    Row Size Error

    ac33369 Level 1

      When I am attempting to render my composition I continue to get an error: "After Effects error: row size too large (131072) (7 :: 53)."


      What does this mean and how to I fix/prevent it? I really need to get this figured out!!!

          OS? AE version? Comp info? Render Settings? Output Module Settings? Codecs used? Without info We can't help. Include version numbers down to the last decimal point.

            AE CC, Windows 7, 64-bit


            Attempting to export an animated Illustrator file, 8bpc, H.264 Codec, no audio

            Render Settings are "Best"

              Is your CC up to date (12.What?) Is Windows 7 up to date?

              Comp size?  3d? You're still being stingy with the details. This could be anything from MP errors, memory and cache settings, comp size, incompatible plug-in.

                This looks like a Quicktime error where you comp size or render settings do not match the required specs of the chosen H.264 preset... Either way, as Rick said, we need to know a lot more...

                  I just ran into this error when I tried importing an Illustrator file. No restarting or reinstalling worked for After Effects CC(2014) on my Mac Book. What however helped is exporting that Illustrator file into a .psd and importing that file instead. It worked fine after.


                  Additionally, I was importing Illustrator files earlier this morning without a problem.

                    Hi ,

                    I had the same problem, that's because you imported your A.I layers as footage.

                    It seems the bug desappear when you chose in the import box "import as comp layer".

                    I hope it will help ;-)
