There are a number of things that might lead to an error in Splice. Often, the app recognizes how to fix the issue itself. Otherwise, you can try some common solutions. Before attempting any of these, please check that you're running the most recent versions of iOS and Splice.
Check if you get the same error message on all your projects or only on a single one.
Check for any faulty files on your timeline. In particular, consider the following:
- All pictures and videos shot with your phone will work fine. However, the app may not recognize files from an external source, such as WhatsApp.
- Check that all assets in the project are saved to your phone's storage. Assets saved to Cloud sources such as Google Drive and Dropbox won't work with the app. If any of the project's assets are saved on the Cloud, try downloading them to your phone and re-adding them to your project.
If you still can't identify the faulty assets, try removing every single one (such as pictures, videos, and audio files) in order. By repeating the process for each asset, you'll quickly learn which is causing the issue. Then you can exclude it from your project.
Try switching to a different internet connection. If you're using a WiFi network, try your mobile data connection, and vice versa. If you're using a VPN, turn it off and try again.
Check that your device has enough available storage to complete the export. You can do so in Settings > General > iPhone Storage. Make sure you're not simply freeing up space on iCloud storage, as Splice can't use that.
Try exporting your project with a lower resolution, a lower frame rate, or both.
