After Effects Output Audio Causes Render Fail
on Aug 19, 2013 at 7:34:37 pm

So I have been working on this video for a few weeks now, no special effects just 3D layers and text.
I had set it to render Thursday afternoon and it finished Friday night after I left work.

So today I came into work played the video and I realized I didn't render the audio. (NICE!)

So I reset the render que (didnt change anything but render audio settings) and the render
doesn't even start, it just stays at "Stage: Compressing and Writing" for a few minutes then gives me
the good ole' output module has failed.

Ive already restarted AE, and my comp, I also purged the memory.
Im running windows 7 (64 bit) with 8gb RAM and Intel Core i7-3770S CPU @ 3.10ghz

I just dont understand how it rendered just fine, then added the audio and now it doesn't work.

Rendering to .AVI and now Im trying to .FLV and nothing seems to be working...

I have determined it is for sure the audio output because if I remove it, everything renders just fine again.

All the audio files are also .wav

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Ive been searching all day and have not been able to figure it out.

Does it work if you disable video output entirely in the output module, and output only audio?
