I have never experienced this before. I am working on a project that needs to combine footage captured from 2 different cameras. Bit rate of footage from one camera is 64kbps and another is 1536 kbps. There are many short video clips from each camera that needs to be merged and burned on a DVD. I am unable to do simple cuts, render clips for preview or export it. Premiere just crashes randomnly, even on simple actions like a simple cut or a video transition. Could this be due to combining clips of different bit rates? And I am working on a 3 hour long HD video footage and face absolutely no problem with that. What could be going on? Thanks. Rene
