Hello all. I am currently a sophomore in college. In December of last year, I made the slow transition into the field of digital media. After a while of figuring out how everything works, I decided to join the Adobe family. Things have gone okay for the most part, but as I have progressed I have gotten more opportunities and taken on more responsibilities in my field of work. This often becomes difficult when I have to deal with constant Premiere Pro bugs, glitches, crashes, all of which somehow always result in none of my projects being auto-saved, causing me to lose HOURS of work. I cannot keep taking steps backwards when I have such a great opportunity ahead of me. What can I do about this as I have been searching for hours with no results.
Sorry about the trouble. Would you mind sharing your system details (OS, CPU, RAM, GPU)? Which version of Premiere Pro are you using?
Let us know. Happy to help.
none of my projects being auto-saved, causing me to lose HOURS of work.
I understand your frustration. Autosave has not always worked properly.
Sometimes you need to make a manual save before autosave will start.
You should be making manual saves at regular intervals. Then you won't be losing hours of work.
I make manual saves and backups after major edits on a regular basis.
Sorry for the frustration. You can send the product team feedback by creating a bug report here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/premiere-pro/ct-p/ct-premiere-pro?page=1&sort=latest_replies&filter=a...
I agree with Bob. I used to teach editing students to do the same. Many editors back up projects manually a few times daily for safekeeping or in case the Auto Save version does not work or becomes corrupt.
You can also save yourself a lot of heartache by maintaining the projects. Do this by launching them periodically and making sure that you are not updating your OS or hardware until exploring the implications of those decisions on these mission critical projects.
I hope the advice helps.
