Hi there, I've been working on a video assignment for the past couple of days. I was rendering a part of my video, and when it finished I opened the file and all it showed was a black screen... I was rendering videos fine like 20 minutes before, so I don't know what went wrong. I was looking around others with the same issue, and people said it was a codec thing. I'm not sure what this is and if it applies to my composition. In my composition I do have mp4 clips and a jpg image.
AE VERSION: CC 2014
RENDER SETTINGS: Lossless, Format: AVI
This is a video for a school assignment due in 3 days, so a response is urgently needed! Please!
EDIT: All mp4 files in the composition were changed to mov files, still receiving a black video upon rendering.
First, make sure that AE is up to date. Second, if the default output module settings in AE give you a black render try using one of the other presets or try adding your project to the Adobe Media Encoder and pick H.264 and one of the YouTube or Vimeo presets that match your frame size and frame rate. If none of that helps let us know.
I continued to work on other videos in ae later and they rendered completely fine on the exact same settings. Also, when I try to render in Adobe Media Encoder it says I don't have it installed.
