We'd all be interested in your solution though. Duane E. Delete your FCP preferences and see if this helps (I assume you work with FCP, not FCE ?). Thank you.ReplyLarryJ says:August 18, 2014 at 8:21 amBela:Let's do this in separate steps.First, if your sequence is set to ProRes 422 HQ, you need to render in 10-bit video - otherwise

You should be sorted. So asking if anyone else has received that error might be useless since it is a General Error one has to assume that it is a catchall for a number of Martin Earth to Sky Pictures Inc. Make SURE!!!
