Problems using CCE freezing using either FILM MACHINE or DVD2SVCD read in ....

OK i decided to make this a sticky here that a lot of people recently have had trouble with CCE locking up and freezing when encoding ...

A recent discovery by myself was that it was caused in my case and a few others found to be problematic ATI CATALYST™ drivers to be at fault :(

A change/upgrade or rollback/downgrade of these drivers has resolved the CCE freeze problems in several cases :)

So to sum up IF you have an ATI RADEON SERIES of card in your system and are having lockups with CCE then try downgrading or upgrading the CATALYST™ drivers and see if this resolves the LOCKUPS :)

hope this helps some people with their encoding problems :)
