Replication Without Source/Output Folder

Is it possible when replicating to AME without an output and source folder? I just want the same action as render. Or to do what it does then delete source and output folder and move to destination ?

After doing a little digging, I don’t think that Adobe Media Encoder has the flexibility to do what you’re suggesting here. As near as I can tell, the Output folder must be different from the Watch Folder. This appears to be necessary since AME will grab any valid video file in the Watch Folder. So if the Output was the same as the Watch Folder, the rendered video files would end up being processed again, output to the Watch Folder, and then re-rendered over and over.
As for the Source files, I just don’t see any options provided by Adobe to delete them after the video has been processed. This appears to be a limitation of the software in general. Given these factors, I don’t think it’s going to be possible to customize AME to perform the way you’re describing. It might be possible to create a more complex render system using a third-party render software or a command-line incantation with some added scripting, but that’s going to be a much more involved process. Let us know if you have any additional questions, and we’ll do whatever we can to get you up and running. Thanks!
