    After AMA re-link, export crashes computer.

    Hi All

     

    At work we have an HP XW8400 as our Avid machine.  I've just relinked a project via AMA to it's original media (1920x1080 25p H264 5D MkII material) but when attempting to do the export out to a H264 with Vimeo recommended compression (1280x720, 5000kbps etc) it crashes.

     

    The computer has 4GB RAM, which I know isn't a huge amount for what we're using it for, and it's Quad Core.  Is it freezing because exporting from AMA is a lot more intensive that from DNxHD material?  The film is 20mins in length by the way.

     

    It would be good to know whether this is a speed issue or if there's something else at play, so in future we can plan to do the final AMA export elsewhere.

     

    Thanks a lot.

    Did you try mixing down the video first, then exporting?

    Hi 

     

    I'm not entirely sure what you mean, can you be more specific?

     

    Thanks a lot
