PRE10 "Unspecified error occurred while performing a conform action on the following file:..."

I really need some help!

I am making a short video on premiere elements 10 and I seem to get this conforming error everytime I open the project and I cannot save it either!!

 

"Unspecified error occured while performing a conform action on the following file:

File0002.AVI 48000.CFA"

 

This happens everytime I open premiere elements 10  to lots (or all) of my video clips and I can't find any help in the adobe forums or anywhere else online!

 

Also, I want to save this video as an AVI file, but when I try to export it, it says it has finished quite quickly and has not even added anything to click on or when it does, it does not play. Sometimes it says it has finished then comes up with: "Error compiling movie. Unknown error". one of these happen everytime that I try to save it.

 

Lots (or all) of my avi files come up as this same conforming error when I load the project and I have no clue as to what to do!...

 

It also crashes nearly everytime after these compiling errors!

 

My computer is running windows 7 ultimate OS

 

Please help!

Please...!

    Welcome to the forum.

     

    First, I would look over this ARTICLE on PrE crashes, and prevention.

     

    Next, this ARTICLE gives some background on the Conforming process.

     

    Then, this ARTICLE gives some pointers on Compiling Movie errors.

     

    I would also post the full system specs., and especially your I/O, i.e. HDD's (I suspect there might be a problem here), and also the specs. of your Source Footage. This ARTICLE will give you tips on what info is very useful.

     

    Good luck,

    >I/O, i.e. HDD's

     

    I/O = Input/Output HDD's = Hard Drives

     

    My 3 hard drives to edit AVCHD are configured as...
    1 - 320Gig Boot for Win7 64bit Pro and all program installs
    2 - 320Gig data for Win7 paging swap file and video project files
    When I create a project on #2 drive, the various work files follow,
    so my boot drive is not used for the media cache folder and files
    3 - 1Terabyte data for all video files... input & output files (*)
    (*) for 4 drives, drive 3 all source files & drive 4 all output files
    .
    Search Microsoft to find out how to redirect your Windows paging swap file

    Trying to use only ONE Hard Drive for Video Editing
    .
    You are a music conductor, with a baton that you use to point to various parts of the orchestra... this is like Windows pointing to various parts of the hard drive to do Windows housekeeping or to load program segments for various functions
    .
    Now, at the same time and with the same hand... while still using the baton to conduct the orchestra... pick up a bow and play a fiddle... this would be doing something with your video file at the same time as all the other work
    .
    You as a person cannot do both at the same time with the same hand
    .
    A computer is a LITTLE better, in that it can switch from one kind of task to another very quickly... but not quickly enough for EASY video editing
    .
    You need AT LEAST two hard drives (separate drives, never a partition http://forums.adobe.com/thread/650708 for more) with Windows (or Mac OS) and software on your boot drive, and video files on a 2nd drive so the boot drive is not slowed down by trying to do everything

    I find that the three drives I use work very well for me, for editing AVCHD video... some people use a 4th drive, so video INPUT files are on drive three and all OUTPUT files are on drive four... I only bought a mid-tower case instead of a full tower case (my bad... but had to fit in the space available on my office desk!) so I use the three drives that will fit
    .
    Depending on your exact hardware (motherboard brand & model AND USB2 enclosure brand & model AND external hard drive brand & model) AND the type of video file, you may... or may NOT... be able to use an external USB2 hard drive for SD (Standard Definition) video editing

    Steve Grisetti in the Premiere Elements forum http://forums.adobe.com/thread/856208 and Jim Simon in the Premiere Pro forum http://forums.adobe.com/thread/856433 use USB externals for editing
    .
    A USB3 hard drive connected to a motherboard with USB3 is supposed to be fast enough for video editing (I don't have such, so don't know) but eSata DOES have a fast enough data transfer for video editing... I have not used the eSata Dock below... for reference only, YMMV and all the usual disclaimers

    Sorry about that. Usually, I will add this ARTICLE on I/O. John T. bailed me out.

     

    Good luck,

    Can you recreate the conformed files and see if that helps? To do this clear the media cache. Go to "%appdata%\Adobe\Common\" (Type this with the quotes in the Run Bar) Clear the folders there. Restart PrE10 and see if the confirming happens correctly this time.

     

    If this does not solve the problem, I suggest you re-encode the audio alone. To do this use vlc player. Launch the player, Go to Media->Convert/Save, Click on Add and add this file. Now click on convert. This will throw up another window, here click on the icon that is highlighted in the screenshotvlc_convert.png

    In the next screen, go to Audio codec tab and select another format, say mp3 and then re-encode the file. Do not change anything else.

     

    Import the filegenerated from vlc into PRE. This shoul work now. Try and let us know.

    I emptied \AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Common\Media Cache Files. And then I was able to conform project files. .mpeg files. Sony 1080i. Windows 7 Professional Ed.
