It is very common for OS updates to render display drivers obsolete, and most people do not even know that these are installed. If you have tried the most recent driver (replaceing an older one), and not helped, it might be something else.
The aspect of the video Exporting poorly, leads me to believe that your system might be underpowered, especially in the I/O sub-system. A slow, fragmented, or full HDD can do the same. That would NOT address the warning message, though. That almost has to be a vid-card, or driver issue.
Also, if your Assets have to be decoded by PrPro, that will tax the system. If you Export as DV-AVI, then the CPU does not need to work overtime on the conversion.
Please give a complete description of the Assest, especially their CODEC's. Please give a system breakdown, paying special attention to the I/O sub-system (HDD's specs. and all configuration details).
the_wine_snob, we actually tried installing the latest driver from ATI - which came out a few months ago - and we are still having the issues. I'll double-check the disk space, but like you said why are we still getting errors? The system is old, a P4 3GHz with 1GB RAM. I can't convince them to spend the money on a new system. i'm just not sure "what changed". it was working fine, then it hasn't been working. Do you suppose it could be one of the latest updates from Microsoft. Didn't they have a patch that made XP more Win7 ready or something?
My best guess here is a disk problem. Use HD Tach to get a peek at your RAID's performance and report back.
Jim, thanks. I'll try to run HD Tach and see what the results. That being said though, why would Adobe report an error on the video card? Should I try a different video card or do you think it's software related for sure?
When searching through the forums and Google it seems like this is a common issue, but no one really has or knows the fix for it. One person even said after he uninstalled his wireless mouse driver it fixed the issue. :-/
Drive space available ...
C: (RAID) is 90% full
G: is only around 30%
We've tried export video to both drives and get the same results. I will try a different video card, but any other ideas what it could be at all?
Drive space is only partially telling. The data needed are the read transfer rates of the disk the media is on (not the disk it's going to). Try HD Tach. At the very least, this will allow the elimination of one possible source for your jerky video.
