Hello Geniuses, I've been a lurker til now....great site in all... I need help....which everyone knows, but I actually need help in regard to video editing, using Final Cut Express 2, on my iMac. I own an iMac (pre-iSight days...) 2Ghz PPC with 2Gig ram and 250gig HD (also attached is a fw connected 500 gig HD!, I bought it mainly due to this specific error..thinking it would some how sort it out. peh.). Recently went on my hols (thailand and dubai - t'was really nice) and when I came back I had over 7 hours of DV footage, I uploaded it all and saved it within iMovie HD then imported into Final Cut Express 2 (don't ask why I did this capturing procedure a long winded way...me == teh odd) and started editing - half way through tape uno i suddenly get an error message 'error: out of memory'...this fine prompt disables me from doing any rendering of footage or actual SAVING!! I've tried working in different ways - having the footage on my main HD and also my external one...nothing seems to work. I have had problems with my iMac, it's gone through 3 logic boards already (I only bought it in Sept '05)...could it be the mac? or is it something I've stupidly missed out upon. Help with this would be appreciated as I cannot work like this...it's just really frustrating!!
