[Erik Lindahl] "I did one bigger project in CS6 that ended up with either a corrupt project file or a project file pointing at bad media or simply PrPro CS6 being FUBAR. Either or I never got that project to work after about a week of editing. I had to rebuild everything in FCP7 to meet the deadline and I had a very embarrassing afternoon with the client when Premier got the above idéa to "die" on me.

All the media works in FCP7 - given I transcoded everything "properly" and converted all the image-files "properly" hence "bad media" was removed from the equation. I haven't dared do any bigger projects in PrPro CS6 since.

Erik, I'd be very reluctant, as well. I totally get it. My last encounter with a major out-of-nowhere corrupt project was in FCP 6. It would begin to load and then just die. I hadn't had autosave on for some time and was truly messed up by it. Over the years, I've learned to save external versions early and often. When I'm in FCP, I try to make Media Managed versions of key timelines in large projects at pivotal moments on different drives because of the number of times I've been burned. The problem is I often get so wrapped up in what I'm doing that I sometimes don't follow my own advice.
