Every single premiere cc project file I have including my auto-save prj files will not load. I get the error message "The Project Appears to be Damaged, it can not be opened". This is for all my Premiere CC Projects. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Premiere with no avail. Is there anything I can do in order to salvage these corrupt files and the work/effort associated with them?
Auto save overwrite itself after so many times. So if the project is corrupt all the auto save get corrupt also over time.
Did you save a copy to another drive after every edit session.
These files do not overwrite and you have the oppertunity to go back a day or more without loosing too much work.
How many projects are we talking about.
Mac or windows.
Please post one of your projects so that we can try loading it.
Is there anything common to all your sequences--a particular clip, an effect or transition? What happens if you create a project, leave it completely empty of assets and sequences, save, close, and reload?
If even the most basic sequence won't open, then one possiblity is that something's messed up in your preferences. To test this, try moving or renaming the "Profile-<username>" folder under Documents/Adobe/Premiere Pro/7.0.
I tried moving/renaiming the Prefrences with no avail,... I've uploaded a zip file of the project file to the cloud. It can be accsessed here; http://adobe.ly/1bOBdox
Thank you in advance for any assitance in this matter,
Thank you so much Mark, I should point out that I used a Warp Stablizer within this project. Advanced Detail with the Rolling Shutter Ripple with Enhanced Reduction on a few clips, that are more than a 3-5 seconds long.
I'm not sure if that helps.
If you're on Mac, you can try Digital Rebellion's suite of tools that includes Project Repair, which can strip the Warp Stabilizer data from your project. Keyframes too, which is another source of crashing/corruption, especially I've noticed on imported FCP7 projects.
If you're on Windows, you could get somebody to run the tool for you, as Pr Projects are supposed to be cross-platform compatible.
If you want to upload it and send me a link, I'll run it through Project Repair for you and send it back. But, I don't hover on this list like some people.
Joachim, I'm getting the same failure on the project you sent me via PM. It looks like it's loading, until I get the screen that says, "This project could not be loaded, it may be damaged or contain outdated elements."
Hopefully, since an Adobe team member has acknowledged this is a repeatable issue, a fix is around the corner.
So, I take it you don't have an Autosaved version that preceded the time you applied the Warp Stabilizer?
For future reference, I usually do and suggest a Save As every day, or with every significant change, and increment my Project name - sort of like a manual version of Increment and Save that Ae and other apps have. That way, if I get in this kind of a bind, I have a working previous version.
Sorry this didn't work for you.
Jennifer & Joachim: I have been unable to reproduce this issue with a project that I created from scratch. So some additional info will help.
Also, please report the specifications for your computer. This page list info that helps us troubleshoot: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4200840#4200840
Update: A developer has investigated the project you provided, Jennifer, but was not able to find anything illuminating. So the only way we'll be able to nail this is to isolate a set of steps to create a project that turns out corrupt. The questions in my prior post should be a good start toward isolating a repro case.
I'm also curious, since this thread began sometime around the release of the Dynamic Link 7.01 update (not to be confused with the Premiere Pro CC 7.01 update). Have you applied that update, and if so, was it working before that update?
I only first noticed the DL7.01 update on Monday, July 22 (I think), so maybe this isn't the issue. I have not installed that update, yet, so I'd be willing to give your project a try... as long as it won't corrupt all of my other projects...
FYI: Windows 7 Proffessional, i7 w/ 24 Gig of Ram, nVidia Card...
You've raised a great question cscooper2013...
This has me thinking,... I initially thought there was something wrong with Dynamic Linking,
Originally this project was started in CS6 and then opened in CC and re-saved as such (CC)...
I have tried creating both a Blank Clean CS6 as well as a CC Project and tried importing either the project or a single sequence and it hangs on the Dynamic Link Window...
This may be where the issue lies. Dynamic Linking,...
I mean Dynamic Linking has been error-prone in CC—hence the DL bug fix release—but I don't know that this issue sounds like it's related. Had you installed the DL update before things started going wrong?
Another activity that I keep noticing as a common denominator for a few other bugs is having started a project in CS6 and then trying to finish the project in CC. This seems to be the determining factor in whether broken CC Multicam Sequences can be fixed with the PPr7.01 patch, or not, as well as a few other issues I've seen here and there in these forums.
Can someone tell me if using the Adobe ExtendScript Took kit may work? I've used XML Wrench in the past however, I can't seem to open CC Project files in it. Is Premiere CC writen in a different code? And if so, what would be a good way to debug it, or at the very least strip some code from it so the project may open?
