A Large (1.99 GB) Clip or Final Movie Won’t Play

A Large (1.99 GB) Clip or Final Movie Won’t Play

Depending on your OS and how your drive is formatted, large movies may be either one large file, or two files—a “parent” and a “child” file. The parent file reaches 1.99 GB in file size and then creates a second child file. Have you mistakenly deleted any files labeled “temp”? If so, the parent file cannot play without the child file to assist it in playing the large clip’s playback. The long-duration clip needs to be captured again in its entirety.

If your final movie, on export, reaches 1.99 GB in the rendering window, you will get an error message that informs you a percentage of your work was completed. Premiere then produces a file 1.99 GB in size that will not play back. This means your operating system or hard drive is not ready for processing and playback of any files beyond 2 GB. With final exported movies, there are no parent/child files. The project will have to be shortened, exported in pieces, or exported to a hard drive meeting the specifications in the following list.
