Hi,

I want to switch from Vegas Pro to Premiere.

So I have exported my Vegas Pro project to a .prproj file for Premiere.

But when I try to load my project in Premiere, I get this error message :

    "The project could not be loaded, it may be damaged or contain outdated elements."

What can I do to fix this ?

Thanks in advance.

Vegas can create .prproj files?  That's...unusual.

Have you tried exporting an .xml out of Vegas instead?

Yes, as you can see (sorry, it's in french) :

I think I tried all the differents types of exportations. I'm gonna try again.

But if nothing works, what can I do ?

EDIT : When I import a .xml file, I get this message :

     "The importer reported a generic error."

Why ?

OK.

What specific version of PP are you running?  The most common reason for the error message you're seeing is that the project was created in a newer version, and project files aren't backwards compatible.

You can also try exporting as an Final Cut Pro/Resolve .xml file and then importing that file into Premiere.

I'm running Adobe Premiere 12.0. I just saw that there is the 12.1 version now. I'm gonna update the software and try again.

When I switched from Premiere Pro to Resolve, I tried to carry the current project over to the new software.  I just want't happy with the results, so I said "Screw it, I'm starting fresh in the new software."

It was just easier.

Sorry about this, mathieul82976064. Not sure what's going on here. What does Vegas support say on the matter? Let us know.

Thanks,
Kevin

I figured out the issue to this. Sony Vegas exports using an outdated prproj format. When I open that file using Adobe Premiere Pro CC 7.2.2, Premiere states that the file is older and most be updated - in which it does and succesfully opens.


From there I can open that file within the latest version of Adobe Premiere no problem. But for some reason, straight from Vegas to Premiere 2020, I get the error and it always crashes. It's very annoying. Is this a Sony problem or Adobe?
