Been working on this for days now and it's driving me nuts. I'm trying to export a 22-minute long sequence. These are my export settings:

FCP 7

File -> Export -> Quicktime Conversion

Format: MPEG-4

Options:

File Format: MP4

Video:

Video Format: H264
Data Rate: 25,000 (approximately - it might be a little more or less to get it to 2GB)
Image Size: 1280X720
Frame Rate: 29.97
Key Frame: Every
Frames: 3

Video Options:

Restrict Profiles to: Main
Encoding Mode: Faster (unless you want to spend a couple of days rendering)

Audio:

Format: AAC-LC
Data Rate: 320
Channels: Stereo
Output Rate: 48.000 kHz
Encoding Quality: Best


I keep getting a General Error message. I've tried everything. Settings are kosher, I've rendered every single clip, full timeline renders perfectly well, I export just small segments and that works, don't know what to do.

Suggestions?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6)
