Hi, I can't make the H.264 work. As you can see on the image, I tryed many things. So far the only one that works is the Quick time, (the last on the list on the screen shoot).
Same file is rendering just fine in other computers. What Am I doing wrong?
I've unistalled and re-installed both, AE and AMC, without preferences. But the H264 + Match Source - High bitrate doesn't work, neither using any of the three Mercury's renderer options.
Any idea? Getting crazy here....
AME 15.1 (Build 42)
AE Version 18.10. (Build 38)
Screenshots that don't show us what is going on in the comp or in the settings are useless. Select problem layers, press the 'u' key twice to reveal all modified properties, and take a screenshot of the entire UI and embed that so we can see it.
We also need a detailed workflow description and some system and AE version info. Your problem could be as simple as a layer set to a guide layer or previewing a comp with Front View instead of Active Camera.

Thank you, Rick. I created a very simple one object scale animation, below the screen of the comp. Also a screen shot of the Media Encoder with the two renders, one a H.264 and a Quick time. Both encoding visuals are ok when rendering, but when I check the final file, the mp4 is always totally black. I tryied many different files, and also this one that I created from scratch. I've no errors' pop ups or anything that shows anything wrong.
I'm using macOS Big Sur v 11.3.1
After Effects v 18.2.0
Media Encoder v 15.2

Hi, it didn't happen before. I'm using Media Encoder.
I found a way to make it happen, using the 2 pass option. Nothing else works.
Thanks for sharing the details? Have you tried exporting using Software Only renderer with the Hardware Encoding disabled in the Export Settings under Encoding Settings (choose Software Encoding)?
Let us know how it goes.
