VBR 2 pass encoding getting stuck at 50% in Premire Pro CS5. I assume this is the starting point of pass #2. The Error message states that one of the temporary files created during first pass cannot be read. I confirmed that said file exists, it is in the correct location and has the correct file name. Interestingly, at times, the 2 pass encoding proceeds through completion without issues, but I haven't been able to identify the reason for this. PLEASE HELP!! Thank you.
