Projects with duplicate IDs in Production panel

Hey,

 

I'm new to the production panel. I created a new production and imported 4 existing projects into it to try and get to know this new workflow option. I'm getting an error notice that there are 2 projects in the production folder that have duplicate IDs. Is this referring to some aspect of the project itself or to particular assests within the project that are duplicated across the projects?

 

The warning directs me to a "Duplicate Projects list.txt" file in the Production folder. Which just names the 2 projects that supposedly have duplicate IDs.

Any thoughts?

First, it's helpful to have their 22 page Reference pdf for Productions, which gives information on quite a few things ...

Productions reference pdf

 

If you're getting that notification, the reason they give you a list is because you need to check the two project files. Each project file needs to have a specific ID, and somehow those two projects have the same ID.

 

So you need to open and look within the two project files. If there are differences of what is included,  remove one from the production and maybe re-add it back in so that it gets added correctly with its own project ID, or simply delete one if they are a direct copy of each other.

That worked. Thank you.

 

I made of a copy of one of the projects in a folder that was not the Production folder as a back up. Then within Premiere I moved that project to the trash. Then I deleted the trash folder in the Explorer, which deleted it within Premiere. Then imported the backed up copy of the projet, which copied it back into the Production Folder. Now I no longer get the error.

 

And thank you for the reference pdf as well.

Best,
Michael

This workaround works, of course, and thank you, but since it's Adobe Premiere that's assigning project IDs, and not me, what's going on here? Even with projects I create from scratch within a production, they are getting duplicate IDs. Adobe, YOU have a problem and your little red triangles that direct us to the list of your mistakes is anything but helpful.
