    can you do two things?

    1. take a screen shot of your Premiere timeline.

    2. post up one of these videos that you’re creating.

    Your project is very unique and niche. It’s almost impossible to envision what it is that you’re actually doing.

    In this thread, I read this:

    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!)

    Setup :

    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.

    An easy way to determine if you’re audio is triggering the problem is to bounce your timeline audio to audition and then bring a stereo mix back into Premiere.

    Okay, so further reading has shown me that Adobe Media Encoder CS6 is awful and doesnt work properly.

    The settings you should have is GPU acceleration. Maximum Render Quality. Export NOT Queue.

    And I just checked Edit>Preferences>General: ‘Render audio when rendering video’. Then I pressed Enter. Now its rendering my audio. I will see if I can get a fast export now…


    30 second export for every song!!!!! Im back baby! Perfect Quality ☺ ☺

    Your next order of business to upgrade your Adobe to Adobe cc. You’re using ancient software.

    Whats the benefit? Dont you have to keep paying money forever or something weird?

    Are you a professional editor or hobbyist? If you’re a professional, you owe it to your clients to be up to date on the software.

    My only clients are me, myself and I. I hope my experiments taught you some things. You appear to want to remain the authority but I had to solve it all myself. You didnt react to my industriousness, only gave more advice. I hope others can find my work useful.
