Hello! So I am having a lot of issues in Premiere right now.
I'll start from the beginning so that it's a little more understood.
I rendered out a video in After Effects. Usually I do it in Lossless 100GB Plus. No big deal. I then export the rendered video into PP, everything works. Audio is fine. All good. Or so I thought!
I render it out to be a smaller file size, a MUCH smaller size. It renders out fine, clean. Looks great! Audio works. I had to render it out without adding anything else in PP because hovering over "File" Freezes the program. I don't even have to click it. Ok, well. I go to the Sequence files to the left. Right click > Render. Render finishes. I listen/watch it playback at a 700MB file.
Great! Load it back up into a new sequence with all the others closed. Deleted the Lossless file as it's not needed and to free up space. Watch the playback in preview. Audio is great, video is great! Add in Graphics/effects. Watch back. Everything looks great, just superb!
Render it out. Takes 2 hours. Makes no sense. Stop the render, lower the settings to match previous file size instead of it being 1.2GB. Kinda concerning with my PC setup, but ok. Renders out in 15 minutes.
Listen/watch it. 10s of audio, the rest of the 9 minute video. Nothing. Zero. Nada. Audio is gone. Previous time, 45s of audio was gone too randomly. Went to make sure nothing got muted or deleted. Nope! All good, playback preview sounds and looks great! Render again but with different settings and made sure export video/audio was ticked. Nope.
Opened it up in Media Encoder. Same issue.
Also, hovering over File even when there is nothing loaded freezes PP. Wait about a minute and it goes back to normal.
