    CS4 Corrupts the m4v file during export


      I am currently using the trial version of Adobe Premiere.  I am trying to figure out if this is the editing software to use.  I recently bought the Canon 7d DSLR camera and with the most recent patches I can edit and view video files within Premiere with ease on my high horsepower computer.  However, when exporting files to the H.264 Blu-ray format, the final file cannot be read by any software.  If I import the file back into Premiere I get the following message "The importer reported a generic error."  The file does seem to have some meat in it (~628 MB for a 4 minute portion of the timeline).  I did try to export to wmv and after 10 hours it exported the entire file, BUT when I open it in media player, only about half of the movie plays, then it becomes corrupted.  Any thoughts?  This is the third editor I have tried and this one is the most promising.  Vegas Pro ran out of memory after a 2 minute compilation.  Pinnacle Studio doesn't recognize the .mov file.


      Here are the specs.
