I'm exported a video from Premier Pro 19 as an mp4 file. When I try to Air Drop the mp4 to my iPhone, I get this message on my phone: "Failed to save item. Save to iCloud Drive Instead?" Why wouldn't I be able to AirDrop this to my photos in a normal manner? Is anyone able to airdrop their Premier Pro exported projects to their iOS device?

UPDATE:

I was able to airdrop it when I followed these sequence settings and export settings.

I have this problem as well and it's very frustrating. If I take the MP4 file created in Premier Pro run it through an online MP4 file converter without changing any settings from the original, it will AirDrop.  This is a pain and we really need a solution

Hey! 

Can you please tell me which Mp4 converter did you use? Please share the link. I am also facing the same issue with Airdrop.

Thanks.

try

file - export - media 

adjust the settings how you want 

and then press queque instead of export. 

media encoder will open. select (click once) your video and then press the green play arrow in the top right. 

once its done it will say done and you can click output file name in blue to open your video

and from there you should be able to air drop it. 

lmk if it works for you like it has for me!

Just wanted to comment and say that this is still an issue in September 2020. What's going on, Adobe?

I run into this issue seemingly at random. It does not matter whether it's a project created in Premiere, After Effects, both, or whether I export the mp4 through Premiere or Adobe Media Encoder. Sometimes it can Airdrop to my phone, and sometimes I get the same error mentioned above. So frustrating!

This is absurd. Having to take an MP4 file and re-render it as an MP4 file with a third party converter in order to use AirDrop is ridiculous. Premiere Pro isn't a free program. For it to be incapable of this basic function is nonsense. Free third party apps can accomplish this.  It needs to get fixed.

sounds like this could also be caused by apple...  a company that is not known for playing nice with other companies.  They make sure everything works nice when you stay in the apple ecosphere.

I understand how it could potentially be something on Apple's end, but I would really appreciate Adobe doing a thorough investigation to confirm it's nothing on their end. A lot of Adobe users are on Apple computers. Airdrop is a great help to workflow, and this used to work perfectly, 100% of the time. There's also the fact that if I take a file exported by an Adobe program with this issue, and then I re-export as an MP4 using a different program like Quicktime, it can then be airdropped. (But then at that point we're facing unncessary file degradation and time wasted exporting twice). That's why I suspect that something Adobe added to updates in the last year is clashing with Apple. I hope it can be made to work again!

All you have to do is lower your file size, anything over 20mb usually has problems AirDropping. Could also be that your phone doesn't have a lot of storage. Reason it works after using a third party converter is because those converters compress the video size.

Sorry, I don't think any of those things are the issue, either. I airdrop large videos frequently, sometimes over 1 GB. That works fine. My phone's storage is also wide open. And to address your last point, when an export from AME fails to Airdrop, and I use another app to re-export it — I'm not making the file size smaller. I'm just re-exporting it as an MP4 again. I've compared the before and after file sizes and they're virtually identical.

You're right. I found another solution today. When you open the video on Quicktime player, just click export in 4K or 1080p, you won't lose any quality and it'll airdrop perfectly fine as an .mov file.
