First off, I like this product, it has made green screening easier. I was able to chroma key in the background I wanted but when it comes time to render the program crashes once it reaches the 61st frame. It doesn't matter which codec I use or how I change the settings, once it gets to 61 it freezes and I don't know what's going on. Is it because of the audio? Is there something about the video I should be aware of? These files were originally mp4 files and I converted them to avi, so does that have something to do with it?

You mention the codec doesn't matter, but does it make a difference what container you render to? Does it crash when rendering both to Quicktime and to AVI? Is your Quicktime up to date? Is your DirectX up to date?

I tried rendering it to a different folder and my direct x is 11 which I think is the latest version. I can't render it as .mov because the original file is an AVI and I want to keep the audio.

Even if you can't use a Quicktime render for the final, output (though I strongly recommend handling your audio in a program other than CompositeLab), trying a Quicktime render will help narrow down the cause of the issue. If it renders in Quicktime, then we know the issue is related to DirectX. If it doesn't render in Quicktime either, then its likely something directly related to CompositeLab.
