Several others have posted this problem. The only fix I know if is to check each edit point.
The solution, as often stated on this forum, is to start a project, and finish a project, all in the same software. And that means even specific releases sometimes.
Ok, here's the problem. I am having serious export issues with my 3.1 projects that contain HDV. When I move to 3.2 the export problems go away, but I also loose all the work (edits are hosed)... so I'm between a rock and a hard place.
Does anyone know of a work around for the export issues in 3.1? My larger projects simply jam or hang. I have tried exporting in 30sec chunks but even this sometimes fails. There are a lot of variables and I know I haven't given enough info for anyone to solve this problem... but if someone out there thinks they could help, please contact me here. We'd be delighted to give you a credit in the picture ;-)
Not sure if I can help, but if you post more details someone may be able to.
What's your computer system specs? What are trying to export to? Also, is your footage 24P or 29.97?
We shot the video on Canon XHA1s as 1080 30F and captured it into PPro 3.1.1 projects built on the HDV 1080p30 preset. We shot in HD only for the added framing and FX flexibility, the final output will be SD.
Once the clips were captured and partially edited we created new PPro 3.1.1 projects based on the NTSC-DV Widescreen 48kHz presets. Final editing is done in these SD projects and then we export Microsoft AVI DV files.
Unfortunately some of our largest projects have begun to exhibit instability during export either crashing Ppro (w or w/o error message), re-starting the computer or hanging. The 3.2 patch gives us smooth export, but ruins the projects otherwise.
We have 3 PC/Vista editing platforms, all running 7200 rpm SATA drives, Intel duel or quad processors and 2 or 3 GB of ram.
Please let me know if any other specific info would be helpful.
The A1 stores 30f as interlaced on the tape, so you need to set up the projectsettings as interlaced. (1080 60i)
To Ann - I was under the impression that while Canon doesn't capture true progresive, the frame modes (24F and 30F) are progressive, so you'd want to edit under a progressive setting.
To Chad - What happens if you export the clips from the original HDV project instead of the SD project? Also, why not do all your editing in an HDV project, then downconvert after your done? As for 3.2 ruining your project, I don't think it's "ruining" so much as it's correcting it. But I know what you're going through - it's happened to me with some projects, but just not on such a big scale.
