I've had a problem with AE for a long time now (have used AE for more than a year now) and it's whenever add something to the render queue and I click "Render" it doesn't render anything, and I have to stop it entirely, then it freezes for 5 - 10 seconds and gives me an error message saying:
"After Effects error: An output module stopped responding. The file may be damaged or corrupted. You may need to restart After Effects"
I try delete the un-rendered project but it freezes and give me the same message, then I close After Effects, and then I try opening it, but it crashes, leaving no report, and I then have to restart my Mac (MacBook Air).
It's happened with projects that I've created and worked on for around 10 - 15 minutes, and I'm unsure what's the problem. In the current project that has this issue has pre-comps, music, pictures, recordings etc.
