Render stuck at 99%

PostThu Feb 14, 2019 8:20 am

Hello,

I am experiencing problems with rendering. It always gets stuck at 99%, although rendering in other formats works. I can't even cancel the render, I have to close Resolve from the task manager. Rendering other projects works fine.

Format I am using: mov (QuickTime)
Codec: H.264
Resolution: 1920x1080
Framrate: 24 (clip framrate is 70)

Quality is set to best, Encoding Profile and Key Frames are both set to "Auto".
It's kind of urgent, I would appreciate some help, thank you!

If it's urgent, let me suggest a workaround: export in a high-quality format like DNxHR. If that renders completely, load the result and try to encode that to H.264 (or use ffmpeg).

What OS, Studio or free version, are you using NVIDIA or QuickSync acceleration?

I am on Windows 10, and I am using DaVinci Resolve 15 (free version). I don't know about acceleration, but I have an AMD system (CPU and GPU).

If it's urgent forget about it and export intermediate file (ProRes, DNxHR etc.) and use other tool (Handbrake etc) to make h264. It will be way quicker than trying to find out what is the problem.

Also- have you waited for long? If you have "Network Optimisation" ticked then Resolve may be re-writing file to move MOV atom to the beginning of the file. If file is fairly big then this will take some time.

It means there is some serious problem on your machine (or issue with particular project). Is it complex or has 3rd party plugins?
