My first thought is that you're exporting with handles and there isn't enogh media for that.
That's a great first thought. The only problem is that there seems to be no option to export without handles. It won't accept 0 as an option and the only other choice is to export the audio clips in their entirety, which is complicated if you are pulling from sources that are huge. It also tells me nothing about what, if anything was exported. Did these clips with insufficient media get exported? Were they dropped from the project? Why is PP CC changing the audio clip names to some insanely long and cryptic series of numbers and letters?? I hate to keep pointing back to FCP but they just seem to get a lot of stuff right that Adobe is still struggling with. It doesn't make sense.
Sorry, I just don't work with OMF often enough to answer those questions.
Have you tried exporting with the full clip? I mean...compared to video files, audio files are very small.
Ya me neither with the OMF files. When I try and export with the whole file it takes a very very long time. I'm pulling from some very large media files, like 2 hour queen programs from live events. It's just frustrating to cut in Premiere and then have to XML back to FCP to ensure I export my OMFs properly. It makes me angry that I'm paying for CC every month when such basic functions are so convoluted. Never had an issue with FCP OMFs. Not once. Same media that is bogging PP down and making all these crazy pop up errrors export perfectly from FCP. And I don't even know if the pop ups are actually errors or just a friendly reminder that the audio clips won't have handles or if the clip itself is just dumped.
Very frightening. I don't do much audio so I can't really test the OMF to see what is happening.
If you don t test it in an OMF workflow..how will you ever know what impact the message is having ..or be able to trouble shoot it?
If I tell you that OMF work for me..what would that mean to you?
Maybe someone else has seen your error message and can advise but often first time errors are OE issues.
That appears to be a render file maybe???
Did you find a solution to this problem? I am having exactly the same problem This is stressing me out as I have to get this OMF file to my sound engineer...
Paul, I have the same problem.
So far no solution to this problem?? You could make the export of OMF?
Has anyone found a solution to this? Also trying to get the OMF to a sound engineer on a deadline. No idea why this is happening.

I finally found a solution to the "insufficient Media" message:
1. You MUST export to OMF using the "separate" option, not "embed", because the "embed" option won't allow for more than 2 gigs of material. I have 18 tracks and a 66 minute film.
2. Do not allow for handles. Copy all the media from each clip.
You may, as in my case, be using a clip from the very 1st frame to the very end, and then you can't have handles.
There was one clip that kept saying insufficient media, even though I followed the above instructions. I reimported that clip and moved it to a different track. Finally, after many trials and errors, I was able to export all my clips. 14 gigs worth.
Clips that have "insufficient media" won't be included in the OMF, so it's pretty important to go to that clip in your timeline and trouble shoot it. maybe there's an unintentional cut and the program will get confused.
If you are not concerned about having handles on the clip that is causing the issue a "Render and Replace" is a quick fix for this.
Thank you for giving me hope as I am having this error message as well, but as stated in the initial post, it is not possible to select "0" or no handle frames. An error message pops up for that as well.
I tried "render and replace" with no luck.
Also, could you clarify what you mean by "moving around tracks?"...I assume you mean just the audio here.
My problem tracks are on A1 and A2, which would seem a stable place. Do you remember where the sweet spot was?
Thanks...HELLO ADOBE this is a problem...

I found an absolute solution to this problem!:)
This message basically means that the clips that got an error are extended on the timeline over their actual length.
It looks like that:
And it may occur if you transfer the project from one computer to another and have to relink media.
I just cut last couple of frames out and the export finished without errors.
Hope I'd helped!
