Sometimes when i work in After Effects and make a RAM preview the rendering stops and AE gives me following error "PSD-Dateiformatfehler (-16024)" which translates to "photoshop file error (-16024)".
I wasn't able to find anything about error 16024 on google.
The bad thing is that AE corrupts my files and screws them up while working in AE.
I have to overwrite the bad frames with good ones from my backup to make the error disappear. I'd be really f$%§'ed if I wouldn't have my backup footage.
This error also happens sometimes when I export TIFF sequences. (I use 24 bit RLE-encoded TIFFs)
When I load the broken frame of a corrupt sequence into Photoshop the file looks like this:
Click to download TIFF (166kb) (http://www.europeantranslation.de/notwist/shot_001_reference_ver002_strich_00064.tif)
It has weird magenta lines/glitches.
I really don't know what causes this. I suspect that it's some sort of filesystem error and not AE but I really don't know.
Maybe somebody else experienced the same kind of errors too...
I'm working on an AMD XP2000+, nvidia Quadro DCC, 1768 mb RAM, AE 6.5 Pro/winXP Pro and dedicated render harddisks. The project is HDTV (1280x768 @ 25fps progressive).
And last but not least:
Usually I exported as TGA and not TIFF. I never experienced errors exporting Targas.
But the people I work with use TIFF files, so I do too.
What's the actual difference? What is better to use?
Maybe some kind soul can give me some insight on that.
Thank you for reading!
