Hello! I have a master AEP file that I'm using to house importing in various compositions that are rather large in file size. As of right now this master AEP file is 1.1 Gigs. When I import this one particular AEP file into the master file (which is 1.5 Gigs) I get the below error whenever I try to save the master file after importing.

Trying to save obviously ups the file size of the master file to 2.6 gigs

 

I've tried the below with no luck:

  • Purging all media and disk cache
  • Removing unused footage
  • Saving as a different file
  • Saving to a different drive

 

My PC specs are:

  • 64 Gigs Ram
  • i7 processor
  • 1070 GTX Graphics Card

Does After Effects have a limit on how large file sizes can be? Or does anyone know how I can fix this issue? I keep researching this error but I get varied results on what is cuasing it, or how to fix it.

Everything I keep finding is pointing to a harddrive issue but I can't replicate this error in other files. So weird.

Without exact details about the contents of the project we can't tell you much, but honestly, those file sizes just sound insane. I could easily imagine some internal math going *kapow* here when there's simply too much stuff. Anyway, you have to be much more specific for anyone to make any reasonably educated guesses, assuming it's not yet another boring issue with hardware acceleration or similar...

I'm confused on what you mean? Are you asking what types of files are in the project? PNGs, JPG, PNG Sequences, .MP4 files, GIFs, COMPS, Solids, Nulls, Adjustment layers.

I would venture this is a limit on After Effects maximuim file sizes as I only get this error if the file size goes above 2 gigs.
