CS5 Rendering MPEG2 Problem: Time Sensitive
on Jul 28, 2010 at 7:11:17 pm

Long post short. I'm trying to render a 30 minute video in MPEG2 from a PSD Sequence, Audio File, and 1 other QT movie. It works fine on the work iMac (3.06 GHz, 4GB 1067 RAM) but when i try from my personal laptop it tries for a few minutes then says UNKNOWN ERROR (-1610153453)

My laptop is running 10.6.4 with 2.5 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and 4GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM

I have a multitude of these to do, and only the iMac to utilize so I enlisted my personal laptop to help out. (I am acutely aware that this is not a desirable set up)

Any insight would be IMMENSELY helpful

Thanks,

Rob

Side note I should mention, I'm keeping the files on an external hard drive with a FireWire 800 connection while working from the laptop. Would that cause this?

Dave's Stock Answer #3:

Don't use AE to compress files for final delivery. The various compressors are there only to make quick 'n dirty files showing a project's progress to producers, clients, the kids, etc. AE is incapable of doing multipass encoding, a crucial feature that greatly improves the image quality of H.264 and MPEG-type files in particular.

Render a high-quality file from AE, and use a different application to do the compression. Popular ones are Adobe Media Encoder, Sorenson Squeeze and Apple's Compressor, which comes bundled with Final Cut Suite. Even compressing in Quicktime Pro is better than compressing in AE.

I seem to recall that AE 10 has fits with one particular version of Mac OS, and I think it's on your laptop. I THINK it is... I don't know this for a fact. I'd try to use the laptop to convert to MPEG instead of run AE.

Would you suggest trying to downgrade back to 10.6.3 for the time being?

If I knew I had my facts straight, yes.

But I don't -- I read a post from Todd Kopriva of Adobe on it a few weeks ago in this forum. You could do a search using Todd's name, and you might stumble on it.

Hmmmm, I haven't really experienced any issues like that. Only the render problem. But I'm going to stick with what you mentioned, it seems like that's doing the trick.

Thanks Dave.

Follow up status report. I tried rendering with turning OpenGL on, which I thought was standard, and everything's working fine again.

Wow! That's the first time I ever heard about fixing a problem by turning Open GL ON.
Typically, it's the other way around -- turn Open GL off, problem goes away.

try to render without the audio, if it works then export the audio (wav) then mux with tsmuxergui
