I am creating a slideshow in Premiere so it's just a bunch of images with transitions. When exporting to any kind of format or codec, it would get stuck "Encoding 0%" forever and freeze afterwards. This doesn't happen when I put videos in the sequence. As soon as there is 1 image, the whole thing just won't export.

Any idea why?

  • Gonna need more information. Does anything max out? CPU, Memory, etc. Does it seem like the computer is trying to do something or does it just stop working altogether? – AJ Henderson Apr 28 '13 at 5:34
  • @AJHenderson CPU is maxed out. And I have to force quit the application. This is on MBP Retina with 16GB RAM – pixelfreak Apr 29 '13 at 4:45
  • Have you tried rendering the work area prior to export? Does the same thing happen when rendering work area? What happens if you try exporting through Adobe Media Encoder? – AJ Henderson Apr 29 '13 at 13:05
  • @AJHenderson The preview rendering is looking corrupted (just noise, sometimes I see my desktop in there too) But if I double-click the area, the image shows up. The preview also shows up fine on the Export window. – pixelfreak Apr 29 '13 at 20:09
  • sounds like maybe something is wrong with the rendering engine itself. Have you tried reinstalling Premiere? – AJ Henderson Apr 30 '13 at 1:42
