After Effects + Video Copilot Saber Crashes

hello!

 

I'm running into continuous full pc crashes when rendering out a video in After Effects using Video Copilot's Saber for additional VFX on text and the outline.

 

All versions of software and plugins up to date.

 

After Effects Ver. 18.2.1

Video Copilot Saber 1.0.39

PC Specs : 64 GB RAM

NVIDIA GeForce 2080 Super 8GB VRAM

EVGA 850W Power Supply 

 

the freeze only happens during renders, video previews in the project are fine. It's frozen everytime I've attempted a render using both QuickTime and AVI format. This has happened on a previous project where I eventually gave up on using saber because of the crashes, so it isn't the project file itself. It seems to happen when more than one instance of saber is used at once potentially, but some crashes occur before the second instance even starts 5 seconds into the render.


I'd be happy to share any AE Preferences or screenshots of anything in specific if that assists anyone's knowledge of the situation as well.


hoping it's not a hardware problem as it only occurs when using the Saber Plug-in. 

any help or suggestions are much appreciated! 

 

thanks in advance ❤️

You may want to ask for assistance from the company who made the plug-in.

Thank you for responding! Did some digging to try and find tech support for video copilot. Couldn't find anything on the saber plug-in so I decided to turn off any other effects to see if it was causing the render any trouble. 

I removed a camera lens blur effect and have made it past the troublesome crash spot in the video so far, I believe / hope that is the final solution, and not a problem between AR & the Video Copilot Plugin.

 

-thanks again for the quick reply 🙂
