I got this kind of bad video a couple of times. Things that would jerk Protools to a standstill or crash it. Usually the picture department has no trouble producing something that works well. The picture assistants I've worked with always told be it was a matter of changing an option in the Avid Media composer export.

The trouble with the Avid Media Composer(Nitris and Symphony) about five years ago was that the Avid Media Composer was painfully slow at encoding H264 media. It was quicker to do a live playout to DVD, a Protools AV option video device or an external video player/recorder and give that to you.

Please keep us up to date and provide any dangerous video files you're allowed to that could perhaps help us prevent this kind of debacle.
