Most often Adobe Encoder CS4 with update 4.2 would crash/hang up while it is in process of creating Mpeg2 file(It could be any file).
I have Dell IntelCore2 3.0GH 1333FSB with Quad core and RAM 4GB. I usually use between 4 to 6 video layers for my project Premiere CS4.
It is frustrating when you have limited time to produce and upload file. Any word on this issue?
