I know normally when Error: Out of Memory comes up its related to stills, have any of you seen this message while working with video ?

In my experience the 'Out of Memory' error has nothing to do with memory.
I get it often when trying to playback H.264 files downloaded from YouTube.

When the codec of the video is something other than the sequence setting...Like ANIMATION or PHOTO-JPEG...I'll get that.

"Error Out of Memory", shows in FC since years. Long before the existence of H264.
Yes, I'm having lately this error when trying to read new codecs (ACCHD,Clips Re-wrapped with ClipWrap, etc) on FC, but I saw that, since the DV times, in many different situations: Corrupted Projects (that were fixed by "Save As.."), corrupted Preferences, shortness of GPU when applying Fxplugs on 1080 stuff at 10b.

Thanks guys I appreciate the info.

I was fortunate that it went away.

I don't know what I did to change it really.

I was looking around the project for stills originally because I was handed this project with some
edits already done.

I've had this happen before with still that were over 4k but I had never seen that error
message with strictly video.

All I did was reboot and then FC let me render the sequence, no problem since, weird!

One of the big memory uses in FCP are codecs that use long GOP. As each frame has to be save in memory between GOPS it is an ever increasing problem. FCP never considered this when the memory allocation was originally constructed and needs an 'awesome' rewrite.
HDV and XDCAM are examples of this 'long GOP' situation. In fact, if you populate the timeline with a whole bunch of this media edited together and rapidly scrub over it will bypass an 'out of memory' error and just crash as it is "desperately trying to 'cache' the frames to calculate the image".
