Hi, I've been working on this 40-second project in After Effects for about 1 week, I've tried rendering it countless times, and every time it fails. It's in 30 fps, contains effects like s_shake, trapcode particular, magic bullet looks, RSMB, trapcode 3d stroke. I've tried rendering it in both AE and AME, and they both fail at approximately the same frames of the edit. I am running CC 2018 on a Windows PC. I have updated all my drivers recently, and it still fails. I'm running the latest build of Windows 10 Pro.

 

My components: 

i5-9600KF, 3.7 GHz

GTX 1050

8GB RAM

When I get a failed render the very first thing I do is select all layers in the comp and press the "u" key twice to see every modified property on every layer. If you know what frame causes the failure you can look for anything that might be suspicious. Particular can eat up your system resources that might be the first place to change something like lowering the number of particles.  You can quickly pinpoint a problematic effect by simply turning off the effect in the timeline. 

 

Another option is to render an image sequence. When the render fails, set the work area to the last rendered frame and see if AE will pick up the render at that point. If it was a system resource problem, most of the time the render will successfully pick up, then you can import your images sequence to AE or Premiere Pro and render your distribution copies from there. 

 

Let us know what you find. If I have a comp that takes more than a couple of seconds a frame to render I almost always render to a lossless codec like GoPro Cineform or Prorez instead of going directly to the AME. If the comp takes longer than 4 or 5 seconds a frame I always render an image sequence using the Render Queue and Render Garden because you can always pick up a failed render and you never have to render the same frame twice.
