I am using Final Cut Express.
I have inserted a video as an .AVI file and am trying to get the video rendered so that i may proceed in editing it. I have done this before without any problem. But this time at about 15% or so it will cancel the rendering process and say "File Name Error-Illegal file name" ...I have no idea what this means and am curious as to what it does mean. I have never had this problem before. Also, this is a legit movie source, nothing illegally done or pirated.

hope anyone can help.
have a good one.

Check System Settings - make sure "Limit Capture/Export File Segment Size" is unchecked.

Sometimes renaming the file works.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
