hey guys. i filmed a short sequence, where my friend flys out of a door and a explosion follows right after him. so i imported it into alamdv and then add all the FX, 3d debris, and 2 explosions. but when i try to export the film it just turns off, with no errors, it just turns off. so i tryed to reinstall it and the i put all the same effects in but it still does not work. my alamdv2 is registered so that is not the problem. if any body can help me that would be really great. and if somebody has had this problem aswell, and has fixed it, please explain to me.
PS: i have used alamdv2 many times and have never had this problem.
peace out

ssjaaron, have you tried booting into os 9 and running it? Or are you on a newer Mac that won't let you?

If it lets you import Final Cut files, could you just import the footage into Final cut and export it, then run it through AlamDV?

Here are a few things you might try, if you haven't already:
Make sure that you have updated your OS 9 version of Quicktime. Since it runs in Classic, having the latest version for OS X doesn't help. But if you have used it before without problems, this probably isn't a factor.

Make sure that the movie files are on your System directory. If you have them on a secondary hard drive, or an external hard drive, you can run into problems. Try moving them to the desktop.

Make sure the files end with the suffix .mov or .dv
