I'm exported a video from Premier Pro 19 as an mp4 file. When I try to Air Drop the mp4 to my iPhone, I get this message on my phone: "Failed to save item. Save to iCloud Drive Instead?" Why wouldn't I be able to AirDrop this to my photos in a normal manner? Is anyone able to airdrop their Premier Pro exported projects to their iOS device?

People have posted this question, but I found no clear answer:

Can't airdrop premeire pro 18 projects to iphone help

Premier Pro Video Failing airdrop

 

UPDATE:

I was able to airdrop it when I followed these sequence settings and export settings.

I think I found it! — I was having the SAME problem. I switched this ONE thing and suddenly it worked!  Change your field order to Progressive.  Hope this Helps!

Thanks for sharing! When you say "In the sequence settings of the timeline, change Display Format...", are you referring to a setting in Media Encoder, Premiere, or After Effects?

Hello! It's me from the future, and this is still an issue. I was able to resolve it with the following sequence and export settings. Obviously the video dimensions may vary, but the important settings are:

 

(Sequence Settings)

Pixel Aspect Ratio: Square Pixels

Fields: No Fields (Progressive Scan)

Display Format: 29.97 fps Drop-Frame Timecode

 

(Export Settings) 

Format: H.264

Preset: Match Source - High Bitrate

 

Ensuring these settings are the same in every sequence guarantees my videos are able to airdrop to and play on iOS.

 

Best of luck!

 

Nate.

Try saving the original video in Premier Pro as a H.264 format in the export settings. 

File > Export > Media > Format > H.264 > Export

I almost threw my iPhone and Mac through the window with this one!! But I found something that worked for me. 

 

These are the setting I tried that worked. 

 

Format: H.264

Preset: Match Source - High Bitrate

 

Under Video settings:

Basic video settings: Match Source

BUT! Untick frame rate and set to 24. 

 

Hope this helps!

So it's September 2021 and the problem isn't fixed. None of the suggested workarrounds (unbelievable that I have to try to work arround while I pay for the Master Collection!) work. Exporting via quicktime does not work. I have to use imovie now. That must actually be a funny joke???

December 2021 and still not working.  I tried all suggestions in the comments and the only one that fixes the problem is to open in quicktime and export as a new file.  Sucks since this also reduces the quality of the video.  There must be a better way to ensure I can move files from Mac to iOS without loss of quality.  I'm spending way too much time on this problem instead of where I should be spending time - editing videos.
