Have been trying to export an .avi file of a 30 minute video to an external hard drive but it always stops and tells me about 70% of the way through that the disk is full. However, this is a brand new external drive! It has 40 GB's free and the avi only comes to 6!
I've gone through my computer and clicked 'disk cleanup' which directs me to uninstall or remove programs to clear memory, yet this seems to have no effect on the export process. The same thing happens if I save the file to my computer then copy it into the drive from there.
I know in After Effects there is a way to purge RAM as it renders so that the memory being used and the render don't overlap so to speak - whether I need to do something similar here I don't know.....
Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks guys!
