I've been rendering tiff's out of 3dsMax and editing in Premier for over a decade. As of three days ago, when I render out of Max and import into Premier, the footage comes in fine. Specs are correct in the Project Bin. If I try to use the images (drag into an existing sequence or "New Item" the clip to generate a sequence), Premier crashes.
Strange and problematic. If I use the Photoshop Image Script to resave the tiffs to a new tiff, that works fine. So now I have to process and re-save everything I render from 3DS Max.
I just rendered the project in an earlier version of Max and it works fine in Premier, so it isn't an Adobe issue, but an AutoDesk one. I'll get with them, but I've attached Max2022 & Max2023 rendered tiffs. The 2022 works fine. The 2023 crashes Premier (for me anyway). Maybe someone good at digging into the file can say why?
If you haven't done so already, please compare the export settings for a TIFF image sequence out of Max in 2023 vs 2022. It's likely Autodesk added features or properties to their TIFF export for 2023 and any change, no matter how small, may be enough for Pr to mishandle the files.
