    Problem exporting finished sequence

    Hi,

    I have finished a film in Media Composer, Mixdown Video and Audio. it plays in MC all just fine. 48 Minutes long.

    when I do Output - Export to file - select AVI, I get after a while an Error msg:

    "Exception: Maximum size of AVI file has been reached. Resulting output may not be complete."

    And, of course the file 1.9 GB) does not play.

    What am I doing wrong?

    thanks

    Not sure - but why AVI?  Fairly unusual container type these days.

    AVI exports from Avid have had a max size of 2 GB for a LONG time (at least 15 years, based on Google searches for this error message).

    There's likely another file type that you can use for whatever you need - and it'll probably export much faster, too.

    As usatraveler wrote, it is the size limitation of the AVI format in Avid and many other apps. Choose another format for compression.

    I recommend exporting as MXF Op1a (via the Avid Media Processor) for mastering.
