large files giving me an encoding pain
on Jan 12, 2016 at 12:07:27 am

Media Encoder is giving me a headache. I know there's one little thing I'm doing wrong- but I can't figure it out. I've tried different settings for my 21 minute 2k sequence- the files are huge. I'm using the H.264 1080p 23.976 setting- (amongst some others), and the thing keeps crapping out. I'm now trying the above pre-set but lowering the level from 4.2 to 4.0 Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Try cleaning out the cache, it can fill up easily with larger file processing.
Go to Media Encoder Preferences, Media section, Media Cache Database, select Clean.

Thanks, Joe- I tried that- but I think my problem was several clips coming off of a drive designated as FAT. I copied that media over to a friendlier drive, manually re-cut those shots back into my system, and was at least able to make a complete 20 minute 1920 x 1080 Quicktime which suited my needs. I may be back though for more help!

I'm learning a lot about encoding large files- but I still haven't cracked this nut. While trying to make H264 1920 x 1080 outputs of my 2K material, my system can handle a sequence less than 7 minutes, but we get a file error every time we try for something longer- especially if there are a lot of cuts and fx. Any solutions? Is it a RAM, BIT rate, or another problem? Thanks for any help.

That is very odd indeed?

Are you using H264 the wrapper or H264 the codec?

What is your graphics card? I've had problems encoding out of After Effects because certain effects weren't supported by my card. So may want to look into that.

If you can only export 7 minute chunks, is it possible to export it in 7 minute chunks, and then re-piece them together for another export with the different chunks connected? That way it's maybe less cuts and more compressed, and would require less processing power.

I'm definitely no expert but will help if possible!
