Is Soundflower installed on your system? It has known crashing conflicts with Soundbooth, so those may spill over to Premiere as well.
I've not heard of the program that Jeff asked about, but iSight (there are two - one free and one for pay), that uses the Web-cam, whether built-in, or add-on, has been known to cause issues for PrPro. Most were with regards to Capturing from a FW attached camera, but there were others, as well.
Hi Jeff, Hi Hunt,
thank you for your replies.
The program Jeff talks about (Soundflower) is not installed on my machine, but since I use an 24" iMac, it comes with a built-in iSight camera. However, it didn't cause any problems with Premiere Pro so far. Everything worked well.
When I use the audio and video hardware with other applications (other than Premiere Pro and Soundbooth) eveything still works fine.
What's a little bit strange to me is, that even a reinstallation of the software (Premiere Pro) didn't fix my issues.
I'm using PPro on my Mac and I don't have the file that is causing you problems. My file structure also looks completely different, with different names for folders. Odd. Are you using any 3rd party plugins?
no, it's not a Beta, it's the full version of PPro as it comes bundled within my Master's Collection of CS4. And I'm not using any 3rd party plugins either.
I don't think that the file is present on our machines, Bob. The file extension ".cpp" seems to me like a reference to the source code file (written in the programming language C++, since this is what "cpp" stands for). I have a programming background, and therefore I think, the error message isn't meant to be useful for the end user (like us) but for the engineers while they're developing.
But today, I could narrow down my problem a bit. The playback is working again: the problems were caused by some messed up audio *output* settings. I think, PPro messed them up when it crashed several times. I reset them all and now the playback works fine again.
However, I still can't record: neither with Soundbooth CS4 nor with PPro. The software won't recognize my *input* settings. The error message I gave in my previous post still occurs as soon as I press the little microphone button in PPro's Audio Mixer. And Soundbooth just does *nothing* at all when I try to record. But every other tool (iMovie, Audacity) works fine with my Mac.
As a workaround, I record my audio with Audacity, import the file to PPro and be up and running. But if somebody of you has faced similar problems, I would appreciate your solutions.
Regards and Thank you
I was about to ask about your Audio Hardware settings, but you beat me to it.
Now, as for your mic, my guess would be that there is a mismatch there, as well. Not being a Mac-guy, you probably have ASIO Input & Output settings that will be Greek to me. Still, if you list them, then maybe a Mac-person will recognize a problem.
Just wanted to say that I was having the same issue. No video playback whatsoever, timecode didn't move although the playback icon showed an arrow not the square. I altered my Audio Hardware / Output preferences, saved them, then changed them back to what they were in the first place, and everything started working normally (although I haven't attamepted any capturing at all yet).
i seem to be having a similar problem running PPro in a similar environment except i have imported a file from photoboth and the file will not play in Ppro maybe a split second i followed the advice about changing hardwear settings and got an error message "/randal/MediaCore/MediaLayer/AudoioSupport/Make/mac/../..Srcmac/CoreAudioHost.cpp-536" same error different line i think any suggestions
Hate to bump an old thread, but I'm new to Pr and am also experiencing the same problem and was wondering if anyone had any solutions?
i never did find a solution and i did try there is another thread which i started were some more experience then me tried to offer some advice but in the end i just reinstalled the whole creative package as just isolating the problem programmes them being premier and sound booth didn't work i didn't uninstall first just wrote over the top not had the problem since
hope this helps still would like to know what it was and why it happened so i can avoid it in future
may I suggest looking in this thread: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/565659?tstart=0
There are now a number of us reporting these playback problems, both on Mac and Windows based systems.
I posted a screenshot as well as a screen capture of the issues I am experiencing - try checking them to see if you are having the same thing.
I feel your frustration.
