Can't render h.264 from my tiff sequence
on Jan 11, 2013 at 9:56:59 am

Hello,

I have a 2K tiff sequence of a 90min film and am trying to render an h.264 file for the BluRay from CS5.5 @ Hackintosh, but it freezes on the last frame - i.e. it takes around 6 hours to render from start to finish and when it reaches the end, it just freezes with no further response.

Maybe it's worth mentioning, that I'm using a 60gb SSD as a system drive and it gets filled up during the render.

Is there a way to fix it?

Thanks.

Rendering h.264 codec from After Effects is not recommended as h.264 uses temporal compression.

Go for Adobe Media Encoder to render .h264.

I just figured it our myself and am currently waiting for Media Encoder to finish encoding.

Thanks for the answer, though.

Vishesh,
Thanks for continuing to recommend Adobe Media Encoder over the Render Queue for H.264 output. It's the right way to go.
