I had his same problem with Cineform sequences. It happened both during Export as well as Queue. Never did get it resolved and dismissed it as a problem with the Cineform codec. Now Im not sure that is the correct assumption.
Please try this workaround and let us know if it works:
Apply the Crop effect, but leave the properties at the default so that nothing is actually cropped.
Does this prevent the blue problem?
Hi Todd. The problem I had with this sequence ( Richard Harringtons tutorial DVD that accompanys his book) seemed related to his sequence being played on my system . When I created a new sequence on my system and pasted in the series of clips everything exported just fine.
As I said in my recent email, I removed the project folder a week ago and tried to bring it back today, but am having major issues with it. Ive tried several times to get an export going but I get the error I mentioned then lose the ability to see clips in either the source or record window. Sorry I cant be more help on this one.
I have had the same problem... sort of...
I had a sequence with normal footage files and an AE render on the timeline.
The file rendered the footage files fine and the AE rendered blue, all in the one file.
As soon as I ignored alpha (which wasn't required anyway) on the AE file in PP's interpret footage menu,
all rendered fine.
I must say this issue is intermittent as sometimes a restart or a cache clean fixes the issue.
And yes, all renders fine direct from PP, it's only through the AME that it happens.
Does the Prem Pro CS5.5.1 update address this?
I wouldn't think so; the bug lies in AME and not in Premiere Pro. That's why you were able to export directly from Pr and get a clean output, but queuing to AME was a one-way ticket to Smurf Village.
Colin, I thought Todd stated that regardelss of whether I use EXPORT or QUEUE, that the AME engine is used. The difference, he said is that EXPORT is "headless" and ties up PrP during the process as opposed to QUEUE which uses the AME "head" and releases PrP for other tasks.
That's probably the case, but that doesn't mean that the rendering/exporting engine is being addressed in the same way. I suspect that's where the issue lies--a layer or two above the actual "guts."
The KB article specifically mentions AME queued exports and not Pr direct exports: Movies have blue cast when exported through Adobe Media Encoder from Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 or CS5.5
Hi Navarro and all,
I experienced the same issue. Going through Premiere's export was fine, but the moment I started using AME, all I was getting was blue tinted renders.
Has this been fixed or addressed yet?
I recently started using Premiere Pro again.
And i have this issue too.
Whatever way i export, and i've tried many codecs, the clips i use that i have first created in AE with alpha's come out with the same BlueWierdness.
The only way i can get around it is to 'ignore alpha' on those clips. But this is not a solution as i need the alpha in them, thats why i made them.
This happens if i export out of Premiere Pro itself or with AME.
We just bought several suites of the Production Bundle. But we may be returning to FCP if we can't solve this issue.
I JUST SOLVED IT FOR MYSELF !!!....(as i was typing something i just read made me try something)
This project must be corrupted somehow.....Premiere has been crashin a lot, i mean a lot. After is has been open for a while it starts to crash everytime i right click on anything...?!
I just created a new sequence and copied everything from my original into it and exported from this new one and hey presto it works!
As i said all the crashing must have corrupted that sequence within the project. The new sequence is within the same rpoject but exports fine now..so this is a workaround.
I'd like to hear about anyone elses issues with premiere crashing frequently and any ideas...thanks...MAx
I had the same problem with QT clips with Alpha channel.
Getting same results with direct export or AME.
Putting black video below these clips, or ignoring Alpha, solves problem.
This should be fixed by Adobe.
