Corrupt Project File - Still Opens - Solution for exporting MetaDate to Save Edit
on May 25, 2017 at 3:29:17 pm

First off, I just want to say Thank you to all of you that take the time to assist in these forums and come up with Solutions. You guys are truly the greats! I apologize for the upcoming length of the post but I wanted to be as detailed as possible.

Working in Premiere Pro CC(2017 1.1) and After Effects CC(14.2.198). I am working off of two hard drives (Probably not the greatest drives but it is what work provided). My project is rather large (45 Minutes) with a lot of footage. I am an internal video specialist at a Construction Company(Before I got here, files were all over the place, I still don't feel like I have created a good Data Managing process).

I believe my project file is corrupt. The "Indexing and Conforming" (Blue Bar, lower right corner) bar gets stuck in different locations each time I re-open the Project File. Yellow Media Pending is found on a few clips but not all. It also is on the After Effects, Dynamic Links that I have, which are about 10 clips(Which may be the whole issue.)
I am no longer able to use Dynamic Link. Importing just gives me a loading wheel and trying to re-link the old ones causes Premiere to crash. (For Premiere and After Effects, I keep my project Files on Flash Drives and Work off of those. Is this bad etiquette?)

My Creative Cloud application shows no updates that are needed. Solutions I have currently tried are Uninstalling Premiere Pro and Re-Installing. Trying Multiple computers (same issue on each.) Using past project files for this project. (But not with the versions they were created on.)

My guess is it may be the hard drive that gets caught up trying to do the thinking but I think it may have corrupted the project file.

Would there be a way to export a "timing" of the timeline using an EDL or AAF(never have used either before) and import it into a brand new project file? Copy all media that I need over to "ONE" hard drive(Video,Audio,Logos,etc) and place the PR and AE project files on that same hard drive, along with scratch disks.
Or Cut out using "Dynamic Link." Make "Animation" Exports in AE and Import them into PR.
I feel that, either way, I probably need to move my assets to another hard drive rather then it trying to look at two at the same time.

Apologies for the long Post. Thank you in advance.
