Certainly. Just render as an image sequence. Remember to change the frame range though in the Render Queue for each past so you don't over-write the earlier frames.

ok so I started rendering as an image sequence in AE and it crashed at the same usual point, in media encioder it just stops the render but doesnt crasah, in ae it completely crashes the program. This is hard to figure out, what should I do mark?

What do you have going on in the comp at that point?

The ususal diagnositic process is to disable effects, expressions, and the like until you isolate whats causing the problem. Since it's happening at the same spot, it should be easier to find than something intermittant. Keep sleuthing.

and it for some reason crashes when it tried to render a transition, i tried disabling it in the comp but it still renderred out, not sure if im doing that wrong

I've seen super-long Windows file name paths do weird things...please try exporting to the root drive once. Not sure why your exports would be directed to an "auto-save" folder.

Shorten up the "Save to" destination path of the export file

1) Probably not related to your crash, but tidy up your work. You are sure to lose track of your project file the way you're working. Your logs show that you're rendering an auto save of an auto save of an auto save of an auto save of your original project, which you put in "New folder." If you have to go back an use an auto save for some reason, once you open it, do a "Save As" and store the AEP back in your project folder. Use version numbers, and use the Increment and Save feature often.

2) Your logs don't show the results of encoding the image sequence.

3) Don't use AME to write an image sequence. Use the After Effects Render Queue directly:

thanks walter I really need to improve how i organise all ym folders, that is very amatuer of me to overlook that and the point oof saving the auto saved project as a new one is very wise, thank you.
I only render it in AME because AE will always crash without fail when I render it in there,.
Thanks Walter hopefully I can get this figured out.

I recently had a similar render issue and it was down to 1 layer buried down a few subcomps. in AE scroll the playhead along the timeline and look for a point (probably where the render crashes) where the display stops updating - if this is the case you need to look at exactly what's going on in the sequence at that point and turn off layers until the display updates again. Then you will at least know what's causing the freeze/crash and will have to find a way to replace the media/effects at that point

My particular layer I decided was probably just too big (it was a huge texture for the background in a 3d comp) so I used the scale comp script to halve the size and got things working again (i also unlinked it's proxy file - it may have been a corrupted/too large image file)

Heres what makes the least sense in all of this Joe, it always crashes at a point in the render than has no 3rd party plug ins, just a few plug ins used to make a transition that occurs over two adjustment layers.
I will have to keep at it and see if your advice about looking for the frame it freezes in the preview, hopefully I can figure this out, the only thing I can think, which has just come to me is that the motion blur that i turned onn on the adjustment layers might bne causing, if i remember rightly the transition uses AE's motion blur but idk I can try disabling it to see if it renders but then how do i render it with the motion blur if that turns out to be the issue
