    Why won't Premiere/Media Encoder export FLV?

    jamcclure Level 1

      I seem to be unable to export to Flash Video under any circumstances. The result is the same regardless of what type of video I try to export: I have tried SD DV and HDV (more details below). In any case, the result is the same: AME loads, I click Start Queue, and it hangs with no progress in the conversion. When I check processes I see PPProHeadless, Import* and processcoordinationserver with no CPU utilization, and no progress in the output file. I end up having to end the AME application. I am able to export other types of video (MPEG-2, AVI, etc.) without a problem.

       

      Here is some more detailed information:

       

      The source video for one case was HDV 1440x1080 60i MPEG-2, and in the other case, a 720x480 SD DV AVI. I am outputting about 60 seconds of material, so I would not expect the process to take long. I have allowed AME to run for 15 minutes uninterrupted and there is no progress. When I Stop Queue and ask it to stop the current conversion, I get a hard hang and have to use TM to end the process. I have tried this process for all of the existing Flash Video export presets- none work. There is nothing interesting in the AME log (just a start queue description, which I'm appending to the end of this message).
