 2019 at 9:33 am

    Dear all, you can use the MOV H.264 renderer this guy has made, and render as MOV. Then rename your extension MOV to MP4. Works like a charm..
