green flashes when rendering in Premiere CC 2014

Hi there,

I'm an in-house cameraman and editor for a financial business in London. I'm using the latest Macbook Pro Retina with 16gb ram, NVidia 750 graphics card. I've been using the same method for editing for past two years but have only just started editing with the very latest 2014 version of Premiere cloud. I'm mixing PM-100 and Sony EX1 footage which i've done many times before. However i've spend hours trying to get rid of green flashes that have started to appear on the renders.

These seem consistent with using the PMW-100 as the EX1 footage seems ok. I can replace the error clips with something else but then the render error moves to another part of the rendering.

These flashes can't be seen in playback within the editor, only after rendering.

I'm trying to work out if its the camera, camera drives, Macbook Pro Retina or Premiere.

Can anyone help shed light on this?

I was having the same problem, and couldn't find a fix. It was also screwing up certain effects, particularly warp stabilizer every time I rendered or exported. Finally, I tried changing the renderer from Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration (Open CL) to Mercury Playback Engine Software Only, and it worked like a charm. Go to File -> Project Settings -> General and select the renderer from the dropdown menu. Make sure to also change the renderer when you export. Using Adobe Media Encoder, be sure to select "Mercury Playback Engine Software Only" in the dropdown menu next to "Renderer" before you export.

This has completely eliminated the problem for me.

I'm experiencing very similar issues i.e. green flashes after rendering clips. I'm using some still images and stock footage so I believe it's a problem within Premier Pro. Not with your camera or Macbook. I'm hoping we can get and answer to this directly from Adobe and maybe the issue will be addressed in future updates.

Good luck,
Darryll

Same problem. Green flashes in my renders. Nothing I tweak removes them. Deadline fast approaching. Paying a monthly fee for CC. Please help.

I saw the same problems in the middle of bigger issues with new graphics cards, two were defective.  (CC2014 current, NVIDIA Quadro K2000 on a Windows 7 Intel i7 chipset with 32GB RAM) I also had frozen replay and the render line stayed green, and re-rendering would not fix, I had to close and restart, as well as reduce to 1/4 resolution on playback.

And I replaced PSD stills with tifs, that seemed to help a little, but I'm not certain.  Dropping the playback resolution did help.  I just got a new k2200 video card yesterday, and hope that fixes it.

Switching to CUDA rendering in AME instead of OpenCL fixed it for me.

I replaced my (second) defective K2000 card with a K2200 and the problem disappeared.  I assume it is a graphics card bandwidth issue, but I'm no expert.  The other problems I saw were crashing, freezing and the render line color not reflecting reality.  All gone.  The simplest way I found to minimize it was to decrease the playback resolution, that helped a lot and was immediate.
