The hang is variable and random upon each encode operation; Sometimes 0%, sometimes 42%, sometimes 92%. Often hangs at 0% prior to utilizing any CPU forcing me to forcefully close and restart the program. In Ppro, If I cancel the hung encode and start it again without closing / rebooting premiere entirely; it hangs at 0%. Apparently at a similar state as it was during the initial encode. The program often hangs while moving around the timeline as well (says program is not responsive). It may or may not unhang after a minutes or hours; I don’t have time to wait around because this happens every 5 minutes or so.
Exporting often works when lowering export resolution down from 1920 to 1280; disabling maximum render quality & maximum depth.
I have deleted cache files. I have disabled all overclocking on my system. I have updated all adobe products and sapphire & drivers, to the latest, disabled GPU encoding in Sapphire.
Video Card: Nvidia 660 GTX.
Project includes the following plugins: The latest Boris FX Sapphire & Continuum;
I saw an error on the bottom right, exception occurred with plugin: S_glow; At this point, closing Premiere doesn’t close premiere entirely; I must force close it and its associated programs via task manager.
Many users were having issues with Sapphire’s GPU encoding enabled; So I tested to see if disabling sapphires GPU utilization would result in a successful encode.
Just edit the line that says use_gpu=yes to use_gpu=no.
gpu=no Test result was: Much slower encode, still same problem.
multi_process_enable: 0 resulted in the same problem.
Optional: If disabling GPU in Sapphire works for you, you can enable GPU for faster albeit somewhat buggy timeline editing & previews, and disable for final encode.
Using Windows 7; Anyone have any clue what is going on here?
