Hello, all. I have a 5760x5760 3D-360 timeline with a single 8192x8192 image in it. When I try to export as HEVC (H.265) using AME's software renderer, I get this error. I'm on an 18-core Intel 7980XE, and RTX3090 with 24GB VRAM. Out of memory is highly unlikely.


I've had export issues for the last couple of years. The only way to get high-res HEVC out has been to export a master and use ffmpeg.


AME 15.1 Build 42.
