This is new for me in Pr, although not new on computers in general. I'm looking for hints on:
1) How do I best diagnose and/or report bugs like this?
2) Why would Pr think a project file is corrupt... when it is not?
I have a significant video conversion project under way. The current file is a 90 minute (VHS to digital) file. Everything has been going well. But after adding a couple of effects (B&W, Shadow & Highlight), now about 50 minutes into a multi-hour export, Pr crashes hard.
I have the crash log from Windows.
This time around I could not re-open my project file ("corrupted") until I rebooted my computer. Then all was well again.
SO.... I'm left with the above questions.
The crash point is nothing special in the project. Right in the middle of a section of video. No glitches. I'm doing a re-render of just the area around the crash and it looks like nothing special will happen.
Further hint: it would appear that the crash is not related to file position but rather approximately how much rendering has taken place.
Starting at frame 0, it went around 16k frames before crashing.
Starting at frame 13k, it went around 16k frames before crashing (16646, not 16384 for binary geeks )
I am not out of any resource that I know of (memory, disk, etc)
