There's not enough info to trouble shoot this problem. What version of AE, OS, comp settings, render settings, things like that. Asking for help without specifics kind of like going into a store and asking for some shoe polish. The first question the clerk would ask is what color are the shoes?
AE: CS5, also tried in CS6, same issue.
OS: Mac OS 10.4
Comp Settings: 1920x1080 23.976fps
Render Settings: tried various — TIFF sequence, Lossless.
Computer: 8-core Mac Pro w/ 32GB Ram
Curious whether anyone else has had similar issues.
Hi, I'm having the same problem it seems regarding the large comp not rendering and getting stuck at "Pre-flighting render items. Render items to check: 1". Also for me, this comp seems corrupted. I can edit everything inside the comp fine, but trying to precompose it or copy the layers into a new comp crashes AE. Same for you?
Did you find a solution? I'm thinking about pre-rendering the layers inside, but would prefer to avoid doing so. Thanks!
Adobe CS 4; 220.127.116.11

Even if I drag this sequence around in the project chart it crashes. other sequences fine.
