We've been using Premiere since 5.0 - then 5.5 and now 6.0 - and recently, we've noticed that our projects forgets the rendering every time they're re-loaded.
If I open a project, render the timeline and saves, it's not rendered when opening the project again.
I'm 100% sure that this was not the case in 5.0 and 5.5
Also, it seems like the project recreates peak files every time we open - again, 100% not the case earlier on.
Here's our setup:
OS: Mountain Lion 10.8.2
CS: Premiere pro 6.0.2
Project settings => scratch: video and audio is same as project and video/audio previews are on an internal disk for itself.
Preferences => media: Media cache files and media cache database are on an internal disk for itself.
Can someone please tell us if we can fix this - if it's a bug or if we're simply not operating cs6 the right way?
We were getting the regeneration of peak files each time a project is loaded, but found that ticking "save media cache next to originals" fixed the issue.
My co-worker was having the issue you described with render files, but found that the render files were the very last thing that loaded when the project was opened, and if he waited a few minutes they would suddenly pop up. I wonder if the fact that it's not finding the peak files is causing it to not move on to the next stage and find the render files?
We're on macs as well.
Adobe seems to be aware of the issue and is looking into it.
