Media Encoder refuses to render this premier pro project. The first attempt was interrupted by the following

- Encoding Time: 00:17:00
04/11/2021 11:38:34 PM : Encoding Failed
Export Error
Error compiling movie.

Export Error

Error completing render.

Writing with exporter: H.264
Writing to file: \\?\E:\matilda\Lexi.mp4
Writing file type: H264
Around timecode: 00:54:28:11 - 00:54:28:22
Component: H.264 of type Exporter
Selector: 9
Error code: 3

I tried with h.264, h.265 and quicktime, all failed. i poked around online and fix this by switching to software encoding, which led me to the current error, which has popped up regardless of the export settings, software/hardware encoding, or drive that i'm exporting to.

Export Error
Error compiling movie.

Disk Full.

Exporter returned bad result.

Writing with exporter: QuickTime
Writing to file: E:\matilda\Lexi-p1.mov
Around timecode: 00:03:12:02
Component: QuickTime of type Exporter
Selector: 17
Error code: 4

However, my disks are not full. I've tried exporting to E:\, C:\, and D:\, All of which have more than sufficient storage space. I've been trying to render this project nonstop for the past 3 days, and am now at a loss on what could be the problem

Error or problem , Export or render
