From PP CS5 to AME CS5 on a PC (Windows 7 (64-bit), i7 930, 18GB Ram)
Any video format I try to encode... and TO any format will get this error.
When I export to AME, AME will spawn but the project will not load. When I go to load it by hand [file>Add Premiere Pro Sequence] the project will load, but will remain with a "waiting" status.
Then, when I close AME, I get this error message "Adobe Media Encoder has encountered an error. [...\...\Src\Core\DataWriter.cpp-226]"
I'm fairly certain I caused this problem a few days ago. I had multiple things running in the queue and my computer was running REALLY unusually slow, so I checked out what processes were sucking the most memory, and of course AME was up there. Google Desktop was up there too, so I closed that down. But there was also a process that I seem to recall was started by Premiere Pro that was sucking a lot of memory. I figured since I was done with Premiere for the day, I'd stop that.
Immediately after I did, the currently running AME project got an error. I realized my mistake. And none of the others in the queue would start.
I was done for the day anyway, so I shut everything down and figured the problem would fix itself with a reboot the next day. No such Luck...
I've since combed the online forums for a solution... no luck. Any Ideas?
