The red bar doesn't turn green because the clips underneath haven't actually been rendered yet. The clips without either a red or a green bar don't need rendering.
Thanks for your reply.
I currently have about 12,000 frames in my timeline. When I go to render, I have noticed that the progress bar indicates that all frames and clips are sucessfully rendered, but the red bar still doesn't turn green.
Does it matter anyways, i.e., will the footage when exported be of poorer quality?
Rendering is for previews and has no bearing on the quality of exports/encodes.

Rendering typically affects only those clips under the Work Area Bar. It's entirely possible to have clips outside the WAB that will not get rendered. The progress bar doesn't show all clips, only those clips selected for rendering by adjusting the WAB.
When I render the work area, the red bar on one clip turns green. Then I save the project and close it. Upon opening the project within a few minutes it returns to red?
It sounds like PrPro is loosing the link to your Render files. Is it asking for their location, when you Open the Project?
Thanks for the interest but no it doesn't ask for the location. But every time I reopen the project one clip need to be rendered again. I'll rebuild it and see if I can get it to work.
I had the same problem.
I cured it by uninstalling Pro then reinstalling it.
I have the same problem - and some others with Creative Suite CS4 Production Premium.
Uninstalling and re-installaing did not solve the problem.
One buys an expensive piece of software expecting it to work. But it seems to have quite a number of bugs.
Nevertheless what must I do to have the render bar in green after saving the project and reopening it again?
