Only work-around seems to be to switch to "Mercury Playback Engine Software Only" which is brutal with 4K nested sequences.

This has been discussed for years on the Adobe Forums
https://forums.adobe.com/search.jspa?q=time%20remap%20nested%20sequence

but I did not find it listed here, so I am posting it now.

It's been at least 4 years and this still hasn't been fixed, please fix this Adobe!
Time remapping a nested sequence should not result in black preview, and I want the option to use either rendering option.

Seems the problem isn't fixed yet? Also working with 5K footage, render and replace + warp stabilizer doesn't work just like nesting the clip and then adding warp stabilizer doesn't work: both instances render partly black clips...

So Adobe Technical support solves me the problem removing the folder of common in roaming. but it happens again when you make some changes in the sequence. So every time you have the issue you must close premiere and delete the folder. Looks it's a problem of the cache previews.

Having this problem as well. Time remapping nested sequence results in black frames. Turning to "software only" doesn't fix it, and the black frames are there after export too.

1. Switch the render to Software only (Not OpenCL or Metal) in both Adobe Premiere and Adobe Media Encoder if you're using it.

2. Close your project file, go to Documents and rename the 'Adobe' file 'Adobe OLD'.

3. Try exporting again.

It's July 2019 and I am still seeing this issue. If the product was able to use the multicore processors we have in 2019, switching off the GPU wouldn't be such a big deal.

I support this report. I edited in Premiere a 360 VR that is only a few seconds long and I included on it a time remapping. Once exported to After Effects in an arbitrary point becomes black and stays this way until the end.

I make a lot of timelapse videos, and am forced to forgo smooth speed transitions because of this bug. That's like half the use cases for me, which I've spend thousands on this software for (the other being 360 video editing, but now Sony Vegas has it).
Unurprisingly, the free tool FFMPEG is becoming my primary "editing" tool for timelapse ingest, since it can do things like time remapping, stitching and concatenating folders of image sequences without taking literal hours.

This and so many other major bugs that Adobe refuses to address is why I've switched to Resolve and I'm never looking back. Will be downgrading to just photoshop very soon.

@ Cyril Grosse, Same man, switching to Resolve and have never been happier. Sure, there is a learning curve, but that program is a game changer. Also, I don't have to tolerate bugs like this while selling my kidneys for it.
