Im trying to render a video on a macbook 2.4 intel core 2 duo with 4 Gb RAM
Im using a lot of particule matrix ,
At the begining the whole app just get stock
but after some time let me continui working
Now after effects just say failure on second 17 …and nothing else
Where I can see the whole report of the error to try to fix the mistake?
A few things to check:
– turn off OpenGL
– do not use multiprocessing
– render a file sequence ( tga or tiff) , this way if AE crashes you do not loose the whole render and you can start from where it stopped.
If you are getting rendering errors it might be the codec that is hogging RAM. If you enable “Purge every 20 frames during Make Movie” you will probably get around the problem. You can do this in the Secret preferences by holding down the Shift key and then select Preferences… from the menu. In the Preferences dialog box you can then choose the “Secret” option that will give you hidden features (they are hidden since they will cause AE to render more slowly.)
Don’t enable the other checkboxes, just write “20” in the text field. Also, make sure you enable the “Prevent DLL Address Space Fragmentation” under “Memory & Caches” if your on a Windows system.
This may help you out – good luck!
