Modifying speed of clips and rendering problem


Trying this thread here -- I have some extended (lengthy) clips of a slow moving tundra avalanche that I have dropped on the timeline - totals to about 6 hours. My goal is to cut it down to about 30 minutes by modifying clip(s) speed. I have modified (increased speed) of the clips anywhere from 1500% to 6000% - and they appear to play just fine on the non-rendered timeline. I want to render out in both QT and Flash - to post on YouTube, etc.

BUT - when I hit the render function - and the rainbow progression wheel starts to spin - it does just that - it spins, and spins, and spins, etc. No render progression window appears and the wheel just spins, and spins, etc. I have to hard quit FC Pro 6.06 version - and I have yet to figure out what is going on - not that I am a pro at this stuff.

I have a MacPro dual core 3.0Ghz - 10gb ram - XT1900 video card - and FC Pro 6.06. Any body got some ideas and some workflow corrections or suggestions for me ? Would appreciate any help !

Scratch Disk/Sub-sequence

Is your scratch disc on the same drive as your raw media? Try rendering to an alternate drive and see if that helps. Or cut up your master sequence into sub-sequences and render those out separately, assemble them when done.
