Hello guys,

 

Do you have similar experience on encoding failure? How can you solve that?

I have tried rendering in AE and in Media Encoder; in different format like h264 and quicktime. Even tried to render with another computer. Still when it comes to that specific point, it never be able to make it. 

 

Here is how Media Encoder said:

- Encoding Time: 00:41:57
01/04/2020 07:42:31 PM : Encoding Failed
------------------------------------------------------------
Export Error
Error compiling movie.

Render Error

Render returned error.

Writing with exporter: H.264
Writing to file: /Users/admin/Desktop/projects/20191107_EH_Animation/AE Files/EH_animation_master_AME/EH_Animation.mp4
Writing file type: H264
Around timecode: 00:00:37:17 - 00:00:38:24
Rendering at offset: 37.680 seconds
Component: H.264 of type Exporter
Selector: 9
Error code: -1609629695

 

Here is how AE says when it crushed:

Paul

Hi Paul,

 

Welcome to the community and sorry for your issue. I see that After Effects is crashing when you try to export your project.

It looks like you have at least one frame that requires a vast amount of RAM. Have you used any large resolution image or applied any effects at the point of time where After Effects stops exporting and crashes?

Looking forward to your reply.

 

Thanks,

Nishu

Hi there,

 

To avoid opening a new thread, I will just ask here even though it's been 4 years since this post.

I am busy with an explainer video and it is quite resource intensive..

 

So I have already rendered the project and I am just trying to save and close. When saving, it gives this same error, but the memory allocation does not make sense:

 

CraigP83_0-1707810440614.png

As you can see the GB is extremely and impossibly high. I allocated the max RAM for Adobe (28GB), Enabled Multi-Frame Rendering and % CPU reserved for other applications is 10%.

I am also not sure what the 12802 is.

I need to close the project so will not save it as I didn't really do enormous changes since the last save, just fixed a typo.

But would like to fix this as I will most likely get more changes from the client.

My specs are:
After Effects v24.1.0 (build 78)


Dell G15 5515

AMD Ryzen 5 5600H with Radeon Graphics 3.30 GHz

32GB RAM

Windows 11 64-bit
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop GPU

 

Thanks and looking forward to your help
