    Failed render upon selecting "Full Resolution", but "Half Resolution" renders are successful


      I'm trying to render a comp at Best Quality+ Full Resolution. It begins rendering but it always fails at 00:00:09. When I render at Best Quality+ Half Resolution the whole comp renders successfully– no issues whatsoever.

      Also when I RAM preview at Full Res, it only previews the first 9-10 frames. When I RAM Preview at Half-Res, it previews the entire comp successfully.

      I also tried rendering a Full-Res comp from a completely different project file and it works fine on my machine.  So the problem seems to be related to this particular project file.

      Any help is greatly appreciated!

      So far I have tried all of these things in order to troubleshoot:


      - from ae, click edit>purge>all, then try the render.

      - restart ae, then try again

      - from the memory & caches preference, clear all caches, then try the render.

      - reboot the machine, then try ae.

      - run disk utility (applications/utilities) and repair permissions.

      - remove the ae prefs file (users/username/library/preferences/adobe/after effects/version#/adobe after effects (ver) prefs)

      - reboot the machine, then try ae.
