Have you installed the recent updates?
What operating system? Tell us about your computer hardware. Do you have any third-party I/O hardware (AJA, Blackmagic, Matrox) installed?
Are you using Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration? Does the problem only happen with your final output, or does it happen when rendering previews, too?
Thanks Todd. Your questions were actually very helpful. I'm using a Macbook Pro with an Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M graphics card. I'm running OS 10.6.8 and have the latest updates installed.
When I disabled the GPU acceleration, I was able to render and export without a problem. The problem only occured when using the GPU acceleration and mixing h264 with still photos. It also affected both rendered previews and the final export. I'm assuming its a support issue with the graphics cards, but it would be great if you had any other ideas. I appreciate your help.
As I'm sure you're aware, the 330M is not a GPU for which the CUDA acceleration features are supported.
I'm afraid that that's most likely the problem---that you're trying to use an untested and unsupported configuration for the GPU acceleration features.
