This is a known issue with the iMac Pro and most likely related to the Vega FE we are both using and the official iMac Pro is using.I did use Metal on my last encode with Media Encoder. It worked fine other than Media Encoder hanging after it was finished encoding. A force quit took care of that.
I do not have Shiki.kext installed. Are you asking because you think I ought to have it installed, or to make sure I don't have it installed as it could be causing problems?
Read all the complaints here:
People are seeing full system hangs. Even with Metal.
As far as Shiki, I was just curious to see if you are using it, if not then you don't need it. I use it, but I tried without it and same issues.
I'm hoping it will be fixed in CC2019. You should email Adobe support to fix this, I have a few times already.
Maybe switch to Software Only in AME for now? It's slower, but at least it doesn't hang.
BTW, are you using more than 1 monitor?
I use dual 27" Apple Cinema Displays at 2560x1440 it may be related to dual monitors....
