FCP 7 crashing

I am experiencing crashing with FCP 7, I have a 60 minute HD show and have some clips that are mp4. I understand these clips are hard on FCP 7 and may be the cause of the crashes. Also, even though I render the entire project, when it crashes and I re-open the project, many of the clips need to be re-rendered again. Very frustrating. ANy ideas why? Thanks.

OS X 10.6.8
2,15 GHz Intel

is it the mp4 clips that require re-rendering?
you might have to bight the bullet and go ahead and convert them to Prores.

What Nick said, and make certain your renders are NOT being routed to your system-boot disk, which is normally busy reading and writing system and app resources, but to a distinctly separate scratch disk, either where primary captures are stored or routed into a Render Files folder on that or on yet another scratch disk.

Best, as always.
