Is it not responding, showing an error message, is it a BSOD, is it rebooting the machine?
What is the hardware in use? What OS, which version, what source material, what export settings, etc.? Are there blank spots in your timeline?
Thanks for taking time to answer. What happens is I get a Windows error message stating 'Premiere has stopped working' and I can choose to end the program straight away or let Windows find a solution and then stop the program; a definitie frozen situation. So I guess it stops responding.
I have a Matrox MX02 LE graphic system, Windows 7 SP 1, version 5.0.3 of Premiere, HD source material (1440x1080) in the standard Matrox HD codec and I have tried exporting to a 1024 x 576 Quicktime with compression set to NONE for both audio and video. I also tried exporting to WMV 1024 x 576 in the highest variable unconstrained bitrate for A/V available.
There are no blank spots in the timeline.
As said, using the queue feature for export, leading to the full start of the Media Encoder appeared to be a workaround.
Then again, I tested exporting the same thing directly, so without queuing, from an SD project, which worked nicely.
I therefore suppose it must have something to do with the HD to SD conversion, but it beats me what it could be.

Often these kind of problems can be solved by updating to the latest Matrox drivers or even removing Matrox altogether. My personal opinion is that it is best to use Matrox stuff only in the way is was designed for, as a highly effective doorstop. Any other use may lead to severe headaches.
I am going to try a driver update. It might have something to do with the HD codec anyway. And luckily the workaround isn't that awkward or unusual.
Thanks for your help anyway!
