I've seen this posted as a known bug in Premiere, but I haven't found a decent solution to it. Here's a screen cap of what it looks like:
Notice the pink verticle line on the right side of the frame. This happens when I'm exporting it out of the timeline to another format - it doesn't look like this in the timeline. I have done a few tests and it seems to only do this when:
A) it's fading from black or to black - cross-dissolving from one video to another doesn't do it
B) the output video is in widescreen 16:9
It doesn't happen when I'm creating an HD video and it doesn't happen when it's an SD video in "D1/DV NTSC (0.9091)" aspect.
Haven't had that exact problem with pink line, but have solved similar problems by making sure I put a few seconds of black video on the front and back ends of my media timeline work area before exporting.
I have the same problem. Pink line (4 pixels wide).
I'm also using widescreen HD footage and resizing it down. In my case to 460 by 258.
All looks fine during preview, but the final render comes out with a 4 pixels wide line pink lines on the right side during transitions.
My background is white, so it can blend in to the web page where I'm placing the video, and I have a white matte as my video 1 layer. I tried scaling the matte to 120% of the video's size, but that made no difference.
Anyone got any ideas?
I just fixed the problem by altering the resized dimensions.
My dimensions used to be 460 by 258 and my original footage is 1920 by 1080. The reduction factor to get from 1920 to 460 is 4.1739, which would make the height actually 258.75 pixels.
So I decided to try a reduction factor of 4, which gets me a reduced size of 480 by 270.
Using these dimensions, everything renders fine with no pink lines on the right.
I have seen this before also, you can file a bugreport if you like.
PROBLEM: Everytime I used a cross dissolve on this particular Premiere Pro (PR) project, a pink bar on the right side of the screen appeared. I started off with HD footage and ended up working in a rather odd frame size of 566 X 318 (16:9 square pixels). I doubt the problem was related to scaling down the HD video footage however, because as you can see from my screnshot, the problem existed even with graphics and animations. I saw the problem in my timeline, but assumed it would go away after the final render. No such luck.
SOLUTION: Good old After Effects (AE) to the rescue. I imported my PR sequence into AE and rendered that comp using the Adobe Media Encoder (AME). I try to always end with exporting from AME because of the two pass encoding option that AE does not provide (If this isn't important to you, just skip this last step). In the end, a rather annoying, silly and inconveniet work-around to eliminate a known bug. These kinds of odd, quirky and unpredictable glitches are making my hair turn gray!
Has anyone come up with a workable solution to this? I'm getting the same thing with a dissolve when I export, and I cannot figure out how to get rid of it. I've tried exporting various sizes of the clip, nothing works. This is really unacceptable from Adobe.
For what it's worth, I've discovered (after hours of playing around with settings) that when you're using dissolves in video, for some reason setting the Source Scaling option in the encoder to "Scale to Fill" seems to work.
If your Source Scaling says "Scale to Fit", try changing this option and it should work.
I tested this using .mp4/h.264 encoding, 856x480, baseline profile. It works in Premiere's media encoder. If I try to take the sequence into AME separately, it doesn't. I don't know why.
I found a fix for this by exporting the areas where I had fades into a different file type -- in my case, it was an 1080 HD project, so I think I exported HD DPX video files -- and then I dropped those exported files into the timeline over the problem areas. Kind of a pain, of course, but it only took me maybe an hour to do all of the fade-to-black and fade-from-black areas. I'm currently doing a 5K project in Premiere and I haven't noticed this problem there.
Yes! Yet again, I trusted Adobe Media Encoder to export 856x480 .mp4/h.264, and yet again, pink line during dissolves. If I export directly within Premiere, I have no problems.
This is flat out unacceptable. The point of AME is to allow me to export multiple versions of a project at once. If I can't use this, the product isn't saving me any time.
Now I have to export 1280x720, take that into QuickTime Pro, and export 856x480.
Get it together and fix, Adobe!
Does anyone have the ear of someone at the company that we can pester for a fix? This is silly...
Just popped here after encountering the same problem for the first time (was so embarrassed when I presented a rough-cut to the client and noticed it). Has anyone reported this to Adobe, strange the first post was 2011 and we are still facing this bug in 2013. Is it me or is Adobe slipping up?
I have the same problem. I have a client that wants a 710x400 size from 1080HD video. I found a workaround though. Instead of using a transition, I just keyframed the opacity of the clip. Pink line gone.
try this, select your format and preset.... then select Scale to Fill -- and then select checkbox Render at Maximum Depth...
I think some of the solutions here are workarounds and just patches the problem, but not a real fix
let me know if that works for you -- or for anyone in here.
