Any effects on those clips? Is it RED media that goes missing, QuickTime, or both?
It's mostly RED footage that goes missing. In other words, after the first empty folder appears, no further RED footage is converted but the occasional island of non-RED footage is still converted later in the timeline.
There may be some effects - I just tried a batch removal of effects and am trying the export again.
There are many, many resizes and repos.
I removed all effects (but left motion in) and the same problem occurred - RED footage has empty dpx folders at exactly the same place.
Any help is appreciated.
As a test, try removing the Motion effects. Report back the results.
Just "Sent to Speedgrade" with the motion all removed. Same empty folders.
So now I think it's not a speedgrade issue but a premiere issue related to my footage. I tried outputting a normal dpx sequence from the timeline and the render halted at the same place with an "Unknown Error"
This is also the same place where an internal timeline renter halts with th same "unknown error"
Do you know what may cause this? If I solve this I'll probably solve the speedgrade problem.
It's looking like you may have a corrupt sequence, or worse, some corrupt media.
Yup. Thanks for all of your help.
I found three clips that were bad. The sucky part is that "Send to Adobe Speedgrade" won't skip over the bad clips and encode the good clips. Instead, for some reason, when it encounters its first bad clip it internally aborts writing dpx's for the rest of the sequence (but only for RED footage, oddly). And it gives no error message etc.
Given the repeatability of this I would call it a bug.
