Ruler issue, timeline and full length project missing after bounce
on Feb 23, 2017 at 1:18:17 am

Hi guys,

So i usually use FCP and i use AAE just now to utilise some of the effects. My problem is this and I will try an explain it as best i can. I create a project and in the composition settings i will define the full length of the project, eg the length of my DJ music mix. In this case it is 1hr 7min.

I drop in the mix, and create solids/audio spectrum effects to play over the video (music mix). When i render and bounce the project the final result is 59mins.. and it cuts off and i dont know why. When I look at the project i can see its 1hr 7min in the composition settings, but when i look at the 'regions' and the ruler i see that the very end of the video clips and solids are out of the screen (edge of screen) and i cant drag the ruler to match the clips.

Ill use FCP as an example here i just set the area that needs to be rendered and easy but obviously you do things differently in AAE but ive no idea how to. If anyone knows what i am talking about here i would appreciate the advice, Thanks

Oh, my.

Assuming you're familiar with the way AE works -- and going by your description-- I'd just adjust the comp length in the comp settings. Make it a bit longer than it should be. Then just find the end of the audio and make it the end of the Work Area. Everything should render out.

I also would NOT use mp3 files. They occasionally make AE go buggy. Convert them to wav or aiff files.

An hour and seven minutes? REALLY?

You can start by using the two recommendations above. No matter what you do, you need to report back with more information if it doesn't work.
