    "Blue dot" effect won't render in old SD project

    I'm using MC 7.0, and pulled up a 10-year-old Standard-Def project that needed some updating (I think it was created with the ancestor of Media Composer, the Avid DV Express).  I've been trying to apply a transition effect that I created in Avid FX, and it won't render to give me a seamless playback.  When I hit the render button, it will go through the motions of rendering, the moving status bar and all that, but when it's done, the blue dot on the render icon remains, and when I play it back, the transition doesn't show.  (It shows when I scrub through the timeline.)  I have discovered that I CAN create a video mixdown, and that works, but that's a rather tedious workaround.  I don't recall ever having this problem working on HD projects.    I would think that working in SD would be much less of a burden on the processors than in HD, so it seems counter-intuitive that I'd have this problem. Is there something I'm missing?  Thanks in advance.

    i've seen this problem on any kind of project once in a while.


    you only have one spot like that on the timeline?

    delete this bit in the timeline and build again from source window.
