Premiere “serious error” export crash caused by Morph Cuts

I hardly ever update here now – my posts have all been on LinkedIn and Stornaway.io for a long time (Please follow my new company blog there). But I saw a post today on the LinkedIn Premiere group that I thought I should share. And maybe post here a bit more often. I get so many emails (and work projects) from the Canon XF post that clearly this site is well ranked on Google, and posts here can help more people.

Anyway, the post in question is from Chris Strider in the Premiere group, whose Premiere crashed repeatedly mid-export on a tight deadline (of course) with the helpfully informative error:

“Sorry, a serious error has occurred that requires Adobe Premiere Pro CC to shut down. We will attempt to save your current project.

A horror familiar to anybody who’s ever used any NLE (Non Locatable Errors).

The culprit was a Morph Cut transition, which is something that’s failed for me too. And Chris Hanselaar said in the comments that it happened to him so much he’s stopped using Morph Cut altogether.

Here’s the post – hopefully it’ll remain searchable & findable here for someone tearing their hair out on a deadline. If so, let me know. Meanwhile, join the Adobe Premiere group on LinkedIn.

I came across this issue with Premiere crashing in the middle of an export on a tight deadline with only the crash & error message of:

“Sorry, a serious error has occurred that requires Adobe Premiere Pro CC to shut down. We will attempt to save your current project.”

Answer: After hours of troubleshooting, finally found the culprit to be a Morph Cut between two clips in my sequence. Once removing that Morph Cut, the export was quick and successful.

Wanted to share this info to help those who have before or may run into this issue in the future. The culprit could be a Morph Cut or some other sort of transition. Hope this helps!
