Like I wrote in the post:
"Running a New computer with a clean install of Windows 7 64 bit and Adobe CS4 Master Suite
Dell Precision M6400
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T9900 @ 3.06 Ghz, 3.07 Ghz
12.0 GB Ram"
Like I asked and you did not answer, 4.0, 4.1, 4.2, 4.2.1? I guess it makes no difference since you have no disks, at least you did not answer the question about disk setup either. No information about your media, or the codec, or the sequence settings, a lot of lacking information.
Do your PPS files open correctly or XLSM files?
Wow, sorry, forgive me if I've seen most forums work with a lot less, and your dismissiveness led me to assume you hadn't read my post.
All of this is new and up do date as far as Adobe and Windows updates go, that's Version 4.2.1.
My projects for this are all in NTSC Widescreen DV 24P, the particular sequence that I render from is in that format as well, although regardless of which one I use the problem keeps occurring.
My renders for my recent purposes have been compressed in .h264, IPOD video Large. The codec I'm rendering in also doesn't seem to matter, because I've tried this in .avi., .mov, .h264, .wav, etc. and all with various settings that I thought might help, but the encoder quits encoding 4 seconds in and gives me the error that it can't find the media.
And I didn't mention the media type and what not because it seems irrelevent of what I use this problem keeps happening. I'm pretty sure it's a problem with the project file or perhaps the media encoder or both.
And I don't know what you mean by "disks"
Do I have a Raid set up on my hard disk? No, I have two 0.5 TB hard drives, Programs on one (C:\) Projects on the other (D:\).
What address am I saving the scratch disks to? I use the default of "same as Project". Have I tried Clearing it? Yes.
I don't think I'm getting at what you're asking.
And I don't think I've ever used an .xlsm (which is excel?) file and I've definitely never used a Power point project (PPS?) file in my projects. And they open in their respective programs, although I'm not sure why you asked about that. Again I'm not sure I know what you mean.
The Premiere Project (.prproj) file is what I'm trying to open when the progress bar stops at 2/3 the way through and forces me to terminate the process with the task manager to close it.
It would help to mention that all my projects are animated and I use premiere to cobble them together, so no problems that relate to transferring media from a camera to the computer would apply here. Most of the files I get out of Maya are in Default .avi or .mov files, and I also use a handful of .wav files for the dialogue and .jpgs for cards and placeholders.
I believe that this problem began when I updated a few of the files in my project, but I've been doing that for weeks without incident. I've been updating them by saving over the old media file with the updated one of the same name, length, and type.
I don't work exclusively with Premiere, in fact it's not what I usually use, that would be Final Cut Pro.
If you have a PRPROJ file, that is not Opening in PrPro, the next test is to see if you can Import that Project, into another. Just do New Project, and choose Import Project. That usually works.
Thank you for your responses, I haven't tried that actually. Sorry I'm in deep in another project and I'll get back to this problem probably by tomorrow and try your advice. I'll let you know how it goes.
Thanks again for your help.
