I´m using a map, on tiff format for a composition. When i try to render it, it gets stuck on somes frames. when i try to make the render lighter, by changin the video format of the render, the quality gets worst. how can i solve this?

Don't use multiprocessing.
Don't use Open GL
Check any other footage in the comp. Here's why:

Dave's Stock Answer #1:

If the footage you imported into AE is any kind of the following -- footage in an HDV acquisition codec, MPEG1, MPEG2, mp4, m2t, H.261 or H.264 -- you need to convert it to a different codec.

These kinds of footage use temporal, or interframe compression. They have keyframes at regular intervals, containing complete frame information. However, the frames in between do NOT have complete information. Interframe codecs toss out duplicated information.

In order to maintain peak rendering efficiency, AE needs complete information for each and every frame. But because these kinds of footage contain only partial information, AE freaks out, resulting in a wide variety of problems.
