When you choose export>media - the export window opens up, then when you press OK it sends the export instructions to Media Encoder.
You THEN have to go to Media Encoder and press Start Queue. That's when the encoding happens.
It is supposed to launch adobe media encoder after i click ok, but it does not....it just send me back to premiere. How do i launch media encoder?
But it should start automatically - that is correct.
But i don't know why it wouldn't start automatically.
In the meantime, you can open Media Encoder separately and then chose File>Import>Premiere Pro Sequence and then start the queue.
It will not open automatically. I have to manually open media encoder and have it open before i select ok from the export menu, otherwise it will just send data to nothing.
I do get a "there is a update available for media encoder" messege when i select export > media.
However, i have the most recent update already installed.
any way to fix this?
You appear to have a corrupt installation. A repair install might work, but most likely a full uninstall, running the CS4 cleanup script and a full reinstall will be required.
Where can one find this clean up script?
I just tried doing the above (uninstalling and running the cleanup utility, and now I can't setup the production suite anymore! This is very frustrating. I pay for this program, have a ton of work to do, and now i can't re-install it?????!!!
It says "setup has encountered an error, please contact adoabe for support"
I can not afford to re-install my OS as I am working on a feature film and can't afford to lose anything.
Can anyone help?
This: "setup has encountered an error, please contact adoabe for support"
I finally re-installed everything and media encoder still does not work correctly. I've tried just about everything but re-install windows to resolve this issue. Media encoder will not open automatically for me after i export media. I always have to manually open it while i'm exporting which is very frustrating considering the program just does not work like it should. I've watched a couple training videos to validate this.
Is there a fix for this
Well... seems I am not the only one. My system was working perfectly with Adobe Premiere pro 2.0 ... after installing Cs4 adobe media encoder just hangs there in the middle of an export. It´s very frustrating spending hours to figure out an annoying bug in something that simple that should work.... more than U$S 2000 spend in Production Suite...
I finally found a workaround for this problem, and I hope it can help to others. Adobe Media Encoder CS4 hangs when in Premiere timeline are empty spaces (meaning no media at all)
In previous version of Premiere this was normal when I wanted black video to just leave it empty but now it just freezes AME.
The problem is gone when I put a blank title or a black quicktime on the timeline (honestly I did´nt tried Premiere´s own "black video".
This is definitely a bug, because a warning should appear prior to render or would be nice for Premiere to treat this empty spaces as black (just like in Premiere Pro 2.0)
> In previous version of Premiere this was normal when I wanted black video to just leave it empty but now it just freezes AME.
This was also the case in CS3.
Hello! Then i choose StartQueue AME think ~5-6 minutes, than start encoding normally. It`s happens only then i import PremierePro Sequence.
Premiere4.0.1 AME 4.0.2
Same happens with with PP & AME 4.1 too...
Anybody had such this? Can help?
P.S. Sorry for my english
When you export from PrCS4, a copy of your Pr project is created in a
temporary folder. The AME has to load the project copy completely
before it can begin encoding.
Using a project copy in the AME allows you to return to Pr and keep
working while the AME encodes your file. You couldn't do that if the
project that was open in Pr was also used in the AME during export.
Well... Thanks. But 5-6 minuts? It`s very long... I creat very simple project and try to export. Result the same... May be exists another reason?
Then the only other reason is a bottleneck in your system somewhere.
Please give details about your system and about your "simple" project.
Core2Duo E8400, 8gb ram DDR II 800Mh, GTX260, 3HDD SATA(project, media cash, source files - all on different HDD)
Windows Vista Ultimate x64. UAC - disabled. Antivirus unloaded...
DV-Pal standart. Improted one file - DV 62 minuts. No effects, no montage. Just one timeline, with one file.
There is one thing - Premiere CS3 was first installed on my system. And now set. Maybe problem in this? I cant uninstall him because with him work MainConcept Mpeg Pro HD(with smart render). It`s very in-use on my work...
Sorry again for my english. It`s inexcusable....
Thanks for the details. Your English is fine - no worries.
Pr CS3 and Pr CS4 on the same system should be OK.
The AME takes longer to open a project than Pr does, but it shouldn't
take that long. Try clearing out your Windows temporary files, as well
as the media cache database in Pr (Edit>Preferences>Media>Clean). Then
reboot your computer. See if AME performance improves.
Your English is fine - no worries
Yea! With my translator...
OK! I did all that you offered. Clear my Win temp-folder. Clean media in Premiere. Reboot my system. And try to export my project again. Went out as before...
I looked that takes place in task manager. And found out one conformity to law. Then i press StartQueue, process PProHeadless.exe uses ~20-30% from cpu. As soon as this usage falls to 2-5%, encoding begins in the normal mode.
Maybe it will suggest you some idea?
PProHeadless is the process that the AME uses to communicate with
Premiere so that the Premiere project can be loaded and encoded.
I don't know of any way to speed up this communication - sorry.
I found one piece. This process (pproheadless.exe), creates a lot of files in a directory of "Adobe Premiere Pro Preview Files", is available for all files in the project. Ie if I'm importing one-hour video, but want to make export 2-3 minutes, preview created for the entire video (the size is very impressive). So it should be?
In AME "Use preview files" dissabled...
I too came acrosss this same problem and no matter what i tried it didnt work, i remember in a earlier version of premier i came acroos a problem similar to this as well.
Well here is what i think causes it, i think it first has to do with all your temp files of that project, somewhere somehow it gets corrected, though it may seem to run properly in premier but trying to convert you get an error or even a premier crash.
Solution: Start a new project with a differentm basicly you need to start all over again, i found when i did this the problem seemed to have disappeared, yeas i know all your lovely work and and mavelious effect and your bells and wistles are gone!! but it sure beats the headache of this annoying error.
Try this, and see if it works
I do not understand completly. I must create a new project, then open the problematic project?
Forget about the problematic project, start from scratch!!
I think I realized what was happening. Such a long pause occurs if the original DV video, recorded sound at 32 kHz. AME, before start re-encoding, converts audio only at 48 kHz. I learned it through the CS5 (in this version on the progress bar displays information about the action going on)
I honestly do not quite understand why re-encode the audio, then again if it needs to be recoded anyway????....
