    Hello Diosan

    It would help to know more about the system you're working on.  Which version of Media Composer are you running?  Which specific OS? What processor? What video card? How much RAM? Where is your media stored? 

    If you edit your user profile, you can add this information so you don't have to type it all the time.  (Look at the bottom of this post for an example.)

    I'd suspect a duff bit of media. The normal stroubkleshhoting process would be to divide the probelematic sequence up and export as parts to narrow down the issue.
