I have a 90min Avid sequence which is all DNxHD 175x media which I'm exporting as a QT ref before bringing into Compressor with the hopes of making an MPEG-2 M2V file.
Earlier today I tried a test compression using a QT ref of just 4-5 mins of my sequence. It worked flawlessly. Then I made a ref of my entire 90min sequence and tried to import that into Compressor. Compressor crashed with the following error message:
"Compressor quit unexpectedly while using the AvidAVinCodec plugin."
I tried the original short 4-5min test ref file, and now Compressor crashes on that too - strange...
Here's what I've tried:
- Reinstalling the Avid codecs
- Reinstalling Avid
- Various Compressor fixes within the Pro Maintenance Tools app - using the free trial version.
I've scoured the web looking for help with this on forums, but only come up with a few instances of the same issue, but so far no one seems to have a fix for it - there must be one by now, right?
I'm using OS X 10.8.5
Thanks in advance for any help any of you can offer.
I tried to bring that QT ref into FCP7 with the hope of exporting FCP's version of a QT ref and then bring THAT into Compressor. FCP crashed with the same error message as Compressor: "Compressor quit unexpectedly while using the AvidAVinCodec plugin."
So it must be the Quicktime codec, but how do I fix it? I've already reinstalled the Quicktime codecs, as well as Avid.
I've used these workflows many times in the past. Why am I getting crashes now all of a sudden - after not making any changes that I'm aware of.
