Maximum WAV file size?

I have PPro 1.5.1. Usually I'll edit my sound track in Audition and generate a 6-track 16-bit WAV file, and overlay that on my final sequences in PPro. Those audio files can get quite large. When PPro conforms the audio, if the file is over about an hour in length (> 2GB file size), the last few minutes of the file are not conformed and therefore not available to PPro. The sound files themselves are fine (e.g., in VLC, or WMP)--it's just the PPro conforming that's messed up. When I open the file in the Monitor window, the wave forms are all flat in the last part, and there is no sound. As I said, the files themselves are fine--it just seems like the PPro conforming is chopping off the last part.

Is there a maximum sound file length of sound file size published anywhere? This is quite annoying, as I have to go and cut the sound track into chunks for Premiere to properly conform the audio.

Thanks,
Matt

Dang. I was hoping it was a bug I could workaround. Chop, chop on the audio, I reckon.

Is this any different for CS3?

Thanks,
Matt

Maybe a stupid question but is there any reason for the 2gb limit? is a general system resource issue?

Thanks

Liam
