Do you mean the video, or the sequence? Sequences in Premiere don't 'exist' on disc, just as metadata within that project.

It is not actually the "sequence" either.

 

You say "when i cancelled the export, ...." Did you cancel the export after clicking "export" and it started exporting? Or before doing that? I cannot replicate what you describe.

 

I think this is what you are describing:

 

Video file is "MyVideo.mp4". I import it to PR. I drag it to the new icon and create a sequence, which by default is called "MyVideo".

 

If I export that sequence to THE SAME directory that I imported the file from, it prompts me, asking if I want to overwrite the file. I say "yes."

 

You export the file. You cancel the export (not sure at what step). The original video file is gone?

 

I tried this, but it was not possible. When I actually export it, I get an error message that I do not have permission to overwrite the file - I assume this is because the file is in use in PR. I could not get to a step where I could cancel the export.

 

Does PR tell you the original file is missing?

Yes, the video appeared in quick access and when I clicked it, it says that it's missing. Even in premiere pro it says that the video is offline
