    Why is Premiere getting an error when trying to export .MXF files?

    touchtheclouds Level 1



      I have a video that I need to submit to DMDS and it must be a .mxf file. This is the first time I've ever had to export a .mxf so I am not too familiar with the type. I have been exporting every other type of file for years and never had an issue (H.264, quicktime, etc.). However, when I try exporting .mxf I get the generic rendering error which then stops the export.


      The first time I tried, the video was down to 12 minutes left (after about 2 and a half hours) when I got the error.


      The next time, it crashed right away with over 2 hours still remaining.


      So it does not seem to be a corrupt clip because: A) I've been rendering this video out as other file types for rough previews, drafts, etc and it's worked fine and B) The 2 crash times were on opposite ends of the spectrum.


      I am running an iMac with OSX 10.7.5, 3.06 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo with 8GB ram...I am using Premiere Pro Version 6.0.0


      I do have Third Party plug ins installed but have never had an issue exporting in the past, only with this .mxf file.


      Thanks in advance for any and all help!
