Encore and Premiere CS3 hanging while opening - EMERGENCY

I try opening Premiere or Encore on my Mac they just hang while opening ANY project file that is dated before today. I can make a new project, save it and open it...but any project made before today freezes both programs. They start loading the project and then it just hangs, with the colored wheel staying on screen until Force Quit is used. I have months of work done on this project and am literally 2-3 days away from completion, and backup projects won`t load either.  I need some serious help on getting this resolved before I lose my mind and seriously contemplate quitting film altogether.
I have 3 gigs of ram, 2 x 2.66 Ghz dual core Intel xeon and CS3 

One thing to try... create a new project and then import the old project into the new project
Other than that... this is for the Windoze world, but some of the steps may help

  • Adobe Premiere CS3 will not open!

    Adobe premiere CS3 will not open.  When I click on the Adobe icon on my desktop, I get this message:  This application has failed to start because prm.dll was not found.  I've tried several things such as:  uninstalling the program then reinstalliing it.  I tried to open Adobe by clicking on one of my projects by opening MY Computer from start on the taskbar, then click on c drive, etc. but it will not open.  Before I started getting the error message stated above, when I clicked on the icon, the program would load to the point of showing the top portion of the page (file, edit, etc.) then stop.  It would never fully load.  HELP!!!!!   I'm in the middle of trying to meet several deadlines.

    First, search your system for every instance of prm.dll. See if you have one (could be corrupt, but a Repair Install should have repaired it) in your PrPro CS3 folder hierarchy. Do you have any more? How do the dates and sizes compare to the one, if there is one, in PrPro? Here is a LINK to a .dll site. I do not know this site, so cannot even comment on their .dll's. I'd do the first suggestion, well - first.
    Also, I do not know this .dll. It could be a VST from an Audio editing program, or similar. Some of these have been known to bring PrPro to its knees, at launch. Might be worthwhile to check into it a bit more.
    Also, take a look at Event Viewer. This ARTICLE will give you some tips on what to look for. Could be more happening, than the error message might lead one to believe.
    Good luck,

  • Photoshop CS3 hangs on open -  NO DVD inserted!

    I just installed 10.5.2 and NOW PS hangs at open. The other apps had a problem but dragging out the plist for them corrected them. I tried opening PS with another and with that user it crashed and gave a box to notify Adobe.
    I also ran the CS3 update and it would not install. I tried the version que update and that did not seem to help.
    Both softwares are driving me nuts.

    get rid of Version Cue.

  • DVD SP 2.05 hangs while opening file

    DVD Studio Pro 2.0.5 hangs while opening a project file that until recently worked fine.
    The "hang" seems to accur while DVD SP is opening the project's menus. The dialog box "Loading Project" appears and progresses until it reaches "Loading Menus", then it hangs until I click "Cancel", then DVD SP crashes.
    I trashed DVD SP's prefs, no success. I even tried to move the project's menu files offline, without success - DVD SP even hangs when the referenced assets are not available to it. All project files that are variations of the main file also hang, all at the same time. I don't think the project files are corrupted, more likely something wrong with DVD SP? Any ideas? Reinstall? I'm a little worried about the project files - lots of work is at stake...
    Thanks

    Previously when this has happened for folks it has been related to font management. If you have turned off a font that DVDSP uses as a default for the menus then it won't be able to create the menu when it loads. The solution is to turn on the fonts again.
    Are you using font management software?

    hello,
    I have the following problem:
    Indesign CS5.5 CS6 and hang up several times a day when opening documents on. the user can not make more in the program and must kill the process. After reopening the document opens without problems (probably the recovery file). I have tried all known solutions (delete Preferences, user with admin privileges, delete caches, safe boot, ...)
    here a hang report, which meanwhile has been created.

  • Can't run (Media Encoder or Encore) and Premiere Pro

    I finished a sequence, started up Media Encoder, then began editing a new sequence with Premierer.
    The result was that after a while, Media Encoder "Not Responding".
    I started Media Encoder again and this time I left the room to watch TV.
    Media Encoder built the AVI file correctly.
    Also Encore died when I tried to use Premiere at the same time.
    Is that the rule with CS4 applications?

    Harm
    In EN once I click on the Build button to begin building a DVD it will take more than 30 minutes before the DVD comes out.
    In the mean time I would like to fire up PR to start editing some other project.
    If that is not something I can do then I can use my KVM switch to go to my old PC and produce artwork for the DVD case.
    On another topic, I am in the process of making a BluRay DVD with Encore and when I clicked on the Preview button, instead of getting the neat little window that allows me to run a simulation of the DVD menu, I got a huge version of that menu that I could not manuver to get to the controller buttons.

  • Photoshop CS3 Hangs when opening files

    PS hangs when opening, duplicating images. The longer it's on the longer the wait. I'm talkin' 15 - 20 seconds. Deleted the prefs multiple times.
    Anybody else having this problem?

    Set your default printer to something local, that is actually hooked up.
    When Photoshop creates the document, it asks for the default printer information - and your printer driver is taking a nap while trying to connect to the printer.

  • CS3 hangs when opening CS1 document

    I am having difficulty opening a document created in inDesign CS with CS3.
    The status bar will read 'opening file' or 'converting data,' depending on whether I first open CS3 before selecting 'open' from the program menu or simply click on the file icon to open it. Either way, the status bar fills about 1/3 of the way and then hangs.
    The document will still open in the original InDesign CS.
    Any thoughts?

    Open the IDCS exported .inx file back in IDCS itself, then save it to a different location or with a modified name than the old IDCS file. Then try opening this new IDCS file with IDCS3.
    Al
    Edit: Be sure to have Color Management turned off when trying to open the .inx files. That may be why it was hanging up on you.

  • Encore and Premiere 6.5

    Hi.
    I have Premiere 6.5 and want to get Encore and a DVD burner to produce DVDs.
    When I export now, there is no "Export to DVD" function in Premiere - just export to tape, etc.
    Does that change when you install Encore?
    Is it possible to export to DVD from Premiere 6.5? Or would I export from Encore?
    Thanks,
    John Huston

    The Export to DVD feature was added to Premiere Pro. It is not available in 6.5, even if you install Encore.
    Using 6.5, you will have two basic workflow options. You can export the timeline to an .m2v file, which Encore can then import and use to make a DVD. Or you can export to an .avi file, which Encore can also import.
    One advantage to going the .avi route is that Encore has an Automatic transcode setting that will make sure the video fits on the disk. You won't need to do any bitrate calculations, and I think the quality comes out very nice.

  • Canon Vixia HG21 and Premiere CS3

    We just purchased a Canon Vixia HG21 and are unable to import the footage into Premiere CS3. Files are of .m2ts extension. Is Premiere CS3 not able to read these? Is CS4 better or able to? What are our options?

    we have upgraded to CS4 and the program still can't import the m2ts files this camera generates
    I assume that this means that you have the full-paid version of CS4. Is that correct? The reason that I ask is because the trial version will not handle anything MPEG.
    Now, there have been reports of full-paid versions of CS4 reverting to the trial version, with the updating to CS4.2. If this has happened, again, you will not have support for anything MPEG. One test would be to find an MP3, or some other MPEG Asset, and try to Import that. If you get a failure, you likely have a trial version now. See Below:
    The "cure" is to de-Activate your version and THEN uninstall. Run the Adobe Clean Script CS4 3 - 4 times, rebooting between each. Next step is to install the CS4 version, Activate again and then apply all updates to CS4.2. We do not know what causes a few updates to change the installation to the trial, but it happens too often. The above steps, in that order, work for all.
    Good luck, and let us know if that helps.

  • Encore CS3 - Hangs While Transcoding.

    Hello all,
    Thanks for your time reading over this issue I am experiencing with Adobe Encore CS3 (ver 3.01.008).
    I have had an intermittent problem with Encore for a long time, involving the transcoding process. The only way I have been able to get over this hurdle is to use a friend's machine for the 'building process' in Encore CS4. But, I have faith that Encore CS3 isn't a waste of a product, and would love to have this issue fixed.
    I am currently producing a dual-layer DVD, that will host up to 42 timelines. I can successfully plan the entire project, linking menus to links, links to timelines etc. The only issue I encounter is when I transcode all of my assets before building the DVD disc. I am able to transcode about 80% of my assets successfully - after that - Encore will cease to carry out the transcoding process as it should.
    For example, after transcoding about 80% of all the assets, Encore will start transcoding one more asset, transcoding it's video and audio streams, but then ceases to 'import' it back into the project as a transcoded asset. It will simply 'hang' on the 'importing' process. I have tried encoding single untranscoded assets since this issue arose, but each individual, remaining, untranscoded asset will hang (ie, does not show any activity in Task Manager in either CPU usage, or Memory usage) while 'importing' in the transcoding process.
    Any help would be hugely appreciated, and I will try to provide you with as much information as possible to assist me.
    I am currently running on:
    Win7 x64 RC1 (This issue has also happened to me in Vista x64)
    Athlon X2 64 3800+ 2.0Ghz
    2GB DDR400 << (I understand this is a very little amount of memory in comparison to what most users will have, but I have been able to create other large Encore CS3 projects in the past just fine. I believe that my issue as stated above is not caused by my hardware configuration)
    Four HDDs, each with at least 200GB free on each
    No, I do not have Nero on my machine, and any previous installations have been clean-sweeped off the machine using Nero's CleanSweep tool.
    I am also running Encore CS3 in administrator mode.
    Cheers, thanks again for your time.
    - Andrew

    Andrew,
    Though it sounds too late to help with Encore, there are a couple of things to think about. That 80% Transcoding issue throws up a few possibilities to me:
    1.) heat buildup in the CPU - Transcoding is very CPU intensive
    2.) power supply not up to the task, or going bad
    3.) HDD filling up to a critical point - that slowdown and then hang could be a sign of this, as HDD's loose a good deal of their efficiency near the 75% full point, and will shut down, as 100% is approached.
    4.) something in the Project at about that point?
    5.) something else entirely
    Good luck, and happy authoring, regardless of which program you use.

  • RoboHelp 10 - Hanging While Opening as User on Windows 7

    OS: Windows 7 Enterprise x64
    Product: RoboHelp 10
    I have setup the 64bit install of Robohelp using the application manager. After a full install, when a user trys to open Robohelp is just hangs at "intializing user data". If I right click and "Run as Administrator" and enter credentials to run as a local Administrator, it works fine. We can not have the users do this.
    Is there something that is a known issue or something I am missing?
    Thanks

    Are you perhaps confusing what the users of the Output created by RoboHelp will need to do with the users of the RoboHelp HTML application will need to do?
    While I'm unaware of RoboHelp needing to be run as an Admin to use the editing environment, there should be no need for this to happen by average users of the output created by RoboHelp.

  • Safari hangs while opening specific page

    So when I try to open one specific page (which is working because I could open it with Google Chrome) safari hangs in the middle of the blue bar and I can't open any other pages, it's like the internet had stopped working
    I already tried to reset it, deleted the files in the hidden library, disable plugins etc
    any ideias? Thanks
    PS: I'm using Safari 6.0.2 and Mountain Lion 10.8.2

    Please read this whole message before doing anything. This procedure is a test, not a solution. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it. Step 1 The purpose of this step is to determine whether the problem is localized to your user account. Enable guest logins* and log in as Guest. For instructions, launch the System Preferences application, select Help from the menu bar, and enter “Set up guest users” (without the quotes) in the search box. Don't use the Safari-only “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac.” While logged in as Guest, you won’t have access to any of your personal files or settings. Applications will behave as if you were running them for the first time. Don’t be alarmed by this; it’s normal. If you need any passwords or other personal data in order to complete the test, memorize, print, or write them down before you begin. Test while logged in as Guest. Same problem? After testing, log out of the guest account and, in your own account, disable it if you wish. Any files you created in the guest account will be deleted automatically when you log out of it. *Note: If you’ve activated “Find My Mac” or FileVault, then you can’t enable the Guest account. The “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac” is not the same. Create a new account in which to test, and delete it, including its home folder, after testing. Step 2 The purpose of this step is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party system modifications that load automatically at startup or login. Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards. Boot in safe mode* and log in to the account with the problem. The instructions provided by Apple are as follows: 
    Shut down your computer, wait 30 seconds, and then hold down the shift key while pressing the power button.
    When you see the gray Apple logo, release the shift key.
    If you are prompted to log in, type your password, and then hold down the shift key again as you click Log in.
    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, and some things won’t work at all, including wireless networking on certain Macs.
    The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
    *Note: If FileVault is enabled, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t boot in safe mode.
    Test while in safe mode. Same problem?
    After testing, reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of steps 1 and 2.

  • Premiere Encore and Premiere Clip Notes Problem

    I am having a problem that appears when exporting from Premiere (CS4) to Encore or to Clip Notes.
    The opening of my projects is the FBI warning still; this transitions to an imported 'produced by' animation; this then transitions to a 'directed by' still which then a dip to black for moment; then street sounds start -- all so far so good. Very quickly after the street sounds start in black, the actual video footage commences and this is where the problem is.
    What one sees is a small image off to the lower right of the screen - the image that should be in full screen is re-positioned off screen to the right and is also lower. The only image one is seeing is the upper left quadrant of the image one should be seeing, the rest of the image, being off-screen, is not seen. This occurs for 16 frames then it snaps to the correct position.
    Key points:
    This is not occurring in Premiere. It occurs ONLY after exporting to Encore through the ADL (watching it in Preview), AND it occurs when it is exported to Clip Notes.
    It does NOT occur if the file is exported to Encoder then checked by burning it to DVD via a third-party burn program.
    There are no keyframes in the clip in question. And there are no keyframes in the clips prior.
    We have checked the properties of the clip in question, the clip prior, and the clip after, and they are all identical in terms of position, etc.
    Anyone got a clue?
