Help! After Effects rendering error while writing to file (-1610153453) I have a moving text with a background with a lens flare effect. The footage is about 15 seconds. I have tried rendering it as an H.264-MP4 and the error above keeps coming up. I have also tried rendering it as an AVI file, and it exports the video, but when I play the video it will only be 1 second long, and I see nothing but black. What can be causing this? Is it because my footage isn't video footage, and just text effects? I don't understand. two different problems with both of those formats. My computer has plenty of ram, and my editing software works just fine. Why am I having this problem? Can you explain how to fix it in plain English, and not in techy lingo? I have windows 10 on PC with 8 gb of ram still available, and 12 gb of ram total with an i7 processor.
Check if your path have non-english characters.
Try to render it to location like: C:\test\myComp.mp4.
Try to re-install quicktime.
Maybe you have a corrupted codec, go to: "C:\Program Files (x86)\QuickTime\QTComponents" and move all the files to another location, and then check if you can render, if you can, try get them back one by one until you find the corrupted codec
