Same exact thing happening to me. CS4, encoding to VBR 2-pass F4V (H.264) with AAC audio. PProHeadless.exe seems to still be pulling from the CPU and using RAM, but Adobe Media Encoder.exe process showing RAM usage but 0% CPU. It doesn't say "not responding" however. Estimated Remaining timer has not moved in an hour. How do I know if it's frozen?
what should i try?
A different project with different media. Does it still hang, or only on this project?
Actually, this may help. Since it didn't say "Not responding", I just went to a different computer and left it alone. Eventually, it started back up again and finished, although it did end up taking about 6 hours to encode - which is a lot for a dual, dual core computer hyperthreaded to 8 cores! I suppose it just needed more time that it estimated (by about 300%).
I did a quick small project and it did not hang.
Ever since I overlayed the audio track with my MP3 audio it has been causing issues.
The estimateed remaining time starts at 38:00 then quickly goes down to 13:06 or so, and then it hangs. In the task manager, the processes are still running and under performance PF Usage is 3.38 GB (probably all of the RAM), and CPU at 0%.
I'm gonna let it run for a few hours to see if it moves at all. then if that doesn't work remove the audio and see if that works.
Update:1 hour no movement.

Any other suggestions?
Try converting the .mp3 to a .wav and using that instead.
will do, another question.
the audio file is 24 seconds long and the video is 2 mintues. how do i cover the entire 2 mintue video with the same audio clip? so far i have just dropped the auido in and then tacked on the same file to the end of each audio clip over and over again (one right after the other).
I also support the conversion of the MP3 to PCM/WAV 48KHz 16-bit, and Importing that.
As for "covering" you longer Video, well that will depend.
Can you just drag multiple Instances of the Audio, until you have a match for the Video? It might be easier to do this cleanly and smoothly in the audio-editing program used to convert.
As that is a big "stretch" (no pun intended), I doubt that the pitch of that Audio can be maintained with something like the TimeStretch Tool.
I'm trying the method of dragging multiple instances.
FYI - I did covert first to .wav with Adobe soundboth. I still had issues with encoder freezing so i thought mp3 are smaller, and then covert the .wav to mp3. still having the encoding issues.
i'm gonna try removing all the audio and see if that works. i mean this is a 2 min clip, aghhhh.
OK, what are the specs of the video files you are using?
Did these clips come from a camera? If so, which make and model?
I don't know. I got the clips on a CD.
That causes a little concern. Can you find out?
Here is the information.
This particular video that is giving me the issues was recorded on the following camera.
Gspot screen capture here:
Editing: AVC-Intra 100 720p 60Hz
Preview DVCpro100 720p 60Hz
Note: Editing was going good until I added my own audio track. It would then suck up all ram memory.
Also, I will be using these following 2 cameras. Can you TEACH me how to know what sequence presets I should use?
