Project Manager not working after recent update
After the most recent Premiere Prop update (April 2018) I have noticed the project manager no longer works on my Mac running OSX 10.11.05. I have tried various solutions such as resaving the file, saving to different locations and renaming all assets to remove all non letter/numerical characters. Nothing seems to work I just get the "unknown error" message right before the files finish copying and then no folder or files are creating in the destination location. Have tried with at least 4 different projects and the same thing occurs.

Interesting about PlumePack. Suggetion for your next product, or perhaps an enhancement to this one: globally relink footage in a Premiere project... something that any editing program should have built in, but Premiere doesn't.
For example, you use the project manager to round up all the footage you used, so you can color-correct it in the CC software you prefer. You copy it to a working directory and color-correct it. Then you export all of the corrected files with the same filenames and sizes. Now obviously you want to relink your project with the corrected files.
Premiere doesn't provide this basic, essential workflow function. Talk about amateur hour.

We just developed a plugin called PlumePack which could help you ! It's almost the same than the Project Manager but without those kind of errors.
There is also the "Trim" feature : it removes your unused frames without re-encoding so you keep the same codec, exact same quality and your media will be lighter. It's like copying a part of your files.

Please fix this. It is very important for post workflows and simply archiving one's projects.

I am having this same issue. I have to make a new project then copy my timeline into a new sequence and then it will PM. Same media, same destination, so it is a bug. PLEASE FIX!!

What is Adobe's deal with linking to the wrong footage? It's epidemic through the product, and it's killing it.

I'm finding that the copy function is still working correctly but when I open the new project created by project manager, it is linking back to all the original media and not the copied or transcoded media... this is a bug that didn't happen with later versions
Same here. I need to copy all material used in my project to a new location, excluding unused clips. This has worked fine in the past. Now, it fails less than a second into the "analyzing" step, and I have plenty of disk space. I've tried managing even one simple timeline by itself from my project, and it still fails instantly.
This is a major problem, since it eliminates the only apparent way to collect assets that were used in your timelines... for color correction, audio post, archiving, or any other purpose.
PLEASE FIX THIS. This breaks an entire workflow. I can't even start color correction now until I manually isolate every clip used in my program. Seriously?
