Memory shortage error while wmv encoding

Question:

When I tried to output a movie in a wmv format,
I got errors informing of memory shortage or
saying "Output failed. Please try again after confirming settings".

Answer:

It is Microsoft specification that it uses a lot of memory at wmv movie creation.
Depending on resolution, length and systems environment, it is possible to get the error.

You are kindly requested to lower the resolution, shorten the movie, add up memories,
or use other formats like mp4 to work around the issue.
