Premiere Pro :: Unable To Link Clips Due To Generic Import Error?

Feb 13, 2014

I am using Premiere Pro CC, up to date, on Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.  After week's vacation opened large project to find all clips offline.  When I linked, they located fine but OK produce "the importer reported a generic error".  I know the clips are on their hard drives and have not changed position.  I am not sure of next step.  I have always been able to link before though have not used "locate" dialogue box.  Checking other projects reveals consistent problem with importer.

Premiere Pro :: Dynamic Link - PR To AE Creates Comp But No Video Clips (files)

Feb 10, 2014

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?

Premiere Pro :: Can't Open Sequences Or Import Clips - File Format Not Supported

Dec 17, 2013

We have an iMac workstation here running Premiere that will not open projects or import clips.  Here's the sequence of events that led to this:
1.  Premiere was locking up on the splash screen whenever it got to "ImporterQuicktime.bundle".  I tried trashing preferences and launching with plug-ins disabled and received the same freeze.  Based on forum recommendations I removed "ImporterQuicktime.bundle" and "ExporterQuickTimeHost.bundle" from the plug-ins folder inside the package.  The software launched fine - but none of the Quicktime files in the project were working.  So I then took copies of the above 2 files from the iMac next to this one, with the exact same configuration, and pasted them into the plug-ins folder.  Since then - launching the software has generated the below errors.
2.  Attempting to open any project gives a long error that starts as:  The preset used by one or more sequences in this project requires third-party components that could not be located.
3.  Starting a new project and attempting to drag any Quicktime ProRes media into the project gives the error:  File Format not supported.
I have trashed the preferences, re-installed the Pro Apps Quicktime Codecs, de-authorized the computer and re-authorized it, and upgraded Adobe Premiere from 7.0 to 7.2.  None of which fixed the issue.
I'm thinking about trying a complete re-install of Premiere next. 

Here's the details:

Premiere Pro :: GH2 Video File - Clips Audio Was Assigned To All The Other Remaining Clips?

Mar 5, 2014

I've been working the last 6 months with 4 GH2s and ran into some strange troubles when initially importing them to the timeline. 2 hour shots are divided into 6 or 7 different files, and when brought into PP the first clips audio was assigned to all the other remaining clips. This was pretty strange, but I fixed it by using TSmuxer. It was added time in the workflow/set up, but in the end I could produce; 

The latest update of PPCC now combines the entire 2 hours of footage into each of the 7 files being imported. So it is importing 2 hours of footage 7 times for each camera. The conforming is taking forever! For 4 cameras it's conforming 14 hours of footage each, when it should literally be a 7th of that.
It is taking up large amounts of time and disk space.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Use A Generic Link Slope

Dec 4, 2013

I haven't had to use a generic link slope in a while, but I'm baffled as to why this isn't working for me. Below is my assembly which looks looks fine, but the corridor is doing the opposite of what it should be doing. 

And here is what the corridor is doing.

My grass strip link is going in the opposite direction and it's much longer than 7 feet. Am I missing something or is this another bug?

After Effects :: Importer Encountered A Generic Error

Oct 24, 2013

1. I have updated my Mac Pro to Mavericks; and

2. I have downloaded and applied the patch that was released.
I can open, edit, and export my files just like pre-Mavericks; however, when I go to import them into Premiere via Import, I get an import error:
"The importer encountered a generic error."
Oddly, when I look at the exported files in Finder (which, by the way, do not throw an error during the export process -- I have clean logs), I don't have a preview thumbnail like I did before. Now, it's a placeholder Quicktime logo. Hitting space bar to preview them only offers the information window, which show "Zero KB" as the file size... but in Finder, it clearly shows the correct file size.
Opening the files in Quicktime gives me a "converting" message before opening (these are .MOV files that shouldn't need converting at all), and exporting them from QT won't allow for an Alpha channel, ruining the transparency of the lower third.

VideoStudio :: Cannot Import Raw Video Clips / Select Import Source Folders

Nov 20, 2010

I'm in the process of evaluating several video editing programs. So far I've used AVS Video Editor, Cyberlink Power Director and Adobe Premiere.With each program I've spent 30 minutes making a quick demo video to see how intuitive it is and how well it performs. Today I downloaded Corel Visual Studio and decided to give it a go.

I've run into a problem straight away.I've tried to import raw avi files.So I'm using the "Select Import Source Folders" screen.When I navigate to the folder containing the files the OK button is greyed out and won't work.It's greyed out all of the time.

AutoDesk Smoke :: Cannot Successfully Import Clips Via Gateway Import

Jan 21, 2012

I can tell you cannot Gateway Import from a drive that is Read-Only. The clip seems to work, it just says pending render, of course when you import a large number of files it always says pending render. Unfortunately it never actually finishes pending render, and will list as failed in Backburner.

So you can for instance think you have relinked an entire timeline and start doing a fair amount of work on it, but you will then be unable to send this large timeline to your flame like you think.

There is no god damned reason it should allow you to gateway import something that you cannot actually gateway import. All it would need to do is check if the drive is read only before it does it and give you an error message IN THE APPLICATION. Rather than everything looking fine, but then making you go tease the meaning out of this from backburner:

smk001 1896942624 swBIOSubJobServer.C:298 01/21/12:18:14:05.450 1896942624 swBIOAdapter.C:403 01/21/12:18:14:06.504 Cannot process tasks 0... in /var/tmp/WireJob/SubJob0.

Read-only file system on processing S+W server..The fact that the color correct house had randomly given me an NTFS drive this time didn't occur to me for quite awhile, since the last two were both macOS.

Premiere Pro :: Won't Allow To Synchronize Clips?

Sep 5, 2013

I really want to be able to use the new Synchronize feature of PP (Clip > Synchronize), but I tried selecting two video clips (a video clip, and two audio tracks), and right-clicking, but the option to Synchronize is greyed out. If I select certain clips, then it appears, but I don't see what the pattern is. It seemingly picks random clips to not sync.

Premiere Pro :: Merging Clips In CS6?

Mar 27, 2014

I've been working on a project that involves 45 separate clips. I have cut the unwanted stuff out of each clip - was a lot easier than I thought - just dragged the start and end point icons. So now I have 45 clips which just need joining together. When I shot all the footage and uploaded it to my computer the file I saved as Clip 1 may not be what I want to start the movie with. How do I go about shuffling the order of the clips and combining them all into one to form my movie - and when I join two clips together does Premiere Pro  automatically join the sound.

Premiere Pro :: Saving MXF Clips To MXF Container

Jan 13, 2014

I am completing a 52-minute program, with 20 short sequences shot in ProRes 422 (50 Mbps) and saved to MXF OP1a files. The package looks good when output to Blu-Ray, but I will need to output for broadcast, and the broadcaster prefers MXF deliberables. My Question: Is there any significant loss of quality by saving 20 MXF files (with dozens of ProRes clips) to a final MXF container?

Premiere Pro :: Why Do Certain Clips In Sequence Appear Locked

Apr 12, 2014

I have multiple sequences that use clips from an interview that show diagonal lines through them in the timeline.  Not all files from the interview have these diagonal lines.  These problematic clips do not contain audio or video when the playhead is on them.  They don't even have a thumbnail pic in the sequence while other shots from the interview do. How I can get these to work in the timeline again?

Premiere Pro :: +/- Has Appeared On Clips In Timeline

Dec 9, 2013

I'm working on a Premiere Pro CC project with another editor.  On his latest version, some of the clips on the timeline have a "+/-" or  "+2" or "-2" on them.  He's not sure how that happened, and I've not seen it before.  What do those mean, and how do I get rid of them?  I've tried Googling, but search engines don't respond well to "+/-".

Premiere Pro :: CS6 / Joining Two Clips After Cutting?

Jan 14, 2014

after razor cutting a clip (and doing other steps after it): is it possible to join the clip again?

Or is it the only way to delete the first or the second clip and strech the other? But this would be a little circuitous.

Premiere Pro :: Highlighted Clips In Sequence

Mar 24, 2014

Add Edit don´t cut all the layers highlighted. When I insert or overwrite a clip into the timeline, the timeline don´t respect the highlighted layers (ex. if layer 1, 2 and 3 were highlighted and the clip were put in layer 1, clips on second and third layer should be deleted between in and out markers, but they aren´t.
The Ctrl+D and Ctrl+Shift+D commands (add transition) doesn´t work like the other versions too (respecting where the cursor is)the buttons to go to the next cut on timeline (in my keyboard, A and S) doesn´t work right too.I would like to know if these are bugs or the new Premiere CC is different from the others before.

Premiere Pro :: End Clips Is Not Separated From Audio

Mar 24, 2014

I have a synced three camera project that I have almost finished editing. I want to select the last video clip in my sequence and roll it back, while keeping the audio in place.  The idea is to fade the picture to black while the synced audio continues as credits roll over black.  However, I cannot find a way to select video only on the clips at the beginning and end of the sequence.  I can select and separate any video clip in the middle of the sequence, but not the clips at the ends.  I must be missing some keystroke.  How do I do it?
I am noe to Premiere Pro and am using version CC.

Premiere Pro :: Relinking Spanned Clips?

Feb 18, 2014

I have received a project edited on PPro 7.1.0 with a number of Canon C300 spanned clips. I have PPro 7.2.1. When I relink the clips the spanned clips link incorrectly. In fact all the span clips have incorrect timecode. The original editor on PPro 7.1.0 brought in the span clips as individual clips with sequential timecode. When I import the clips they come in as clips all of the same length but the time code is way off eg a clip that should start at 01:01:31:17 starts at 01:17:18:18. This is really less than satisfactory and the fact that we need to hand this project back and forth is really going to make life very difficult. Adobe and Canon need to sort this span clip thing out.

Premiere Pro :: Yellow Preview Bar With ProRes Clips?

Feb 17, 2014

Even though I've made sure that my sequence settings are exactly matching my clip settings (ProRes4444 or 422HQ) I'm getting a yellow bar over my sequence. 
I'm working on a 2012 Mac Pro running OS 10.7.5.  I downloaded Premiere Pro CC earlier today; I thought I'd play around with it to see how it compares to FCP7.  Most of my NLE usage is very simple, just assembling sections of motion graphics and 3D animations rendered out of After Effects in the ProRes 4444 codec.
The "New Sequence from Clip" function isn't behaving as I'd expect.  The comparable feature in FCP creates a sequence that matches all aspects of the selected clip (size, framerate, codec, etc.).  The Premiere implementation appears to only match the sequence size and framerate to the selected clip.
If I create a new sequence from a ProRes clip, or tell the sequence to match the clip, I'd expect that clip to be sitting in my timeline with no bar of any color.  But I get a yellow bar.  When I go to Sequence Settings I see that the editing mode is Arri Camera, and the Video Preview is greyed out on an MPEG format.  I have to go to Custom and manually select Quicktime, then specifiy the matching ProRes codec.  Shouldn't those wrapper and codec settings be matched automatically too when I've specified that function?
That said, if I go in and manually match the codec settings to my clip I still get the yellow bar.   If I select another sequence and click back on the new sequence the yellow bar is gone.
I'm assuming that this yellow bar issue is a display error of some sort, because if I export the sequence with "Match Sequence Settings" selected the export happens very quickly as I would expect with a Smart Render-compatible sequence.

Premiere Pro :: Analyze Content / Sequences As Well As Clips?

Feb 11, 2014

I recorded video on a Black Magic Cinema Camera (BMCC), which has legendary video quality but an awful on-camera microphone with tinny recording process, and recorded audio on a Zoom H6 which has great low-noise, more bits and greater sampling rate capability.
In Premiere I made a Sequence containing the video footage, then added the H6 audio and synchronized it by waveform to the BMCC's audio, which I subsequently muted.  I call this a Source-Sequence, as it is intended as a virtual source media item, to be cut into one or more Edit-Sequences (my term).
Not "holding my breath" but trying it anyway, in Premiere's Project/Bin pane, I selected that source-sequence then did RightClick > Analyze Content.  Teasingly, that option was not greyed-out.  However all options in the the resulting popup-dialog were greyed-out.
In this situation, to be useful, the speech analysis would need to be available to Sequences, not just to (Master) Clips.  Obviously one could render such a sequence to intermediate but that would waste time and disk space and would essentially freeze the state of the Source (e.g. including any sync issues that might be discovered later, or whole-source color corrections issues etc.).  If one subsequently altered that state, a re-render, re-link and re-analysis would be required.  If a Souce-Sequence were used instead, and no alteration had been made to the audio (or if user indicated "don't care"), then there would in principle be no need for re-analysis.
