The project could not be loaded, it may be damaged or contain outdated elements - PLEASE HELP

Hi Dear Adobe Forum,
I need help, please
i cant open my project
I72600K
Gygabite Z77Ud5
Matrox Rtx2
16Gb ram
Adobe premiere cs5.0.3
Nvidia geeforce gtx460
u can download my file from here[code]http://speedy.sh/Ahkxh/Anahit1.prproj[/code]http://speedy.sh/Ahkxh/Anahit1.prproj

As a happy user of the Matrox RT.X2 for many years, and later an equally happy user of a Matrox MXO2, I can say from experience that it is highly unlikely that this problem has anything to do with the Matrox hardware!
Can you open a new blank project, and save it?
If you cannot import your faulty project into a new project, can you import the sequence from your faulty project?
Have you tried clearing the Media Cache, clearing your preferences, etc. - all among the techniques used to resurrect a Premiere Pro project that has gone bad???

  • Transfer to new PC: The project could not be loaded, it may be damaged or contain outdated elements

    The Problem
    I have transferred a large and functioning Premiere Pro project to a more powerful PC but am unable to run it, stopped by the error message "The project could not be loaded, it may be damaged or contain outdated elements".
    Facts
    The new PC has a 6-core processor and a different hard drive configuration but the operating system on both is Windows 7 and both PCs host up-to-date Premiere Pro CS6 (as part of Adobe Production Premium). The PCs are networked and Premiere Pro on the old PC can successfully load and run the project file located on the new PC, proving that the transferred file is not damaged. Also, preceding versions of the same project generate the same error message when run on the new PC except, very oddly, for earlier versions saved on or before 28 June 2011, when the project was only a fifth of its current size; those versions load correctly. Contemporary notes show that the editing carried out that day was simple timeline editing, ie no After Effects etc (that came later), and the project has worked fine then and since.
    So I don't have a damaged project file and don't know what "outdated elements" means.
    Help
    Any help solving this problem would be much appreciated.

    Hi Vinay
    As suggested I renamed the additional folder, created a new project, set 'Custom' editing mode, 'Microsoft AVI' as the preview format with 'Uncompressed' codec.
    Unfortunately the results were similar to before: On importing the original project into the new project I was sequentially asked for the locations of various files, including After Effects .aep files. The final file location request, for an mp3 audio file, was followed by lots of conforming and indexing. During this process the 'Where is the file XXX.mp3? window stayed locked open. Eventually, with all conforming etc finished, this window was still open and locked. Clicking anywhere on the screen caused a 'ding' and another, smaller, box opened, listing three .aep files. This box asked no questions and gave no options for selecting a file location so, with the topmost file highlighted, I just clicked 'ok' and the box disappeared, leaving the 'Where is the file XXX.mp3?' box still open.
    The importing process took about 30 minutes. I waited another 10 minutes, in case something was happening in the background, but with the Task Manager CPU usage value sitting on 0 or 1%, I used it to shut down the project.
    For what it is worth, I created a simple new project on the old PC – just a few video clips and transitions in a single sequence (no After Effects etc). This project was then transferred to the new PC and it opened successfully.
    Again I remain grateful to you for this and any more advice.
    Best regards
    Dave

  • THE PROJECT COULD NOT BE LOADED, IT MAY BE DAMAGE OR CONTAIN OUTDATED ELEMENTS

    I am trying to open a .prprj worked yesterday but I get this msg: THE PROJECT COULD NOT BE LOADED, IT MAY BE DAMAGE OR CONTAIN OUTDATED ELEMENTS
    I tried to import it in a new project, import it in AE, open an aotosaved project (there are so old, not usefull)
    I know that it can be edited in XML, but I don't understand anythig of that...
    HOW DO I REPAR IT???
    Any help???

    Hi,
    thanks for for the comment! In fact I did try this and I also tried to import a sequence only. I haven´t changed anything but I guess the automatic update of windows 8.1. has.
    And then I noticed that I´m not at all alone with my problem...
    Debug event f:\mightysilt_win64\shared\adobe\mediacore\mediafoundation\api\inc\keyframe
    So the final solution seems not to be in my hands ;~)

  • The project could not be loaded, it may be damaged or contain outdated elements.

    Hi,
    I need help, desperately!
    I was working today with a small project. I was almost ready, just some titles missing...
    Suddenly I could not load the project anymore. I got these messages (see below).
    I´m using Premiere Pro CS 6  from my hard disk. Operating system is Windows 8.1.  
    Never had this kind of problems before. I can still load other, previous projects without a problem.
    Is there a solution for this?

  • "Project could not be loaded, it may be damaged or contain outdated elements" (CS5.5)

    Hi!
    Yes I'm obviously really kicking myself for not having backed up this project I've spent 100's of hours on (even though I'd been fastidious about backing up all the sequences within the project after changes were made and having multiple copies of all the actual media files)...  somehow it just did not occur to me that the basic project file itself was vulnerable in this way. wow.......
    I was actually on my last evening of editing, working on it since summer.
    Anyway I've checked the auto-save files (corrupted) and tried everything else suggested in countless threads on this topic around the internet and come to the conclusion that the file IS damaged. I've downloaded XML Wrench to try to fix it (I don't have a Mac to do the Digital Rebellion thing) but not knowing anything of XML, it hasn't worked out so far. So is there anyone who might be able to point me in the right direction for getting the file repaired by a third party? I was not able to find a service who might offer such a thing but maybe somebody knows someone?
    Thank you for any help!!!

    Hi James,
    Have you tried creating a new project and then importing items from your corrupted project?

    I always taught my students to back up project files to three places (on the HD, on removable media, in the cloud) on a daily basis. You may want to fall into this habit as it has always saved me from losing work. I'm sorry that you weren't aware that project files should be protected with back ups as they can can become corrupt, as you have seen.
    Good luck,

  • The iphone could not be restored an unknown error occurred 14 ...  please help me

    the iphone could not be restored an unknown error occurred 14 ...  please help me

    Hello ahmedhelmy41
    That error is typically related to USB issues when trying to update or restore. Check out the article below to troubleshoot the issue further. There are also a few things to try that are quoted down below.
    Resolve issues between iTunes and security software
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3125
    To narrow down the issue, you can also change up your hardware:
    Use another USB cable.
    Plug your cable into a different USB port on your computer.
    Try a different dock connector (or no dock).
    Add (or remove) a USB hub between your device and computer.
    Connect your computer directly to your Internet source, with no routers, hubs, or switches.

    I fixed the problem.. but it was very, very strange. I had a very long section for credits and set the line spacing to 1.0.. for some reason this caused it. I removed it, and it worked fine. I put it back, and I couldn't preview or play the video.
    I don't know why that could cause that big of a problem, but it did..

    Shorter clips than 1,5 sec might be one of the culptrits

    Set-Up might differ
    • Mac OS - most probably X.7 or more
    • iMovie version - more than iM'11 v. 9.0.4
    Action taken
    • Finalizing project - I never do as I never understood the gain to do so
    • Share as HD to iDVD - never give any gain but if it works the resulting DVD is less quality than if SD-quality was shared

  • Im unable to open the pdf file for the code to redeem Mountain Lion:the '*****'file could not be opened. it may be damaged or in a format that preview doesn't recognise

    I've tried opening the file in ibooks, on ipad, in Safari, and straight from e-mail, but it can't open the .pdf file. Could it be corrupted? I'm brand new to the MBP so may be missing something obvious!

    If Preview won't read the pdf file, try Adobe Reader. It is possible, of course, that the file may actually be damaged, as Preview should be able to open the file.

  • Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 "The editing mode used by this project could not be loaded."

    Hello-
    I am encountering an issue with my Adobe Premier Pro CS3. I am trying to open up a project that another person has created on a different editing system. When I try to open, it comes up with the error "The editing mode used by this project could not be loaded. The project will be opened in Desktop mode." The next window is a Windows Explorer screen, that wants me to choose a file to open. If I cancel that, it brings up a blank looking project with no timeline or anything?
    A quick comparison of systems:
    Mine:
    HP dc7700s desktop
    Windows XP OS
    Adobe Master Collection CS3
    Hers:
    IBM compatible laptop
    Microsoft Vista
    Adobe Premiere Pro CS3
    Adobe Photoshop CS3
    I have googled the error message, but have not found anything to fix this. I have also verified from Help - About that we have the exact same versions of Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 installed.
    I need to be able to view this project on either computer. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
    Thank you!

    >project will be opened in Desktop mode
    I have never used any non-standard files, but from reading here, desktop mode is used when the video files are not standard... in one way or another, but usually pixel dimensions
    What is the codec and properties of the files in that project?
    Are you sure they are 100% standard?

  • The project could not be prepared for publishing because an error occurred.

    I have just loaded iLife 09 on my MAC. I've edited a movie and now want to export it, put it in iTunes, whatever I can do to move it beyond my laptop. No matter what option I choose under Share I get the same error message, "The project could not be prepared for publishing because an error occurred. (-2009)". I can find the error message online, but not the (-2009) error code. I'm also a longtime PC person who has just switched to a MAC. Can anyone help?

    Check out this thread: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/1421870
    It may mean you either your Event or your Project. Have you moved any of the files in the Finder by any chance? That error may come up if you moved anything outside of iMovie. Do you get an error message when you choose Share>Export to iMovie (choose medium size) and save it to the Desktop? If you can export it to the desktop, you can pull that file into iDVD separately and still make it work.
