I think the problem’s solved!
This took dozens of exports and deleting rendered files and trying to figure it out and i think i got it nailed!
It has to do with forcing AME to render audio!
This happens if you’ve made a change in audio in your timeline and did not render it before exporting.
(I have the option to render audio after video disabled for ease of use)
FIX : Last step before exporting : “Render Audio” and whatever you do DO NOT cancel it.
Once canceled it freezes if you try rendering it again and may even crash Premiere.
I suspect it passes a completed file to AME if you allow it to complete without interrupting
otherwise AME is forced to render audio itself
(maybe what we call “hang” is actually a background audio render attempt by AME that takes bloody ages or fails completely!)
Adobe Premiere CS6 and AME CS6
tried on both AMD AND INTEL setups
I have been clicking audio gain normalize peaks to zero on every song with very bad results. It seems like AME needs to encode audio if its not rendered by Premiere before an export. This is stupid given that none of those audio files are within the work area, but rest assured, its Adobe’s fault. Normalizing audio gain peaks to zero decibels makes some songs max out at -20 decibels and others exceed 0. Its clumsy and broken code. I might have to redo all the audio levels from scratch if its leading to all this trouble with no benefit.
