I have a very simple project (mostly just working with one single clip) that I'm working on with a co-editor. Since he sent the project file back to me, every time I open it and try to do anything with it, it crashes within a minute.
If I add a new clip, if I relink a clip, if I import something, it crashes.
I have reset the preferences, restarted the computer, made a new project and imported just the sequence with the one clip, and it crashes every single time.
I'm at a loss here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Also, I'm on a 2019 iMac running macOS 11.5.2, and Premiere Pro v 15.4.1
You're already on your back-foot if you have to relink clips. Make sure you have all the assests you need and then have them setup in the same folder arrangement as you co-editor.
You could for now, try deleting your cache and see if that helps.:
• Start PP from it's normal desktop icon (IE: don't open from a project file link). • Close the Open/Home screen (and you will be in PP without a project open). • Go into Edit/Preferences/Media Cache (Mac users adjust menu name) • Then Press: Remove Media Cache Files: and Delete... • Select: Delete all media cache files from the system and OK • Close PP - It will create any needed cache files on the fly as you edit.
The one thing I can think of is that my co-editor is working with a low-res proxy file for the main piece of footage, and then I'm reconnecting the full-res one when I get it back (and I created the project file originally). But we've worked this way before with no issues.
