I'm using the latest verion of premiere pro (22.3.1) on windows and everything has worked perfectly up until I tried importing an mp3 file (I have imported multiple into this project before with no issue) and suddenly the playhead wont move, I can't playback the video, everything becomes uninteractable.
But the software hasn't crashed, there's no errors and simply hitting ctrl + z to undo to before I imported the file brings it back to a working state with no issues.
I have cleared my cache multiple times, made sure I'm using the latest version, I have 400GB free on the SSD that the project is on.
This also happens when importing any file type, it's just reached a point where it can't handle importing anything.
If that doesn't work, try resetting the Workspaces: Reset a workspace Reset the current workspace to return to its original, saved layout of panels. 1. Do one of the following: • Click the Workspace menu icon and select Reset to Saved Layout. • Choose Window > Workspace > Reset to Saved Layout. from here: https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/using/workspaces.html
If that doesn't work, try Preferences > Audio Hardware and set Input to None.
If that doesn’t work, try updating or rolling back your graphics driver directly from the video card manufacturer’s site. If NVIDIA, do a clean installation of the latest Studio Driver (NOT the Game Driver)
If that doesn't work, try creating a new project and import the old one into it.
