I have a half hour video composition in Adobe Premiere Cs3 with simple transitions, only 3 audio and 3 video channels and nothing fancy. If i try and render it through Adobe Media Encoder regardless of codec chosen it will always freeze part way through (usually at 9.83% but not always). It doesn't provide an error message, it just freezes, even the "Time taken" counter stops. I'v left it for 6 hours like this and no change, then if i try and do anything on it it just crashes. If however i render by simply clicking Export - Movie it will work but I end up with a 4.9GB file. I want to be able to export through the media encoder, what can i do to sort it?
I am running it on a Win 7 (64bit), quad core with 4GB Ram & 1GB graphics.
Please help, highly frustrating and can find no fix.
