I have attached a screenshot with error code (-1610163464) for the error listed in the title. It states it is an After Effects Error. I made sure to have QuickTime Pro installed just to be sure QuickTime could render. I am trying to render an H.264 . If I render a QT with Animation compression, it seems to work just fine, though I can't remember which QT I rendered and it didn't output Audio even though I requested it in the settings.
I have seen this discussed before but I can't figure out how the previous solutions worked since they did not solve my particular issue.
I can render the same file on an old workstation with less RAM and an MBR partition. This computer has a GPT partition. Not sure if that makes a difference.
One thing I should mention is that I transferred some files from my old computer to the new computer (perhaps including some preference files in the hidden AppData folder). I am on Windows 7 64-bit on both the old and new workstations.
Any help would be greatly appreciated because one of the reasons I invested in a newer workstation was for more storage and rendering disk space.
If I render an AVI it comes out to 10.4GB which plays normally in Windows Media Player on the new computer but chokes on the old computer-- the file is 1:00 minute long).
H.264 should not be rendered via Quicktime! Use the native H.264 encoder instead.
i have a requirement to output an MOV and put it on a DVD. what is the best compression setting i should use? some compression settings for quicktime yield really large files for relatively short animations. i also dont want the endusers computer to choke while watching the quicktime. i noticed that the H.264 native renderer yields poor quality and artifacts on some areas.
thanks for your response mylenium.
