Originally working with Quicktimes apple pro res 422 in timeline and everything was fine when rendering or exporting. Then i recently added in new footage, which were quicktimes convereted to AIC format from .MTS files. Now consistently getting "out of memory" message with fcp renders or when I try to export a cut.


I have good amount of free space on the drives, computer. The project files is 1 GB and change. One sequence. Started several new projects, still happening. About five photos. Nothing too wild. The only thing I can think of is that FCP doesn't like having those two different qt formats -- could this cause for out of memory message?


I'm converting all those .mts files to pro res Quicktimes, hoping that'll do it. Any other suggestions?
