Issues with exporting 4K 16:9 composition from AE
on May 6, 2015 at 7:36:40 am

Hello.
yesterday I've tried to export a 4K 16:9 composition from AE.
Here the export settings:



Unfortunately the export resolution is merely 2000 by 2000.



Does anyone know, how to fix this issue?

Thanks a lot!

You missed that little "Settings mismatch" button in the lower left. It would tell you that the resolution restriction for this setting is 2000x2000. You could send this to Adobe Media Encoder and render out an H264 with a proper level for the resolution.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264/MPEG-4_AVC#Levels

Also why are you resizing the render to the same resolution?

Thank you a lot, Tero!
Sorry for being so blind)
By resizing I was making sure, that the output is really 3840x2160.
Thanks one more time, you just made my day!

Also, I wouldn't recommend encoding to the QuickTime container with the H.264 codec if you can avoid it. It kinda stinks. There are other, better h.264 options. And I wouldn't encode h.264 out of AE at all. (It's so bad, they removed that functionality from current versions.)

I'd recommend rendering to an intermediate codec (QuickTime with the Photo-JPEG codec should be fine) and then use the Adobe Media Encoder to make your h.264

Thank you, Michael! I will reconsider my codec choices (;
There is still a huge gap in my education.
Such comments, however are helpful.
Tnx!
