When attempting to create proxies through right click on footage in the Project window and selecting "Proxy >  Create Proxies" the dialog box "Create Proxies" doesn't fully load. The dialog box opens but the "Preset" drop downs all read "Loading...". I cannot select any presets.

When I click "add ingest preset" Premiere will let me load an existing custom ingest preset created in Media Encoder but the dialog box won't make the preset available to click on.

When I attempt to cancel out of the dialog box Premier freezes and I have to force quite the application.


This all started when I was trying to create a custom Ingest Preset for making proxies for 4k DCI footage. I created a few custom encoding presets and ingest presets and then deleted them from the preset folders stored in the "Documents" folders.


I've tried:


Creating a new project and importing new footage

Transferring footage to a new external hard drive

Unistalling Premiere and all other CC aplications including the Creative Cloud desktop App

I've gone into the finder and deleted any existing custom created Ingest Presets


I'm running Mac OS 12.0.1 & Premier Pro 22



Crash, Freeze or hang
