  • CS6 PP video Preview error, Error compiling movie

    Posted by Jim Watt on June 7, 2012 at 12:35 am

    In CS6 I’m getting a dialogue box titled Video Preview Error. the message is “Error Compiling Movie, Unknown Error”. This is in a project I imported for CS 5.5, but also happened when I made a new sequence in this same project to do a warp stabilize.

    I had to make a new sequence since the warp stabilizer is giving me an error that my clip must match the sequence settings. this was a DVCPRO HD clip on an XDCAM EX HQ timeline.

    I’m exporting the finished movie (50 minutes) and will see how it renders out in the encoder.

    this is on a MacPro with the new Kona drivers installed.

    Thanks for any suggestions…jw

    Yeah I had this same error pop up on me as well. What did to get around the problem was 1. Disable any effects on the clips then try a render preview. If that didn’t work I would select a different clip, disable its effect then do a render preview. Once the render preview was successful, I would enable the effects on the clips then do render preview. Most times this worked for me.

    Aha! I finally solved something on these forums.

    The problem was that the HD where I was storing Adobe preview files etc was full. Somehow Premiere wasn’t able to tell me what the problem was, but when I tried, instead, to export, thinking I might deke around the render problem, it said the drive was almost full. There were 289k (!) left on there drive so I cleared up some space and my power to render came back!

    Another technique that I found useful is create a new sequence that is configured to the settings to which you want to export. Copy and paste everything into that new sequence then export
