Premier not opening any save files

I have worked on a large project and put roughly 20 hours in and today when saving the project and re-opening, Premier has a loading project screen and then closes. I have attempted to open Auto Saves and previous saves and received the same thing. I updated my Premier app on my computer and worked, but after closing and reopening, I realized the same issue happened. I am now stuck and cannot open any of my saves. I have included a video that shows the issue I am having.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks in advance.

I was able to talk to Adobe Support, and the person that helped me was awesome.  After doing the following, I was able to open my saved projects.  I have to reconfigure my layout and settings, but I can live with that. I hope this helps you as well.

I'm getting the same thing, and I'm on a Mac Pro.  The workaround that I used was starting a new project and then import the saved project. It still sucks because who wants to keep creating a new project to open the current project?

I have tried that workaround and loading the new project shuts down Premier. This is very frustrating and have tried everything.

I would save a lot more to prevent this. Not sure about a fix maybe try moving the file around.

The issue is I can not reload any save prior to a ~3-hour mark. So all those saves and autosaves won't open.

This is a major problem. It's hard to believe that Adobe didn't catch this, and are they not seeing this post?

This forum is primarily user-to-user peer support, it is NOT monitored by the engineers.

 

To get to the engineers, use their UserVoice system ... that goes directly to their systems, and is read & logged in by at least one engineer. Plus, all posts there are collated and sent to the upper managers who determine budgets. Those folk live by metrics ... so give them some metrics.

 

Give ALL the data ... you computer, specs, OS, media, and workflow steps.

 

And fwiw ... on Win10, not getting any issue at all. Most Mac users I know aren't either. So it's some small subset, oft a harder thing then to puzzle out.

I'm chatting with them on the issue now.  Something this bad should be monitored by them.  just my 2 cents.

Um ... "this bad" depends entirely on how many users are suffering, of course. This is a small subset, and so wouldn't get the emphasis that something affecting far more users would get.

 

And yea, I've got a couple things on file with them that are rather to the niche side of things. They recognize the problem, but ... it's not a big thing to most other users. Sigh.

The support team was very helpful in fixing my issue.  I like to do major customization to my layout.

When searching on the web about this issue, specifically when this happened yesterday I have noticed several of posts/threads about this issue, and about 90% were similar to mine without any Adobe fix. I have sent a UserVoice to the link -(https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/41700490-premier-not-openin...).

 

I usually am able to or at least find a way to fix most issues that I come across with Adobe, but if I cannot get this resolved soon I  may have to find alternatives until Adobe patches. I am not threatening to leave Adobe, but rather voice that with the amount of money the service costs there should be someone on this.

Update:  I'm still getting the error on projects that are saved using a dual monitor setup.  I created an untitled.prproj file saved to my desktop and once I open it I can open any project.
