    "Gathering AAF dependencies" hangs on, prevous advises doesn't help

    Hi guys,


    I did 3 45 minutes long TV show recently and I should turnover the AAF to sound department, and I've got this error.
    The situation is the next: I've got 24 audio channels on my timeline, I want to export AAF for sound only, with the following settings:


    The export starts fine, all media copied to the AAF folder, but the 'gathering AAF dependencies' never stops, the exported AAF stay 0kb. I did some research on the previous post, I did 'commit multicam edits', I did the link only option, I did remove match frame edits, I deleted MCState, no luck:(

    The wierd thing that 6 months ago in the same show I did the same without any issue. The only thing what changed in the workflow is the Media Composer, now I have this version:



    p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; }

    Thank you if you could help me.

    Divide and conqour. Try only the first then last half of the timeline as an AAF.

    Then try the first 12 tracks then the second 12 tracks.

    I suspect you will find you have one or more duff clips and thats the issue. You just need to narrow down whicg one(s) it is.
