    Estoy intentando exportar una película en 1080 e imovie y poco antes de finalizar se interrumpe. Aparece un aviso que pone "error -50". Puede alguien decirme que es error -50?
    I`m trying to export a 1080 iMovie, but short before it is over, the rendering stops and pop up a text which reads, error -50, Can anyone tell me what this error is about?
    Many thanks

    Need more information: how much memory, disk do you have, how much free disk space is available, what version of iMovie, how long is the clip you're trying to render. Errors such as this can mean that your Mac is running out of something - disk space, memory. For example, if it renders to a 5GB file, and you only have 4GB of free space - that will be a problem.

    My Mac is OSX Lion version 10.7.5. Processor 2,7 Ghz Intel core i5. Memory 4Gb
    I have plenty of room in my HD (850 Gb).
    As you say, it is a big project (30`)
    Thank you for your answer, Kohl

    Error -50 stands for incorrect export parameter.
    If it fails just before the end, then you likley have a corrupt clip on the timeline.

    If it fails at 75% for example, look at clips three quarters of the way into your timeline, try removing some one by one until you isolate the bad clip.

    I`ll try to be patient and do as you say. At the beginning I had thought that a corrupt file wouldn´t be the problem because I was able to export a 720p movie, but at this moment I can´t see any other possibility.
    If i manage to solve the problem I´ll text you.
    Thank you very much northernmunky
