    Quicktime export just keeps starting over

    When I try to export a file (locally - Quicktime, fast or best including DNXHD) the file looks like it is going along, but it reaches the end and then continues to start over and over. The file itself never goes past 1kb. 

    Has anyone experienecd this and what was done to resolve it?

    Is there any particular reason you're exporting a Quicktime file?

    In the past few years I have switched to exporting as MXF Op1a (via Avid Media Processor) and have been really happy with it. If I need to deliver a different format, I encode the MXF with a 3rd party encoder to whichever format is requested.

    Hi Kenton,

    I do not think we are talking about the same thing. I am using Media Composer First and the only options I have are to Publish (not Export) to Youtube, Vimeo, Facebook or Local Drive. The only Format is Quicktime either H.264 or DNXhd.

    Hello Kenton,

       Can you share your Computer OS and machine specs? Are you exporting to H.264? I find the H.264 export with multipass DNxHD is faster.

    Sorry, I didn't realize this was an MC | First issue. I found it by way of the "Unanswered Topics" and didn't look at the specific forum category.

    Re: Quicktime export just keeps starting over

    DNxHD is faster to export based on my test, the H.264 takes 4 passes before it complete, it's not starting as you mentioned. specs look good to me although the 1.9GHz  is a bit low.

    It's possible your machine is struggling with the 1.9GHZ, try a very short media see if that will work.

    Re: Quicktime export just keeps starting over

    Hi RalphC,

    Tried a short video clip and the same issue. It says Exporting but never actually exports a file. Initially the render was about 45 minutes and I shortened the clip down where the render takes about 5 minutes and it just keeps starting over and over........Output files remains at 1KB.
