We are aware of an issue in Premiere Pro version 23.4: when transcribed clips in a timeline are taken offline and relinked, clips shift and reset to the first frame. Effects, transitions, and speed changes can also be removed or impacted. Our engineers understand the problem well, and we are testing fixes internally right now. We will roll the fix out to Public Beta as soon as we can and will get the fix into an official release ASAP after that. I will update this post with more details as soon as I learn them.
If you are experiencing this problem:
If you get the media relinking dialog in 23.4 and you have previously used transcription, close and do not save the project. Make a backup of your project file just to be safe.
Workaround #1 – Restore media
- Put the media back in its original location so no relinking is required.
* There are many cases where this is not possible; try one of the following:
Workaround #2 – Beta
- Download Premiere Pro beta version 23.6.0 build 02 or later
- Open in beta, reconnect the media, and ensure the sequence looks correct.
- You may choose to just work in Beta –or– save and open in 23.4
Workaround #3 – XML
- Export XML (File > Export > Final Cut Pro XML) from the original system that has properly connected media.
- Import the XML into a new project on the new system and reconnect the media
* Please take note – not all aspects of the sequence will be reproduced by the XML
Workaround #4 – revert to Premiere Pro 23.3
- Open Creative Cloud Desktop app
- Click on All Apps
- Find Premiere Pro
- From the three dots on the right, choose “Other versions”
- Choose 23.3
