Sorry for the trouble.
1. Have you tried to save the project to a different location?
2. Is there an error message after the crash?
3. Please check the permissions fixing permissions problem that impedes start of Adobe applications | Creative Cloud blog by Adobe
I have tried, but I often replace the saved file with the same name. It happens no matter where I save the files.
There is an error after the crash.
That link just goes to the main welcome screen.
I am also experiencing the same issue. I am running a
27 inch iMac late 2015
4 GHz i7 Core
AMD Radeon R9 M390 2048 MB
My scratch, media cache and project footage are on separate SSD's. I haven't changed anything about my workflow from the previous version and it's like I can't save anything at all to the 2018 version of Pr CC.
Premiere Pro 2018 has a memory problem. The auto-save files grow rapidly in size until the app freezes due to a lack of memory.
Activity Monitor shows the app's memory use keeps growing until the max (36 GB) is reached.
Then it freezes. After that, all previous auto-save copies show the same symptoms.
Downgraded to Premiere Pro 2017 won't open the saved project. Same as with auto-save versions due to incompatibility.
Have used AdobeCreativeCloudCleanerTool with no result.
De-installed and re-installed several times with no result.
I am now stuck with a project that I cannot finish
Yep, same thing happens for me. When I press CTRL-S on a new project, Premiere just seems to freeze. When I switch to a different program then try to go back to it, it won't appear.
I try to close it using the task bar in windows 10, and it does nothing. I need to go into the task manager and close it from there, where I can see it's sucking up a tremendous amount of memory.
I thought I should leave it for a while, but even after 10 minutes on a small project it still is just stuck.
I got the same. Click Save As and when you re open it you get a blank timeline and nothing saved.. I went to my settings/preferences and changed the auto save to 1 minute (yes it is annoying). work on or finish my project and let it update one more time then click save as and name the project something different (yes, annoying). This works so far. If it crashes again then open your last updated Auto Save project and at least you can get some work done.. This trick has taken almost all of my morning to experiment with, so now I'm only 3 hours behind.. Thanks Adobe!
I just lost 2 hours of work because of this same problem. And this is the 4th time I've tried to save a project. At first I thought it was because I was copying some clips to the new project, so I deleted all my attempted projects and started fresh. Imported my video.Save As closes my project screen and EVERYTHING has disappeared from the Timeline.
