Hopefully it's okay to post here? Not quite familiar with posting here as it's first time. Anyways, I've been trying to use premiere rush to edit a video for the first time, I'm on my PC (Windows 10). My main issue right now is the footage I've put into my project, when I try to play it the sound works fine and all but the footage just shows a black screen! Until I pause it... I looked at some game footage I had that was 1080p it seems that plays back fine. Currently the footage I'm using is I think 2k footage shot from my DJI Osmo Action. It's driving me nuts I just want to get this started and done. As you can imagine it's hard to work on editing a video if you can't even see what's going on when you're trying to play it back!
Edit: I've tried clearing the cache, as well as uninstalling and reinstalling and still no fix.
Thanks for the details, and let us know what you've already tried.
Several things can cause the monitor displaying black. Here are a few things you can try to resolve it
Update your graphics card driver.
If you have Intel card https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/detect.html
If you have an Nvidia card:
Open the Rush project Go to the File menu > View > Enable "Use Optimized Clips"
Let us know if either of these solutions helps or not.
"Use Optimized Clips worked for me" 🙂
I have the exact same problem. Would love an answer.
I'm on a Windows 10 with Nvidia Geforce RTX 2060, all drivers and Os up-to-date. My video is 2.7k filmed with a DJI Mavic Mini drone and is saved in MP4 format.
I've tried the "fixes" you suggest but they did not work.
Is your project synced to Creative Cloud? If not, you will need to enable sync to use "Optimized Clips". Sorry, I should have made that clear.
If you do not want to sync your project and media you can go to the Sequence menu > Select "Prepare for Playback"
You should see a blue progress circle in the top right of the app. Once that is complete please try playing back your sequence.
Let us know how it goes. Happy Friday!
The "fixes" do not work for me either. My footage is also 2.7k filmed with a DJI Mavic Mini.
I'm using Premiere Rush on Windows 10. I'm using 2.7k video filmed with a DJI Mavic Mini. I can say that both proposed solutions work for me. "Use Optimized Clips" worked as did "Prepare for Playback". Not sure why I would want one over the other but both seem to work.
Upon further testing, if I DON'T select "Use Optimized Clips" the transitions don't render correctly. Using Optimized Clips and they do.
I know it's a bit late but just thought I'd confirm - this fix you provided (#2) worked a treat for me, thank you!
Hello, I am having the same problem - black screen and sound only, on my Android phone. Any solution for this?
I am saving the same problem too, my video is 40 min long with tons of different clips so I don't want to risk restarting all over again with local files (I'm using files from dropbox). During export it comes out as a black screen.... very sad.
Hi hirelisafordesign (nice name :))
I've seen a few reports of this happening now, although I have not been able to make it happen on my mobile devices.
Getting the following info will be helpful in trying to resolve the issue
After you export the project that shows black video, can you please send me the logs from your device?
@Delta31 - Does your issue occur in the exported file or within Rush?
Thanks for replying,
1) The device is an iPad Pro bought in 2018, software version 13.3.1.
2) The types of media are some music and voice audio, some jpgs and pngs, (all exporting fine) and talking head .mov files and .mp4 files filmed on an iPhone 7 Plus from 2017, and some .mov b-roll from a Sony camera (not mine so I don't know the make). Some videos export and some don't (a majority) from both cameras.
3) This is my second project on Rush so I can't say, although I did have a problem exporting my first project as well in Dec 2019 where the program kept crashing so I didn't resume it.
Here are the logs.
Thanks appreciate any help.
I've also had some feedback from an agent on the chat mentioning that because I uploaded my files from Dropbox, there is a bug that shows the video in a black screen on export. The solution he gave me was to wait for the next update and engineers have already been notified (but how long will that be?) My video is all ready and I want to upload it already.
The whole reason why I used Rush was because it had a function to upload from Dropbox, a feature many other video editing apps don't have. I don't want to take up a lot of local storage space as I'm sharing my iPad with a family member so I opted for Dropbox. To have it not render correctly upon export after a week and half of edit is very disheartening.
Today I just tried downloading all my files and keeping it locally, changing one of the clips to the one stored on the iPad, but on the export screen it shows black. I haven't exported it yet but I fear it may be the same result. It might not even be a Dropbox issue but just an export issue on Rush.
Just to mention the clips were filmed
In May 2019 (B-Roll)
and just now in April 2020 (Talking Head).
I have the same problems too.my video goes black during editing but sound is audible .my android device version is 10+ but though I am facing the problem.please help me out fast because I am doing my project
How to fix that problem in android please reply sir
I have the same exact issue, tried the fixes but did not work for me.
Then I tried duplicating the footage that was blackout, and it worked!
