I have a Premiere file that was last opened 3/31/15. It was an unfinished video, and I just filmed the last shot today (don't judge). However, when I go to open the file, it won't finish opening. It tells me it can't find a handful of WAV files I used in the project (naturally, because I moved them to a different folder long ago), but after I locate the files for Premiere, it just sits there indefinitely, as if not doing anything. I would assume it is loading the project file, but I have now even left it sitting there on that screen for half an hour and still nothing.
It's very important to me that I get this file opened, but I don't know any other way to do it other than...just...opening it. Haha. But that doesn't seem to want to happen.
I can provide any more info as needed. Hopefully someone else has dealt with this before.
UPDATE: I have been able to open the file. I apparently just needed to wait for all the footage to conform in the bottom-right status bar area before replacing all the missing files. I don't know why that worked, other than maybe because it was too much for my computer to process all at once. I'll update this thread again if the file continues to be a pain in the butt.
