Have not seen Bob around for a bit, but hopefully he's still around. He's got an X-platform shop, as I recall, so knows "both sides of the street." I could have suggested similar, but it's ONLY on the PC. Glad you found this one, as I now have learned a bit more about Mac's. Sh-h-h, don't tell the PC-community.
Now, there are many threads, both here and on the Creative Cow, about ImporterProcessServer. IIRC, it has been a bit of culprit for PS, PrPro and AE too. Hope that there are some useful tid-bits in there, or that Bob stops back by.
Fixed but not solved.....
Thanks to Bill and Bob - I searched for ImporterProcessServer posts and found one that said that turning off and on your machine usually solves any issues. Yeah, I know it's tech support 101 but hey sometimes the most obvious answers! So seeing as it was the simplest solution I tried it and VIOLA!
So yes Premiere is working again! I was able to open the project I was working on - so no corruption with the original file.
So I guess the question is what the hell happened??? Why did premiere crash out of nowhere and then refuse to open???
I guess the answer lies in the mysteries of the ImporterProcessServer....
So big thanks to Bill and Bob!
I'm having the same problem with premiere pro it will load up to about 95% and stop, it dosen't shut down though. I have a deadline fast approaching I looked at my activity monitor but I'm not sure what im looking for and what to do to get this program back up and running...... can anyone help?!!
I found a fix for my similar problem. PProCS4 would load but freeze ("Not Responding") when loading any project.
Through weeks of trial and error, I discovered it was a background program loading in the 'startup' section of MSCONFIG.EXE that was conflicting.
In my case it was OmniPageSE2.0. Disabling that in MSCONFIG allowed PremierPro and Encore CS4 to work for me again.
Maybe you have a different program interferring with PPRO.
