some quick suggestions
- a particular project may have become corrupt. You might try importing that project into a new one.
- Clean your cache (Preferences/Media)
- Trash your prefs. http://blogs.adobe.com/genesisproject/2009/11/having_weird_behavior_with_an.html
Hope this helps,
Thanks for your suggestions.
I followed each of them, but nothing worked. Situation is still the same. Any more thoughts ?
I see over here
that there is someone else with the same problem but it was solved by restarting - sadly in my case the restart doesn't solved anything.
hmmm...it seems there is a "possible" solution...though not pretty
Only by starting a completely fresh project from scratch and then importing the problem files with the import command again...the links in the EX files seem to be repaired and the file will play the 4GB EX clips linked again.
strange, importing those same files with the import command into the original project does not solve it...it has to be a fresh project...
i will do more research.
I have no idea if this will work.
Re-name the folder you have your files in.
When you start Premiere it will ask for the files again.
Maybe it will see them all and will work.
Worth a shot.
My problem is solved...thought i would post the simple fix.
All i had to do was start a completely fresh project, import the same problematic EX3 assets into that new project (via Import command) and then drag that clip into the timeline and instantly all EX clip links were restored ...and here's the weird part, they were restored not just in the new project but in ALL other projects that used those EX3 assets. ie. by doing this, my original project was also repaired. Don't ask me why...I'm just happy.
There is another thread on the same topic overe here ( http://forums.adobe.com/message/3362918#3362918 ) if anyone is still having problems.
