    After Effects wont render full res - possible RAM issue?


      Not sure if this has ever come up before - I'm unable to render out of after effects and RAM preview half res. When I try and RAM preview the comp just goes black and when I send it to render I get the following message:


      After Effects warning: Logged one error - "error Rendering while writing to file. An output module failed. The file may be damaged or corrupted(-1610153464)"


      I'm able to RAM preview half res okay, and can render out half res as well. I've tried it with rendering multiple frames simultaneously on and off, clearing the disk cache and turning off any RAM hogging effects.


      An obvious cause I've identified is that I've recently upgraded and replaced the RAM on my machine, however, after effects has been the only software effected. Cinema 4D renders no problems and I've had no other problems with the general running of my machine.


      Have there ever been any cases before of After Effects not working with certain types of RAM? 


      My set up -


      Mac Pro - Early 2008

      OSX Mavericks 20.9.2

      2 x 2.8 Ghz Quad-Core Intel Xeon

      16GB 800MHz DDR2 FB-DIMM

      250GB Samsung SSD
