A particular File is in question. When I began altering a specific template file, that was rendering fine up until a certain point, it began freezing upon the first second of RENDER. I am not able to get the file to Budge past 1% and it hangs completely, no time lapses. Used Media Encoder and A simple AE render...NADA! FROZEN!
I tested to see if I accidentally altered any scripting on the template causing some weird chain reaction, any effects causing errors or plugins could be hung up..deleted some...simple process of elimination. No matter what I delete...the file refuses to Render ( but I get no errors otherwise ). When I open another project, No matter how detailed or simple...it Renders fine, and quick. SO, the issue remains with this particular file. I cannot Share the file as it is a work for hire situation. But I can screenshot some elements here and there.
( THE PROJECT DOES CONTAIN A FAIR USE OF MAXON /RED GIANT PLUGINS...I ALWAYS SEEM TO HAVE ISSUE WITH THOSE BUT I DELETED OR DEACTIVAED MOST IF NOT ALL, STILL NO RENDER )
My settings on AE are all pretty standard ( tried optimizing, that didnt do sh#t. Everything is up to date, from Adobe products to my GPU to the never ending Windows updates. Attached are a few things I believe some would need to find the answer, let me know if you require more insight or detail. I am completely in the dark on this. However, I have a feeling the answer is extremely simple.
Thank you in advance for whatever help I can get!
