I have recently made a intro for a user on youtube, I go to render the intro and I get this:
after effects: Rendering Error while writing to file (-1610153453)
1280 X 720
Audio output: 48.000 kHz
Video bitrate: 120
After effects version:
I've reinstalled Quicktime, and I've redone the settings, I am rendering it in my C:/ drive, the only one
I've only encountered this error about 5 times and It's starting to get VERY annoying.
Please reply as soon as you can, Thanks!
Try using the Adobe Media Encoder to render your AE comp using one of the YouTube presets. If that does not work then please tell us about your machine, what version of AE you are using, and what your comp is like. Just telling us it crashes does not give anyone enough to go on to even guess at the solution to your problem.
Probably a performance issue, since you only render to a single drive. When it fails other processes probably cause heavy file I/O activity and AE can't append the frames to the file.... Also, since it's your system drive, it may be heavily fragmented and filled with lots of temporary data, which may also have sideeffects on writing large contiguous files such as video clips... Well, whatever, we can't know for sure. As Rick said, not enough info. You would have to monitor process activity in Resource Monitor and enable "Extra per Frame Info" in AE's render logging to even begin.
