"after effects warning: Error reading past end of file" while rotoscoping

I'm getting these  "after effects warning: Error reading past end of file" while rotoscoping. There doesnt seem to be any rhyme or reason to it. As a result this part of my file wont render/export in premiere. I check the file in After effect and I dont see any reason to be getting the error. I even went as far as replacing the clip footage with the same footage and I still get that error.

Hi @JohnnyRocket ,

 

This type of behavior usually occurs if there was some sort of crash.

 

Attempt a render from After Effects.

 

If that is successful, replace the footage on the Pr timeline.

 

Let us know how you go

Whey I attempt a render that message pops up over and over again, then a message does show saying something crashed and send s one of those 'send to adobe' things.

 

It eventually 'renders', but when I go to premiere and try to export that clip I get a 'cannot render' message and Premiere crashes.

To be clear, does the render work without that footage in Premiere?

 

I found this resource for you for Premiere render errors. https://helpx.adobe.com/ie/premiere-pro/kb/error-compiling-movie-rendering-or.html

 

Can you try placing the Ae comp into the Pr timeline without rendering?

 

Keep us posted

Not sure I get your exact question.

First, in premiere pro, when I would try to render or export media, I would get an error saying it couldnt render around time XX:XX:XX. I eventually figured out its the after effects linked comp. When I opened that linked comp, I would get that " "after effects warning: Error reading past end of file"" message. Nothing I did seemed to fix that error. Even replacing the footage of that comp. I ended up just removed/deleting that comp and redid it.
