Thread: Failed to return a video frame

    Default Failed to return a video frame

    Hope all is well,

    I'm a noob working with Premiere Pro. Been working on a couple of different projects and the software has performed well. Having problems when I try to encode the video using the Adobe Media encoder. I've been trying to encode Mpeg2-ntsc for DVD authoring with another software program (pinnacle studio 9 at this point)

    Once the encoding process is started, things look as if they're going well. The computer will encode about 3 minutes of the video and then I get the message "adobe premiere pro failed to return a video frame. Cancelling the operation." Just for "fun," I've tried encoding different projects using different settings... ie PAL... 720p... wmv... I get the same results.

    The program will let me create AVI files, but they are freakin HUGE!!

    Any ideas? Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

    On Premiere 2.0 error try to reencode again the vob or mpg .
    Ex: Use Tmpgenc and reencode the video again to Pal or NTSC (depending the case) .
    Then go to the directory where you have your mpg file where adobe is using and gave that error and replace it with this one new reencoded by tmpgenc .

    P.S. use the name of the file and extension with the same name as the old one .

    It worked for me on this way .

    Hope helped someone
