I'm working on a personal project and running into some weird glitches when I render. I encountered them in the viewer, restarted my computer and they went away, but when I render to quicktime they show back up again. The bug is basically a black weird shape with either a white outline or black dots surrounding it showing up here and there.
Here is a screenshot: <a href="http://i1.creativecow.net/u/101446/renderbug.jpg">renderbug.jpg</a>
It's a 32 bit project, and the only 3rd party plug ins running are particular and video copilot's twitch (both updated). The only thing funky is for one of the graphics I'm using a masked pdf--would that cause something like this? I've had a similar glitch when my logic core on my laptop was frying itself, but that affected the whole system, not just an after effects render.
I'm not sure what mp4 footage you are referring to, unless you mean the pdf graphic? otherwise there is no footage, just a few tiffs, and a pdf with a mask on it. Thanks for taking a look at my thread!
what is in the screen shot is an mp4 render out of After Effects using the 'h.264' render module preset. i have rendered out a quicktime uncompressed (animation), quicktime pro-res 422, and an h.264 mp4 (i just wanted to have a small file to upload).
I turned the comp to 16 bit and did a render and the glitch has gone away, but of course I have a lot of banding and it doesn't pop color wise as much as it did before. I'm going to turn 32 bit back on and see if the glitch comes back.
