Photoshop :: Dynamic Link Media Server Error On Video Export CS6
May 18, 2012
Whenever I attempt to render video or export a photoshop file as a video I get the following error:
dynamiclinkmediaserver has encountered an error
Hitting continue does nothing and the application just hangs on the video export progress bar.I've attempted to export several types of PSD files to video, some old, some new (made in CS6) and I always get this error. I have reset Photoshops preferences. I have uninstalled the entire CS6 suite and reinstalled it.
On a whim I decided to reinstall PS CS5 and try to export from there. Worked like a charm. Was able to export video from my PSDs like before.I am currently running:
Creative Suite CS6 Master Collection
My hardware is:
Model Name: iMac
Processor Name: Intel Core i5
Processor Speed: 2.8 GHz
Memory: 8 GB
Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3
I have a problem with this patch. When a I try to click on File/Import/Video Frames To Layers there's an error "DynamicLink Media Server is not available". I try to wait 30 second and restart the program and my pc, but there have been no changes.I also updated the patch downloaded from the website version 1.01
I saw that others have had this problem, but I have not figured out how they did to solve it. I'm Italian and I understand little about your language so.
This is the message that pops up after I try to import video frames to layers. I've looked everywhere for some sort of solution to this problem. I've tried closing the program, waiting for about a minute and re-opening it multiple times, I've tried restarting my computer, I've tried disabling my firewall, I've tried using Bridge, and I've tried just about every other option that has been given to others who have reported this same issue. None of it has worked for me.give me a clear answer as to what I could possibly do to fix this problem that I haven't already tried.
I'm using Photoshop CS6 and I keep getting this error while trying to import video frames to layers
I've looked around and tried the recommended steps offered on other threads. When I reboot my laptop it works again for maybe five minutes but the moment I try to import another video it doesn't work. If I close the program, wait 30 seconds, and try again I get the error message again. When I try opening Bridge the whole program freezes.
Just tried to import file sinto a brand new LR Catalog when I got this message...here's the entire error message: "An unknown error has occurred while reading the video file. Connecting to Dynamic Link server failed. (98)" Connecting to Dynamic Link Server Failed
this was then followed by a list of files of these types:
A Google search result just now showed me only 2 years of questions posed, with no Adobe Support Answers.
MacBookPro 2008 Mac Mavericks OS LR v 5.3
Video was viewed in 2013 in LR 4, but after install of CC and LR 5, playback is not functioning.Tried restarting LR 5, the HDD dedicated catalog and exporting a test file. The above error message occurred while trying to reimport the test video (.avi) file.
While in grid view, when curser moves over the thumbnail, image seems to fast forward. After clicking twice on the thumbnail, there is no image in Loupe view. There is kind of a weird black, white and gray graphic.One attempt to start playback resulted in this error message in white text on a black banner, " There was an error working with the video."
I decided to download the trial version of Adobe After Effects CS6. I've been playing around with it and I've run into trouble. When I try to us the 3D Camera Tracker tool, I'm promptly greeted with an error that states, "unable to obtain dynamiclink server." This happens every single time I press the "analyze" button. It happens with every single clip I try to use (AVI, WMV, MP4, etc.) I've checked my firewall and virus protection (Kaspersky) and nothing is restraining anything in After Effects
This has been hit and miss. I am now consistenly getting a dynamic link server connection trying to use Track camera in After Effects.
64GB RAN Windows 7 proffesional i7 processor NVIDIA GEFORCE TITAN
I have enabled all the recommended programs through my firewall. I see the dynamiclink server is running in my task manager, I have closed all other programs, no antivirus, I have restarted my computer, no luck with this.
Also to add additional information:
It seems that when I try to do replace with After Effects composition in Premiere Pro I am getting error: The importer reported a generic error
and also when I first launch After effects I am getting a failure to load a few plugins from CineForm including importer
1) Importing 1920 x 1440 GoPro footage, .mp4, 29.97 fps : What sequence settings do I need for this media? I can't find any presets that match it. So I just pick a 1440 x 1080 sequence. What should I be doing?
2) Exporting Media quality is very poor and pixelated. I am just importing a video into a sequence and exporting about 10 seconds at a time with different export settings: H.264/Match Source, Quicktime, H.264-Blu ray with different presets. And I'm checking "USe max render quality". Every time it renders very pixelated.
I'm attempting to create a dynamic link from PR to AE (both CC) by right clicking on the desired clip in my PR sequnce and selecting "Replace with AE Comp". Doing so properly launches AE, asks me to save the AE project, and creates a comp with the correct parameters (duration, frame rate, size, etc) with the desired comp name. The sequence in PR shows the linked comp with the correct comp name. However, in both AE and PR the video clip is simply black. In my understanding of Dynamic Link, the original files (clips) should be sent over to the AE project. In my case, I only see the project with no associated files. Is there a trick (or a known reason) why the files would not be transpored to the AE project?
when selecting a simple clip on Premiere CC timeline and selecting 'Replace with After Effects composition', from Adobe Dynamic Link, AE CC launches, creates a new (empty) comp but does not import the footage clip into the project
Our IT system is not capable of downloading my media from the ADSK Website without timing out. Seems that our internet connection actually comes from and/or is filtered through New York while I am in Virginia.
So I have requested and received a set of media from ADSK for all my products. I am in then process of copying each to a server location to install from. In doing that you must ignore the autorun.inf file but I have also ignore the MID.txt and setup.ini files. The reason being that each of them specifies that the media is USB within them, see attached.
Does these files are necessary to install from the server location and if they are is there a form that these statements needs to be changed to?
Downloaded 2014 product could you look to see if these files exist and what these statements are in them.
I use lightroom to edit the timelapses I shoot and it works brilliantly with the sync setting. But my problem is I use presets that call for the slideshow to move at 24 fps, 26fps, 30fps etc. and some of these time lapses contain over 300 photos and whenever I try to export the timelapse as a video from the slideshow module about an 8th of the way into the progress bar it stops and a message comes up that says "unknown error occurred" So my question would be: Is there a maximum number of slides you can have in a slideshow and is that what's causing this to happen?
So I've done a reasonable amount of work with dynamic blocks. I have a block with a rotation action and grip to arbitrarily align it. However I realized when trying to combine it with an alignment grip (which actions on the basic or fundamental block rotation angle) that there didn't seem to be a way to some how link a dynamic block rotation action or one of the custom angle properties to a the fundamental block rotation angle. Thus there are two additive rotations at work; the dynamic block one with its grip and the fundamental rotation property.
This can cause some confusion when one person aligns with the grip and another via rotating the block's fundamental property and would also be problematic in the generalized sense if one was trying to select or programmatically read back the net angle alignment.
I am using Lightroom 5 also to color grade some of my short videos as it seems to be pretty handy. Unfortunately, for some videos the export fails with the error that the hard drive does not contain rendered images. The screenshot below shows the error message in German.
As I was using the same options for many other videos before, I was wondering what causes this error. The hard drive where I have the lightroom catelog is an external USB3 hdd with lots of space left.
When I open my project the media associated with the project shows that it is loading in the lower left hand corner of the program. It gets to about 123 files left to load and then it stops. I then have to attempt to locate all the rest of files with the Link Media tool this works for a few files and then it stops responding. What is the problem and how do I keep my project linked to its media assets?

Media is stored on a 8TB Raid 10 NAS connected with a Gigabit router. The NAS is on my desk connected directly to my computer through the router.
how to properly link my footage on my timeline to color corrected files from film convert. I know how to do it to each individual clip at a time, but when I select a whole folder, it always relinks the media to it's original destination and not the new destination with the color corrected files. What's the correct way to link multiple clips to new source files?
I recently installed CS4 and when I quit Photoshop CS4 I get a "DDE Server... memory could not be 'read'" error. I've looked all over the forums for solutions to this, tried deleting my preferences file, reinstalling CS4, and fiddling with performance options, but nothing seems to make a change. I never had much trouble with CS2 or CS3.
