Hi,
I have this project I want to render out in 4k using a .mov file with a h264 compression but for some reason it crashed on me every time I try to render it out. Do I have to render with specific settings or is it something wrong with my actual laptop.
Thanks
Ismail Ahmed

I don't think the H.264 allows a 4k image size. Try rendering to a different codec.

[Dave LaRonde] "I don't think the H.264 allows a 4k image size."

It does with the 5.1 and 5.2 levels http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264/MPEG-4_AVC#Levels

Thanks for responding. What would you recommend me use to render out without losing a lot of quality?

Determining the kind of file to make is dictated by the delivery specifications. We don't know what you need to deliver, so it's difficult to say.

This project is a visual effects pack I've made, like explosions and things. I want this to be the highest quality possible but not a .PNG sequence format. I have never actually rendered in 4k but I shoot things 4k with my GH4. Does this help?

Are the clips from the GH4 being re-compressed to a different codec?

I dont know what the GH4 spits out.

I do a ton of RED to 4K and yes even to h.264 (gulp).

But for YouTube 4K, I let them deal with it.

These explosions are rendered out from 3ds Max and not shot live. The GH4 comment was just describing my usual workflow. But with my GH4 I record to a 4k Ninja Blade monitor that records ProRes codec but this pack I want to render out needs to be in the best quality possible with the smallest file size since I am going to be selling this online. This is the first time I'm doing 3d work like this so I need a bit of help with the final render codec since I usually render out of After Effects with a .mov with a h.264 compression. What codec would I need to actually render out this project 4k?
