I am fairly new to this and am working on my first project using Premiere 6.0 and a Matrox RT 2000.
Everything has worked Very smoothly up until this point. The story so far.....
First I edited my project in chunks, exported them as matrox clips and then imported them all into a new project in order to put them together.
I then tried to render some titles and my "until-now-ultra-stable-system" crashed to windows. So I tried again and again and it kept crashing. I freaked out for while and realised my Hardrive was almost full. I free'd up a bunch of space and tried again.
No dice. But this time instead of crashing when I try to render it just stops when its almost done and Say's "error writing file (disk full)?".
I have around 15 gigs free. Some of my files are stored on the same drive as my OS. Is that a bad idea? I noticed the drive is fragged to hell and defragg don't do much.
What am I doing wrong here? Any help would be most appreciated! Nothin worse than blazing through a workload only to run into a quagmire. Gah...
Thanks for your time
PS Is a 72000 rpm HD good enough for realtime editing? I have a 10000rpm, but the 72000 seems to do fine. Any thought on this one?
