Render stops unexpected without error message
on Oct 22, 2017 at 12:36:13 pm

Hello everybody,

I have a problem here with a project I am working on for quite a while.
The project was created in AE2017, worked fine and started to act weird. I tried to update to the new AE2018 but the problem still exists.

Every time I render the sequence the process just stops at a certain frame without any error message.

As I was looking for the problem in the forum I found that this may be connected to a corrupt file. So I started searching for it.

All my layers are connected to one null-object that changes scale and position with hold frames in order to create some kind of twitch effect. I figured that this may be the corrupt file because the render always stoped at a point with a hold keyframe.
I started to edit the values of this keyframe until the render got past it, but then stopped at another point (where it didn't stop before).

The weird this is that this just started from one day to the other and I have no idea how to fix it, because trying to change every keyframe would be incredibly tedious.

Any suggestions would help as I am getting closer to the deadline and time is running out.

Thanks a lot!

I was able to export it without problems from a different and older computer.

Any thoughts on that?

To me, that would indicate problems between the application and the operating system or a different video card and the driver.

Since it works on one computer and not another, I'd try these standard troubleshooting steps for Ae:

1) Clear your cache. Edit > Purge > All memory and disk cache...

2) Reset your preferences. Hold Ctrl+Alt+Shift (Windows) or Command+Option+Shift (Mac OS) while starting After Effects.

Hey Walter,

thanks a lot for the advice.
Unfortunately I get the same result as before ...

Can you identify the differences between the computers?
