i can see everything in the export window, but cant see the blue link for the location of the export. sometimes i can see the link and after naming the video and choosing the destination i still cant export. it says "invalid destination media file path unable to create output file"
Sorry about the issue. This shouldn't be happening. Which version of Premiere are you currently using? Are you able to export the file through Media Encoder? Have you tried running Premiere as an Administrator? Also, please share your system specifications (OS, CPU, GPU, RAM). Let us know. We're here to help.
Same problem here. I'm using Premiere CC 22.5.0 on a brand new PC (Windows 10). Everything was working fine but suddenly the locatoin option is missing, so when rendering it says "Invalid destination 'Meida File' path. Unable to create output file." Seems like a software glitch perhaps due to an update?
Please see attached screenshots.
Same problem here, using a multi desplay setup, resetting preferences did nothing, still the same problem.
I am using windows 10. (16GB ram) / AMD Ryzen 7 3800X 8-core Processor / NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060
Sorry about the issue. This must be frustrating for you. Could you switch to a single display setup for testing purposes and let us know if you still see the problem? Can you set the export location when you send the render to Media Encoder? I'll discuss this issue with the Premiere Pro team and get this addressed at the earliest. Thanks for reaching out.
I've found a very silly way to make this work after trying all kinds of things.
I experienced the exact same thing where exporting videos was working just fine and all of the sudden I couldn't select a location anymore as a Media File. I would get the error that no media file destination can be found.
What worked for me:
1. From the Export tab, untoggle the Media file that you can see on the left, and toggle YouTube (or perhaps any other type, I haven't tried that). You'll see that exporting the video for YouTube does show a location. I changed the location to my Desktop, just to make export destination as easy as possible.
2. Without going any further, I untoggled YouTube and toggled the Media File again. You'll see that the location is still not showing, BUT the weird thing is that you can click on that area (it's just invisiable?!). Clicking there opened up my folder to export my video to. I select the right folder, and all of the sudden the location has appeared again.
3. Click Export and it works like a charm.
How odd is that? But it works. Hope it's the case for anyone else too who's dealing with this issue.
Thanks a lot, it works now! But it is an annoying bug, it sould be solved asap.
Unbelievable. That really solved the problem. Thank you!
Same here, my goodness. Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!
it's always the simplest that works. Thanks it worked for me. 🙂
Just like that! It worked for me too.
