I'm trying to render a small clip. One solid layer with a 3D Warp (Zaxwerks) applied. I also have a camera set up. I'm just providing these details in case they are relevant. Output to a tiff sequence, RGB+Alpha , Straight Unmatted. It looks like it's about to start when I hit render but returns something that I can't decipher:

After Effects error: Failure during Render (4)
(25 :: 60)

This is in Windows XP (32 bit).

I'm thinking maybe this is a system failure, due to this system not being very robust for something like 3D Invigorator. P4 2.5ghz, 1.5 333 ram. Maybe it's something else. Anyone have an idea please let me know. Thanks.

Stuart

If that's the only effect, it's probably the culprit. Make sure (task manager) you haven't run out of RAM.

Did you post on the Zaxwerks forum?

Yeah, I should have checked task manager. Just a vague error I thought I'd ask here first.

Thanks

Almost all AE errors are vague to us. ;-)

But AE has been pretty well-behaved since 6.0. The causes of errors are generally:
- wonky or old plugins
- no more RAM
- no more disk space
- rendering a >4GB file on FAT32 drives without segmenting being set up
- uisng MP3 audio sources, or MPEG-like video sources

Anybody else?

I have 1 old plugin and AE just crashes if I try to tweak params. With this it only complained when I tried to render, so my suspicion is it was not the plug.

Im pretty sure its Zaxwerks. I just got the exact same error when trying to ram-preview my project (with only solids zaxwerks, and a camera), and while working on a PC I can not render with zaxwerks, but when I render on a mac I have no problem.

I too, am getting the same error with Zaxwerks Invigorator.

Just a guess, but it seems to occur when I have more than one 3D element in the scene at a time. I rendered each seperately and it worked... having to combine them all in the end (Use precomp proxies to make this easier on yourself).

Cofig: HP xw8400 Dual Quad Zeon 2.66 with 4GB RAM. /3GB switch with USERVA=2900 to allocate 2.8 GB RAM to AE. NVIDIA Quadro FX 5500.
