This seems to have just started happening and I do not know what changed to make it this way.

When I export my edited project to Quicktime, using the same settings, my resultant video like a bunch of tiny, random, blocks.

Any ideas what is causing it?

2 GHz Intel Core Duo iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.4), 2gb RAM

    Please give the exact item properties of the clips you're editing and the exact item properties of the sequence in which you're editing.

    Are you exporting to QuickTime Movie?

    HDV 1080i60

    Yes, I am exporting to Quicktime, but not Quicktime Compression, just straight Quicktime. The movie looks fine in the editor. I tried a previous movie and that exported just fine as well.

    Maybe this footage is somehow corrupted?

    I just used Export to Quicktime Compression and I exported it to an iPod video and it looks just fine. This is very strange.

    Please check the item properties of the clips and of the sequence.

    I did, but I can't copy it all and paste it. Besides what I gave above, what else is needed?
  • Tom Wolsky Level 10 (115,525 points)
    OK. Is the sequence fully rendered before you export?
  • Schneb Level 5 (4,940 points)
    Yes, in fact there was no rendering needed. I imported two clips from my HD Video cam, cut a couple of scenes together, and that's it. The video plays fine within the preview window.

    I just exported them using Quicktime Compression using the HDV 1080i60 settings and it worked just fine... go figure? I hope this does not continue. I use the Export to Quicktime quite a bit.

    In the Render All menu make sure Full is checked on. If your media is HDV it must be rendered for output because the MPEG-2 GOP structure has to be reconformed. With Render All set to Full the sequence will be conformed prior to output.

    Usually when either video is unrendered, it will not playback and I will have those red lines. Neither is the case, but I tried it just the same. Everything is definitely rendered.
  • Tom Wolsky Level 10 (115,525 points)
    I can't help you. Sorry. HDV has to be conformed, and if it isn't when you do the procedure I described, then there's a problem with the media or the sequence or both.

    The red line in the render bar is only one red indicator. Look in the sequence menu to see the others.

    OK. Yeah, I think the imported footage is bad for some reason. Luckily, I was able to export it via Quicktime Compression. Thanks for your help just the same!
