When I am rendering a project the OS crashes. It's not a blue screen. It actually just disappears. Then entire machine just shuts off.
The event viewer shows Event ID 41 (see event information below). This is event it s new to the log.
- Copy any MTS file from my camera to the desktop (Canon VIXIA HF R21)
- add it to the timeline
- Render the file (render to youtube or locally as an avi)
- The render never completes. It crashes. The machine just turns off. (I was trying to use PRE to create a DV-AVI to edit)
- It seems to fail at a specific step in the process. Just not sure there is a log someplace for the render.
If I play any MTS file in the time line it flows nicely for about 20-30 seconds. then the video gets jumpy.
I understand the minimum system requiremetns for HD editing is 4GB Ram. I see that I have 2GB.
Is this a problem that I could fix by throwing money at? (obviously that answer is usually yes, but I mean simply adding memory) I would hate to buy an additional 2-4 GB's of RAM only to find out that was not the problem.
It really feels like a step in the process is writing outside a buffer. The OS just shuts down at that point. It's not a reboot. It just shuts off. I have to manually restart the machine.
