    Multi Pass H.264

    I've been trying to lay off a 48 minute film using the H264 multipass setting. I have a 250GB C drive. I'm getting a window that states that the drive is full. Is there a way to bypass the C drive or some other option. Thank you.

    In your export settings you should be able to choose another drive. Do you have one?

    Is that a Quicktime preset? I would absolutely ignore that and use the modern MOV or MP4 export tabs in stead. Way faster an better color management.

    Check under Settings > Project > General and adjust your Temp path to a different drive in additional to making sure your media creation settings and export settings are also on your desired drive.

     

    Job ter Burg:

    And because the modern way doesn't let you set keyframes or control how the bitrate is apportioned at all, you may end up with horribly blocky frames following major scene (image) changes.

    For sure the new way is fast but quality may vary. While the old way is slow and dependable.

    I think it has to do with the temp folder on my C drive. I'm trying to remove files to make more space on the drive.

    I emptied the temp folders but that wasn't enough. I only have 25GB of free space.
