I have a six hour long video. When exporting, it says that the file size will be about 26gb. But everytime I render the full video, the finished file is 20gb max, with the last two hours not being playable. The first hours work perfectly fine, but as soon as you skip to the last few minutes, the media player (be it vlc, microsoft photos etc) crashes.
I tried multiple different settings, but none changed the results. What can I do?
Would it be possible for you to share the project and media with us? I imagine it's a lot of media but I can supply a fast upload link. We'd like to take a look at what's going on.
Sure, just let me know where I should upload. I could also simply provide a WeTransfer link?
All sent, thank you 🙂
I did see an error when opening the project in Premiere Pro but I was able to export the project sucessfully, using the settings you had last used (which get saved into the project). I will send you a link with the output, as while I think it is ok you should check to make sure.
Alright, should be an error with my hardware then. Thanks for checking!
So I tried rendering again. It rendered fine, I had a 26gb file as promised, but after the encoding, Media Encoder left me with a 24 bytes file? Where does ME move temporary files, the 26gbs can't just vanish right?
Okay I found a solution: I had 40gb of free disk space, cleared about 100gb and it worked!
