I’m a noob and I’m freaking out. I’m not new to video editing and have created and successfully export videos. However, I am currently stuck and have no idea how to fix the issue. I’m on a MacBook, Premier Pro v22.3. As the title states the [Command M] drop down is grayed out. I have watched over an hour of YouTube tutorials on how to fix this and suggested work arounds.

 

The export command is (now) also grayed out for all my previous video projects even those I have already successfully exported.

 

I emptied the cache. I restarted my computer.I also uninstalled and reinstalled Premiere Pro.

 

Still gray. Please help!

Make sure your sequence has the focus before trying to export.

Hello, Richard.

 

What do you mean "sequence has the focus?" Do you mean that the sequence panel is selected?

I had to look up "sequence focus." I think I know what may have happened. I cleared my cache in Preferences and I may have [stupidly] selected "Delete all media cache from the system." Would this erase all the sequence settings inormation?

No, Premiere will rebuild the cache if it needs to, it might take a little time. Setting the focus means having the sequence timeline selected as if you are editing.
