PP crashing and giving NVIDIA OpenGL Error Code:6 when in FCP XML sequence

Jan 3, 2012 9:28 PM

Hi guys/gals,



In an attempt to do an online and colour grade of a music video I shot with the EPIC recently, I loaded up a FCP XML (created with FCP version 7) file into a new 2k, 2:1, 23.98 sequence from the presets and re-linked the offline EPIC .r3D's to color in PP and AE CS5.5.

Mix of sizes, 2k, 3k and 5k as well as some 5D shots. My playback settings are Paused: Full and Play: 1/8th



As I go through and clean up the sequence for finishing Premiere Pro keeps crashing and giving me an error:



NVIDIA OpenGL Driver Error Code: 6

"Your hardware configuration does not meet minimum specs"


When I build a new sequence from scratch with all the same footage, PP chugs along and moves slowly as I make changes and scrub through the footage but it doesn't crash.


Is this a known issue with FCP XML's and PP and is there a fix?


As far as I know my system is spot on and up to date on all drivers, could it be a faulty GPU??





I am running CS5.5, with EPIC plug ins installed.

Asus Sabretooth

Intel i7 3600

16GB Corsair RAM

Nvidia GTX580

120GB SSD C:

2TB Raid0



Thanks for any advice in advance.

    You would need Max GPU memory to play back that high resolution material consistent flawless.

    How much on dedicated Memory does the Nvidia GTX580 have?


    Later, I searched at new eggthey had GTX580s with choice of  either

    1536MB or  3GB.


    You may need the 3gb model to get MPE Hardware acceleration correctly with 3k and 5k material.
