Hello, I am trying to export a 1 hour 45 minute video and whether I export straight from Premier pro or Media Encoder, it gets stuck at 99% and won't go past that. I was able to render the files fine, I tried leaving it over night, I have a very strong computer with more than enough space. I do 3 files, an audio file that I can hear, the video file that o can't see, and the mp4 file that has nothing on it. I think that the audio and video files are being made but it isn't mixing them together to make the mp4. I'm stuck
Make sure you're not exporting to a directory in a cloud folder like DropBox, G-Drive, OneDrive, or Creative Cloud itself. Look for a directory on your storage drive that doesn't have to do with clouds, as that could be causing the issue.
I am exporting to one of my external hard drives. Should I export directly to my desktop?
Not necessarily, but try.
I'm having this same problem, also exporting to an external drive, also stuck at 99% in the encoding process
How long was it stuck there? Ten minutes? An hour? Sometimes, it takes awhile to get the file written to disk and some people don't give it enough time to complete and force quit, especially on long exports. I agree that the progress bar should probably be a bit more accurate or at least tell you what's going on as your export is finalized.
Hope the info helps.
