# timebase denominator exceeds H.264 maximum

I am trying to do some video editing in Blender. I can render using AVI format, the problem appears when I am using ffmpeg.

The steps I am following:

• [Video Sequence Editor] Add->movie [...I select a video to import]
• [Properties] Output -> FFmpeg video, Encoding -> presets -> h264 in MP4
• [Info] Render-> Render Animation

The rendering immediately stops and shows an error:

Effective timebase denominator 3276700000 exceeds H.264 maximum

What am I doing so wrong? The process does just fine if I use AVI but I need to output mp4 for a school project.

• No it is a mobile phone video. Anyway I resolved using the animation button in properties and not info->animation – Francesco Pegoraro Apr 24 '18 at 14:16
