I've looked everywhere for the anwser to this and I've tried everything, I just really want this project file to be fixed/uncorrupted if it is.
Alright so I have Premiere cs4 on Windows 7 and its working fine it opens new projects and mostly all of my old ones besides this one project I have. This project is 14.9mb (I know thats pretty large, but I've been working on it for a while now) and everytime I try and open it the load project window comes up and it freezes at around 95% of the way. I can still move the load project window around but if I press cancel then Premiere turns white and doesn't respond.
This is a common problem that I have found but I haven't found a solution that works for me.
Here's what I've tried:
Restarting my computer
changing file names (so it brings of the media offline, but it never gets that far)
reinstalling premiere (almost worked, now it gets to about 95% instead of like 75%)
unplugging external hard drives (once again to get the media offline window, but it doesn't come up)
using xml wrench (I'm not to familar with this program but I've tried to use it)
Is there any hope? I don't have any usable autosaves either I just really want to fix this corrupt project that I've been working on for over a year now.
how many external drives are you using ? is the project resources on the external drives ?
are you running out of hard drive space on your boot drive and externals ?
what kind of connection to your external hard drives ?
my gut feeling is you're having a hardware problem maybe.. although it could be some software problem, but it might be good to eliminate what problems might be happening one step at a time sorta... like see if it's hardware ...and if NOT then deal with it as if it is a software problem. unfortunately fixing things usually means eliminating potential causes in a methodical way and it takes time.
also you'd need to supply tons of info about how your system is set up and stuff like that...or everyone is just guessing without any info to focus on particular potential solutions...
good luck !
Alright so I have 2 external hard drives ones 500gb the other is 250. The project is on my computer's drive which has 129gb's free on it. I'd say probably 3/4th's of the footage in the project are on my computer's hard drive. My hard drives are connected via USB. I'm only running 3gb of memory on a 2.4GHz processor (32bit WIndows 7) but that the footage is mostly just standard definition 720x480 avi files. I've never really had a problem running it. The only other thing I haven't tried is opening the project on another computer but I don't have access to another one with Premiere right now. If you need anymore info let me know thank you!
I am not sure of the difference or which one of those I have, but even when I disconnect my external hard drives and try and open the project it still doesn't load enough for the "media offline" window to come up.
Okay and whenever I try and open the project in after effect I get this exact message:
"After Effects error: Adobe Premiere Pro Dynamic Link Server is busy.
Dynamic Link is only supported in one direction per session.
(86 :: 1)"
All I want to do is be able to export what I had in the project if I can. I also have a pretty recent dvd burn through encore of the entire project but I doubt I'd be able to get a full quality file of it off of that.
im sorry to say this problem is beyond my ability to understand what could be wrong and help you...but just thought I'd let you know I looked at the post and others will also look at it, and see if they can help. so dont think nobody is thinking about it and trying to come up with a way to help out.
I see some things you might consider changing for future use of editing program in general , but at this point its moot.. for your current problem. In other words, no sense closing the barn door after the horses have run off... with regard to those particular horses.
I have to hope that someone else here can help you, especially with that mssg from dynamic link which is interesting... but I dont use after effects so am no use to you.
sorry, but my advice is limited to checking stupid stuff that would take a lot of time to look into..and probably has nothing to do with your real problem...I'm coming up blank with suggestions to even begin to troubleshoot the problem.
Hopefully someone else will have a brain storm...
sorry you're having trouble, and good luck !
In case anyone is wondering, I ended up going to a friends house who has CS5 and USB 3.0 and it ended up working. So apparently cs5 or usb 3.0 or the combination of the two was the solution. thanks for everyone who helped
