Hi everyone, this is my first post here, been a long time watcher and admirer. Anyway as for my problem, I've searched forum after forum for a solution but to no avail. As the title says, when ever I try to render anything and I mean ANYTHING (even a 10sec 320x240 black soild) it just freezes, elapsed time stays at zero and then sometimes after a while this error message pops up;
"after effects error: an output module stopped responding. the file may be damaged or corrupted. you may need to restart after effects."
...yet there is no damaged or corrupted file, and it will do this no what the output container is, unless however its an image sequence, in which case it renders out the project without a hitch.
I've already tried using all the solutions I could find, updating AE, frame purging, different ram settings, etc. Nothin, so if anyone could please help me out it would be greatly appreciated.
