Many hours later....
Learnings: render everyhting out first. Delete all old render files before doing that. Then Export to Quicktime. That's pretty quick and doesn't fail!
The show is finally up. 'nite all!

OK, that didn't work :-( After a 3 hour render FCP threw an 'Out of Memory' error. So I went back to logical thinking. If it's a codec error, lets look at the codec I'm using. It was set to render in the HD/DVD Codec. I changed that to the Apple Pro Res codec, and the render time now shows 'about an hour', which is great (if it works), but also, the Real Time rendering (RT) now works again. Hmmm. Fingers AND legs crossed this time!
Back from the 'salon' All nice and freshly trimmed now :-)
Looks like I may have solved my FCP problem. Turns out duplicating a timeline can (eventually) make for corruption that results in the dreaded 'codec error'. The Annie Duke interview is 27 minutes, a bit on the long side, but she's very interesting and entertaining to watch and listen to. I'm considering an audio version of the show as a podcast.
3 hour render time in HD, which is what I like my master vids to be, then I 'dumb it down' to work on Android, iPhone and iPad, as well as embeddable flash video. 33 minutes to go, fingers crossed!
I had the same template experience yesterday as dave did, nice to see a fetaure solving that today :-)
Off to see the hair god maintenance man and then figure out what is causing the 'codec error' in my FInal Cut Pro setup. It's borked a rendering of my 20 minute interview with Poker Superstar Annie Duke 4 times now. I need to get this thing up and published before she releases another book :-)
