CS4 works differently than previous version. One key difference is that the sequence is written to a new file just before export so that you can continue to work on that same sequence while it's being exported. I suppose you'd need to make sure that the sequence can be written and read from.
One issue might be that this project uses mjeg hd footage from a Nikon D90 camera. I might be having some codec issues with media encoder in Premiere Pro CS4. But when I import the project into AE I can render the project to Quicktime Animation codec (which is what I was trying to do in Premiere.)
Well, there's two things I can see as problematic. Using a still camera to shoot video, as you suspected, and exporting to Quicktime Animation, which I believe is currently broken through Premiere.
If it works via AE, go with that.
Null pict errors? Any chance you've got Magic Bullet Suite installed? I had to remove Colorista because it was causing a null pict error with the media encoder and locking it up. Once I got rid of Colorista the problem went away and the AME worked fine. The other MB apps didn't cause any problems.
Yes I did remove Colorista but I still have problems exporting. Another 1080i HDV project will not export thru AME to quicktime animation. I also tried .h264 but no luck. The AME que never stops estimating how long the project will take -- just spins away, no error, just nothing.
I also have magic bullet looks in the project, but that has to stay, I can't finish this project without it.
Also no luck importing in AE this time. The titles where not rendered.
I used dynamic link inside the premiere pro project to go to Encore and I was able to transcode and make a working DVD.
But I really need HD output! From Premiere!
Hopefully I'm not telling you how to suck eggs here, but I think you should really verify that you actually have removed Colorista. If you installed it for AE (or any other CS4 app) it is placed in a common folder and will continue to screw up the AME. It would be in:
If it's there you should delete the Colorista folder. Failing that I'd start deleting other 3rd party plugins one at a time and check each time if it is the source of your null pict error.
Thanks. Yes I double checked the directory. I ended up copying the entire sequence into a new PP CS4 1080i HDV project and now I have no audio. Time for another reboot. Also PP CS3 will no longer start!
