Today while working on few after effects animation projects for my clients, I started to face several errors with Adobe After Effects and Adobe Media Encoder. I am using version CC 2015 for both. Last time I had encountered Adobe Media Encoder CC not opening error message and I had fixed it in the previous blog post.

Once you have installed Adobe Application Manager 10.0, the error message of missing / damaged application manager will be gone, you will be able to open Adobe After Effects and you will be served with another challenge when you will try to render the After Effects Projects with Adobe Media Encoder. Now you will need to fix Adobe Media Encoder Error: AEGP Plugin Missing; Adobe Media Encoder Not Installed Error.
