I seem to be having some problems while rendering. If I render to an .MOV file the footage is rendered with a "compacted" width (and shows up with a blue tint in some players). And when I try rendering to an .AVI file (my preference) the program locks up and shuts down. I tried the .AVI without sound and my end result is a blank grey screen. Am I going to have to do a re-install or are there fixes for these issues?

These both sound like odd issues. What codecs are you using?

I have tried "cinepak codex by radius", "DV video encoder" and uncompressed. All with the same results. Could it be because I filmed in HD? Should I be using a VP8 or is that possible?

If you're shooting in HD you shouldn't be using a DV video encoder, and the Cinepak codec is very old and worth avoiding. Uncompressed should be fine, however.

Did you get the 'blue tint' even when using uncompressed?

Could you describe in more details what you mean by 'compacted width'? What project settings were you using?

By "compressed width" I meant that the rendering seems to be changing the aspect ratio reducing the height and width in unequal amounts causing the image to appear "squished" horizontaly and "streched" verticaly. I can't seem to find a controll that effects the the resolution of the rendering end product. I tried going into the media tab and changing "square" to HD 1080 (or something along those lines)having no clue if this had anything to do with the problem, but this had no effect on the cursed outcome. I am at wits end... tard

What project settings did you choose when setting up your project?
