I've had PP "gather" several VST plug-ins from other programs. Fortunately, in my case things were a lot better. Initially, I only got an error message upon launch to the effect: "Premiere cannot use SampleTank3.dll" for one of them, and similar for the rest. They did not affect the launch, however, and all still load - they are just not usable by PP. After the initial error message, they no longer appear.
Sorry that the Kontakt .dll causes a problem. I have seen articles on the Native Music .dll's causing problems as well.
Thanks for the H/U.
Sony Acid Pro 7 was just introduced. I upgraded to it.
Premiere Pro CS4 has not crashed on the Kontakt 3 VST plugin since the upgrade to Sony Acid Pro 7.
I'm not quite confident that the problem is resolved, but I'm crossing my fingers.
Now that is interesting.
You can change your default vst plugin folder here in registry:
I have sort of a variation of the problem you all have described here.
I'm running Komplete 5 by Native Instruments on a brand new Quad Core laptop that was built and tweaked by a pro audio company that specializes in configuring machines for musicians. The system runs very well.
After installing Adobe CS3 Suite, I noticed that the only program that won't start properly now is Premier Pro. When try to start Premier Pro 3.0, the splash screen opens and I can see the Komplete 5 software programs (Kontakt 3, Massive, Pro 53...) trying to load their .dll files. After a few seconds, Premier Pro quits and gives me a Runtime Error.
I've searched around a little bit and can't even find the .dll's for Komplete 5 to try the suggested experiment of moving them away out of their folder and then to bring them back after (if) I get Premier Pro to start as I have indexing turned off on the drives (which I "think" is to keep the system speedy?) so searching manually has not been easy so far. I looked in the vst folder and they are not there, unless I am missing something.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
For me, somehow the problem suddenly wasn't a problem.
My current version is the 4.01 release of PP CS4. However, the problem disappeared prior to this release.
Hi. Thanks. Fixed it, and here's how.
After searching, I found the Native Instruments folder with the .dlls in it under C:\Program Files\Common Files, and then copied them out to a temp dir, started Premier Pro successfully (I did notice other Komplete 5 .dlls still loading at Premier Pro startup when I tested, but they didnt crash the program and I have no idea where they were being scanned from), closed down Premier, copied the .dll's back to the original location, started Premier again and all is well.
Has anyone had luck with Waves Mercury 1.01 in CS4? I tried several installs using various destination directories including \adobe\common\plug-ins\cs4\mediacore. No go. Would appreciate anyone's direction here. I have Vista x64.
Thanks very much,
Yea, I go the same problem... with premiere cs4 and NI Massive vst. I copied it out from vst folder and Premiere started without problems. Is there any way in Premiere to turn of the plugins that I will never use or cause trouble? I need that plugin in music programs...
Adobe Team, please deal with it!
Every installed program which
work with VST plugins, read registry on startup to see which folder on your computer is default VST plugin folder.
What you have to do is,
1.Find your VST plugin folder
2.Copy dlls which you want to have in Premiere from VST plugin folder to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Pro CS4\Plug-ins\en_US\VSTPlugins
if you have CS4, and dont copy dlls you dont want or which make troubles,
3.Now go to registry and change your default VST folder to, for example C:\Program Files\VSTPlugins
(but that folder must be empty),
4,all your VST PLUGINS DLLs put in, for example C:\Program Files\Steinberg\VstPlugins and set your audio programs to use this vst plugin location.
How to change Default VstPlugin Folder in the registry?
Go to Start/Run and type regedit then hit Enter
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\VST
Modify VSTPluginsPath on the right side to for example C:\Program Files\VSTPlugins
Now when Premiere start it look in C:\Program Files\VSTPlugins and find nothing
then it look in C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Pro CS4\Plug-ins\en_US\VSTPlugins, and find his own plugins and those you copy in step 1.
I attached two registy entries to easy modify registy, just double click,
Of course this is for Windows XP
Tnx guys, I just moved the "massive" vst from system vst catalog to custom vst catalog and showed "abeton live" to look for it from there. Forgot to say that I'm using mac... but seems like it has no point anyway.
