Thanks for responding. The settings are:
Saving to: Desktop
Export: Movie to Quicktime Movie
Compression ty: H.264
Frame rate: Current
Data rate: automatic
Size: Current 640x480
These would be the intial settings that iMovie uses. I never changed them from when I first purchased the computer and started using the program. This has me baffled.

I believe I did see multi-pass checked when I was looking at the Compressor Quality. I thought about changing it also because I get about a quarter of the way through the process and then it closes on me.
My sound settings are:
Format: Linear PCM
Channels: Stereo L R
Linear PCM settings:
Sample size 16
Little Endian is checked

When I got to church this morning I checked the settings we use there. Our media director told me that a couple of years ago they once had a problem with unexpected closes and he did as you suggested (changing the compression to single pass) and it worked for them. When I got home, I changed my settings and so far so good. I will work on next week's project for church later this week and hopefully I will have the same success I had today. Thanks again AppleMan1958.
