I recently downloaded a plugin called "GoPro-FX-Reframe-Plugin-1.2.2.164" so I could edit 360 degree footage in Premiere.  Right after I did this, Premiere Pro won't even open anymore.  

 

What I've already tried:

• Uninstalling Premiere Pro and Installing the application again via Creative Cloud app.

• Mac OS X System Update

• Restarting iMac computer

 

This is the message I'm seeing every time I try to open Premiere:

Please help.  I need to continue editing ASAP, and this has completely shut me down.

Hi Charles,

Sorry about that! Think the issue, I would think, is around the GoPro-FX-Reframe-Plugin. Have you run an uninstaller for that plug-in yet?

 

Thanks,
Kevin

Hey Kevin,

 

How do you uninstall a plugin?  I know how to uninstall applications, but not sure how I could find this specific plug-in and uninstall.

Ok, I just got Premiere working again!  As suspected, the GoPro-FX-Reframe-Plugin was the problem, and I deleted the plugin by following the following step:

 

Stuck at Initializing MediaCore or while loading third-party plugins:

Navigate to the default plugin location and move all the plugins from the MediaCore folder to a folder on the desktop and then check if the app is launching properly.

Default plugin location:
Windows: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\Plug-ins\7.0\MediaCore
macOS: /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0/MediaCore

 

Once I navigated to "MediaCore" folder in macOS, I was able to delete the GoPro plugin, and then Premiere opened without crashing.  Issue resolved 👍🏻
