The two things that stand out for me are Crashplan and Bulldog. I can't say with any certainty that these are causing your issues, but whenever I see someone having a problem and there is software installed that doesn't need to be installed on a production machine, I get suspect of that software.
Thanks for your input Jim.
I agree with your view on the 'production machine'.
There are two desktop PCs in my studio, one of which has to be used for email/office stuff, and on occasion a little bit of editing while the main machine is tied-up.
One issue I have just noticed, is that my GPU is getting very hot (91°C). I know the GPU isn't used for encoding but it can't be helping.
I've found an issue that I've never come across in over a decade of video editing.
Occasionally I help out fellow freelance editors with issues and one of the most common ones was JPEGs in CMYK mode.
The project I'm having trouble with contains JPEGs, so I checked that they're using RGB mode with Bridge, and I noticed
a few of the images didn't have any data in the Color Profile field.
So I opened them in Photoshop and assigned the sRGB IEC61966-2.1 profile to them and I no longer get 'Error compiling'.
