error compiling movie - render error. can't export- what to do?
on Oct 26, 2016 at 8:31:21 am

I am trying to export a movie as Apple Pro Res 422 (HQ) 1920X1080 ; 25 fps - length: 4:01 and when I try to export it I get an error message "error compiling movie
render error - render returned error". My system is an iMac from 2012 3,4 GHz Intel Core i7, 32 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2048 MB. I am trying to export straight out of Premiere.

The time code where the error occurs is a bunch of JPGs sliding in (with a blur on them and then the blur fades out)- that "animation" goes on for a while and Premiere doesn't seem to struggle until one point which I do not fully understand because it is exporting the beginning of the animation just fine and goes on for a while until it chokes.

Turn off any GPU acceleration. If that doesn't work then reboot your computer.

Thank you. Still trying to find this setting. Is it under Preferences or in the Render Dialogue or in Media Encoder? According to google it's Preferences- Preview but I do not have "Preview" under Preferences.

I've used the Media Encoder this time and I've toggled between all 3 Render Engines (OpenCL, CUDA and Software based even though I am not even sure if this graphics card supports CUDA- I don't think so) and yet I am not able to export it. Is there ANY WAY to export this file? I am really desperate by now. Here is the error from the Media Encoder Log:

------------------------------------------------------------

When I go to the Project Settings and I change the Renderer to „Mercury Playback Engine Software Only“ I INSTANTLY get an error:



I really don't know what to do. Thanks a million.

Clean media cache database, under preference media.

I've already cleaned the media cach, I've set a new location where the media cach gets saved and a new location for the media cach files. None of this worked. I've rebooted the Mac countless of times. I've tried all 3 render engines where software would die on frame 1.

I created a new sequence with Preview File Format: I-Frame Only MPEG (I had also previously tried Quick Time Pro Res 422) and I unticked "Composite in Linear Color (requires GPU acceleration or max render quality) and then I copy pasted the part where it crashes into that new sequence and rendered it without problems.

Copying the entire sequence into this new sequence would cause it to crash AGAIN. So I deleted the part that caused it to crash and replaced it with the previously exported part. Of course I do not like to have hard coded videos where I can not change anything any more. I do not like this solution at all and I would love to know what is going on / what causes this and how I can export the entire sequence without problems and having to stitch exports together again.

Thanks for ANY advice. I will try EVERYTHING you say in the hopes to get this fixed because I am afraid I might bump into this again and then I won't find any way to get it out of Premiere at all.

I am sorry but I do not understand what you mean by that. Trash what exactly and where (or how)? Thank you.

One other thing - any audio? If so, is any of it MP3 files?

If you do have MP3 audio files, convert them to uncompressed WAV using Audition and replace the MP3 files with the WAV files.

System:
Dell Precision T7600 (x2)
Win 7 64-bit
32GB RAM
Adobe CC 2015.02 (as of 6/2016)
256GB SSD system drive
4 internal media drives RAID 5
Typically cutting short form from HD MP4 and P2 MXF.

Yeh I know that Premiere doesn't like Audio files and that it's best to convert those. So I've duplicated my entire sequence and deleted any audio and even unticked export audio in the audio dialogue (just to make sure) and still it would crash.

I had exactly the same error and for me it was fixed after I did the following:
- Close all programs
- Run CCleaner or similar software
- Restart PC
- Try rendering with media encoder again

I did not have to make any compromises with my settings afterwards, so I do think its something in a cache somewhere.
Really do hope this helps (if you even still have this issue) if not I'm posting this for other users that come across this thread while googling this error code (thats why I'm here)

I've had that happen over the years. It always seems to be very robust transition or a short clip that is from some unusual source. Hang in there and eliminate one small thing at a time.....
