Deleted Preview Files - Premiere Crashes On Open

Community Beginner ,

I'm opening up an old project from five years ago and each time I try to open it, Premiere crashes.

 

I'm using the latest 2024 version on a Mac Studio running OSX 14.5.

 

I link the media files, offline a few and then when I get to linking previews, which I deleted long ago, it crashes.

Any ideas or workarounds?

First I would try copying the sequence from the old projct and pasting it into a new project. Then close the old project and try connecting your media again.

Thanks for your help. Unfortunately I can't get the project to open. I can
link media when I go to skip linking the previews it crashes.

Create a brand new project in 24.x.x and then File > Import to import the old project file. When you now are promted to link media, skip the preview files.

Downgrade to the previous version of Premiere Pro and try again. The latest versions have issues and sudden chrashes is one of them.

Try importing the old project into a new project using the Media Browser.

It sounds like there is some corruption associated with the project or the media linked to the project.

Here are a few recommendations:

Save and Close the Project

  1. Make sure to save and close your new project after you've imported the sequence from Media Browser before you do anything else.
  2. If you're prompted to relink media, hold off doing this until you've saved, closed, and reopened the project.

New Sequence

When you say it crashes when you click the sequence, do you mean a single-click or double-click?

 

  1. If a single-click is still okay, create a new sequence in your project and load it in the timeline.
  2. Turn off the Insert or Overwrite Sequences as Nests button (under the timeline timecode).
  3. Select your old sequence in the Project panel and choose Clip > Overwrite. This should import all the clips from the old sequence into the new.

Import into After Effects

  1. Whenever I have corruption with an old project, sometimes a good trick is to import it into After Effects first with File > Import > Import Adobe Premiere Pro Project.
  2. Then save with File > Export > Export Adobe Premiere Pro Project. This seems to help clean up the code in the corrupted file.

 

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Paul

As Paul suggests, open the project and don't link any media. Does the project open and you can scrub on the offline sequence?

Try exporting and EDL, AAF or XML of the sequence and import into a new project.
