    max bin size MC


    Does anyone know if there is a suggested max bin size?  I'm using a new mac pro with 32GB RAM. I have one sequence in a bin and that bin is 108MB. I'm trying to export same as source to either the local desktop or a local thunderbolt drive. I get the Segmentation Fault at thread 0x00 error every time I try. I mixed down the audio which brought my bin/sequence down to 80MB but it still crashes. I've tried this on three mac pros each with 32MB RAM.


    Our bins each with one sequence that are only 40MB export just fine. The structure of the sequences are the same. We're using all the video and audio tracks, they are just shorted chunks of our project.


    Does anyone know if there's a limit to a sequence size?  I was hoping that because MC is now finally 64-bit we wouldn't have these memory issues any more.


    Thanks for any input regarding this.

    Same as source export has no bearing on bin size. It's all about the sequence and the content.

     Have you tried a video mixdown as well? Not to reduce bin size but to simplify the sequence.
