Adobe Premiere CS4 - Exporting issues

December 2016




Issue


I installed the first pro cs4, Professional Edition on my computer for editing files in mxf (filmed with a Panasonic P2). The installation is finished, I made the record and now I want to export the installation on a file. I select my sequence, I export and open the Adobe Media Encoder which can export a sequence. Unfortunately, each time, the export does not hold myself and Media Encoder the following error message: "Unable to read from the source. Check if it has been moved or deleted" while my installation source files are on my internal drives and do not appear on the first off-line. What should I do??

Solution


Unable to read from the source. Check if it has been moved or deleted.


Where is the problem? knowing that I have not touched any of my video or modified!

The origin of the problem may be an installation of CS4 CS3 on an uninstall of CS3 after installing CS4, or ... lots of other problems that are not identified but who have a solution
  • First, Close all Adobe applications. Then we must find the executable file PPRO CS4 should normally be located in C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Pro CS4\
  • Create a shortcut to "Premiere Pro CS4.exe" or "Premiere Pro CS4" (if you do not choose to display file extensions)
  • Rename the shortcut "Premiere". Attention "Premiere" as is, without extension. Exe, very important. This requires that your Windows displays file extensions.
  • Open a new file explorer window and copy the shortcut into:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\dynamiclink\ 

and:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Keyfile\dynamiclink 


Here, the problem of connection between Premiere Pro CS4 and Media Encoder CS4 will be addressed.

I created this post to Windows XP. For Vista, I think we should replace Program Files Program. But I'm not sure. If any of you can make this manipulation with Vista and post the correction in response to this tip.

Also try updating your copy of Adobe Premiere, this is very important to get new updates which can fix some issues and add more options:
