Thanks for the reply John,
I have been through these steps with no luck. Been trying to figure this out for awhile before I posted, and have experienced the oversized gfx/photos scaling issue before as well.
The odd thing to me is that it exports via dynamic link to Encore and no problem transcoding from there. Actually although I haven't tried every option for render, I think most other render options work, just not Match Sequence Settings. At this point the only thing I can narrow it down to is using MPE and maybe something related to this codec causing some type of corruption in the sequence file.
Does this seem possible?
I had read that and several other tech notes on the subject. Still feel it is not hardware or memory related as in there is no problem rendering other codecs or uncompressed. I will go back throught the last couple of projects and start removing items, although this is very painstaking and time consuming, and I really need to move on. There were a couple of posts I saw at RedUser linking this problem to MPE. I'll have to keep digging.
I have gone through the problem sequence and have removed individual parts and titles and cannot achieve consistent results as in sometimes an area with a title causes problems and the next time it doesn't. It seems about half of the time I can get a render with the match sequence settings if I copy all of the cuts to a new sequence. This still doesn't make sense to me.
Does anything about the file structure change from the original AVCHD/.mts file when using the match sequence setting?
Dont use match sequence settings in the export, you end up with the wrong codec.
For every export give the file a unique name, do not overwrite an excisting file.
I am not sure I understand. If the sequence matches the file why would it change codecs if match sequence settings was selected.
If so what settings would you recommend for exporting a master copy of avchd 1920x1080p 23.976 to retain its original quality and size?
"For every export give the file a unique name, do not overwrite an excisting file." I have been following this rule for sure..

If you look at your sequence settings it read I frame only mpeg, that is not what you want for export.
So choose a preset or set everything manually.
This had never occured to me about it being I-frame only.
Created a new project and imported the existing project and no problems exporting the offending sequence, so I guess a corrupt project file. I will continue to try and figure this one out. What can cause a project file to become corrupt?
Thank you so much for your simple solution to this really irritating problem. Imported the offending project to a new project and it renders without a fuss. brilliant.
I am glad that this solution has worked for you. I have been able to get that to work on occassion with some situations, however after spending about three hours today trying to render a 3 and a half minute file with no success, I believe I have at least pinpointed the problem.
The problem for me lies in the Mercury Playback Engine. Disabling Mercury hardware acceleration and letting it dump the preview files and go to a redlined work area lets the file render and export in any available setting. Switch it back on and almost instantly the "Error Compiling Movie" error pops up...I have tried, new sequences,running as administrator,dumping the prefs file, importing project into a new project etc...still don't believe that any of these things have anything to do with it.
So until I can get a solution to this, it looks like no hardware acceleration from the video card for rendering purposes, and back to the days of slow renders...MPE still works great for preview and accelerated FX...it really is amazing. Seems like a bug related to AVCHD and MPE to me..
thanks for that, actually I got rather overexcited with my previous post - it rendered some of the footage, but not all of it and I've had more problems as I've changed things within the project.I'm sure you're right about it relating to avchd files - I'm using mxf files. Unlike you, I can export the file although now it's giving me a weird green screen over some of the footage. I will try disabling the Mercury engine and let you know. Many thanks.
So i figured it out ... I think my "Autosave" might have been the issue. I'm still checking in to it.
But i did find a sulution. I disabled Autosave first. then i proceeded to save the project under a new name and then i highlighted half of my 4min video
Deleted the second half and exported, hit undo after it exported and deleted the first half to export the second half on its own.
It worked just fine. Now i uploaded both exported "short" clips and united them in a entire new project and exported that as one movie clip.
Hope this helps everybody, i was on this for hours til i figured it out.. Tried it with 1080 and worked fine also. no loss in quality at all.
If u like to see the video i did this to, go to utube and search for "Forever me" Don Gee feat. Missy J . Enjoy !
Don, I was having the same problem. Here is what solved it for me, thanks to Ann Bens post. I was trying to export movie to a hard drive that mysteriously locked, which meant I didn't have read write permission. (This has been happening a lot lately, that's another issue I don't understand why happens). Although, when I "logged out" as user, then logged back in, somehow that same hard drive was no longer locked and I had read write permission again.
Then I was able to export movie with out the Compiling movie error message. Maybe try exporting to another hard drive.
Hope this helps.
When I had this problem I just created a new sequence, then copied the timeline from the sequence that wouldnt export, and pasted it into the new sequence. It did the trick.
