    MC 7 crashing during transcoding

    I am testing MC7 everything works except when I attempt to transcode a 20 mins sequence. It keeps crashing. Went back to 6.53 and transcoding worked perfectly. I get this error msg in MC7, then a crash.

    Hmmm... Your Mac Pro specs look fine, so it's not the machine... let's try some standard tech support... Are you transcoding to an external drive? if so, then try a different drive. My first guess is that the media indexing -combined with however the drive is formatted - is getting tripped up. So first, let's try transcoding to an internal media drive or even the main HD.

    I was having the same problem. Most clips were fine. Longer clips would crash. Switching on 'Render in background' in the transcode window seems to have helped.
