    Hello,

    I would like to export the video I created (1h 05 min total, expected final size 10 GB) using the share > file functionality. The original sources files are .MTS (H264 MPEG-4 AVC 1920x1080 50fps Audio AC3 (A52) 48KHz).
    Export parameters used are:
    • Video and Audio
    • 1080p
    • Quality: high
    • Compression: best quality

    I disabled the energy saving settings preventing my iMac to sleep.
    I have tried to save it on the local HDD (with 700GB free) and on a network SMB share.

    At the end I always receive the error "failed to share" and in the details there is just "rendering error 60" (of which I was not able to find any description on the internet).

    I tried restarting iMovie and rebooting my iMac, nothing changes.

    During the exporting process a .mp4 file is created and three other temporary files are created as well, but of the times at the end the .mp4 file is zero byte.

    I also attach some logs related to iMovie that occurred during the exporting process. Logs.png

    Do you have any additional details on the error 60 or do you know how to solve the issue please?

    Thank you

    iMac (27-inch Mid 2011), OS X Yosemite (10.10.1), iMovie 10.1.1

    Try omitting the network SMB share, see if it works to try and narrow down the problem.

    thanks for the reply, yes I tried a local folder many times but always with the same results. Screen of logs are actually taken from one of my last try while saving on the local HDD.

    Have you had the problem before? Have you tried a shorter; ie 5min, video with different resolution/quality settings?

    Actually this is the first time with 1920x1080 files, I did longer movies with DV sources and I never had issues exporting (of course the exporting configuration was different I think it was maximum 720p I don't remember exactly now).

    Any other ideas?

    I had this problem recently and the fix was to create a new library and project and copy and paste the timeline into the new project. The export worked fine from the new project.

    Apparently something was corrupt in the original.

    I think your problem might be the source file being H264 MPEG4. Yes, it all looks good and edits well, but it will not share. I'm sure I had the same problem recently. I had to re-import the file as .mov or something more acceptable, drop it in place of the .mts bits, and hey presto.

    I did all kinds of stuff like you too..

    my movie exported at like 70% everytime... i looked at the3 failed attempts was able to render to my hard drive, and it ended at the exact same spot in all 3 ... i went into imove and saw there was a transition from camera A to B ( there where 30 of these transitions, not a big deal) however, i grabbed that B-role and shortened it by 2 seconds, just to change it... and next export worked.... total glitch in the software...

    I propose your imovie is glitching in the beginning... perhaps throw a short video clip at the beginning to see if you can isolate the transition point that is glitching..

    this has happened to me twice in one year and i make a lot of videos
