Rendering Video from After Effects

1. Are Your Composition Settings Correct?

In Aftereffects, click on the composition in the project window, then under the composition menu, choose composition settings.

For my courses your Settings shouldt match the settings. If you are working on an animation with a low frame rate - 10, 12, or 15 - then set this in Frame Rate to match. This will generate a smaller file and will simplify editing multiple layers and keeping them aligned.

2.Render Settings

1. In Aftereffects, select the composition that you'd like to render in the project window.
Go to File->Export->Add to Adobe Media Encoder Queue
3. In Media Encoder App
set format type to H.264
              set preset to Vimeo 1080p HD (you gotta scroll down to find it)              
4. Click on the words "Vimeo 1080p HD" to access further settings. In this dialogue box:
              Change the "Output Name" at the top of the screen and set a location to render to.
              Change Bitrate Encoding to CBR - keep Mbps at 16
              If you don't have/want audio, uncheck "Export Audio"
              Select "Use Maximum Render Quality" at the bottom of the page.

5. Click OK, Then to begin render press the small green triangle at the top of the queue window.
