My proxies won't load into the queue of media encoder

Every time I go to create proxy files, in premiere it says "creating proxies," but when media encoder loads, nothing happens, and none of the files load into the queue. I have the most recent versions of premiere and media encoder. I tried multiple clips from different projects, used custom ingest presets, and I even tried some of the default premiere ingest presets (which I usually wouldn't do because I like to create my own proxy ingest presets) Every time I give it a go, "creating proxies" comes up, media encoder loads, but then nothing happens. 

 

Does anyone have any advice on what they think could be the problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I was on chat with Adobe Support and they provided me with this solution. It worked

I run WIN10, on NVIDIA Quadro P4000, APP 15.1.4 AME 15.1.4

 

 

Rename the Premiere pro folder from the below shared locations.
1) Open Run command (Windows key + R key) -> type appdata in the box and press enter -> go to Roaming folder -> go to Adobe folder -> rename the Premiere pro and Media encoder folder here as Premiere pro.old and Media encoder.old.
2) In the same location, you will see folder named dynamic link

I was having the same issue and it turned out my Media Encoder wasn't as up to date as my Premiere so make sure their version numbers are matching.

Thank you for posting this. When I upgraded my apps I didn't know what had happened. I even uninstalled all the adobe apps and re-installed. I just did this method and they're working again. After I finish my projects I am going to do a fresh install of windows and adobe apps.

I eventually solved the issue by calling customer service at Adobe. They offered me very good service. The customer service representative was very patient. It turned out that my computer's hardware cannot process the 4K video editing on Premier pro. So, he guided me to change some settings to enable me to edit 1080 video files.

If you are struggling to find a solution for your premier pro usage like I did, calling them would be the most direct troubleshooting way.

Here is a link regarding Premiere Pro system requirements.

Never easy to troubleshoot premiere problems from a distance so please tell us your system specs: OS version, Premiere version, amount of RAM, Hardware specs including graphics card and if you have any 3rd party plugins installed for Premiere... Also, sequence settings and clip properties can also help.  Although you can throw almost any format into premiere, some formats can be problematic, particularly on an underpowered system..  A few years ago, there were serious issues with material shot on sony cameras that have been solved in more recent versions of the programs...  so tell us what camera the material was shot on.  

 

There were also problems (again with sony cameras) which recorded with 8 channels of audio that were impossible to recreate in proxy formats.  I can describe the workaround if nothing else works...

I had the same issue. The solution — install the same versions of Premiere and Media Encoder.

I fully switched to creating proxies manually from Media Encoder, using custom presets (build from the ProRes proxy preset).

In our case especially, Premiere doesn't do a good job on creating proxies itself when it comes to multichannel audio. For example MXF files containing 8 separate mono tracks. Premiere will definitely mess that up, resulting in either a replaced stereo track or an 8 track proxy where every track contains the same audio.

Since then, we have separate presets for each resolution/source type. For example when we shoot in 4K, we have a ProRes proxy at 2048x1080. When shot in UHD, the proxy ends up in 1920x1080. Both set up with 8 individual mono tracks. Once, for example, the source contains a stereo track (let's say a GoPro), we create a duplicate of the preset, changing the 8 mono track setting into stereo.

Of course you can use smaller proxies, as long as you maintain the exact aspect ratio as the source.

The best way to fix this is to give all adobe software access to your disk. In security and privacy then Files and Folders the only thing that gets selected is Documents. This doesnt help when trying to access footage on your external, where im sure most of us keep our footage stored. giving Premiere Pro and Encoder Full Disk Access, will allow the encoder to create proxies next in the same folder located on your external. Let me know if that helps. 

David.
