I need some help please with the Premiere Pro CS5 Trial version. I have been working on a project file for the last couple of weeks and getting to grips with the program. I have an 11min video made up of many clips. I already rendered most of it but aded some more clips. This time when I clicked render, it got to nearly 50% then stalled. I tried to cancel but had to force quit in Mac OS because it stopped responding. Could the file have been corrupted...
When I now try to reopen the file it gives me this message:
This project contained a sequence that could not be opened. No sequence preview preset file or codec could be associated with this sequence type.
What do I do now? I need to deliver the video by the end of the week.
I had a search and all I could find was that certain codecs have not been included in the trial version but I don't know for sure if this is the problem. I was working with HD video files that had already been converted to .mov files. I was able to render my video clips like this and then I added video which was shot on a non HD video camera. Could Premiere have had a problem working with the two? I also added a a number of transitions and effects.
Does anybody know how I can access my project? If I am now forced into buying the full product when I still have 10 days left of my trial, how do I know the full version will be able to open up my project file?
Any help / expertise will be greatly appreciated.
Trial versions of programs often disable certain abilities ....or else they might as well just give the program away...
I would do a search on your source material and the trial version of CS5.. ?
To everyone who has had this problem, I found a solution posted elsewhere. Initially I tried editing the xml of the project file in Dreamweaver based on another post but that didn't work. However, all you need to do is create a NEW project. Then go to file and choose Import...
Then you can choose to import selected sequences from a project file which is what I did. I suspect one of my sequences was causing the problem but I don't know. I also read somewhere else that Premiere sometimes has a problem with blank gaps when rendering.
Anyway, after a few hours of panic, I'm now back on track and making sure I save many versions just in case!
