PPCS6 Render freezes at 100% and never finishes

Hi,

 

I'm trying to render a 42 mins long sequence in PPCS6 and the render process goes fine until it reaches 100%. It gets stuchk at this point and it never finishes the render. I tried twice but it always gets stuck at this point.

The export settings are:

 

Codec: H.264

Format: MP4

 

I already rendered previous projects with these output settings and similar length. I don't understand what's going on.

 

Can you help me?

 

Thanks.

    A render is something different than an export, which it seems is what you're talking about here.

     

    The final phase of such an export is the muxing.  Once the separate video and audio files are generated, they have to be combined, or muxed, into a single MP4 file.  How long have you waited for this process to finish?

    The muxing can take quite a while.  If you are on Window open the Windows Task Manger and then click on the Resource Monitor.

    There you will be able to see the disk I/O.  It will show you what files are being read and what files are being written to.

     

    You should be able to see your exported file being written to.

    Try the things mentioned in this post: http://premierepro.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ:Why_does_exporting_stop_before_c ompletion%3F

    Look especially for any gaps in your sequence.

    Well, if this was my problem, which I'm glad it isn't, here is what I would do.

     

    Duplicate the sequence and remove all the effects.

     

    Try to export the first clip.  If that works, try to export the first two clips.

    If that works, tries to export the first 4 clips.  Keep doubling up until you get to the end.

     

    If all that works, do the same thing with all your effects.  This should pinpoint your problem.

     

    If the first clip (without effects) doesn't work, try another clip or a clip of another format to try to isolate your problem.  If that doesn't work, you have a system problem.

     

    Basically, you have to eliminate possibe problems.

     

    Please let us know how you make out.

    Try going through Adobe Media Encoder instead of a Direct Export.

    Hit Queue instead of Export from the Settings dialog.

    I'm about $79,990 short for a used Ferrari I've had my eye on...
