    AE is Garbling Some Frames During Export

    Day 4 Media

      I am exporting:

      • 640x480 Composition
      • "best setting"
      • "lossless" (with audio)
      • .avi


      I am running:

      • Lenovo Y470
      • Intel i7-2670QM Quad-core
      • 8MB RAM
      • ATI Radeon HD 7690M


      Most of the video renders correctly, except for 5-7 frames. They are single frames and typically appear in the last 30 seconds of the rendered file. This is what it looks like:

      The strangest thing is that these frames are garbled with frames from another AE project I worked on over a month ago.


      I did recently clear my AE disk cache because I wanted to try using another storage device. Other than that, I have not done anything out of the ordinary. I have had garbled frames once of twice in the past but they were only when I was trying to do too many things at once on my computer while AE was rendering a ray-traced composition. I would re-render and they would turn out fine. Plus, they were never frames from another project.


      Things I have tried:

      • Restarting AE
      • Restrating my computer
      • Clearing the disk cache
      • Moving the disk cache to another folder
      • Moving the disk cache to a USB3.0 flash drive


      I have rendered the composition at least 4 times and have had similar results.


      Thanks for the help - I am bewildered. (And I can't get any work done!)
