I'm really hoping someone might be able to shed some light on a reoccurring issue I've been having with Redrushes. We've just wrapped week one on a feature and each night I've been running the R3D files through Redrushes to create the ProRes files I'll be editing with later. On average, I've been attempting to batch about 45 - 50 clips for the day.
Unfortunately, Redrushes seems to hang before finishing. Sometimes it's after the first hour or so of crunching away or sometimes when it's on the last few clips. There doesn't seem to be any consistency on when it decides to screech to a halt.
I just purchased a brand new MacPro Quad (18gb, 2.5tb internal drive space) last week to handle this workflow. I've disconnected all external drives before running Redrushes to rule out any interference from them but without any luck.
Does anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this problem? Are there log files somewhere that might provide a hint?
Any help on this would be very much appreciated since, at this time, it takes me several attempts to get a full batch of clips to complete.
