Red Screen Of Death - Media Encoder, After Effects, Premiere CS6
by Jaeson Jrakman on Aug 4, 2019 at 12:05:15 am
I am running CS6 on a Windows 7 PC. I just got my computer back from my computer guy, who tells me there are no viruses or memory/video card issues.
I was rendering routinely with no problems. Then, just the other day, everything I render in Media Encoder, After Effects, and Premiere renders for a while before going to a red screen.
I rendered out a .mov with no compression, and then I take that .mov and put it into Media Encoder to give me a compressed H264 or .wmv. I've done it hundreds of times. But this time I'm getting this problem.
In Media Encoder it gets somewhere halfway through, then the screen turns red and the time remaining starts counting up. I've also gone back to the original After Effects file to render it out again, and although I rendered it out successfully several times before, this time it turns to a red screen halfway through the render.
Also, I have my working files on an external hard drive and am rendering to my desktop on my C drive.
I found these two threads, but they didn't really help much:
Does anyone know why this issue would suddenly start when I've never had this problem before? How can I fix it?
Thanks in advance to anyone who is able to help!

Surprisingly, I threw in the same .mov into Handbrake, with no problem, and a compressed output with crystal clarity. Weird.
