Alethea GogeriNo Sequence Preview Preset file or codec

I had a project in Premier that was working fine. A few days later I opened the project and got the following error on a few computers

"This project contained a sequence that could not be opened. No sequence preview preset file or codec could be associated with this sequence type."

The project opened up fine in another computer. All computers are Mac OS X 2x2.8GHz Quad Cores. The only conclusion I can come to is that there's a codec that's not on two out of the three computers I tried. Has anyone else had this problem?

Hi Alethea,

My guess is that either some of these Premiere versions are running trial versions, or they are not up to date.

I just got the same message, and the movie I've been editing for the last few weeks won't come up in any form.

I am running a paid copy of Premiere Pro CS5.5.

I read some people were getting the message with a trial version of PluralEyes; I am using a paid version of Dual Eyes.

It's maddening/worrying. Even if the message is literally true (suddenly, arbitrarily) I would hope it would open the project and just not display whatever sequences it means.

As it stands now, I'm really screwed -- none of the backup copies open either.

Help!

Thanks

I just had this issue myself and for anyone else with it I found a fix.. at least it worked for me.

Take a look at this forum reply, you need to open the project file in Text editor and make some simple edits. This saved me! All my projects started to do this after I moved my adobe application files to a new folder in an effort to "cleanup" my harddrive... very strange!

I have tried your method and didn't work. The thing is that I don't even have any sequences. I just merge clips using the project panel to sync audio and video. After I do this and save the project, the next time that I try to open the project it crashes and it sais:


"This project contained a sequence that could not be opened. No sequence preview preset file or codec could be associated with this sequence type"

Can anyone try with your own copy of premiere if this is happening with your installation? I'm running out of time to complete this job and I need a desperate answer.

Help Please

I managed to solve this. The problem stems from the XML file that PluralEyes creates. The file appears to be missing information telling Premiere what codec settings to use for the sequence.

Open up your PluralEyes export in a text editor (I use Notepad ++). Do a search for the word "sequence". You'll see something similar to the following line, just above a yourproject.MOV_synced tag.



Highlight the entire line and replace the text with the following code. (Code link at bottom of post)



You'll need to do this twice, one for the opening sequence and one just above the yourproject.MOV_synced Replaced tag as below.



Save the file then go back to Premiere and import as normal. It should be working fine now.

NB: I've uploaded a text file here with the code to save you typing it out. 8297_pluraleyeserrorfix.txt.zip

Good luck.

I am getting this problem as well. None of the fixes seem to work for me! When I open the project file in a text editor I get strings of weird characters and no where does it have any real words!

Has anyone solved this for good without the work around method?
