    But actually, I spit it out of AE, brought the mov of the edit into PP, dropped it on top of the disabled video and used the multicam audio (because when I flattened it, it chose whatever audio was attached to the visible clip rather than the good audio on the main camera), and voila, everything exported beautifully. So the multicam audio wasn’t an issue there.

    Last update, then I’m moving on with this unless I find the illusive definitive answer.

    Today I was able to output one of the 2 files that had multicams (the suspected culprit) with absolutely no issue. I did change from exporting h264s to QT 422 HQ, so I thought perhaps that was the fix (it’s what I successfully exported from AE in desperation in my first post).

    So I moved on to the second video, and nope. Not working. It hated all the different ways I tried to export it. After 23-27% completion, the whole machine just locked up. I could force quit after a few attempts, and I never had to hard power off. But if I tried to do anything without first shutting down and restarting completely, the whole system was just too mad to function.

    After trying a variety of export settings, I created a new comp, unlinked my audio, and flattened my multicams. Still no good. 23-27% and then we just sat waiting until I couldn’t take it anymore and went through the whole force quit, shut down, restart rigamarole.

    So I sent it on to AE, spit out a beautiful QT 422 HQ, brought it back into PP, slapped it on top of my audio cut, and BOOM! Export. And a speedy one at that. I looked away and when I looked back, we were done.

    So maybe it’s the MXFs, maybe it’s the multicams, maybe it’s Adobe is cruel and awful and just loves to torment me, I don’t know. But I do know that AE is my friend and PP can eat a turd (today. Who knows what fresh hell tomorrow will bring).

    Thanks for all the suggestions.
