Hi, further to my message above. I have been reading more on the web and it seems that PP CS3 may have a problem with type 1 avi files.
The footage was captured and is type 1. Does anyone think it will help if we change this to type 2?
Does Vista automatically enable all 3 GB of RAM? Or do you have to manually enable it, like you do in XP by modifying the boot.ini file?
If you have enabled a 3 GB switch in Vista somehow, try disabling it and see if the crashes diminish.
The only other suggestion I have would be to break up your single, large project into multiple, smaller projects.
EDIT: Just saw your update. Yes, changing to type 2 would be the first thing I would try.
I'm having the same problem with Premiere Pro. Here is my system setup:
Core 2 duo at 3 Ghz
External scratch disk
One difference between Carl's and my footage is that I have HDV footage that was captured from the camera using HDV split. The files are .m2t files. Another difference is that mine mostly happens while rendering the video to apply the effects. It hapeens once in a while without rendering.
Is it possible that the .m2t file is the culprite or that HDV split is capturing them with errors?
Any help would be appreciated.
Or the unsupported Vista x64.
I don't think it's Vista x64 because I have been successful in rendering AVI files.
Thanks for your suggestions. I have converted all the tape footage to type 2 using Dvdate. The software was very easy to use and converted the footage without any hassles. Unfortunatly it hasn't resolved the problem.
Also it has caused another interesting problem, Premiere doesn't save the peak files from the new type 2 footage. Each time we open Premiere it will say ' coverting peak file **.avi'. If we let it run so it completes the peak files on all the tapes, when we next open Premiere it starts coverting the peak files again. For some reason it hasn't saved them. This is slowing things down even more. Any suggestions on this?
Jeff we can't really break up the project because of how we have put the project together. There are lots of nested sequences, titles etc that are shared by many of the shows. We can try but it won't reduce the size of the project by that much (but we are willing to try anything).
Any other ideas? We are getting really frustrated by this and our deadline is steadily approaching.
Both of you are using Vista and an external hard drive. It would be easy to install an internal hard drive and move the project files to that. Perhaps that would help. Also, you might try switching to XP. I think that is currently what is recommended as the most stable platform.
Carl, are you using any 3rd party plugins? I am using Neat Video, and I think that might be causing the project to crash. I'm troubleshooting this with the company to see if that is the culprit.
Thanks for your help. No we are not using any third party plugins, at least not for premiere.
And we don't have the option of installing another internal hard drive as we are using a laptop. Xp isn't really an option either.
We degfragged the hard drive and it helped for a while but still crashes. We are just saving every time we make a change to the project and are slowly getting there. Soon we will have the shows fully cut and will split the project into individual shows before we put the commentary and music on. We are hoping by using smaller projects it will be more stable.
Thanks again for your suggestions.
You can view the problem you are experiencing in the Control Panel. Open up "Problem Reports and Solutions." On the left side, click "view problem history." Then find the Premiere error. It should say what is causing the problem. Mine says neat video caused the crash. Hopefully you can pinpoint your probelm.
Thanks for your suggestion. I went to the error report but it doesn't give me any useful information (that I can see). I have searched for dvacore but can not find anything on net.

Dvacore.dll is causing Premiere to crash. I have no idea what it is or what it is linked to. If you can find out, you most likely will have found your problem.
We are having just the same problem for past month:
- we tried almost everything: tried premier pro 1.5, and CS3.
- we reinstalled windowsXP for about 10 times, so now we are using absolutely clean system that is installed on new hard drive (there's only windows on it, premier and necessary drivers )
- we are using fast computer
- we were working with uncompressed video and now we trasnformed it into DV,
Still, nothing really hepled us and it crashes all the time.
anyway, if anybody knows any solutions to frequent crashes of premier pro (1.5 or CS3), please help!
project size now about 260 mb
motherboard - asus P5B,
RAM - corsar ddr2 - 4 GB
processor - core 2 duo 6600 (2*2.4)
video editing card - deckLink extreme
2 raids (each about 2 TB)
Now, even autosave stopped working at all, and pretty often when trying to save the project premier crashes.
Does anyone know how to decrease the size of the project? but we can't break it apart at the moment because we are need occasionally all the sequences that are in the project now...
We would be thankful for any help...
I have the exact same problem!
I´m also on a deadline and experience this precise problem.
CS3, Vista 32, external disk, random crashes (sometimes PPro
just disappears and sometimes you get the message: PPro
has stopped working). Frustrating!
I´m on Multibridge Pro hardware.
Have to resort to my old PPro2 on XP and Aja Xena HS.
Rock solid all the time.
Gotta fix this!
I has problem with CS3
Every time I open any project in Premier it ask for ''Where Is The File dialog box''
So I has to relink media file
I am using xp pro on dual Xeon Quad core system with 4gig or ram on it.
I am using four different sata drive.
C drive is system drive
D drive is Project & scratch
E drive is Capture drive
F drive is Output drive
I did't change any file location
Why is like that?
I am having a similar problem with a five minute video. The error report states dvacore.dll as the faulty module. Running PP CS3 on New Dell with 2 gig of RAM. Any suggestions?
None, apart from asking more details.
I'm having the same problem. Everytime I try to export my work to Encore, I get the 'Adobe Premier Pro has stopped working' message!
The video is nothing flash, it's just a basic AVI, no transitions or effects?
I have been using the Adobe CS3 since end of last year, but have only recently started having this problem
I have 4Gb of RAM, Core 2 Duo processor and Vista Ultimate 32bit.
I'm also a System Builder, so know more than your average user, but I cannot for the life of me figure out this problem? There is no report generated in the 'Problems & Solutions' and the only thing I can think of, is it maybe an update issue, as my system and the way I create the files has not changed, but for some reason, they no longer export?? It's as if the program has just decided "No, I don't want to do that anymore!"
Any help would be greatly apreciated!
> The video is nothing flash, it's just a basic AVI, no transitions or effects?
OK, you say you use a file. But what type of file? You can store a Word document as AVI, an Excel spreadsheet as AVI, etc. What codec is used, what are the project settings and export settings?
It's just a standard video, Thomas the tank engine.. converted to .AVI from a VOB file. (I do VHS to DVD Conversion).
Export Settings are:
PAL, 720x576, 25[fps], Lower, Quality 3.0
48 kHz, 16 bit, PCM
VBR, 1Pass, Min 1.50, Target 4.00, Max 7.00 [Mbps]
I have FFDShow Codecs installed, but have for a long time..
What I can't understand, is why it stops working when I haven't changed the way I create the videos? None of the settings of been changed from what I've always used? Which is why I'm thinking an update may have changed something, but I can't see what??
VOB converted to AVI is not a standard video. How did you convert it? Standard video is captured from DV tape using MS DV AVI type2. Have you checked with GSpot what the codec is? FFDShow has been known to cause trouble.
I've always used FFDShow, without any problems.
I use IMTOO DVD Ripper to convert to DIVX .AVI (It would be easier if Premier Pro was able to import DVDs)
And yes, I checked it with GSpot, and the correct Codecs are installed.
The reason I do this is because it makes it easier to work with, as I record a VHS on to a DVD Recorder, then put it onto the computer to edit.
And as I said, this is always the way I have done it, and has worked fine. I have only had this problem over the past month.
I suggest to not use DivX. It often causes trouble. You may have been lucky in the past, but it seems your luck has run out. PP does not like it. I suggest you look at a converter that converts VOB to MS DV AVI type2. Use Google to find one.
Ok.. I'll give it a try? ...but I'm not convinced! ;-)
Will let you know how I get on.
Ok, no joy! It still keeps crashing with the same message.
But I have just tried it on another PC, which hasn't yet been on the net to recieve updates, and it's working perfect!
Maybe you have some corruption on your system, although with good precautions there is nothing wrong with being on the net. Try CrapCleaner to figure what may be wrong.
Well I tried the Crap Cleaner, and it did get a bit further, but then crashed again! Thinking of re-installing the product, see if that helps!
I have the same problem, APPCS3 crash
when I tried to export to AVI file
either with huffyuv codec or uncompressed.
The 15min clips in the timeline mostly also an
AVI files with huffyuv codec, generated by AfterEffect CS3
and some clips in it's original state which is DV AVI type2,
with project setting from APP default PAL-DV.
I've tried to make a new project, with custom project setting
in desktop mode and video renderer codec huffyuv, no luck.
APP crash only on the huffyuv AVI clips,
if I move the work area bar above the DV clips
it didn't crash, but soon by the time APP need to
render the huffyuv clips. it crash without warning
then close immediately.
I hope somebody can help, as I'm in a deadline by 10th of July.
WinXP - Gigabyte P35 - E4400 - 8500GT - 2 gig RAM - 160gb HD.
anykind of respond will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advanced.
If I understand you correctly, you have only 1 HD. Add at least 2 SATA disks to your system, 1 for media and 1 for projects/scratch.
Thanks for your respond.
I have 2 HD, My media is in the first HD (system),
while media-cache and preview files on the second.
Still no luck...weird problem...:-)
Anyway as I'm run out of time,
I'll render the original state of DV-AVI type 2, clip by clip
on the timeline which either un-touched non filter
or the ones have filters, trans, etc from APCS3 to huffyuv avi.
Copy those files together huffyuv files generated by AE
to my other old computer which has AP65, then
export them as the whole new one huffyuv avi file.
Oh my...I'm going backward / downgrade now...:-)
PS : why insist as a whole new huffyuv avi ?
because the customer demanded it....
it seems he wants duplicate it from the best source.
thanks once again
