DNxHD75 & Squeeze

Lets say you're working on 3 vignettes that the client wants converted to many different forms of multimedia (be it format, Flash, Win Media, or data rate Med & large copression) Whenever I export a quicktime reference (or full QT) of material comprised of DNxHD75 to Sorenson Squeeze it crashes no notes or error messages, it just shuts down.

If I were to export 3 QT Refs, then want to save them as 5 versions of Win Media (small, med, large, ppt large, ppt small, for example) it will surely crash before all work is done. Additionally, if it does crank through one movie and I try to import the next QT Ref, crash. It's not just Win Media files, I also get this when exporting MPEG4, so Im thinking its something to do with DNxHD75. Also, if I were to export SD video, SOrenson would go right thru the list, exporting exactly as told with no crashes, working fine.

I did notice that if I open multiple instances of Sorenson Squeeze, then just import one QT REF, exporting to a few formats it works fine. I literally have 4 windows open, cranking through material.

For reference, I tried using the original P2 DVCPRO HD material both in QT REF & Full QT and it worked fine. DNxHD seems to be the culprit.

The beauty of Squeze is that you can set up a batch list. Import 4 different QT Refs, give it 5 audience presents click SQUEEZE then go home, the work is done in the morning. With DNxHD (at least for me) you need to babysit the system, going one at a time. I did submit a support ticket with Sorenson, but have not heard back. Anyone else having a similar problem? Any fixes?

Squeeze, QT 7.5.5(990.7), MC 3.1.32, XW8400, Analog Mojo-- thanks for your help.
