Gaps can cause all sorts of failures.
One trick that I use to locate any is to first Zoom In on the Timeline. Hit Home to move to the beginning of the Timeline. Then, use the PageUp to step through the Clips. The CTI (Current Time Indicator) should jump smoothly from Clip to Clip. If you get a hiccup, or what looks like a stutter in the CTI, check very closely for a gap. Depending on your screen rez, and the Zoom-level, you might not be able to see the gap clearly, but the CTI will show you where it is.
Good luck, and hope that it's just a gap,
No, but there was a fraction of a second of pixalation in the video
toward the beginning of the timeline. When I cut this out, the media
encoder did not crash but completed the encode. Thanks for your help.
It sounds like there was a bit of corruption in the file. Glad that it was minor, that you found it and that you could delete it, to get all working for you.
Thanks for reporting and good luck,
