Every time that I export a video, it freezes at frame 30. This only happens if I retain the sound. I have no idea why this happens. Please help!

My first suspicion would fal on some sort of issue with the codecs involved. Does it matter what codec you choose when you render? Does it matter whether you are rendering to .mov or .avi? Does it matter what project you are working in? If you create a new project, and add a few effects but no video, does the same thing happen? Is you Quicktime and DirectX (if on windows) up to date? What OS are you running?

My DirectX is up to date and I am exporting on the Cinepak Codec, which works fine without sound. The only difference from other projects is that I select "Retain sound if possible" in Render Settings. It begins to render normally and at frame 30, it stops and EffectsLab stops responding.

Well, first off, I'd say avoid Cinepak at all costs, and use a better codec. Though that's not related to the sound issue.

What codec is the source video in? And what format is its audio in?
