Lag during playback even after encoding
by Michael Martino on Oct 2, 2014 at 5:02:24 am
I am using 15" MacBook Pro (2012) 750GB HD, 16GB RAM
OS X 10.9.5 2.4GHz Intel Core i7
After Effects CC 22.214.171.124
Adobe Media Encoder CS6
I made a Lyric Video with just a solid Layer Backround and a lot of Animated Text. And I want to export it straight from After Effects as I am not planning to do any additional editing to it.
So right now I am clicking Composition>Add to Adobe Media Encoder Queue
Then my Media Encoder (CS6) application pops up, with my composition already selected.
I then click, Web Video>YouTube>720 HD (format H.264, frame size 1280x720 16Mbps)...my video is 1280x720 btw
Now I have my big composition being compressed and supposedly ready for YouTube which is my main purpose for the video. But once the video finises rendering it still lags during playback in iTunes, QuickTime and I even uploaded it to Youtube to see what would happen and it lagged while playing on Youtube too!
I have spent so much time researching and re-exporting/rending, trying to fix this problem and have come up with no solutions. Please someone tell me how to fix this...
The only thing I can think of is that the After Effects CC is compatible with the Media Encoder CS6???
