Default Re: 2021.3 Video engine and bounce to .mov crashes.

It seems that the audio elements themselves (plugins, MIDI, audio files) aren't the issue, it's PT having to manipulate the video after the bounce that's the prime culprit, yes?

So if you bounce to QT without shortening the movie it's all gravy, but ask PT to change the length of that movie and the floor drops out.

Perhaps not so simple, but coming into this thread just 5 minutes ago that's how it reads.

Oh, I see. So you're saying if you bounce the entire movie then it just replaces the audio without recompressing the video. But if you bounce a clip--like we all have to do all the time--it recompresses and takes forever.

PT includes various video parameters when bouncing MOVs, so you certainly could force alteration(s) to the video, but what I've noticed, and supported by what I'm reading here, is that PT seems less likely to crash if you keep the video as close to its original format as possible, and that includes length.

I did some bouncing to MOV yesterday, kept bounce length to the exact duration of the video, and it was smooth sailing. Ironically, it began crashing after I switched back to bouncing WAVs.

Interesting test..

BTW, I wanted to let the thread viewers of this posting, that I have been working with Avid closely on filing crash reports and testing various versions of what I have been experiencing prior to my consistent bounce successes along with the previous sessions that had more going on like various virtual instruments, plugins, etc. I ran Pro Res 422 movies in the same session, but with different parameters. So, I got finished with a bunch of info to the bug team via some of the Avid Team leads.

hopefully now, they will be getting this solved for us-:)
