Hi everyone,

A few days ago, a updated my Premiere Pro CC (2015.3)

Before this update my Premiere and my project worked well !

Now, I have an error when i want to export my sequence.

This message comes directly after lauching the export.

ERROR.png

I've tested different solutions (other formats, import my sequence into a new project, reinitialised my presets, render, doesn't work with Media Encoder ...)

I dont' see this problem anywhere... Maybe someone can help me ?

Thank you !

Alright, so I'm new to this Adobe Premiere world, but this problem was totally terrible. I'm not sure if this will work for the rest of you, but I tried almost everything I saw here & it still didn't work for me.Want to know what DID work though?I changed the name of the project file to not include any symbols like - or / and voila! It worked.Stupid, haha but praise God! Hope it helps!

I've seen others report this issue, and even missed a deadline myself because of it.

Unfortunately, I don't have any reliable solutions as yet.

I hope is not to late. I had the same issue. The problem was that Premiere pro was not saving my project for some reason. I  went to File and then I clicked "saved as" and then it worked.

Hi Melissa,

How weird that File > Save did not work for you. I prefer to do a File > Save as soon as I start a project. I like to make periodic backups of this file with File > Save a Copy. Try it out!

 

Thanks,
Kevin

Hi Juliend,

Please run a small test, create a new sequence and remove audio from that.

Try exporting your sequence again (without Audio).

Thanks,

Kulpreet Singh

Hi ronschloss1,

I would suggest you the same workaround, exporting your audio and video separately.

Thanks,

Kulpreet, please be more specific.  It's great that I can now export my videos with no audio, but most videos kind of NEED the audio included.  How does this help?  How is this a work-around. 

I've exported my video with no audio, now what?  How do I get the video WITH audio?!?

Please advise.  Since the upgrade, this doesn't work on my laptop or my PC, and I have a project due today.  It's done, I just can't export it.

Hi cnSam,

I am sorry that you are not able to export videos (with audio) from Premiere Pro.

Are you getting the same error (error compiling movie)?

Thanks,

Kulpreet Singh

I figured out that the voice was fine, it was the music track that was causing it to crash. So I edited the music track in audition, converted it from mp3 to wav and brought it back into the project. It was then able to export.

I use these audio files (.mp3) all the time, so there is something wrong with the newest version of Premiere, but it seems the workaround is to convert the audio to .wav and bring it back into the project.

I converted my audio file to .WAV but still get the error. I've tried everything i can think of for the past 2 hours. Still can't export. And i'm not exporting without the audio. That's just not how it works. The audio is part of the video. So please if anyone has a fix i'd appreciate it if you post it here. I'm waiting...

You get old before someone answers in this forum. Anyway, after days of researching i came across an answer stating to move the project folder somewhere else on the hdd then it would work. And so i moved it, renamed it and Holly Cow "IT WORKED". Hope i helped, now the Adobe support Team knows the answer and they can pass it along.

This worked for me as well. Moving the project folder to a different location solved the error code 6 message and allowed me to export both the video and audio. Thank you.

This worked for me as well, after moving the project to a different folder I was able to export both audio and video

without any issues (after attempting all the above solutions which didn't work for me).

This solution worked for me. The voice recording was fine; the music file was causing an issue. Converted my WAV music background to an mp3 file via audition (opposite file type solution - but either way this worked).

Nevermind. It worked at first but now is not letting me export with the music in background. Going to try to export it without music file. Then, try to add it to exported video in either Pr or Ae. This is horribly inconvenient and annoying.

Yer im still getting this issue with none of the fixes above working. If anyone has figured it out that would be really helpful. I work in a school and this is happening on a lot of students work and causing a bit of a nightmare.
