Black Screen Halfway Through Playback/Rendering
on Oct 31, 2015 at 1:15:03 am

Hi Guys/Gals,

I've just finished editing a short film and halfway through playback or rendering, the preview screen, video in the timeline and final rendered video are all black. Audio continues to work throughout, but it does not say the video is offline.

I have tried downgrading and upgrading to the newest quicktime with no success. I've also tried unchecking the usual 'media offline' settings in preferences. Changing rendering from GPU accelerated to CPU only wielded no solution either.

Im using entirely .m4v files, apart from a few newer .mov files which I added later. Weirdly, the .mov files always work, even once all the others have gone black, so I'm presuming this is a problem with the .m4v files?

I have to hand in the work in the next couple of days, so I don't have time to re-edit.

Please help!!!!!

Have you gone into Options | Preferences | Video | GPU Acceleration and turned it Off? Sometimes black renders are due to video card driver problems and turning off GPU acceleration fixes them. This is NOT the same as GPU render settings.

You dont need to re-edit, those .m4v files are obviously the problem, so
you simply render out separately each of those .m4v files to a quicktime
or AVI etc format and simply replace them accordingly back on the timeline.
