I have a trial version of Adobe Premiere Pro CS5. I am making a Call of Duty montage, have multiple clips in a 2 minute 24 second video that I am still working on, along with music. I was editing today and I exported it to my desktop in a Media format, and it worked fine. The size was about 950 MB and the video length was still 2:24, which is perfect. After I had edited for a little longer, the video was about 3 minutes 20 seconds. My friend wanted to see how it was coming along, so I exported it for him. But this time, it exported at a size of 33.9 MB and a lenght of 0 minutes 9 seconds. This was in AVI format and I tried multiple formats, but it would ALWAYS export 33.9 MB out. When I go back to the raw un-exported CS5 file, it shows the original 3 minutes 30 seconds. Does anybody have any suggestions or the same problem? Help is appreciated, thank you.
First guess would be that you have moved the WAB (Work Area Bar), and that it is no longer covering the full Duration. Here is a look at the WAB from PrPro 2.0, but it should look and behave just the same in CS5:
I find it very easy to hit the \ (Backslash) key, to zoom the entire Timeline into view, and then Dbl-click on the little "knurled" square in the middle of the WAB.
If it's not an issue with the WAB, please tell us the full details of your Project, and especially the Export settings.
I tried what you said, and it worked. Thank you very much for solving the issue.
You are most welcome.
Thanks for reporting your success and good luck,
