      I was having problems exporting (two slow, bad exports with glitches, video bites, black video and the computer frizzed in the process) a final edit project via Premier Pro CC. Digging up in Premier forums, I read a post that suggested to open a new project in PP CC and pasted in a new sequence if you where having problems editing a PP CS6 project in PP CC. So I did.


      The weird thing is that suddenly when I was in the process of selecting the settings in the direct export settings window, the computer frizzed and restarted. This is the second time it happens in the last 10 min with me in the process of selecting the settings specifically when I was scrubbing the video preview window (there where visible glitches) to check the final aspect ratio. And a third one when I was in the middle of posting this thread in the forums and at the same time scrubbing the timeline and taking screen grabs of the glitches of video images on the viewer monitor:

      At the time, no other app was running, just safari with adobe forums. When it came back from the restart, PP was already open

      and therefore it didn't offer the option to send a crash report to Adobe though there was a apple crash report window:

      Here is a successful output with glitches:

      Has someone experienced the same?

      Btw, exporting time of this sequence project(1min and 13 sec long) was aprox 24 to 45min, depending on the codec and specs selected. Why it take so long to export anything in Premier Pro? This is my experience with all my projects.
