iMovie Publishing Problem

I am using a Macbook Air, 10.7.2, and iMovie 11. I started a new project with numerous video clips imported from a flashdrive. All seemed well until I went to "Finalize project". Initially it said that it would take 8 hours to render the project in 1080p as requested, but after about two hours it stopped with the following message

Unable to prepare project for publishing.

The project could not be prepared for publishing because an error occurred. (File already open with write permission)

I tried it twice with the same result. I checked the video clips and all had read/write permissions. Any suggestions?

Thank you
