Locate image buffer fault, but cannot find composition of this size?
on Apr 1, 2011 at 4:43:05 am

I have the 'cannot locate buffer for image size' fault, discribed for many times on this forum. But the problem is that there is no composition of this size or bigger.... Checked the whole project now about 6 times. Also the compositions embedded in other compositions..

Know al the tricks (secret menu, increase your RAM etc), but no luck...

Does anyone has a great new trick? A easy quick way to find the composition I'm looking for? Search for size?

Thanks is advance.
Charlot

Ah yes, what is also weird, is that AFX rendered a lot a frames before without giving this message, that won't render now anymore...

I'm sorry, but without details about the footage in your comp, your AE version, your OS, your computer's processors/cores, memory and storage, it's extremely difficult to make an accurate diagnosis.

The probleem appears to be magicly fixed... it rendering now, after trying for hours.
I also checked the psd footage, it is big and whit affects as glow and shadow, but not the size that After FX is talking about.
I am rendering on a MacPro,6 GB, AFX CS4, OSX, footage is al .psd layers.

Thanks for replying.

[Charlot van Otterloo] "The probleem appears to be magicly fixed... it rendering now, after trying for hours."

If it fails again, I suggest rendering to an image sequence instead of a movie. You can resume a failed image sequence render right where it left off.


[Charlot van Otterloo] "I also checked the psd footage, it is big and whit affects as glow and shadow, but not the size that After FX is talking about."

The dimensions add up -- if you have a big PSD, effects that go beyond the borders of the image's raster (like blurs, glows, and shadows) add to the size of the image buffer necessary to store the layer in memory.

I'm with Dave, we need a lot more info. But, on the chance that this works, have you rebooted recently?

AE does not use a scanline renderer, so the comp sizes in your project are not the only things to check. In addition to Dave's questions about your system, I'd add these about your project -- do you have any large images? Any layers with big blurs, glows, or shadows?

Yep, already am rendering as TIFF sequence.
I will keep it in mind that I won't use big psd files with glows etc next time. Thanks for the tip!

I see that you have a Mac with 6GB RAM. That may seem like a lot of memory to you, but if you're trying to use multiprocessing, you probably shouldn't.

I have a dual quad-core machine at work with 8GB RAM, and I don't use multiprocessing. I know I don't have enough memory to make it work efficiently.
