Welcome to the forum.
One thing that can stop Transcoding of a Timeline is if there is a gap in the Video somewhere.
Do you get any sort of % of completion? If so, PrE uses a 2-pass Encode with VBR (Variable Bit-Rate), so 100% is the culmination of both passes. A 50% completion would be the end of the first pass. With that knowledge, if the completion is, say 75%, then it is at about the half-way point of the Timeline, and on the second pass. After one calculates the 2-passes, that spot would be where I would investigate. Look first, to see what the assets are there. Any overly-large stills? A different form of Video? Anything different? If not, then zoom in to the Frame-view on the Timeline, and look closely for any gaps in the Video. Ignore gaps in Audio, as they will not matter. Video is another story.
PS - with a long Transcode, people often go off and do something else. In those cases, they will not catch the % of the Transcode. Rather than sit by, watching a slow-moving progress bar, I'd just set up my video camera to record the screen. When the Transcode fails, just playback the video from the camera, and see exactly WHERE it stopped. Then, do the math, and study that Timeline closely.
Thanks for this valuable information, when its burning a bar comes up amd
its just say burning in progress, doesnt move the time line bar or anything,
so its very hard to asume where it stopes, i am just taking off some of
those effect title bars from middle of the film, cause before it used show
error on 1 hour 34 min remaning, since i took some effects off now its still
stop saying transcoding error but now its says 1 hour 10min remaining, dont
know i am doing the right thing, all those work i have done for weeks had to
take some of those effects off not very pleased, its just no knowing which
effects or photo causing it, i have checked the gap ther is no gap, thanks
any other tip would be appriciated.
Unlike older versions of Pinnacle Studio,and some others, the CTI (Current Time Indicator w/ the red Edit Line) does not move.

In the FAQ article Steve linked to there is advice to resize stills so that they are not more than 1000x750 pixels. What size are your still images? If greater than 1000x750 you should resize them and then try the burn again. Use Burn to Folder to avoid wasting disks.
More info on the dimensions of still photographs can be found at: What resolution should my photos be in Premiere Elements?
