    Couldn’t download message when opening with adobe encode app couldn’t fine aam/SAPC=
    I was hoping it can fix this problem. Can’t read or load Tricaster files If after about 30 seconds of opening the project, if the media does not load, the project does not continue attempting to load the file and does not allow me to work with my footage on the timeline. Premiere also crashes Some time said there no Audio or video in this media.(but only on projects containing Tricaster filmed clips).

    So basically I am stuck having to open and close the project until it decides to load properly…and this is a huge problem where is an Adobe Tech Support can’t find?
