So I was working away. ploughing through upwards of a hundred renders from separate AE-projects yesterday. All of which rendered through AME and used the 440 Avid DNxHD preset. No problem. Exported from AE CC to AME CC and then imported to the Premiere Pro CC-project.
I noticed that there's a new update for all the Adobe Video Apps and decided to just update them. Turned off the computer for the night. And then started the new days work today. Made a new AE CC project and built the comp. Export to AME. Use the trusty preset all the other exports used. AME rendered quickly as usual. Gave the signal that it was done successfully. I import it to Premiere Pro CC and... "Importer reported a general error.".
I have yet to try using the Quicktime wrapped DNxHD-codec to see if it's just the MXF-files that fails.
I'm using the 23.976fps presets on a Win7 64bit machine. And the comps are simple 2D-animations built with PNG's and default plugins that was included with AE except Colorista Free
Anyone had any problem of this sort after the just released update?
Updated for spelling mistake
Is this only happening with AE projects?
what happens if you try to encode a PPro project instead of AE?
Even simpler yet, try to encode a single .mov file or other individual files and see if you are running into this issue.
I can reproduce the problem. Exporting from AME 7.0.1 using a DNxHD 440X preset creates a problematic MXF file. Doesn't happen with AME 7.0, just with AME 7.0.1. I was only able to reproduce this with DNxHD 440X presets, other DNX presets seemed to work fine.
I also tried exporting to QuickTime DNxHD 440X and that worked as well.
Found out this isn't a bug... We changed how we write DNxHD MXF files in AME CC 7.0.1 to match the newer Avid spec. The problem only arises when you try to import these files using Premiere CC 7.0 or After Effects CC 12.0, which only recognize the older Avid spec.
Try updating Premiere CC to 7.0.1, that should fix the problem on the Premiere side.
may i know if the After Effects update, that was targetted for September 2013, for solving the corrupt DnxHD files coming from AME CC7.0.1 and After Effects CC is coming out?
Or is there a patch available besides having to re-encode everything?
