Very frustrating problem that I have been working on for hours and searching for a solution to, but with no avail.
As of July 27, 2016 when I last updated Adobe Media Encoder/Premiere, often when I export long videos (longer than 30 minutes-ish) via Adobe Media Encoder, my export fails and I get this error:
- Encoding Time: 00:19:30 [<------ this time is almost always different on each export-even if it is the same video that I am exporting]
08/08/2016 12:38:55 AM : Encoding Failed
Error compiling movie.
Unable to create audio renderer.
Writing with exporter: H.264
Writing to file: /Users/nathanieldodson/Desktop/03_FOR_PUBLISH.mp4
Writing file type: H264
Around timecode: 00;00;00;00
Component: H.264 of type Exporter
Error code: 6
If I try to export in Premiere Pro, it freezes at 0% and I have to force quit the application. Please help, my business is reliant on videos getting exported in a timely fashion and this problem has just cropped up after 5+ years of using Premiere/AME. Any information/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I have Macbook Pro (Retina, 15-inch Mid 2014) running OS X El Capitan
Processor: 2.5GHz Intel Core i7
Memory: 16GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2048MB
I am running a 4k monitor off the Macbook.
Again, I have never had this issue even once, but since July 27th, 2016 I have had this error over a dozen times.
I managed to get one 65 minute video to export a week ago by entering the Preferences of Adobe Media Encoder and unchecking "Import Sequences Natively", but after being able to export that project, the problem persists with new videos I am trying to export.
I have seen others talking about changing the name of the .prproj file and removing and special characters. That didn't help my case.
I have seen others talking about changing the name of the sequence being exported and removing special characters. That didn't help in my case.
I have seen the suggestion of deleting audio clips one at a time and undoing the delete to correct the problem. That didn't help in my case.
I did just remove the "03" from my "Output File" name (changed "03_FOR_PUBLISH.mp4" to "_FOR_PUBLISH.mp4") and as of writing this post it's gotten 47+ minutes deep in the encoding process. I'm skeptical that it will complete until I see it actually complete. Too many times setting AME to work only to return the next morning and realize nothing was exported or encoded.
Adobe, please give us the solution to this problem. All of these file naming changes and deleting audio "solutions" feel like duct tape solution at best.
I have entirely lost faith in Adobe Media Encoder doing its job. I feel like I'm hoping for a miracle each time I need to export a video (2-3x a week) and that really stinks.
I pay my Adobe bill every month to have access to the greatest suite of design, video, and development applications known to man, not to fuss with a gimmick problem in the Media Encoder. Adobe, please respond to my question, please provide a solution, and please provide a long-term correction to this very frustrating problem.
We recently released the new updates on August 3. Please try updating AME and Premiere Pro to the latest version if not done yet.
If updating doesn't help, could you try deleting some media cache files?
#1. Under the media cache location specified in the Premiere preferences > Media, please find "Media Cache" and "Media Cache Files" folders. After quitting all Adobe apps, please delete those folders.
#2. Also, from Premiere Pro's File menu > Project Settings > Scratch Disks, please locate the preview file locations. After quitting all Adobe apps, please delete those preview folders as well.
#3. Under ~/Library/Caches/TemporaryItems (From the Go menu of Finder > "Go to Folder", please paste this path to access this location), if you see folders "Adobe Adobe Media Encoder Audio Previews" and "Adobe Premiere Pro Audio Previews", please delete them as well.
After deleting these folders, please try again.
Hope this helps
In Premiere Pro CC 2015.4
I resolved this by creating a new sequence and copying-pasting the old timeline into it.
I had the same issue, and tried many different solutions that didn't work.
Until I noticed that the name of my Premiere project had a slash / in it.
I took the slash off the name, and I suddenly could export the project without any problem.
So verify if there's any punctuation marks in the name of your project and remove them.
Maybe it will work for you too.
Didn't have a slash or anything but opening the project and renaming it to something simple worked. Saved my life lol. Thanks!!
Removing the slashes from my project's name fixed the issue.
It is now 7/7/2018 and i'm currently having this problem. Disabling the native sequence import is getting my export done although i hope i can keep exporting future videos or else it's gonna be a big problem.
I am also having this problem. This is really screwing up my day!
Just save the project with a new name and that did the trick
I just renamed my project and fixed the problem
As an FYI: NONE of these 'fixes' work.
File name: test
Deleted cache folders and cache files
No extraneous characters in the file names
Saved the file with 3 different file names
No disk space issues, tried rendering to 3 different drives
Same file DID render before many times. Many files that did render no longer render, just tried opening them and rendering.
Deleted Premier and AE, reinstalled and have same problem.
This has been randomly happening for years: It's usually after a software update.
A five minute work process, followed by hours or days of tracking down answers. A terrible workflow.
I was having this issue due to folder permissions not allowing read/write access. The folder was copied from Google Drive locally. After the folder was copied I granted myself and my system read/write access to the files instead of just read access and then it worked.
I´m having the same issue in AME 2020. Tested 14.3.1 and 14.3. PLEASE FIX THAT PROBLEM ADOBE!!!!
Have to work on some heavy 360 client stitches and can´t wrap my brain around your bugs as well!!! I have a deadline!!!
2x 2070 Zotac RTX Super
1 TB m2 system
2 TB m2 cache
All drivers for all components are up to date. Newest Winidows 10 Pro is installed. If it´s the AE VR Plugin which I´m working with (Plugins: Lumetri, VR sharpen, VR Denoise and VR Converter) then PLEASE check them on compatibility as well and bring us a stable update ASAP!!!
Here´s the error code:

I installed the AE Version in English, for some reason AME won´t let me install it in English as well and keeps installing the German Version. Maybe this is source for the error?!
