            You're right. Just tried on a remote pc, everything is fine. Something wrong in the sequence, lots of edits are there, will try to find out the reason it crashes.

              New Project, Bars and Tone Clip, Constant Power Transition --> Lift/Extract operation --> Crash in certain circumstance.

              It depends on Transition Duration and Position.


              This bug cannot be easily reproduced, but it exists in each Premiere Pro instance, each editor have a chance to experience this crash after performing a Lift/Extract function. I had to 3 times recover an auto-saved version of a latest project.



              as you can see, Transition Duration is 1:09, Start 5:19, End 7:02, Sequence Selection is 1:01

              just download the project


              open or import it and press Lift/Extract

                It's interesting that after reopening the project and performing lift/extract there was everything fine.

                So I went to dig deeper

                It's not only about Transition Duration/Alighnment.

                It's also not depends on whether you will press Lift/Extract Button in the Monitor Panel or use a HotKey, crash may happen in both cases.

                So, after reopening a project - no crash, but after performing the operation multiple times - the crash will occur. Strange, huh?



                It's an easily reproducable bug on my PC, but I don't see a way to define some concrete pattern to invoke it.

                I just have projects with a ready setup to just perform Lift/Extract a few times and obtain a crash.


                This crash occured 2 times in an hour and I'm so tired of this, khm.

                The Auto-Save feature is also not reliable, it is set to auto-save every 1 minutes, but sometimes I loose up to 5-10 minutes of work.

                I experienced this bug before - in CS5 (but there it was contstant, easily reproducable), then it was fixed in CS5.5 and now in CS6 it's back.


                Just tried on a remote PC to reproduce the bug, no luck, there's everything fine - I am in a trouble.


                Renamed the folders:

                • c:\Users\USER\Application Data\Adobe\Premiere Pro\6.0\
                • c:\Users\USER\Documents\Adobe\Premiere Pro\6.0\
                • c:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\Plug-ins\CS6\

                thus removing all of the Preferences and Plug-ins, and I was surprized with inability to reproduce the bug too. But only at first attempt, after repeating the operation much more times (10-20 times) the Crash is Back.

                Digging deeper?

                Removed again all the preferences folders and created a New Project, Imported there the Project with a reproducable on my pc bug, set Mercury Playback to Software and BANG! The Crash is there.


                Decided to open the project on a remote  PC again and try to perform the operation also multiple 10-20 times and BANG! The Crash is there.


                So, it IS reproducable! I can reproduce it on any PC. You can too, if you try.

                It's not persistent, but sometimes it's very unexpected.
