Adobe Media Encoder

Does anyone else have random encoder fails?

I am editing 5dii footage, no color correction and just want to output some h264 files for proofs. If I just keep trying, the 5 files come out. I tried switching from straight h264 to a QT H264 and even then I had to try 4 times.

Any ideas?

are you trying a batch convert or single file? I've never had an issue with a single file but with a "watch folder" or batch convert I've had a few failures...

Try a single file and if that also fails, dump the prefs and reinstall the adobe suite....

Re-stalling the suite might be a little extreme... and time consuming.

it's random when it decides to act up.

Which version of Media Encoder are you using?

I've been using a combination of CS6 and CS5.5 over the past few months with no problems and I've had batches of 40+ files. I'm usually going from H.264, MTS or MPEG to ProRes though so it's not quite the same as what you are doing.
