I have several hours of video aerials shot with a JVC GY-HM750U camera. The camera creates a .MOV video file. Great looking stuff but I have some lens dirt showing up in everything. I upgraded from CS5 to CS6 because I saw a tutorial demonstrating how to use smart layers and the dust and scratches filter to get rid of the problem. Still working on the best settings for the filter to best take care of the problem. But when I exported a test clip in an H.264 or QuickTime format, both rendered files only played part way through then the image froze but the progress bar in the player kept moving. The image changed abruptly to somewhere down the clip and then ended. I also edit all other video in FCP6. When I import the .MOV file into FCP it behaves the same. Can anyone offer any help? Thanks.
Could it be you are overtaxing your resources?
Are you editing one shot that is hours long or is this split into segments?
In any case: Photoshop is not the ideal tool for serious video editing. Have you tried After Effects?
PS corrupts certain MOV files and encodes them wrongly. That's a known issue and regular concern on the video apps forums. Render image sequences. Mr. Pfaffenbichler has a point of course - only do in PS, what you can't do in AE or elsewhere, if you have access to these tools.

Good to know.
