That usually means some external process or security setting is blocking the required components, so turn off your Virus scanner and firewall and make sure that e.g. Adobe Media Encoder is actually installed correctly.
Hi Mylenium, thank you for your reply, I think the problem may be in Adobe Media Encoder - I get this message - Adobe Media Encoder CC 7.2 Update
Installation failed. Error Code: U44M2P7
I sometimes get this problem then if I kill Photoshop and try again everything goes smoothly and it renders. There is something wrong in Photoshop video rendering module - when it fails it seems to get in an endless goto loop or so I guess as it is only using one of the eight cores and hyperthreads available to it, when working properly it uses all eight. Exactly the same file with exactly the same edits hang without even getting to the stage you illustrate, hang as you illustrate, open the render box and then hang rendering or renders the video perfectly. Something needs investigating by Adobe.
I'm on mac and have experienced the dreaded Photoshop CS6 'Initializing Video Export" problem when it stops/stalls. Very frustrating.
I upgraded my operating software to OS X Yosemite and also my Font management software (Suitcase Fusion 6) and the issue disappeared. I have no firewalls – just a home computer. Good luck.
This is happening to me as well in just installed updated adobe cc suite.
Some times it works and some times it is stuck like that.
Any one has any solution to it?
In my case, it always stuck. I cannot "render video" at all - Photoshop just freezes. That is why I am trying to find a way to convert image sequence to any video format.

I am just facing a problem in photoshop when I try to render a video a pop-up window come up and it says exporting image sequences but I have actually created a video timeline. I am facing this problem from the start.
my photoshop version is Cc 2017.
Hey Nicholas and everyone,
Initially I had the same issue on my Mac when I updated to MacOS High Sierra.
Windows version works fine.
So after some digging I found one solution.
Create a new Mac User account under System Preferences.
If I find any more solution I'll try to post it here.
So I would have to do all video rendering in another account on my Mac for this feature? Why would this be? It's not plausible for the workflow to have another user account for rendering video. What problem is solved when we open up a new profile that cannot be solved under the initial user account?
Thanks for the response.

Some of this things should work.
