Compressor crashes

hi there!
I have a lot of problem in working with fcp 7.
When I have some "long" movies (longer than 30 min) very often i return comrpessor crashes!

I am working using HDV 1080i50 codec and the export settings are for bluray h.264. The last error message is Quick time error:0.

I would like to find the way by analyzing batch monito log to fint the exact part of timeline who generates th ecrash.
From batch monitor I have to tabs
Tab 1 - status
Name: Eleonora_Mirko.264
Time Elapsed: 2:03:28
Time Remaining: 0:00:00
Percent Complete: 100
Status: Failed - QuickTime Error: 0

Tab 2 - Log
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>

Any suggestion?

You are obviously trying to export to h.264 directly from the timeline. Instead, export to a self contained file using Export>>Quicktime Movie, then use that file as your master to create any other files you need via Compressor. It's faster, you don't lose a generation, and you won't continue to have silly problems like you're having now that keep you from doing other more important things.
