As best as I can figure, something has gone seriously wrong with the audio channel mapping of a given clip.
You could start by trying to locate the audio preview files for this project & deleting them; although if this occurred after rendering the audio in your timeline, it might happen again if the project has some kind of corruption involving a given clip.
If that doesn't work, the hardcore troubleshooting method is to move/offline your media drive temporarily, then import your existing into a new project and tell it to offline all the clips. Then put your media drive back on, and relink clips one at a time, saving along the way, until you pinpoint the clip in question that is causing the issue. If you can identify the faulty one, I would hope that deleting that master clip & reimporting it should straighten things out.
If you ever figure out how to reproduce this bizarre scenario, that would be very useful information!
Ok, i will try that.
I have some audio mono clips imported with xml. And had put some gain and volume changes on it. I´ll try to exclude them and see.
Another observation is that the project crashes while loading clips (display left in status bar). It stops while loading 168 from 225 items.
Is there a log file or something that shows which clips causing the fail?
Started a thread here and Todd requested that I post in this one instead.
I've created three different sequences (actually edited by different people from the same base project copied to their computers) - all in their own sub project.
\----- Project 1 - with Multicam
\----- Project 2 - with Multicam
/---- Project 3 - with Multicam
Now, I need to assemble these in to a complete program.
Each project will load perfectly. However, when I import each project in to another one the merged project has problems like this:
I can't seem to pin point the cause - but it's stopped us dead. I've already cleared the cache (and deleted files). Not sure where to go from here....
I've read a lot of people are now seeing this exact same error under varying circumstances. Let's hope they get it resolved soon!
In the mean time, here's a work around I've been using to recover from this...
• After the error and impending crash, open the autosaved copy of the file (in most cases will be more current than your last saved original) and you will notice the error message pops up again - just click continue. All of your media will look like it's missing/needs to be loaded in the preview window, but it's a simple fix and quick too!
• Select-All of your content in the Timeline panel
• Right-click with your mouse and click off the "Enable" option
• Right-click again and re-select the "Enable" option
All your media will be online and connected as well as your rendered caches.
*Note that once your project has crashed, it will give this error EVERY time you save/close/reopen the project, so you'll have to repeat the steps above each time.
Really annoyingly, this has happened on yet ANOTHER project.
We have identical project files on both macs. We copy a project file from one mac to the other, then import from one project in to another. BANG. Now BOTH projects have this problem, not just the newly merged one.
Something somewhere is getting corrupted in the merge process.
This makes working with multiple editors on different macs a real PROBLEM.
Apparently this is a Mac-only issue from all that I've read about it. Nobody from Adobe has offered any solutions or even acknowldeges the problem so many are having with it.
This doesn't look good to the very community they are hoping to switch over from FCPsince the goofy FCPX has been released. Adobe's continued silence on this issue is suspect and not helping the community one bit.
I've uninstalled PPCS5.5 and gone back to CS5.0 but there is still some ghosts left in the install from CS5.5 as I'm still getting crashes in 5.0 now, though not as often and the same error doesn't come up.
I'm at a point now that I will most likely have to wipe my entire machine, reinstall CS5 and only install the CS5.5 suite apps that aren't crashing like Photoshop, After Effects and Audition.
Sounds like there's an article brewing to be written on this...
I'd like to add some more information to this.
1) Taking the project to a Windows Pc still produces the same error - it's a project problem!
2) Moving the project so that PP needs to ask for the media location helps in the following way:
a) When PP asks for media tell it to take ALL media OFFLINE
b) The project will load with media offline without any errors.
c) Save the project & close Premiere Pro (not required, but does check the project reopens without errors)
d) Re-open project - now without errors but media is offline.
e) Reconnect media a few at a time noting if the error ever occurs. In my case I went from around 8 errors to only one error which was a specific audio file that always had the error. Once I knew which file was the problem I recreated the audio file (using audition) and used replace footage to get the new audio file in to Premiere Pro.
f) Once all footage is reconnected without error save the project.
This took a project that either had multiple errors or fatal none loading problems back to a fully working project. Hope this helps some one out there in need!
