This is a problem I've been having. When exporting a project or program from my M100 lxi V8.2.2 (OS10.3.9) for further use with Compressor and DVD Studio Pro 4 in order to burn a DVD, the project or program will stall with a blank Error screen somewhere during the exporting process. This occurs when the program or project has multiple audio tracks, usually more than four; but even four tracks will make it stop exporting if there are numerous audio clips. The project length can be long or short when this happens, recently a twenty-minute piece with six tracks caused the trouble. My work-around is to master the project to tape and then re-digitize it as a clip into the M100, create a new project and export it as two video tracks and two audio tracks. That way it will export. It makes no difference if I export (to LaCie firewire drives or Seagate 15,000rpm RAID) by reference or not. This problem has persisted for over a year with pre OS10.3.9 operating systems. Does anyone have any trouble shooting suggestions? Thanks.
Shut down M100 and move your Audio media to some drive other than the drive that your Video is on. Re-launch the application, let it relink and try the export again.
For future projects, choose that other drive as your Audio drive.
I spoke to M100 about this some time ago and they said (I'm paraphrasing) that they know about it (and they know how to work around it when it happens) but they haven't been able to reproduce it in house. If they can't make it happen, they can't figure out whats causing it. If they can't figure out what's causing it...you get the idea.
