A similar error was due to the use of “rotation” of the clip under the titer. Tucked away rotation – all is well.

I just had the same issue with my copy of PP CS6. Fortunately I had already completed the project and had to correct 2 typos, but I kept getting the same error message and it kept crashing. I finally managed to make the corrections despite the titler issue. I was still having issues with any new projects I created and trying to use the title tool, so I ended up uninstalling/re-installing PP and now everything works fine…except that old project! Thankfully new projects are ok, just that one problem child. I don’t know.
I did update some drivers a few weeks before the issue started, but nothing to do with any of my Adobe stuff. Also, I’m working on a HP ZBook 17, I7-4700 2.40GHz, 16GB, Windows 7 Pro and plenty of HDD space.

I know this is an old post, but I recently had the same problem when I created a 720p project using Premiere’s pre-defined project settings. Every time I tried to create a title, I would get the “video fractory frame” error, and PP would crash. But if I was working in a 1080p project, all was fine.
I corrected the error by creating a “custom” project format for my 720p footage. As far as I can tell, I didn’t change any of the settings from the Adobe project settings. When I drag my 720p footage on the timeline, PP tells me it doesn’t match the sequence settings. I then choose to keep the sequence settings and the titler runs just fine.

I just experienced the same issue after opening a project that I created years ago. Same problem with the titler:
CS6 Titler is corrupted: /src/VideoFrameFactory.cpp-78CS6 Titler is corrupted: /src/VideoFrameFactory.cpp-78
The titler worked fine in newly created projects, just not in that old one.
Then I did some experimenting – copying all project items into the clipboard, and pasting them into a new projects – titler working.
Then I stripped the project down to one title and did a node by node comparison of the written .prproj files (since they are simple XML). And after some replacing I found that the issue was caused by the <WorkspaceDefinition>. When I copied that from the “newly” created project to the defective one (replacing it there) that project also worked.
I suppose that it must have been saved, when I had a different monitor configuration – and the titler has problems with it and needs a fresh one to work again.
So in the end I found this simple repair:
-Open your broken project
-Open the menu Windows / Work Area
-Click Reset current work workspace..
-Save your project
-The titler schould work again
CS6 is a bit old nowadays, so it’s doubtful, that this solution will benefit many people. But some times it is necessary to open an old project (like in my case). And I thought it’s good to know, what to do then.
