Still pretty new to AE but not my first time rendering videos. For some reason after rendering my video it shows a black screen and only plays the audio. The format is in Quicktime and format is H.264. Every time its still the same outcome. Can anyone help find a resolution?

Don't use Quicktime H.264. Simply render native H.264 through Media Encoder.

Hey dashawnc,

Welcome to the After Effects community!

Can you show us a screenshot of your Export Settings window?

Do you get a black screen if you import the exported file back into After Effects?

If you render a different format, do you get the same result?

Let us know.

Thanks,

Rameez

Hi thanks,

I dont get a black screen when i put the imported file back into AE but it only shows the first frame as the whole video.

I can render in different format like AVI but this isnt the format im looking to have.

Hi, I get a black screen too and only audio with my after effects file. This is after I've rendered in H.264 in Media Encoder. I'm not sure what else I'm supposed to do.

Screen shot below within ME.
