We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
We are investigating an issue with Premiere Pro/Adobe Media Encoder (v 14.0.1) where the export gets stuck at 0%. This issue seems to be related to markers. Here are the steps that can be followed to address this issue.
Note: This procedure is only applicable if you are using makers in the sequence.
The easy way:
Select all the markers from the timeline that you are trying to export and delete them (https://helpx.adobe.com/in/premiere-pro/using/markers.html#find_move_and_delete_markers). Once the markers are deleted try to export (you may want to create a backup of the project with the markers before deleting them, just in case if you need those markers later).
If you wish to drill down to the specific issue:
Once you find a marker that has marker_guid listed in the Flash Cue Point section, delete that entry.
To do this enable the option for Flash Cue Point.
Select marker_guid and click the - (minus) button.
Hope this helps in solving the issue. Let us know if you have any questions.
I can reproduce this. I added a marker, enabled Flash Cue Point and clicked OK. I then double click the marker and added "marker_guid" manually and clicked OK. By doing this the export never started.
Once removed, everything worked as expected.
Thank you for this workaround solution. I do hope Adobe is working on fixing this in a way that does not involve deleting markers.
Agree. Thanks for the workaround. This helped get my project at least to a point where it will encode. It's so unfortunate that the Adobe team can't figure some of this stuff out before they release updates. Every single time I update AME something happens and I'm out 2+ days just trying to research a solution. Very uncool. But, hey, at least my 6min video is now encoding and should be done in...hmmm.... maybe 2+ hours?! Gah.
-- Update --
Once I removed the markers in Pr from the main sequence, the render worked. It also didn't take as long to render as it originally said. On another note: When I added markers in the source panel window that didn't seem to have any effect on the rendering snag. It's just when the markers are applied in the main sequence window. At least that's what happened for me.
Yes, we are working on getting it sorted as soon as possible.
Thanks for your patience.
Glad to hear the cause of this nasty bug has been discovered. Unfortunately I have too many markers logging interviews, so a roll-back to AME 14.0 was my route of choice, but looking forward to a fix on this issue. Cheers!
I am trying to download the AME 14, I have the 2020 version. How do I do this? Im dealing with the same problem.
I can confirm that this "workaround" worked for my team. We've only had this particular issue with a computer running Premiere 14.0.1 - the issue does not occur with version 14.0.0
I can confirm that. Encorder non-starts have always been an occasional thing (~10-15% of the time?) over the last ~5 years I've used it. But immediately after updating to 14.0.1, my marker-containing exports fail to start in Encoder 100% of the time. And immediately upon reverting to 14.0, Encoder starts just fine.
Removing markers is a terrible work-around for me, compared to simply reverting to perfectly functional 14.0.
Same here. Thanks for the workaround. Hope a fix soon.
The Premiere Pro / Media Encoder team have identified the cause of this issue and we are working on a fix to be released as soon as possible.
Is there an estimation for when an update to fix the issue will be released?
I'm having the same issue. My exporting process gets stuck at 9% and remaining time increases as much as 6 hours. I currently have version 14.0.3, any estimated time to fix this issue??
This is a nightmare. I cant work on the project in an earleir version of Premiere becuase it was saved to this most recent update.
I hope it gets fixed in next couple of days or I miss my deadline.
Confirming this worked for me. Whew, glad this workaround was posted. I had just three markers and both Encoder and Export from Premiere (ctrl-M) had otherwise been locked up at 0% without deletion of the markers in the main sequence and dependent sequences from a multicam shoot.
WHEW! Thank you so much for this work around. Had a deadline to meet and was able to because of this. Fingers crossed the team can find a fix in the next update. I appreciate the hard work you all put into your products - THANK YOU!!
Thank you, this workaround got my project moving again.
I assumed these show-stopping bugs would be worked out by now.
We figured this out at my company. It occurred when opening to export projects that had been converted from a previous version. The markers that had the marker_guid entry were markers that had had their color changed. Our work around has been to delete the markers for export, but not save the project with them deleted.
Yes you are right, the funny part is that when you delete the markers, you musn't save the project otherwise it's stuck again on export eventhough you deleted them… Even more strange…
Same problem on 14.0.1 on a Mac (10.15.3), but when I erased all markers, it's even more stuck on export, before I had a neverending progress, and now I have nothing… Another bug ?
Alas, I altered all the markers only to find they had reverted to containing the 'marker_guid' entries upon re-opening them. Have deleted all markers and STILL it will not encode. Is a fix out yet or do I have to re-assemble the entire project?
Until the bug is fixed, my team has found it better to revert your Premiere back to version 14.0.0, this hasn't caused any compatibility issues, and that bug isn't present in this version.
Trying that now. No dice. Fails in a different fashion though. Oh well.
The above fix has worked for me, but only after I removed a lower thirds motion graphics template from the sequence. Looks like that's ANOTHER bug to resolve. Many thanks to all on this thread.
