    I CANNOT export a movie in CS4, that was simple in CS3

    Stuart Lees
      Recently upgraded from CS3, and have run into an absolute brick wall - CS4 will not allow me to export a movie. It opens Media Encoder, and I run the queue, and after about 30 seconds it comes back with an error log saying "Error Compiling Movie: Unknown Error" That is NOT a useful error message.

      I have tried Quicktime with a number of different codecs, including "none", I have tried H264.

      All I want is an uncompressed mov file that I can continue working with outside of Premiere / Adobe.

      There are no blank portions in the video.

      Error log (including all the different attempts) follows:
