    After Effects Won't Render Using H.264

    Comp. 792-YeIbLU Community Member

      OK, I am trying to use H.264 codec but I keep getting an error and I can't figure out why.  I select (Composition > Add to Render Que), then I select "Output Module > Custom and select "Lossless" and select H.264 and then get the message below:

       

      "After Effects: For reliable output with H.264 compression, please choose it directly from the Output Module Format menu instead of via QuickTime. (44 :: 81)"

       

      So I then did as it said and selected the drop down arrow beside Output Module and then selected "Custom" and then selected H.264. and then I get the same message:

       

      "After Effects: For reliable output with H.264 compression, please choose it directly from the Output Module Format menu instead of via QuickTime. (44 :: 81)"

       

      An idea what's going on? Why does it give me this message when I am doing it the way it is telling me? How can I render using H.264?

       

       

      Thanks
