I'm afraid the only suggestion I can think of is to not use SWF files. They're meant for final delivery, not editing. You start with real video, and end up with SWF.
What project settings are you using? Did you change them in any way, or customize them, before you had this problem?
Didn't change any settings. Importing and exporting the files the same dimensions and framerate as they are.
It may be a glitch. I restarted my computer and retryed a few times and it did eventually open back up.
OK -- good -- sometimes glitches happen
I got the same message. And I didn't do anything to the project but edit it, save then reopened it.
Sounds like we officially found a bug.
Okay its working again. After restarting the computer then when I opened the program it prompt me to log into Adobe Cloud. I exited then restarted about 2-3 times the project opened. This needs to be fixed. How do I report a bug?
Now my project is open, at the bottom of the screen it says "All media loaded" but my program monitor has a yellow screen saying "Media Pending". Its been like this for 5 minutes, I tried clicking on the footage, I can hear the audio but not the image. I'm going to do another restart.
I suspect Flash is hanging on your machine & is in turn triggering hangs with the media in your project. A restart will probably put it back on its feet, but I'm not sure why it's periodically dying. Are you using Flash in another application, possibly in a browser? (I noticed you have Firefox running in tandem in your screenshot.)
I really suggest using something other than SWF files as source material. You might want to consider transcoding these files into something more suitable for editing (assuming that you can't get the original camera media).
I've been using Production Premium CS6 since it came out and I am experiencing the same major problems with Premiere Pro. 3 of the projects I was working on in CS5.5 all experience randomly the problems mentioned above. However, I don't use any Flash related material. It's all RED 4K, Canon 5D and HD material.
Projects open work perfectly in CS5.5, but CS6 randomly shows media pending errors and media will not be fully loaded according to the status bar. And sometimes magically it does after a few restarts. I am running a 24 core, 64GB RAM system, so it can't be that.
It's driving me insane actually, since I really need to use SpeedGrade with my material. Please advice.
Thank you in advance,
Premiere CS6 is saying "This project contained a sequence that could not be opened. No sequence preview preset file or codec could be associated with this sequence type. I just received this error message, this morning.
What I found interesting is that no project that I had worked on in CS6 (or their backups) would open (a little scary).
There was a person who previously had a this issue, he created a new project and saved it, and that sequence allowed him to open his other projects.
I followed his suggestion and when I saved the new project, the message screen appeared prompting me to sign into the Cloud.
I was then able to open all my projects. This is an undocumented feature, that I hope will be addressed SOON ! ! ! In my research, it appears that it has been around since May.
Same problem here. My CS6 project could not open anymore. I got the message ""This project contained a sequence that could not be opened. No sequence preview preset file or codec could be associated with this sequence type."
Workaround that worked for me:
- Create a new project
- Create a new sequence
- You get a message that the software is running in trial mode
- Klik on "Register" and sign in with you Adobe ID
- Restart Premiere
- Now my project can open again
Here is the solution. It appears this a Creative Cloud Issue. Very simple fix:
Solution 1: Deactivate, and then reactivate Adobe Premiere Pro
Solution 2: Re-create the Adobe Premiere Pro preferences and plug-in cache
