I exported a QuickTime clip from my Avid Media Composer software in order to add a preset to it. On my initial try everything worked fine, except the resolution looked really funky when I edited the effect back into my sequence. So I decided I would try again.

I have tried every combination of media property setting during my numerous attempts at rendering; I deleted internet temp files because an error message referred to a TEMP LOCAL file error,but whatever I do, a dialog windows box during render shows up and freezes while compression is occurring. After that VisionLab crashes.

I cannot update to the latest version of QuickTime. My DVD burner must have QuickTime 7.3 in order to operate. Why would it render in one instant and then fail to do so in the next?

I actually got it to render by selecting AVI for the file setting. Thanks. It is kind of strange though to have a QuickTime clip imported into the program but then not being able to export it in the same format.

Glad to hear you got it working. If you still can't render to Quicktime though, that would indicate that something isn't quite right. I'd suspect its related to the outdated Quicktime install, though if so, I'd think that only certain codecs would be affected. Does it make a difference which Quicktime codec you select? Try the Animation codec and see if you have the same issue.
