    AE CC Not rendering properly

    VincentDominguez

      So today I was editing and I finished, so I tried to render it so I can have in a .avi. But once I rendered it I got no errors or nothing. So I went to the desktop were it should have been placed, I loaded it and it didn't render properly after a couple of secs the music stops playing and I didn't get the glow effects or the full edit. How do I fix this tell me if you need sertain information.

          Nobody can even begin to guess without proper system information, comp settings, render settings, what footage was used and so on. Simply sounds like you used

           

          a) MP rendering with incompatible effects and they don't render properly and

          b) chose a render setting/ CoDec unsuitable for fluid playback on desktop

            OS: Win 7 Professional
            idk what u mean by PC setting so I'm guessing specs

             

            Intel core i5

            I recorded a game with Fraps it recorded it into a .avi

             

            I did some slowmotion, glow, text, couple of Solids, mp3 music and I think that's it

             

            Rendering settings

            I recorded the gameplay in 120fps

             

            Output Module

            Post-Render Action: None
            Channels: RBG

            16 bit
            Stereo


            Named as xkoyyyz.avi

             

            Output Movie: Desktop

             

            It Messes up after the render, Once I play it it doesn't do the glow effect and then after around 5 secs the music stop and it stays on the first text I put.

              First, transcode your mp3 to a wav file. Mp3 audio is notorious for fouling up audio in AE. There is a lot of informatioin on this.

               

              Second, make sure you are looking at the Active Camera in your Composition. That's the only camera that will render.

               

              Third, what kind of AVI. I'll bet it's uncompressed and that will solve your playback problems. There are hundreds of avi formats. You should be using one designed for playback.

                How do I look at the active camera?

                And how do I tell if the AVI is compressed or not?

                 

                Sorry I have no experience with cc.

                  If you didn't change anything and used the Render Cue to render your file then the file is uncompressed.

                   

                  Please go through the getting started materials. Get familiar with the composition window and the controls. You will not be successful using AE without some serious study.

                    What Rick said - yet another case of RTFM.
