    PE4 aborts while compiling a video

    Wumpus32 Level 1

      Building a DVD for my grandson's birthday, consisting of public-domain cartoons from the 30s and 40s.  Converted them all to AVI (DivX) and assembled the entire video -- 13 cartoons, titles with appropriate sound clips, still photos, menu and scene markers for each cartoon's title slide.  Plays through from beginning to end without error.  But attempting to burn to a DVD results in PE4 terminating, with no error message -- just as it begins to render the project (maybe 30 seconds after starting to render), there's my desktop, with no shreds of PE4 remaining (per Task Manager).  Reboot, restart, registry cleanup have no effect.


      Setup is XP SP3, AMD dual-core 2.2 GHz processor, 4G memory (75% of the 3G Windows sees is free at time of attempted DVD burn), scads of SATA3 disks.


      Thoughts?  Should I reconvert the videos to a different AVI flavor using VirtualDubMod or MPEG StreamClip?
