Do not trust Project Manager in Premier to Archive Projects.

It misses critcial clips even if you do everything correctly.

 

If you do use it make sure you open up the final project and test the video 

it won't give errors so you need to check the whole video. It also wont always show a sequence where the missing one is you need to check element by element its not worth the risk.

 

Hopefully nobody else has to suffer the hours i've wasted trying to figure out what I did wrong only to realise its buggy.

 

You have been warned.

I am going quietly mad, Project manager only shows the first two clips out of a 45 minute edit. Actually one is a clip I have discarded. I have tried importing, starting a new project, using Media encoder, but Project Manager still only shows the first two. Adobe help tends not to understand the editing process. Urghh.

gotta say that this has always been a problematic feature in many NLE's.   Can remember serious issues in fcp7...  Rob is dead on with the need to check the consolidated sequence to make sure everything worked properly. 

I'd do some testing before assuming it's caused by premiere issues.  Find a shot in your timeline that is NOT working with project manager.  Create a new sequence with the same sequence setttings as your problematic one and copy that shot into the new sequence and see if it processes properly. 

By any chance, do either of you have clips from a smartphone or screen recording in your sequences?  If so, variable frame rate sources may be causing the problem.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply. No, I don't have any smartphone or screen recordings.
The footage was shot on Canon 6D in Hd. I edited and uploaded a couple of
videos early this year, rendered them and put them up on Vimeo. The only
difference this time is that I have quite a few stills in the program, and
I created the titles in Photoshop ( I find it easier to work with). I
reduced the size of the stills, and I inserted them as small JPEGS - I have
even tried GIFs.
Any ideas or suggestions? I have been thinking of resorting to Corel
Videostudio, though it isn't great as I need more than one voice track.

Thanks
