    Error 1609629695 when rendering

    kjkghfg Level 1



      I have a simple comp with 2 video clips and one transition.

      Error message in Media Encoder:


      "Export Error

      Error compiling movie.

      Render Error

      Render returned error.

      Writing with exporter: H.264

      Writing to file: \\?\D:\Videos\whatever.mp4

      Writing file type: H264

      Around timecode: 00:00:52:26 - 00:00:52:34

      Rendering at offset: 26.360 seconds

      Component: H.264 of type Exporter

      Selector: 9

      Error code: -1609629695"


      There is about 100GB free on the destination drive, but only about 10GB on the source drive. There is plenty of space on Adobe cash drive.

      My system is:

      i7-6950X with 10 cores

      64GB RAM

      Many SSD drives

      Windows 10 Pro 64bit


      Interestingly the same comp with some other transitions from the same pack renders without a problem.


      Any suggestions will be welcome.

          I get these errors randomly when rendering in H264 direclty in AE. The only way to avoid these errors is sending the composition to Adobe Media Encoder via "Composition > Add to Adobe Media Encoder Queue" and encoding the file in any of the MP4 flavours.

            Sorry, I forgot to mention that I actually used Media Encoder and not AE to render.

              Then try to render between 00:00:52:26 - 00:00:52:34 using another codec. Maybe there is something in your comp at that time that cause your render to fail. If the problem persist, then you need to look at your footage and try to send this footage to a new comp for additional render tests.


              Waiting for your answer!

                  Hi Kevin,

                  I am still having this problem.  Both in Premiere Pro and in Media Encoder. I have chatted with support multiple times, and they solved it by going run--> %appdata% -->Adobe and deleting the "Common" folder inside that.  Then, they went to my documents and deleted that "Adobe" folder.


                  Of course as soon as we stopped chatting, this issue reared its ugly head and I cannot make my way around it. I've tried updating my drivers to most current GPU drivers, creating a new project and importing the sequence (it also occurs in projects completely unrelated to each other), clearing the cache through PPro, using adjustment layers and only applying the lumetri effects to those. I can't go back to earlier versions of PPro because I already did work in the new software and the projects are not backwards compatible...


                  This issue has been around for a year and it just decides to pop up with random projects and plagues efficiency! Please please please give me a better work around other than ONLY using software to render.  That typically takes easily 10x longer to render...


                  It's so crazy that it this hasn't been solved.

                      Hi I had the same problem yesterday. (First time ever.)  None of the suggestions on the forum worked but I solved it by locating the frame that was causing the problem and then deleting it from the timeline.  However, it didn't work by just deleting the frame in question from directly in the sequence. I simply changed my in out points in the clip viewer to exclude the frame that was causing the grief and then brought the clips back into the sequence.  I was able to export the sequence without any problems.  Hope this helps but I am running PPro on a Mac (iMac 27-inch, Late 2012, OS 10.12.6,  3.4 GHz Intel Core i7, 6 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX 1024 MB)


                      My encoder export settings were H264 (you tube HD).
