I have the same error.
After importing a jpeg sequence comprising around 1,500 jpeg images (about 400kb each at a resolution of 1080x1920), I then drag the sequence into a new composition and apply the Warp Stabilizer to it. The Warp Stabilizer will begin to analyze but will consistently fail when about 35% complete. Error message reads, "unable to acquire rendered frame".
I have the same error at the same point when I try the same steps using a jpeg sequence comprising a different 1,500 jpeg images.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling After Effects without transferring my preferences.
I have also cleaned my After Effects media cache.
WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?
Please let me know if I have not provided enough info.
Any help will be extremely appreciated. I'm having an awful time with this.
I'm running the trial of After Effects version 184.108.40.206
on a 15" late 2013 Retina Macbook Pro
16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2048 MB
OS X 10.9.5
So, you're saying it fails at the same point, no matter what JPEG sequence you're using? Try putting one of those sequences in a 1920x1080 precomp, turning it so that it fits, and run Warp Stabilizer on that precomp. Just on the off chance that that works better. It'd be weird if it did, but worth a shot.
