I am editing a 4 minute slide show with 43 pictures in it. I want to export it to for use online (retirement video for a friend). It does have a good amount of layers with some glares, etc. I tried to export to H.264 and it fails 31 minutes in and continues to take forever to render.
What can I do here to correct this? What is the best way to export this?
Without knowing your computer, settings... I would suggest exporting as an image sequence and then import that into your editor of choice for the final. Even if the render fails, you can just pick up with the last image that correctly rendered.
