Hi there!

Premiere and Media Encoder have been giving me a lot of trouble lately, both returning the same error code.

Here's a screenshot of the error:

wtf.PNG

My sequence is a 4K 24p created directly from the "New Sequence from clip" feature. I heavily used Warp Stabilizer and Lumetri Color. I've disable the stabilizer, yet it still crashes when I'm trying to work on color grading.

Here are my computer specs:

i5-6600K

GTX 960 3GB VRAM

16GB DDR4 RAM

Windows 10

OS on an SSD, everything else on separate HDDs.

Can someone please help me identify the source of my problem? And let me know if you need more information about my project sequence or anything!

Thank you in advance! : )

Ok ... first question ... is this the same on different projects, or have you only been working the one project?If only on this project, create a new project, via the Media Browser panel import a few assets, and test there. If on multiple projects created in this version of PrPro, well ... skip that.Next, what's the media involved in your projects? Frame-size/rate and created by what ... camera, phone/device, screen-capture?And last ... do you have the same problem if you go into the project set...

Next, what's the media involved in your projects? Frame-size/rate and created by what ... camera, phone/device, screen-capture?

And last ... do you have the same problem if you go into the project settings and set Mercury Acceleration to "Software Only"?

Hey Neil,

It's all the same project, I've imported my Premiere project into AE for further editing and met with the error when I tried to export out with AME. I've done this all before, the problem has just shown up now.

I also get this issue when I try to render previews in Premiere, but it only seems to happen with clips that have Lumetri Color and Stabilizer stacked.

I use a Panasonic GH5, shooting 3840x2160 UHD 4K. I shoot in 8 and 10-bit 60fps and 24fps respectively. I haven't tried the software only—I'll give that a shot!

Hey Neil, I exported it using software only, and it worked!

Thanks so much for your help, cheers!

I had the same problem and found it to be a corrupt .png file that had some motion and a mask on it.  I deleted it, brought a new one in. Created a new comp, replacing the old with the new and it rendered fine.

I have had the same issue periodically over the last while -

Originally, this was happening to me when I used LUTS that i had made myself, and imported into Premiere. This was fixed, when I exported my colour settings as a Premiere LUT. I now use Premiere LUTS that I made myself, and have been for about a year.

As of this week, (premiere was recently updated to Version 12.1.2 Build 69 ) I've been getting the error code again. My issue isn't with rendering or exporting (for now, it was in the past), it's that random clips in the timeline will go blank until I remove effects, and reapply them again. Issue temporarily resolves if I restart Premiere, but doesn't fix it. Creating a new project and importing the sequence does not change anything either. Switching to software rendering gives me the lovely red and white checkerboard, instead of just blank clips. What's very weird is that I exported this project, and have now gone back to it to make changes, and these errors are suddenly all over my timeline.

Any help would be much appreciated!

That's a frustrating issue, and what you're getting is just ... weird. Wow!

File this over on the UserVoice system, where they track (and now often even respond!) to bugs ... it's vastly improved.

Update,

Now, if I have a clip selected in my timeline, and just click in to the Lumetri module, the clip disappears. But it's not every clip, and there doesn't seem to be a pattern. If I remove all effects, it returns - but if I simply just click to adust exposure (no LUTS or other effects at all) it goes blank in the timeline.

Um ... wow ... that's so unique I've never heard of that behavior before. An engineer approach might be to say you should feel special as he/she sits down to examine this.

Most editors would prefer to deal rather harshly with such thoughts however.

Kevin-Monahan  ... assistance please?

And I do hope you update your UserVoice filing with this information. This is so bizarre, want this puzzled out.

Here is the solution! It has to do with GPU. You must change in File->Project Settings->General->Renderer to ...Software only, next delete preview files in a project folder and here you go!

I have this issue as well. Using custom LUTs for a project. I've tried disabling the LUTs and the issue still arises. At first I only had the issue in AME so was exporting from Premiere, but now I am also getting it from Premiere. Both are updated. When I monitor the export in Task Manager, the GPU is maxing out in the 80-99% level. 

I've tried many different things to figure out the issue, only thing that has worked is exporting in pieces and stitching together to reexport. These are only 10-30 min videos. I have some simple effects like luma curve masks, blur, cross fades, some audio denoise effect. That's it. I'm working with multicam sequences and 1080 proxy files.

 

The error messages I get are -1609629690 and -1609629695

Tim,

 

Where are your LUTs stored on the computer?

 

What made them ... ?

The LUTs are custom made by the company I am editing for. I dropped them in C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Media Encoder 2020\Lumetri\LUTs\Creative and in the same spot for premiere. Other people editing with these luts haven't reported issues. I was able to use them successfully up until yesterday for some reason when using premiere. I tried exports with them disabled and had the same issue. I also have a blackmagic effect on masterclips that I disabled (but since I'm working with proxies, the black magic reader is not important for my editing)

Never, ever, EVER put LUTs in the program/package folders! It's asking for all sorts of headaches. The app uses relative use of those folders ... as in, the 15th one down in computer-sorted order. NOT by name!  And it expects the same things to be in the various apps.

 

Use the system provided for adding LUTs into the system. The following chart shows the areas to use, and for some reason they make you add the final folders, the Technical (Basic tab use) and Creative (Creative tab use). Park them there, and they will pop up in the appropriate list drop-down.

 

I add a prefix system to mine so they always come up grouped as I want at the top of the list.

 

So remove them from those folders, put them in the proper ones, and apply from there.

 

The other thing ... is if you're using the BlackMagic plugin, well ... that one can be problematic at times. I finally gave up and got the Autokroma BRAW Studio plugins. So ... realistically, this could be an issue also.

Well I'll be damned. I took your advice and moved the LUTs all to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\LUTs and created the two folders, placing my LUTs in Creative. That works. Thank you.

 

I still have the export issue on certain sequences with the AME exports failing. I've disabled blackmagic in premiere but that had no effect I can see. Maybe I'll try uninstalling. After rendering one sequence it sent fine to AME and exported, but that was a sequence with less effects applied. If I don't render they just fail. I think effects are part of the problem but I haven't had issues with effects in the past so unsure why now, and I'm not adding anything crazy, just some simple crossfades, blurs and vignettes. I'm guessing the proxy linking and/or blackmagic and LUTs are the source of my ordeal.

 

I appreciate your help, Neil!

I had occacional issues of oddness, and finally Nicolas from Autokroma asked me if the BM plugin was still listed in the project plugins. Yea, it was, hadn't even seen it, though I'd not used that in months. Had to go hunt it down & kill it, dump all cache files, then go through my projects. A couple I needed to create a new project file & then import the old project.

 

Took care of some of the crazies at least.

No clue what's happening on your machine, as you haven't included any details.

 

What media are you working with, what are you doing to it for effects, is this direct from Ae or a dynamically linked comp from Ae on a Premiere sequence, does it render directly from Premiere, and when whatever doesn't work doesn't work, what were you doing, and what potential error message or behavior occurred instead of what you expected?

The underlying reason for this error is running out of VRAM for your GPU accelerated effects. The "Around Timecode" is usually the failure point. If you are working with big resolutions, you simply need to throw a bigger GPU at it and your issue will be solved. Using a smart rendering workflow, you can workaround your underpowered system by attacking at a different angle (rendering up front, and then using those renders for output - therefore, bypassing any GPU limitations that crop up during export). I hope that makes sense.

Thanks,
Kevin
