    Error Compiling when using RGB Color Corrector and Unsharp Mask

    cletusk

      If I apply the RGB Color Corrector and and Unsharp mask to a clip within a sequence and try to render the sequence or a small portion of the work area I get the Error Compiling: Unknown error.

       

      This is occurring within a project I have updated to Premiere CS6 from Premiere CS5. 

       

      I have tried creating a new sequence and importing the same clip and other clips.  Anytime I try to use both the Unsharp Mask and RGB Color Corrector I am unable to render.  I have tried this with Mercury Playback both in hardware and software modes with the same result.

       

      Has anyone else seen something like this?

          Also I do not receive this error when using the fast color corrector or three way color corrector simultaneously with an Unsharp Mask.

            Try switching order of the effects in the Effect Controls Panel or add one effect, nest and add second effect.

            See if that will help.

              I am seeing an issue here with RGB on top.  Try placing the Unsharp Mask on top in the ECP.

                Okay, glad this occurs for others too and I am not experiencing something isolated. The issue here is this shouldn't be happening at all. 

                 

                Premiere CS5 has no problem with this.

                 

                Yeah if I turn off one effect or the other no problem.  Unfortunately it doesn't matter the order I place the effects in I get the same error regardless of which is placed first.

                 

                Nesting does work.  If I create a sequence, apply one or the other to the clip in the sequence then embed the sequence in another sequence and apply the remaining filter to the sequence containing the clip then I can get my color correction and edge definition.  But this is a work around. 

                 

                There seems to a bug here since there were no issues when using RGB Color Corrector and Unsharp Mask simultaneously applied to one clip in CS5.  I doubt there will be a fix for this anytime soon so it looks like I will have to use another method for color correcting or apply RGB color correction to clips already embedded in a sequence as I move forward into solely using CS6.

                 

                (How this can become an issue is that after applying effects and color correction to several clips within a sequence I like to render that entire sequence.  Then this sequence is ebedded in another main sequence and I can add additional effects and transitions and overlays without killing the live playback speed and only have to render smaller amounts of content from additional tracks.  It ends up saving a lot of time after the initial length of rendering.)

                 

                Thanks for the suggestions.
