Export/Encoding Error
on Sep 23, 2017 at 12:38:23 pm

There's this error that has been happening frequently for me. It doesn't happen all the time but sometimes. When I try to render with media encoder, I get an error like this:
- Encoding Time: 00:16:30
09/23/2017 06:23:57 AM : Encoding Failed
Export Error
Error compiling movie.

Render Error

Render returned error.

Writing with exporter: H.264
Writing to file: \\?\G:\Video Editing Files\Source Videos (RAW)\BiPolar.mp4
Writing file type: H264
Around timecode: 00:00:41:08 - 00:00:42:10
Rendering at offset: 41.267 seconds
Component: H.264 of type Exporter
Selector: 9
Error code: -1609629695


I don't know how to fix it, this is the second time it's happened before and it seems unavoidable. I tried rendering through render queue too and the error also happens. I have many effects such as transform, grid, genarts sapphire plugins, red giant trapcode, boris continuum complete, and red giant universe.

My PC specs are:
Ryzen 1800x
Corsair Vengeance DDR4 RAM
Windows 10
Gigabyte AX370 Gaming 3

and i am using the latest version of after effects.

I would recommend you render a lossless version first to see where the problem occurs. just send your comp to the render queue and render in the QT Animation format. if it fails, see where it fails in the timeline exactly and work your way from there to isolate the issue.
