CS6 keeps crashing. Worked fine for a year. It's unlinking files - in fact unlinked the entire timeline for a documentary due to show at a film festival in one week. Help! We transferred all the files to a new computer with a new drive and new version of premiere, but it still keeps crashing.. It's telling us "Sorry a serious error has occurred that requires Adobe Premiere Pro to shut down. We will attempt to save your current project." Then it tells us "Adobe Premiere has stopped working. Cose the program and check for a solution online."
We're thinking that we have a corrupt fil, but how do we identify a corrupt file?
Try starting a New (fresh) Project and Import your sequence into it.
If this is Windows (the information you should provide http://forums.adobe.com/message/4200840 when asking a question) you MAY have an outdated graphics adapter driver due to a Windows update that has changed "something" in one or more DLL files
As well as the information in the link I provided, what is your brand/model graphics adapter (ATI or nVidia or ???) and the driver version?
new version of premiere
There have been issues when opening old projects in a new version. It may be better to finish this in the same version if was started in.
