The project has not made it through this opening process without appearing to completely create all thumbnails to only crash.
Can you clarify that statement?
People would need information on your system to help you. CPU, Memory, Hard Drive Configuration, and then more info on your project.
When did the project stop working? Can you open an earlier version?
When the project has finished loading, all of the clips in a sequence have no picture/thumbnail on them, and in the editing window say 'Media Pending'. The program takes a very long time to generate any image. Usually it appears to have done this, but when I would click on the project to use it, the program would crash.
Thanks. We're getting closer. Next...
when I would click on the project to use it
What specifically does that mean? Where exactly are you clicking?
