I am encoding Quicktime Source files from my Avid Media Composer. And at least once a day, if I encode something in AME in the background, after it starts a file, about 5 or 10seconds of encoding..suddenly...BAM! Black screens and a full restart. It is a pretty rare problem where an application takes the system down. So I find it quite alarming.
Funny thing is after it crashes, it will encode.
It seems to be a combo of Avid MC and AME running at the same time.
But only crashes some of the time.
