Encode failed

So I'm trying to put together a DVD with Encore.

First time I rendered my After Effects video as a "Lossless" .AVI file, 1280 x 720, no audio. Second time I tried resizing it to NTSC DV Widescreen 720x480 and including the audio at 48 kHz, but it was still lossless .AVI

Both times, I imported the files into Encore, added them to a timeline, but when I try to encode them, it fails. It does it right near the start.

If I import an audio-only .AVI file it works fine, so I know it's just video that's giving me trouble.

I've also now started trying random videos I have lying around, and the only ones that seemed to encode are .mov files.

So I re-rendered one of my files as a .mov file with .png compression, and it at least got a majority of the way through before it failed, but it still failed.

Anything else I can try?

So I can export a short 15 second .mov file from AE and it encodes fine. If I export the full version of the same movie using all the same settings, and it fails about 2/3 of the way through. There's 800 and 700 gigs free on either drive, so it's not running out of space.

Because of another "encode failed" thread I found on here, I've confirmed that all the files are contained in a path with short folder and file names with no spaces.

Check for failed case fans/other sources of overheat. Rendering is CPU and disk intensive; hardware problems can show up during rendering that don't appear during less demanding tasks.

And yet I've re-rendered from After Effects in 5 different formats and it hasn't had any problems yet.

I got it to work. Instead of trying to render the files directly from After Effects, I imported all my videos into Premiere and used Dynamic Link to send them to Encore. And that solved whatever formatting problem or something and it successfully encoded first try.
