After upgrading to 19.5.1, this issue still persists. I am rendering 175 frames into a video and the Initializing Video Export progress bar gets about 80% across and stalls. The program is unresponsive after that.

Hi Everyone,

The primary cause of this issue has been addressed in the newest release of Photoshop, which is now available for download. Please open your Creative Cloud app, upgrade Photoshop and try your video render again. We would appreciate your feedback.

Thank you!

Hi Hannah:

Sorry for the delay in responding. I'm still experiencing this issue with PS 21.2.1on MacOS 10.15.5.

I just tried disabling third-party plugins, and still am unable to export video. Initializing video export progress bar hangs when it's almost complete.

My system specs:

Did you try completely disabling your anti-virus? That is what the issue was for me.

It helped me:

Close Photoshop.

Hold down the Shift key and launch Photoshop. A dialog appears during launch that reads "Skip loading optional and third-party plug-ins?"

Click Yes to skip loading optional and third-party plug-ins.

If you run Photoshop again in normal mode, the Render Video command works fine. The error can be repeated after restarting the computer. 

(Photoshop 2020, Photoshop 2021, Mac Os Mojave 10.14.6)

Amazing! I only get this error when the Bridge program is running. Once the Bridge is not running, the Render Video command works fine.
I've tried the "Skip loading optional plug-ins and third-party plug-ins?" Sometimes it helps, sometimes it doesn't.
It seems to me the problem is not fixed. Photoshop 2020, Photoshop 2021, Mac Os Mojave 10.14.6, MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015), external monitor 27"

I think Photoshop needs to go we need a new software that does better job not a bunch of employees who smokes crack before working on their updates.
