I open an old PSD file that I used to create and animated gif with. The timline panel showed the animation frames and I was able to preview it with its play button. I then used the Timeline Fly-out menu and clicked convert to Video Timeline. The frames became a single layer and the Timeline panel showed a single video clip which I previewed using the play button in the Timeline Panel. I then used the timeline fly-out menu and clicked render video. After some time a pop-up window with a progress bar appeared with the title initialization video export its progress bar went to 3/4 the length and hung there in a loop. Using the pop-up window's cancel button closed the initialization video export window however soon a new initialization video export pop-up showed up the progress bar when to 3/4 and hung looping. Tried several timed to cancel would up having to terminate CS6 with the task manager.

Sounds like you're on Windows. What flavor of Windows? Can you post the file you're having trouble with?

Windows XP Professional SP3 32Bit system with most windows update I have stopped applying new update for one of the cause windows to ear all mt system disk space. Rebooting recovered the space it ate so I restored my system to a previous state.

I have the same Problem on my Windows 7 Professional system all updates applied with Photoshop CS6 32bit exe the 64Bit exe does not have the problem. The failure happens when I create a Frame animation convert it to a timeline video and try to render a video. I can preview it using the timeline palette's play button.
