    PRE 8.0.1 "Rendering Required Files" then aborts

    dennisbthomas Level 1

      I have a project that was working several weeks ago but today I tried to play it on the timeline and I get the message

      "Rendering Required Files" then it aborted.

      I have tried the following with out success and the same message and abort:

      1. Cleared the Media Database: EDIT/PREFERENCES/MEDIA

      2. Deleted Rendered Files for all Projects: TIMELINE/DELETE RENDERED FILES FOR ALL PROJECTS. I did this because the DELETE RENDERED FILES was greyed out.

      3. Inserted a short clip near the front of the project, so that when I did a full render there were 3 files to render not 1.

      4. Did a full render.

       

      I have Windows 7 (64bit) with an Intel I3-540 using the onboard video. All Windows 7, drivers and PRE 8 are up-to-date.

       

      Does anyone have a clue as to what else I should try? Very frustrating as everything was running so well the last week or so.

       

      Thanks

          I forgot to say that after the full render, when I opened the project two of the three files indicated that they needed to be rendered. The clip that I inserted indicated that it was already rendered.

           

          I move the CTI to the middle of the 2nd clip that was rendered but the "Rendering Required Files" message occurred and

          then the abort.

           

          Thanks

            What kind of camcorder is your video coming from and how did you get it into your comptuer?

             

            What settings are you using for your Premiere Elements project?

             

            Have you gone to Windows Update and manually downloaded even the non-critical updates, and have you gone to Apple.com and downloaded the latest version of Quicktime?

             

            Have you cleared the temp files off your computer and done a thorough defragmentation of your drive(s)?

             

            Do you have more than one hard drive or is there anything else customized in your system's configuration?

              Along with Steve's questions and comments, you say that you do have the latest video driver. Did you download and install this from the nVidia or ATI site? If one just relies on Windows, or a driver utility, to determine the latest driver, they likely have one that is many months old.

               

              Even simple OS updates and hot-fixes (automatically installed by default) can render a video (or audio) driver instantly obsolete. One must go to the mfgr's. site and get the very latest.

               

              I suspect a that an OS update has changed things. When something works one day, but not the next, then something has changed. The task is to find out what has changed, and correct that.

               

              Good luck,

                Steve, the only difference that I've noticed between this project (16:9) and two others that I'm working on (4:3) that work is the aspect ration.

                 

                Thanks for the questions and let me know if there is anything else I need to check.

                  Hi Bill,

                       Thanks for the questions & comments.

                   

                       I have the latest Intel HD Graphics drivers. They were downloaded from Gigabyte.

                   

                       The puzzling thing is that the other two projects that I'm working on work correctly.

                   

                  Thanks

                  Dennis

                    You are apparently using video from an AVCHD camcorder. You MUST use a Premiere Elements project setting for AVCHD (not the DV setting you are using).

                     

                    Your specs don't say if your camcorder shoots in 1920x1080 or 1440x1080, and you also don't say whether or not it shoots in 5.1 audio, but these things are vital to know since you will also need to know them in order to set up a project to properly use this video.

                      I'm using 1440 x1080  with 5.1 audio although the camera will do 1920 x 1080.

                       

                      So when i use a 1440 x 1080 clip(s) then I need to create the project with "HD 1080i 5.1 channel" preset or the

                      "Full HD 1080 i 5.1 channel" preset when shooting in1920?

                       

                      Then to create a std DVD (720x480) do that in the "Share menu"?

                       

                      I'm going to go back and re-read some of the sections in your book about projects setting.

                       

                      Thanks so much for taking the time to address my problem.

                        Steve,

                         

                        It appears to be AC3 6-channel, which would be the DD 5.1 SS Preset for AVCHD.

                          You are correct. Back at the beginning, one needs to match up their New Project Preset to the source footage. Editing will go smoothly then.

                           

                          Once complete, one then establishes the output via the Export/Share settings, say DV 720 x 480.

                           

                          This trips up many, as they assume that the Project Preset should match the desired output. Instead, it must match the source footage.

                           

                          Good luck,
