So I normally work in CS5.5, but for my new video I decided to give CC 2014 a try. I was rather liking it, and the whole editing process went pretty smoothly (save for a few crashes and audio conforming erros). However, after all my hours of work when I went to export my video, it progresses normally up until about 8%, where it freezes and then begins to lag out my whole computer to the point where I can barely move the mouse. If I leave it like this, I begin to get messages from Windows saying it needs to close Premiere because I don't have enough RAM (which is ridiculous, since I have 16 gigs and never experienced this issue in CS5.5).
I've tried tinkering with the export settings and moving it to Media Encoder, but the same thing always happens. I actually downloaded CC 2015 to see if I could move the project there and try exporting, but the same thing happens.
I really do not want to lose all my work, so any help would be appreciated.
