Thread: Unknown error

    Default Unknown error

    I am experiencing a lot of weird problems with Premiere Pro 1.5. I did not have the same problems with Premiere Pro 1.

    Appart from that the software actually seems a little more unstable than the previous version I have had to start using Windows Movie Maker for encoding wmv and avi files.

    Using the media encoder in PP results in "unknown error" and a file showing only the first 10 to 15 seconds of what should have been a 22 minute video. ..of course it takes 2 hours and 50 minutes of encoding before I get this message. I can export it to DV-AVI no problems.

    It is very frustrating. No help from Adobe... ("it should work" basically)

    If I select a small (one minute) work bar area the encoding is fine.

    I upgraded to get the project trim feature but this upgrade is really starting to get to me.

    Is anyone experiencing anything like this?

    Thanks in advance

    I've read a lot about the Mainconcept MPEG encoding engine inside Premiere 1.5 not liking the update (the long and short of it is that there IS a problem - which strangely enough stems from a work around in Premiere 1.0). Lucky for me, I never output to anything other than DV AVI from Premiere (then convert outside).

    hmmm looks like i'll continue to use W Movie Maker for encoding then.

    Do you have any links to where you have read about this problem? I haven't seen anything, and support at adobe has not mentioned this to me in their emails.

    great upgrade...

    Have you by any chance just upgraded Windows XP to SP2? If so have a look at:!login=true

    Strangely, I think the answer is to rename one of your files (details in above thread).
