After Effects CS5 Checkerboard Error (pixel bender)

I was just playing around with the pixel bender plugins inside CS5 and the pixel bender plugin checkerboard does not work.  I receive an error message.  Has anyone else been able to get it to work in AE?  Just wondering if there is something wrong with my machine.  Thanks.
Kevin Snyder

I've figured it out.
If you test like so, it works!
     dst.rgb = float3(0.0);
     if(mod(coordFloored.y, 50.0) < pixelSize(src).y)
            dst.rgb = float3(1.0);
        dst.a = 1.0;

    Are you saying you installed AE only from the CS5.5 package?

  • After Effects CS5 Configuration Error 3

    I'm really getting frustrated with Adobe After Effects CS5 right now. For the last month, I have been getting a message that says "Configuration Error 3, Please re-install the product". I uninstall it, then reinstall After Effects, and I still have the message. I even reconfigured my computer to try to fix the problem. It fixed it for about 2 hours then I got the message again. I tried uninstalling then used the Adobe Cleanup Tool, as recommended to me before. This did not work. I need to know how to fix this because now I have to use this for school.
    My computer specs:
    OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit)
    System Rating: 5.3
    Processor: AMD Phenom(TM) 9750 Quad-Core Processor 2.40 GHz.
    RAM: 8.0 GB
    Graphics Card: Nvidia GForce 9800 GT

    I wish I knew an easy answer to your problem. I haven't had to deal with Windows errors for several years now, but back in the day when I was working primarily on Windows machines I kept a system backup of the OS in a disk image using Norton Ghost. There are also probably other backup / restore options out there that work just as well.
    When I got into one of these "can't seem to solve it" scenarios, I simply restored the system OS using a good disk image from my latest clean install of just the OS and core programs. This took less than an hour and gave me a clean place to start, run the latest system updates, then install my critical apps. Once I had a clean install of my primary apps I ran another system backup using Ghost. Now you've got two clean places to bounce back to in case of a major system failure. Using the disk image you can be back up and running in about an hour no matter what happens.
    The key to making this work quickly is to keep all your work on something other than the Boot drive. If you don't have a separate backup of your work then the a restore from the disk image could take much longer. Either way, it's a much better solution than spending the better part of a couple of days reformatting the boot drive and re-installing the OS and all the programs from scratch.

  • After Effects CS5.5 error: crash in progress last logged message was 3300 DynamicLink 5

    Randomly when I start after effects CS5.5 and premiere pro CS5.5 I get the following error:

    What does "randomly" mean? What do you do, when the issue appears? Do you run games before? Use other programs? Also check the Event Viewer for the exact cause...

  • After Effects CS5 Startup Error

    Hi, I recently downloaded the After Effects CS5 trial for Mac OS X (64 Bit). I installed everything correctly (I think) and tried to start up the program, as I was very excited because I have heard great things about this program. I was unhappy to see a startup error pop up that says this, "After Effects Warning: Unknown BIB Error invalid encoding, BRV, 0 (83 :: 3)" I think it might be that I downloaded the 64 Bit instead of 32, but I do believe I'm running on a 64-bit operating system (Mac OS X 13-In. Macbook Pro), but I'm not sure. Some help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
    -John (AdobeAddict17)

    There is no 32bit version of CS5, but it's really unimportant. OSX has supported 64bit apps since 10.5.x and 10.6.x is native 64bit. So no problems on that end. The error you are seeing is a generic drawing error which may be caused due to misconfiguration of your graphics hardware or problems with font rendering. in the latter case, removing unnecessary fonts may help, for the graphics config a system update may have a newer driver. Also make sure that you have the Verdana font on your system. This has been known to be a problem with OSX 10.6, since it does not install the font by default.

  • After Effects CS5.5 (Error 3)

    Hello, Im trying to install After Effects CS5.5 (trial) on my computer. The installer works perfectly but when I try to load After effects up straight after the install I get an error telling me to reinstall which I have already tried plenty of times including on both of my different harddrives. If you guy's know any solution for this problem or can point me in the right direction that would be great.

    Chris001.123 I would recommend beginning with the Adobe Support Advisor.  It will automatically analyze your installation logs and look for a solution.  Beyond that the document Troubleshoot CS5 and CS5.5 installation with install logs details the steps required to review your installation logs.  I believe this is the document Mylenium was referring too.

  • After Effects CS5.5 Error Rendering known clean project even after Reinstall and after System Restore

    I've been getting frequent, but not consistent, errors during rendering AE CS5.5 projects with lots of 3D layers and lights. I have gone back to a known clean project to confirm the issue isn't with a particular project. The error is usually an error invoking the advanced 3D render engine. This is sometimes followed by a bad tracked memory id popup. But sometimes the program just hangs up.
    My System:
    i7 [email protected]
    24GB RAM
    Windows 7 professional 64 bit SP1
    NVidia Geforce GTX 570
    I have trashed the preferences, cleaned the cache, turned off rendering multiple frames, deleted Open GL, updated the graphics card drivers and even tried reverting to old graphics card drivers. Window's Memory Diagnostic Tool didn't find any problems. System File Checker Tool didn't find any corrupt files. My system drive is not fragmented.  I have reinstalled AE, reinstalled all of CS5.5, and did a system restore to a known working point (both with and without doing the Windows updates that have occurred since the restore point). None of this fixed the problem.
    I have tried the script BG Renderer to render in the background. I have consistently gotten the following error running the script, which I'm hoping will be a clue:
    "aerender ERROR An existing connection was forcible closed by the remote host.
    :Unable to receive at line 314
    aerender ERROR: After Effects can not render for aerender. Another instance of aerender, or another script, may be running; or, AE may be waiting for a response from a modal dialog, or for a render to complete. Try running aerender without the - reuse flag to invoke a separate instance of After Effects."
    The first two times I tried to render with BG Renderer, the error came right after closing AE. But I still got the same error if I left AE open and just sat and watched.
    Any help is appreciated.

    Update: I believe I have discovered the problem! It was a bad RAM stick. Windows Memory Diagnostic tool found nothing wrong, and nothing in my system seemed to be effected other than the ability to render complex AE projects with 3D layers. After a complete system restore to a known working point failed to help, I opened up the machine. Finding nothing loose, I methodically tested all the memory sticks to find the culprit. Everything is running smoothly now, albeit on less RAM.

  • Adobe After Effects CS5 & Quicktime ERRORS / crashing...

    Greetings,
    I am having a lot of AE CS5 crashing (app just quits for no reason while scrubbing) and other weirdness...like today, and I am being told on the Adobe Boards that it 's Quicktime related. I am rendering a 3 minute piece in ProRes 4:2:2 (1280x720p) to my RAID (no special plug-ins or anything) and I get the following error at the very end of every render:
    +After Effects Error: Rendering error while writing to file (insert my RAID path here). An output module failed. The file may be damaged or corrupted (-1610153464)+
    They are telling me the long number at the end indicates a Quicktime problem, which is unfortunately not so rare with 64bit AE due to how Apple does not really have a 64bit Quicktime and Adobe needs to work their way around some of that.
    Is this true? Can I fix this on my own or is there a 64-Bit QT Pro coming with the new Final Cut Studio? Any input is gratefully appreciated...thanks.

  • After Effects CS5.5 - Error ( 3 :: 3 ) please help!

    Do you know how to get rid of error ( 3 :: 3)?
    I have installed After Effects CS 5.5 on my new Mac, through the Adobe Creative Suite Help / Download CS 5.5 products. This error keeps on coming up when ever I open an old project or I'm about to save a new one. I have uninstalled, reinstalled, used the clean up tool provided by Adobe and nothing is working. I even chatted with Adobe Tech Support and the user informed me that my "issue needs expert assistance".  I could really use some help! Please and thank you!

    Thank you Rick! I have reset the permissions in the Library/Preferences folder, I don't know if I did it correctly so I made a before and after to show you what I changed.
    And here is the new warning message now. And when I tried to save a new test composition, the original error came up, so I'm assuming I didn't change the permissions correctly.

  • After Effects Preview Resolutions and Pixel Bender

    Hi,
    Hopefully this is a simple fix. I've encountered an issue with PB filters and After Effects's variable preview resolution. Consider this simple kernel:
    <languageVersion : 1.0;>
    kernel gridTest
    <   namespace : "quarterlightpictures.com";
        vendor : "Quarterlight Pictures";
        version : 1;
    >
        input image4 src;
        output pixel4 dst;
        void evaluatePixel() {
            float2 coordFloored = floor(outCoord());
            dst.rgb = float3(0.0);
            if(mod(coordFloored.y, 50.0) < 1.0)
                dst.rgb = float3(1.0);
            dst.a = 1.0;
    All it does is draw some 1px thick horizontal lines 50 pixels apart. This is fine, of course. However if I set the preview resolution in After Effects to 1/2, the lines are no longer drawn - the comp goes completely black. What I'd expect is the output to be subsampled in AE, and the lines to become 2px thick, but half as bright, which is what happens if I add a Grid effect and do the same.
    At 1/3 and 1/4 resolution the lines do appear sporadically - but not everywhere theyr'e supposed to be - and are drawn 3 and 4 pixels thick accordingly.
    Does PB work pre-or-post down-res? In other words, does a PB filter run, send its output to AE's comp window and then gets down-ressed for preview (if the resolution isn't full), or does it down-res the dource and pass it to PB? If it's the former then it should just work as I expect. If it's the latter, then are my source dimensions becoming halved, or are my pixel sizes becoming 2x2?
    Hope that makes sense. This is causing an issue with a plugin I wrote using PB, with things disappearing when adaptive resolution kicks in.
    Thanks,
    Christian

    I've figured it out.
    If you test like so, it works!
         dst.rgb = float3(0.0);
         if(mod(coordFloored.y, 50.0) < pixelSize(src).y)
                dst.rgb = float3(1.0);
            dst.a = 1.0;

  • Transfer FCP to After Effects CS5 XML Errors??

    I seem to be having a problem. I am working on a music video and need to put some final touches on it, mainly using the remove noise tool to get some grain out of a few shots that had bad lighting. I found a way to transfer my Final Cut Pro project to After Effects using XML with an AE script called FCP2AE. I placed it in my AE scripts folder, went to Final Cut Pro, selected my video, exported to XML and then went into AE to run the script which would allow me to open the Final Cut XML file (which is what the instructions told me to do). But for some reason everytime I try to open the XML file nothing happens at all. After Effects just sits there, it wont import the file. If I click on it AE says, "After Effects error: Can't import file "export.jsx": unsupported filetype or extension."
    Does anyone know why it is doing this? I would like to try and avoid exporting a Final Cut clip then importing to AE then exporting back out to Final Cut and importing all over again. If anyone has any answers please let me know. Thanks!

    Are you using the proper version of the "plug-in" for +your version+ of AE? I've used this plugin with AE CS3 & FCP, flawlessly, many times.
    So, I would contact Popcorn Island, the place you got the plug-in from. When I needed some tech support they were quick and on-point. Though I got the developer's direct email address after posting a comment, when I had issues. Contact me directly at kevincbrock at gmail DOT com. And I'll give you Ross's email address.

    I am not surprised by that.  You need more memory on your computer!  You went from a computer with only 3 GB RAM to one with just 2 GB RAM.
    Personally, I would not try to run AE on a computer with anything less than 8 GB RAM, and I would not try to use multiprocessing with it.  I would not try to use multiprocessing unless I had 16 GB RAM.
    After Effects uses a lot of memory.  You are in desperate need of more memory.  Until you get more, you will be unsuccessful when you use it.

  • How do you fix Error Code:7 (After Effects CS5)

    After a few minutes of working with any simple effects or presets in Adobe After Effects CS5 I will get this error below every time:
    "Your hardware configuration does not meet minimum specifications needed to run the application. The application must close. Please visit http://www.nvidia.com/page/support.html for help. Error code: 7"
    Once this pops up I have to close the program without saving. Why am i receiving this error and how can I fix it? By looking at the specs below of my laptop I can't understand how I could get an error saying that my configuration does not meet minimun specifications.
    Here are my computer specs:
    Lenovo IdeaPad Y570
    Intel i7-2670QM 2.20GHz
    8 GB RAM
    Windows 7
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M with CUDA & dedicated 1GB RAM
    NVIDIA driver version 8.17.12.6844

    Turn off your onboard intel graphics chip in the BIOS or configure your Optimus driver accordingly. Seems like AE is switching the graphics driver in the middle of things or the wrong one is used to begin with (that is the weaker intel chip). also simply updating all drivers may make the problem disappear.
