Error Compiling Movie... some past discussions and ideas
May be caused by . in name https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2166620
-1st, create a new project and import the project that has errors and see if that fixes the problem
-and a long discussion https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1240823
Thank you, but unfortunately none of those worked...there wasn't a . in the name to begin with, I can't seem to import an Elements project into another one at all, and none of the other solutions have worked so far...
Have you got Quicktime 7's components installed, per the program requirements?
Have you tried downloading the free trial of version 15, just to see if it duplicates or resolves the problem?
I had to install QuickTime to fix another issue (a crash on startup). Haven't tried 15 yet...I'll download the trial and take a shot with it later tonight, then report back!
Well, it took me a little longer than I'd hoped to try it out...I had another, unrelated hardware issue come up and focused on fixing that first.
Now that that's done, I've installed the trial and attempted to export the project with it. The result? Success, surprisingly...it renders without any issues at all in 15. Very strange...
I suppose I should just upgrade at this point?
Sounds like the easiest solution.
