I've got a few systems running 14.9 that will crash when queueing to media encoder and I've tried everything I can think of.
OS: 10.14.5 (Mojave)
Mac Pro 2013
2.7GHz 12 core Intel Xeon E5
AMD Firepro D700 6GB
Ive tried the following fixes:
a good old restart
used the pref manager to reset pref for Premiere and Media encoder
reset plugin cache
cleared the cache
Created a fresh project and imported the old project in
Created a fresh sequence and copied the media to it
Reinstalled Premiere and Media Encoder
Gave the system a PRAM wipe
I duplicated the project and used the same user created export preset for testing purposes.
Queued the SEQ in question: CRASH
Created a new SEQ in the same PRJ and queued bars and tone: SUCCESSFUL QUEUE
Created a new SEQ in the same PRJ, copied media from SEQ in question into new SEQ, and queued: CRASH
Queued the SEQ in question but reset the in/out to a front graphic only: CRASH
Created a new PRJ and new SEQ and queued bars and tone: SUCCESSFUL QUEUE
Imported the SEQ in question into the new PRJ: IMPORT FAILURE
Premiere remained responsive while media encoder launched but threw an error once encoder was ready to load the premiere project. The icing on the cake? This same PRJ/SEQ will queue successfully on a different, identically spec'd system, and the new M1 mini. At this point we are considering the nuclear option of wipe and rebuild. Open to any and all alternatives. Thoughts?
