(animate 2021, ME 2021 w/ low end windows laptop (surface go))

Had no problem till recently. Tried to export a ~2:30 (m/s) animation with some camera effects and symbols but all came to this "error code -160962960"

It also occasionally causes the "black screen of death" when i try to export the video which i either have to restart my pc or go to task manager.

Er log shows:


Export error

Error compiling movie


Frame creation error


Bad allocation while creating disk aligned video frame


Writing with exporter: h.264

Writing to file; \\?\C:\Users\[user]\onedrive\pictures\[folder where i put my finished animations]\[file name].mp4

Writing file type:H264

Around timecode: 00:00:00:22 - 00:00:00:22

Component: H264 of type explorer


Error code: -160962960


i have no problem exporting other file types, but i want to use mp4 as it does nog waste my storage and can export the correct canvas ratio (4096x2160 px)

Can anyone help please? Thanks.

Crash , Error or problem , Export or render
