I'm having render fail problems in AE. This is what the log says didn’t delete empty file “comp.mov” because it was larger than expected. (26 :: 170). I am using AE 9.0 using Zackworks 3d to revamp a animation I did years ago, going from SD 720 to HD1080. I'm thinking it may be a ram problem. I only have 2GB in my Macbook Pro 2.6 ghz duo 2 core. but I would hate to get more ram if it's another problem. I don't usually render on my laptop but that is the only computer I have that has Zackworks on it. ( I don't do very much freelance anymore because I work for broadcast design company but this was a good client so I'm helping him out)
Any help would be great, thanks!
...going from SD 720 to HD1080. I'm thinking it may be a ram problem...
I would agree. Generally, an HD picture consists of five times more pixels per frame than an SD picture. So you're dealing with 5 times more data at any one time on this revamp. It gets worse if it's a 3D project.
You only had 2 gigs to start with. That's barely enough to keep the OS and the application running these days, to say nothing of actually using the application. So I'd say you need a whole lot more memory in that thing.
