Arten Koronidasexport length limit?
by on Jan 13, 2017 at 1:53:19 pm

Hi! I am in need of rendering a project that should be as long as possible. Ideally....entire days. Beside HD space limitations, is anyone aware of render length limits software-side?
Working on OsX El Crapitan, PP/AE CC 2014 (or FCPX if these wouldn't work).

Thank you!

There isn't a limit I am aware of. But. . . days?? I think any rendering limit will be the least of your issues.

System:
Dell Precision T7600 (x2)
Win 7 64-bit
32GB RAM
Adobe CC 2015.02 (as of 6/2016)
256GB SSD system drive
4 internal media drives RAID 5
Typically cutting short form from HD MP4 and P2 MXF.

If I remember correctly the duration limit for one sequence is 24 hours.

[Tero Ahlfors] "If I remember correctly the duration limit for one sequence is 24 hours."

That makes sense -- that's the limitation of time code.

A file that plays back for DAYS??? It would be interesting to know why the OP regards that as necessary. Plus I think the OP needs a little reality check.

Tero is correct. There's a 24hr sequence limit. AME is pretty fast but could you imagine the wait time for a 24hr sequence ☺

I see. Thanks for the answer. That's what I remember reading actually. I dug up some forum where 24h was mentioned as a limit aswell, and somebody also mentioned an Avisynth script to avoid dealing with the software limitations. Any creative ideas? I honestly have no idea what avisynth does and the thread was from 2002 or so...but hey, you'll never know until you try.

Wow. A video file that runs for days.

Well, pump me full of coffee and insert a catheter, I'm off to see the profound revelations within a days-long piece of video.

Hey Dave - how about a 720-hour film, to be shown once, then be destroyed?

The web site makes it look like an Ingmar Bergman movie. Even Bergman had the good sense to keep his stuff under 4 hours.

I guess I don't share the psyche of an artist who'd want to make such a long work... and I bet they're glad I don't!

I'd suggest that you split these renders up and combine them at playback. Even if the final playback will be days long, there's no reason that it has to be a single media element.
