Whenever I export my video it just exports colored bars even though when I scrub through the .mov file in AE 2020 it scrubs fine. What am I doing wrong... See colored bars at bottom, note no audio comes through either when I try and play the file in the rendered version. I've also tried the YouTube Format with no success.... all footage shot on an iphone
You have moved, renamed, or deleted the source files. Open After Effects and make sure that the links to the source files are still good.
Thank you, so when I go to export the media all files need to be in the same folder including the exported file?
Do not move the source files. You can render to any location that has enough dis space, but you cannot move the source files before you render.
Hey, I am facing this problem aswell. How did you fix it. How did you solve this problem? It's really annoying since it was working perfectly before.
Does it paly correctly inside after effects before exporting to media encoder?
Put all the files in the same folder
(PII removed by moderator)
My files are in the same folder, never moved. what should i do? The preview in after effects is perfectly fine.
When rendering, all source files must stay at their original places, where you've imported they from. Otherwice, encoder can't find them and generates these color bars.
Try this workaround:
quick After effects and Media encoder ,
then create a new comp place the video and render it again.
I am having the same problem... Tried to remove everything and place them together... still get this weird result. Note: I never moved any file
After spending hours trying to solve this issue, I realized that all my source files was being saved on a OneDrive folder, which was having cloud uploading issues. I simply moved all my files (even the AE file) to a root folder like "Documents" and linked the footages again. Worked flawlessly 🙆🏽:male_sign:
nothing worked for me pls help
I solved this! I'm on a Mac, at some point I must have denied After Effects access to my downloads folder (where my files were located), after allowing access it's working again!
To check if after effects and media encoder have access, go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Files and Folders
thank you so much that's work perfectly for mac.
