Hey Guys.

I have a problem when exporting .mp4 (H264) files from AE CS6.
I'm getting an error message every time I render out in H264, both CBR and VBR.

The error says: Rendering error while writing file "C:\..." (-1610153453).

Does anybody else know this problem?

I recommend against using the H.264 exporter in After Effects. It has many bugs that the H.264 exporter in Adobe Media Encoder does not have. I recommend using Adobe Media Encoder to create H.264 output from After Effects.

Kevin Monahan has a brief writeup of using Adobe Media Encoder to render and export After Effects compositions here:

Yeah. I'm doing it that way right now. It just annoys me, that i can't render h264 from AE. It's no problem to render a .mov in h264, but the .mp4 always makes an error on the last frame-render.
And in cs5.5 there were no problem.

Hi Sebastian, I'm having the same issue from yesterday on ae CC
Did you solve it?
I emptied the cache, I hope is not because of that.

Hey Marco.
Unfortunately i didn't solve it. I just stopped using the h264 export from AE. It's just not worth the hassle. Sometimes it works, other times it crashed. I've even gotten a bsod after the export, wich made the project file unreadable. So I just do my h264 render in media encoder. Actually the only thing I render from AE is animation .mov.

If you figure it out, I would be glad to hear from you :)
