Adobe Media Encoder hanging

Dec 17, 2010 12:01 PM

Premiere Pro CS4

 

File > Export > Youtube SD > 640x480

 

Media on C drive > encoding to C drive

 

After 3 mins, adobe media encoder hangs, elapsed queue time does not move, elapsed time does not move, estimated remaining does not move.

I only have 2 titles in video, no video transitions, and an mp3 audio file i added in.

 

what should i try?

    Same exact thing happening to me. CS4, encoding to VBR 2-pass F4V (H.264) with AAC audio. PProHeadless.exe seems to still be pulling from the CPU and using RAM, but Adobe Media Encoder.exe process showing RAM usage but 0% CPU. It doesn't say "not responding" however. Estimated Remaining timer has not moved in an hour. How do I know if it's frozen?

    A different project with different media.  Does it still hang, or only on this project?

    Actually, this may help. Since it didn't say "Not responding", I just went to a different computer and left it alone. Eventually, it started back up again and finished, although it did end up taking about 6 hours to encode - which is a lot for a dual, dual core computer hyperthreaded to 8 cores! I suppose it just needed more time that it estimated (by about 300%).

    Try converting the .mp3 to a .wav and using that instead.

    I also support the conversion of the MP3 to PCM/WAV 48KHz 16-bit, and Importing that.

     

    As for "covering" you longer Video, well that will depend.

     

    Can you just drag multiple Instances of the Audio, until you have a match for the Video? It might be easier to do this cleanly and smoothly in the audio-editing program used to convert.

     

    As that is a big "stretch" (no pun intended), I doubt that the pitch of that Audio can be maintained with something like the TimeStretch Tool.

     

    Good luck,

    OK, what are the specs of the video files you are using?

    Good.

     

    Did these clips come from a camera?  If so, which make and model?

    That causes a little concern.  Can you find out?
