    Output module failed?

    dkmiles Level 1

      All of a sudden in one of my projects I'm unable to render my comps. I'm getting a dialog that says: "Rendering error while writing to the file... an output module failed. The file may be damaged or corrupted." I'm simply trying to render out a lossless Quicktime. But it looks like in the output options, there are suddenly no Quicktime formats available.

       

      I tried reinstalling AEP from the disks but that didn't help.

       

      This project was working fine when I shut it down on Friday.

       

      Any help or ideas would be MOST APPRECIATED!

       

      Thanks!

          Well after messing around for a few hours, I can answer my own question...

           

          I deleted and created new output modules, and all of a sudden it's working again!

           

          Apparently there was a corrupt video file in the project that screwed things up originally. I also trashed that.

            dk, thanks for closing the thread. Hardly anyone ever does that aournd here and thousands of threads go unresolved. Closing your thread with a workable solution is even better.
