I have a project I did for work. It's 1min 30sec long. It only has 1 camera, a few lights, and a couple of lighting layers. I have tried numerous times to render it out and every time I do it with animation quicktime setting when I go to play it it freezes about 10 seconds into it? I tried to click forward and then it starts skipping frames. I tried rendering in a different setting HD1080/30s but the quality is not there. I need it to be 1920x1080. Please advise on what my options are?? Thanks in advance.
Almost any workstation will have a hard time playing a full HD Animation uncompressed file. Thus the freezing and skipping of frames. Your render is fine. You just need to take that to a compression software, like Adobe Media Encoder, and compress it to mpeg2 or H264.
