I am running After effects 14.2.0.198 on a Mac Pro(Late 2013) running 10.10.5, and have been having this error for the last 6 hours or so:

[effect name] return invalid max_result_rect from PF_Cmd_SMART_PRE_RENDER(25::237)

After searching on the web and this community, I tried restarting AE, updating AE, restarting my Mac, purge all memory and disk cache, reset AE preferences, rearrange the effects order, put HSL effect before the effect in the error message.

I am using third-party effects, they are all built-in AE effects like corner pin, fast blur, levels, HSL, curves.....etc

None of them work.

Any idea to get rid of it?

Thanks

Are you working in 8, 16, or 32-bit color?

Does changing that make the error stop appearing?

I am still getting this problem on 2017. I am working on footage that is 3800x1200 exrs. I am working in 32 bit.

Simple fx such as tint, levels, exposure, and blurs have this problem.

It is quite difficult to finish the job as such.

Thank you,

Chris

I believe we used the grow bounds effect to fix this

I'm starting to get this error too. I have tried all sorts of things to see if it fixes but it does not.

Changing from 8 to 16 to 32 doesn't do anything.

Changing the rendering engine from software to GPU or vice-versa does nothing. 

Blending colors using Gamma 1.0 or going from 2.2 to 2.4 or vice-versa does nothing.

Turning off the audio on the project does nothing.

I have updated to the newest version and it hasn't fixed.

I am at a loss for what is a solution.

I had the same issue. Basically, I had this "Lens blur" effect on a huge slide show template I've had for a few years. I spent hours dropping in 50+ photos and arranging them, and the template I am using had layers and layers of comps, so just to get to each photo to turn off "lens blur" and replace it with the new version of the effect, I would have had to open like 4 comps for each photo and then rekey the effect. 

 

SOLUTION: I installed AE CS6, project couldn't be opened! Bah! But, I went to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CS6\Support Files\Plug-ins\Effects and found "Lens Blur.aex" copied it into the same folder for AE CC, then when I reopened the project the old Lens Blur effect worked and actually rendered.

I found out what the issue was after digging into and turning on/off different effects. 

 

For whatever reason time remap in this template didn't want to act right. It worked fine before with different projects and I never had an issue. Not sure if it was an upgrade to After Effects that caused it but who knows. I just turned it off, redid it manually and it works fine. The only thing is now I have to do that for any and all comps that are a part of this template. Geezy-Peezy.

I was running throught the same issue, then i figured out what happened. In my case, i was working with a stencil alpha blending mode for the top layer, then on top of that layer, i added an adjustment layer. The effect didn't work out because it was over the stencil layer, once i move the adjustment layer under the stencil layer, the error stopped poping up. But in my case, the error apeared once i tried to render the video. After moving the adjustment layer down, that render sheep stopped crying.

Hello Everyone!

I am also getting this error - but I am working on a simple project that primarily uses shapes made in AE.  It's a big project - and this error is driving me insane and slowing down my workflow immensely.  

I'm using AE 2020 on a pretty new mac with 64 gigs of ram.  

I see lots of suggestions, but what's the solution (if any)?

After effects error: S returned invalid max_result_rect from PF_Cmd_SMART_PRE_RENDER (25 :: 237)

Hey tara, hope you're doing well.

I had a complex 30seconds intro video with lots of layers and heavy effects, but I fixed my problem by deleting the adjustment layer which was on top of all videos layers with the color correction filter, and applied the color correction filter to each and every video instead, by getting rid of that layer, my problem was solved :D. I hope it helped, have a nice day.

I think it would fix if you change the BCP. (8 - 16 - 32)

Hey guys,

 

same error message here in AE 18.2.0 (CC21).

I get the error in the middle of my comp when I use a set Matte effect which links to a Solid with Mask & CornerPin (form Mocha).

 

I really like the Set Matte Effect because you dont need to duplicate layers 500 times but it really brings a lot of problems like this one.

I also have just had this problem. For me, I had to turn off the mask on 3 layers that had the corner pin effect on them.

Hey dudes,

 

Stubled upon this having a similar issue in AE 2021, 16GB Ram rising a GTX 1070Ti, windows 10.

 

What fixed the situation for me was disabling then turning back on my CUDA acceleration thing...this reduced the error but I still got it a bit, then I realised I had an .mp4 in the project...AE hates mp4's so I re-exported this as a .mov and it seemed to behave itself. Hopes this helps someone.

I had the same problem and as I edit anime I was annoyed but I was able to solve the problem.
For me the problem was to put the s flicker effect after the deep glow. 
So to solve it I put it before. I hope it will help you 😆
