I have an odd situation that someone might be able to trouble shoot. I have a project about 1 hour in length that combines JPEG pictures and avi video. When I go to render the video (NTSC-DV) it stalls every single time at 73%. The rendering process begins and proceeds normally, transitioning image to image, but when it gets to 73% the image in the "preview pane" remains and the transition to the next image stops, yet the "count down" of estimated time remaining continues. I get no error, no pop up, but I am unable to cancel and usually have to ctl-alt-del to end task.
Out of frustration and desperation, I rendered the video in sections (about 10 mins of video per) and the video rendered beautifully each segment. It is only when a) I try to render the entire project, or b) when I try to render greater than 10 minutes.
I've let the project go well past the countdown end, and nothing. It does create a the video, however, only up to the point that it stalls.
I'm running a 4600+ AMD Athlon 64 with 2084MB ram with Vista.
