Red frames on Premiere
by Alex Ojeda on Mar 8, 2015 at 3:31:13 pm
I am having this issue now, never heard of this problem until now. And its happening inside projects that had been ok since a few months back when I finish them. I just went in to export again some of the sequences and now the red frames are all over like a plague. Its Canon footage from an XF300. Ive deleted media cache files, digital rebellion house clean, and now that I want to restart premiere it keeps on crashing while loading the media files, I relaunch again and it loads some more files and goes a bit further until if finally stops crashing after 3 -4 times. I tried the following solution suggested by an Adobe guy: offline clips, delete media cache, save project, close project, link again, and the red frames were gone from the timeline, but they did show up in the exported movie!! I need to deliver this to client this Monday!! Is there any fix to this? I been using this project for a few months exporting movies with no problem until now, but I haven't changed anything in the project. What caused it? What should I do to fix this asap. Please help! Im using Premiere CC 2014 latest update 8.1 Many thanks!
It is a known problem for the second to last version of Premiere Pro CC. I thought that they had fixed it by now, as I am no longer getting them.
However, based on advice I received at the time one should use the "Media Browser" within Premiere Pro to import tapeless footage. Rather than doing the drag & drop straight into the project panel. Since doing this, I have seen none of the annoying red flashes.
If your project is an older version, it may be worth considering setting up a new project and import all the timelines from the old one into that.

Many thanks for the info. Ive never imported footage by dragging and dropping. Ive always used the media browser. I did a bit of research and apparently that red frames bug came back strong in version 8.2, and affects most commonly mxf files, randomly attacking some users.
I rolled back to Premiere 8.1 and AME 8.0.1 and now im good. I'll wait a while before updating again.
