    Quicktime Export Error: "An output module stopped responding."


      I'm experiencing an odd export error whenever I use any Quicktime codecs:


      "After Effects error: An output module stopped responding. The file may be damaged or corrupted. You may need to restart After Effects."


      Similarly, Adobe Media Encoder hangs when outputting to Quicktime codecs. Neither program makes any progress at all before the hang occurs. At that point, I have to manually "end task" to exit. Also, it doesn't seem to matter what I try to export. In AME, for example, I can simply try to convert one video format to another and have it hang, so I don't think the problem is due to a problem with the source settings or effects. Also, I'm not attempting any multiprocessing since I don't really have enough RAM for that. Other output modules work, so I'm just exporting image sequences for the time being.


      System specs:

      Windows 7 64-bit

      Intel i7-2600k processor

      8 GB RAM

      GTX 580 GPU



      Adobe CS6

      AE Plugins include Tracode Suite 12 and Optical Flares

      Quicktime 7.7.3


      Any thoughts on this? I've seen very few references to this error in other places, and not really found a solution that seems to apply to my situation. Thanks in advance for your help.
