I need help.

I am very new at this and I have been working hard to make a simple video (3min40sec in total) and when I click Produce it stops at 54%. It is extremely annoying and I am incredibly frustrated because it is my first video with PowerDirector and I did not expect this, right at the last step.

Whatever quality I choose, it stops rendering at 54%. I am using PowerDirector 365 (updated) on a Mac, I don't know how to give specifics of my case from Mac (there are no guidelines for that).

I am opting for H264 AVC | MP4 | NTSC (1280x720)

I chose Fast video rendering with Hardware video encoder, but I tried without it too.
I also tried lower quality, and PAL, but it's the same, it gets stuck at 54%.

Can anybody help me? Guide me at least with how to give more information?

As most people on this user forum have Windows systems it's not likely that we'll be able to help with the specifics of a Mac, but there are some quick steps that may resolve your issue.

The first is to use the Profile Analyzer to find the Best Matched Format for your source clips. If you have NTSC clips (30p or 60p for the US) you won't normally want to produce to PAL (25p or 50p for most of the rest of the world) or vice-versa. Stick with the same framerate as your source clips whenever possible.

If you're still stuck at 54% when producing with the Best Matched Profile, try again with the Fast video rendering technology option on the Produce page UNchecked. You may also need to uncheck the Enable hardware decoding option under Preferences | Hardware Acceleration.

If none of those help, take a look at what happens on your project timeline starting at 2:01:00, which is where the blockage occurs and see if you can see at least what's there that might be causing PD to stall. Feel free to post a screenshot of that section if you'd like us to help.

Thank you, optodata, your answer helped, I shortened a title I had added at that specific moment and it worked.
I managed to produce my video.

Grateful for your patience smile

Maybe there should be a section on the Index for PowerDirector for Mac. That way all of the conversations for Mac can be grouped into one area. Subscribe to PowerDirector University on YouTube.
