Premiere Pro & Premiere Elements Crash When Open Together?

Anyone have a problem with Premiere Pro & Premiere Elements crashing when open together?
I have PE10 and am doing a trial of Premiere Pro CS6.
Both crash fairly quickly when open together.
i7 2600K
Windows 7 64 Bit
GTX 470
Corsair AT 850 Watt PSU

The first thiing that comes to my mind is a resources issue. As you have a stout computer, with more than adequate RAM, unless something is failing (like a stick of RAM), or perhaps the GPU, I would not expect to see what you observe. On a much less powerful machine, I have no problem running PrPro, Encore, Photoshop, Illustrator, and a word processor, all at the same time.
I would look into this ARTICLE, which starts with some general tips on setting up one's computer for running PrE, and then goes into system and OS tune-up tips (this is probably where I would start, if the intitial checklist looks OK), and then goes into troubleshooting. I would definitely look here, and especially using Event Viewer to try and track down what is happening, when the crashes occur, and also the one on tools to test RAM, GPU's, etc.).
Good luck,

    Ann, THANKS for replying!
    If I open a brand new project, which I could do before, and then IMPORT a previous project, it works and I can edit and export the project.  However, it did crash upon trying to save it and I still can not just open a previously created project.  When I do I get an error message that Says: "Premiere has encountered an error and needs to close down.  We will attempt to save your project."
    Do you or anyone else have any ideas?

  • Premiere Pro 5.5 crashes when importing mpg file

    Premiere Pro 5.5 crashes when importing mpg file.
    I can get the file to import if I first right click the file and tell it to "open in source monitor" then tell it to import.
    When I do this it indexes the file. After it is done indexing is when I can then import the file.
    Should I not just be able to tell it to import and it does the indexing?
    These files that I am tryig to open were with Premiere Pro 4.

    Welcome to the forum.
    What are the specs. of this MPEG file? Might be something in those, that is causing an issue.
    Good luck,

  • Acrobat Pro 9.3 Crashes when opening multiple files

    Acrobat Pro 9.3 Crashes when opening multiple files. I have not seen any solutions in forums that solves this problem. I have just done the most recent update and it still crashes.

    Acrobat Pro 9.4.2 (CS5) is doing the same thing on my Windows XP SP3 with 3.5 GB of ram and 206 GB of my brand new 300 GB hard drive free.
    It starting doing this at the end of last year before my hard drive died.  Then after rebuilding the entire system on this new drive it worked fine, until I downloaded all the updates and now it is broken again.  Anytime I open more than one PDF, Acrobat crashes.  I send the error report every time.

  • Premiere Pro CC 2014 crashes when loading project file

    Hi guys, any help on this is much appreciated as I have a job due in 18 hours and I'm in big trouble if I can't fix this.
    I've been editing a project in Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2014 (updated to the latest version) and when I tried to access the same file today it is giving me the error message:
    'Sorry, a serious error has occurred that requires Adobe Premiere Pro to shut down. We will attempt to save your current project.'
    I had saved other version files and they all seem to be working properly so I know it's not my HD that is corrupt. In fact my suspicion is that it has something to do with a blur effect i'm using. The only problem is, I can't even access the file to delete the effect as the project file won't open.
    Information about my computer:
    I am using a Macbook Pro
    OS X version 10.9.4
    2.6 Ghz Intel Core i5
    Memory 16 GB, 1600 MHz DDR3
    Any suggestions/comments would be appreciated.

    Guys I solved my own problem - thought I'd share with you how in case anyone else is having this problem -
    I came across this thread
    Premiere Pro CC error message and crash
    which had the suggestion -
    "Do tou have after effects installed? If yes, please try to import the main sequence into it and then export it as premier pro project from file/export ootion and then try to open that in premiere pro."
    This didn't work for me too but I did try and import my existing project into a new project and copy all the files over. Works fine now.
    I don't know if I will have the same issue again tomorrow so I'm going to render out a super high res video before I close premiere just in case

  • Premiere Pro CS5.5 crashing while opening any project but new

    Premiere Pro keeps crashing when I attempt to open any previously saved project.
    If media to a project is not linked, it will open the box to relink, but selecting "link" or "offline" both lead to a crash once the workspace attempts to load.
    I am on a 3.4 Ghz Intel Core i7 iMac. AMD Radeon HD 6970M 1024 MB with Lion 10.7.4. I updated my PP and Media Encoder.
    I have the Master Suite CS5.5, but mostly live in PS, AI and DW. I searched through the discussions and found a number of posts regarding crashes, but they all seem to have different problems/solutions. The issue is now over my head. Any suggestions?
    Also, I read on a few discussions that it is recommended to run PP on a seperate machine because when a problem arises it is easier to discover its cause. If I don't have the means to do this, are there any tips for it to run seamlessly?
    Below is the script from problem report.
    Thanks for your time,
    [Please don't post full crash reports in the forum.  It makes scrolling through a thread very unwieldy.  If an Adobe staff member wants to see one, you can PM the report separately.]

    The first thing that I would do is to look over this FAQ Entry, and then post the details - the more the better.
    If your Projects are behaving as the OP's were, and the media is in a similar place, be sure to list everything.
    Good luck,

  • Premiere Pro CC 14 Crashing When Importing, Exporting

    I am running Premiere Pro CC 2014.0 on Windows 7 Pro

    RAM: 24GB
    GFX Card: Intel HD Graphics 4600

    The program was running fine up until yesterday when I was attempting to do some simple editing of some GoPro footage together and Premiere began to freeze and crash when rendering and exporting. I thought it was an issue with the footage so I attempted to import some video from my Canon XA20 that I was using eariler in the day I knew worked and now Premiere crashes when I attempt to import it and move it to the timeline. I have uninstalled and re-installed Premiere and the problem has not been fixed. Below are two sets of error messages I have seen in the event log.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated with this aggravating problem!!!!!

    Try to reset the preferences.
    go to documents folder-adobe-7.0
    rename it old 7.0
    once we reset the preferences, you would loose you custom presets and keyboard shortcuts if you created any.
    Thank You

  • Premiere Pro cs6 keeps crashing when im editing or rendering a video

    When I am on Adobe Premiere Pro cs6 every 10-20 mins it crashes when im editing a video, it crashes more often when im rendering it (export media, ctrl+M). I dont mind when it crashes while im editing because i save the file regularly but when im rendering its a problem, it probably because the file is too big as i use dxtory to record skyrim but this is an expensive product so it should be able to render. I encode the file once ive chosen the format and stuff for the video and it says finish rendering in 50 mins or so and when it gets to like 4% rendering it says not responding. It then troubleshoots but then says 'close program'. this is very frustrating, please can someone help me. I've looked through the forums but i dont uinderstand many of the solutions as im not that good at computers

  • Premiere Pro CC 2014 crash when I Click and Drag

    Hi All, I have a problem with Premiere CC 2014 that is driving me crazy!
    The issue is as follows:
    If I try to drag a clip, sequence, effect or transition anywhere within the premiere, it will crash - with "Sorry, a serious error has occurred" message. The program will crash, quit and the saved recovery project is usually healthy (luckily!). BUT, as soon as I've re-started the program, and reloaded the project - or any project for that matter - the problem persists. As soon as I click and drag, Premiere crashes!
    In order to 'reset' this, I have to restart my machine. Once I have done so, I can continue editing as normal for a while (not long, perhaps up to an hour, or so) but eventually, it WILL crash again. I've not been able to work out what I have to do in order to trigger this - it seems random. But once it's happened, only restarting my computer will resolve it - and then only temporarily.
    Here are all the facts:
    The crash ONLY happens when I drag something... This can include moving a clip on the timeline, dragging a clip form the source viewer or project window, dragging an effect or transition.
    The crash happens after I have clicked, as soon as I start to move my mouse.
    I CAN click and drag to extend in and out points on the timeline, and I can do 'insert' edit using the button on the source monitor. No crash here.
    The footage plays fine.
    I am trying this on a CLEAN OS X install, with only Adobe packages installed, to eliminate any potential of interference from other programs. There are no third party plugins or drivers installed. No user data installed either (preferences, photos, documents, etc) - as fresh as it comes!
    I am not running Time Machine in the BG
    My system is: Macbook Pro 2011, 16GB Ram, 1tb SSD, OS X Yosemite 10.10.1. Intel Graphics card, so no option to turn on or off hardware acceleration. It is set to software only.
    I have tested this with projects and footage on an external drive, as well as internal, same issue.
    I noticed the issue had started on, or around 25-27th November 2014.
    Interestingly, I have noticed that once this crash has occurred in Premiere, a similar problem will occur in After Effects as soon as I drag a file or layer... doesn't matter what the layer is. The crash seems less elegant here, I don't get an error message, it just freezes and I have to 'force quit'. Again, the problem persists until the machine is restarted.
    I have been using my macbook and premiere pro cc 2014 on Mavericks for a long time, and had no problems - so I know it should work fine! The only things that changed were an update to Yosemite, I started using Time Machine to make regular backups, I installed a few new fonts and any CC updates that happened in the background... I can rule out most of these because of my fresh install, with no user data, fonts plugins or time machine to confuse matters... It must be an Adobe bug with Yosemite!
    Any ideas?
    Thanks so much in advance!!

    Please check this blog post. Updating from Time Machine can cause this issue: Premiere Pro CC, CC 2014, or 2014.1 freezing on startup or crashing while working (Mac OS X 10.9, and later).

  • Premiere Pro CC 2014 crashing when trying to see a sequence

    This is the error message I keep receiving - 
    [/caravan/releases/2014.09/shared/adobe/MediaCore/Backend/Src/Sequence/PersistentGroupCont ainer.cpp-279]
    The only variant I've seen is when I try opening the same sequence in Premiere Pro CC, not 2014.
    I've tried importing in the exact sequence to a fresh new project and it drops the import altogether. Has anyone seen this happen across multiple versions of cleanly installed Premiere?

  • Premiere Pro CC (2014) crashing when making a sequence

    I just did a clean install of OS X Yosemite and installed Creative Cloud on my 2008 MacPro. Every time I make a new sequence or open a saved Premiere Pro CS6 project, Premiere Pro CC 2014 always crashes. I am not sure what is going on because before I updated OS X from Mavricks, I used Premiere Pro CS6 with no issues at all. Please help! Thanks!
    Here are my MacPro settings:
    Here are the errors I am getting:
    That blank space usually says this:

    Ok I have seemed to "fix" the problem. I have two video cards on my MacPro:
    I have a three monitor setup with two monitors on the 2600 XT and a single monitor on the 6870. I unplugged the two monitors on the 2600 XT and created a new sequence and it didn't crash. Not quite sure what is going on with this because this was never an issue while I was running Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. I still do want to run a three monitor setup but the 6870 doesn't want to support three monitors. Hopefully there is an update from Adobe that will fix this issue.
    Is there a way that Premiere will not try to use the other video card?

  • Premiere Pro, Media Encoder Crashing When Exporting/Rendering

    For the longest time if I ever tried to export or render a video longer than 5 minutes, my Premiere Pro or Media Encoder crashes. I don't know why but it is EXTREMELY irritating when attempting to make lengthened gaming videos. I have tried 15 different methods all online, to no avail. It always crashes around the 40% mark in Adobe Premiere and it isn't a corrupt project. I have literally tried everything to no avail and I finally decided I would turn here to ask for help. I reset the preferences, tried copying and pasting into a new sequence, tried reinstalling Premiere... the whole bit. My technical specifications are not the issue at hand I don't believe, but just in-case the list is provided below.

  • What can I do to stop Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 from crashing when exporting?

    Regardless of whether I have a new project file or an existing one, edits or no edits, whenever I click export, Premiere Pro simply crashes.  Same for Media Encoder - can't even open that one.  I have all of the latest CS6 updates installed, the computer is brand new as of two weeks ago - OSX 10.9.1, NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024 MB.  The only way I've been able to export is through a backdoor: I use the dynamic link in After Effects, then render out my sequences there.  Help?
