Mac freezing
on Feb 2, 2013 at 3:49:41 pm

I just reinstalled CS5 after reformatting my computer.

I tried to edit something but every time I try to export via Media encoder the computer fails to export freezes - forcing me to turn it off manually.

Does anyone have any idea what to do?

Thank you

I meant to say it both fails to export and freezes...

How about some details?

What format/codec are you trying to export to?

What kind of media on the timeline?

How long is the timeline?

Thank you for your response:

1. It's a 15 seconds clip made from just an .mts file (from my af100- 1080 24p) with some colour grading.
2. I tried to export to h.264 (hdtv 1080 24p), mpeg-2 (hdtv 1080 24p), quicktime (standart-def ntsc widescreen24p)

What kind of error screen do you get?

unfortunately, no error screen.

The computer just freezes with no response to mouse clicks...

Thank you both. Trashing and repairing seem to have fix it.

Have you been able to export media from this camera out of CS5 in the past?

I recently had the same problem but using CS6. I used Preference Manager to trash the preferences. It's available for free from Digital Rebellion. It seemed to do the trick.

Trashing Preferences and Repairing Permissions are both good maintenance processes that can fix a lot of weirdnesses on Macs.

The problem returned. I uninstalled the CS5 suite. Haven't reinstalled it yet. I have to say I'm pretty scared to do it. I don't want to keep forcing shutdown on my mac.

Tom - I'm having the freezing issue as well on my work Mac Pro. I've tried trashing the preferences to no avail. How do you Repair the Permissions. I'm pretty dumb when trying to figure out a Mac problem so lead me by the COW nose, please. Thanks JOHN
