We need more info. What codecs are you using? What OS versioin? How much free space? Do you have any codec packs installed?
I'm sending them out as either Lossless or Lossless Plus Alpha
Mac OS 10.8.4
iMac 2.8Ghz Intel Core i7
8GB 1067Mhz DDR3
I have my AE Cache on an empty (there is now approx 5GB created by AE on their) 1TB WD Studio drive connected by Firewire 800. All other Source material is stored on other drives, app's are stored on the Mac HD
No codec packs are installed - unless what ever comes standard with CC via downloading Pr or AE.
Please let me know if you need more info
Try rendering to the main hard drive. It it works then that points to a firewiere problem. If you firewire drive also has USB connections try using that.
Also - being able to render the comps out to the same drive that I keep all the source media on is important for work flow - so any suggestions on how to do that would be amazing.
That worked thanks Todd!
Started getting the same message again
Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated
There are several troubleshooting steps linked to from that article. Also, be sure to follow the steps on the first solution that I pointed you to, including emptying the trash.
Thanks Todd, but I have been thru a couple of them, and yes, I emptied the trash
But none seem to work
I made a similar post a few days ago but it seems to only be affecting my QuickTime output.
I still have no resolve.
In my office currently there are 4 new machines all running CC. My machine is the only one having problems. The only difference between my machine and the rest is that I selected which adobe apps to download and install while the others installed all the apps.
I am busy doing that now.
The machines are all identical:
Windows 8 Pro 64 Bit
Intel i7 - 3770k 3.5Ghz
16 Gig RAM
GeForce GTX 660
There are 6 hard drives on the system.
C drive is a solid state drive that i am also using as the cache drive for After Effects.
Sometimes I am able to render the QuickTime files on the 1st render, but after that, error message.
I tried uninstalling AE and reinstalling but that didnt work.
I tried various versions of QuickTime.
I tried all the suggestions in the link, and same as you, it 'fixed' it temporarily.
I will get back to you If I have figured something out.
As dumb as it sounds, it seems to have worked.
I went ahead and installed ALL the CC apps, and so far no issues with the renders.
I have tried making new projects as well as opening older projects and so far no error messages from renders.
Dont ask me how. Fortunately I had more than one machine to get to some sort of troubleshooting direction.
Hope this helps.
So... I just re-installed all the CC apps, and now I am still getting the same message!
Any help from anyone, would be amazing!
I'm having the exact same problem. AE will render properly one time then not again. When it fails, I get the same error message of the original post. Feels a lot like a bug in the software. Would love to know how to workaround.
I will try it, although I hesitate based on the "didn't work" comment when this workaround was originally suggested. One question - wil this affect my ability to use DVCPROHD footage? I don't care about exporting to that format, just using footage from a previous camera.
> wil this affect my ability to use DVCPROHD footage
No. This has nothing to do with that. The offending QuickTime component is for previewing on an external monitor through QuickTime.
> although I hesitate based on the "didn't work" comment when this workaround was originally suggested
It has worked for a huge number of people. The fact that it didn't work for one person shouldn't make you ignore this advice.
Seems to have worked. Thanks!
Glad it worked.
The upcoming After Effects CC (12.1) update works around this problem with these QuickTime components.
