Hi (again) I thought I’d give a try at editing in The Blender Sequence Editor and when I add a video it takes 2.46 seconds then BOOM “The Application Blender quit unexpectedy” pops up(Mac OS X)
Try reinstallling it.
Sounds like your video codec is crashing, not Blender. convert the video to something normal. How big is the video file? You may be running out of memory - what does the console say?
What version of blender are you using, there was a problem with ffmpeg in the 2.46RC1 builds I think…
The file is a .mov , My Blender build is 2.46 RC2
Have you tried with an older stable version of blender, i.e. 2.45?
