Whenever I export a video from Premiere (either directly from within Premiere or Adobe Encoder), the progress bar will get to 100%, but then just sit there for a LONG time before the window closes and the file is ‘finalized’. Example–I just got done with a 50-minute export, but I have been waiting for over 30 minutes for the encoding window to close. If I look in the folder where the exported file is, it shows the main file as well as a file with an extension of ‘mp4.xx.xx’.
Why is it doing this? I want to get the file uploaded to Youtube ASAP, but I feel I need to wait until everything is closed correctly. (and just as I was typing this post, it finally did so)
