After Effects CS4 render problem
on Aug 6, 2014 at 10:36:17 am

Hi!
Please help me. I use After Effects CS4 and when i try to render it takes too much time, like almost 20 hours! And the video takes 20-40 gigabytes...I tried everything, even exporting with Adobe Media Encoder CS4. Adobe Media Encoder CS4 doesn't import ae-projects, it says AE is not installed.
Please help me to render my video.
I don't know why it takes so much memory, there's only intro, mp3 file, and mp4 file and that's all.
There is a problem with mp3 file too. I don't hear any audio after rendering, I don't know why AE doesn't render the mp3.

In addition to the link Todd gave about the ending file size, I would suggest taking that large file into an NLE (like Premiere) to add the audio and then use Premiere to create your final, compressed deliverable. AE had problems with MP3 files in older versions like yours. In the future, transcode them to a WAV for use in AE.

Also, as your questions seem to be from someone just starting out, I highly recommend going through some basic tutorials on how to use AE. Here's a link to some. It will probably help you avoid a lot of frustration.

I can't download Adobe Premiere...I tried to download every version of Premiere CS4 I find and it says that installation is not possible, because "...there are not enough resources to complete the installation..."or"...this version is not compatible with your computer...". Can you tell me how to repair this or where can I find a version of Adobe Premiere CS4 that can work?
Also I tried to use WAV files for AE and I doesn't work either.

How much space do you have on your hard drive? Where are you finding these downloads?

I would just use the Adobe Media Encoder to change it into a WAV instead of an MP3 and don't worry about Premiere.

Also, Premiere should have come with After Effects as a suite, unless you just bought AE by itself.

You don't need to get CS4; just get the latest CC version (unless your computer can't run the newer versions).

I have like about 100 empty gigabytes (300 in total).
I tried to download Premiere on site like this:http://kickass.to/adobe-premiere-pro-cs4-t3408453.html and other sites, too, but it doesn't work.
I used Audacity to change the MP3 into WAV, but the video renders without audio.
I downloaded AE CS4 for free. My computer reads only 32-bit programs, and only the older CS4 version is 32-bit, CS5 and CS6 are for 64-bit only, the latest CC, too.

Those do not look like legitimate places to download After Effects. I would be unsurprised to find pirated software is screwy.
And unlikely to offer further assistance.

It would help me out A LOT if you could give me the link where you downloaded AE. I think the legitimate version doesn't do so many errors. I would also need Adobe Encoder.If my computer reads only 32-bit programs then I can use only the CS4 versions, right?
Thank you for your help!

If you've paid for After Effects, you can download it from Adobe.
This page explains how to do it [link].
Be sure to read all of the instructions on the page or it won't work.
