Bug in Premiere Pro 2022 on Windows
Updated Premiere Pro to 2022 about a week ago, and could not export in h.264. It kept giving me a render issue, I pre-rendered my entire project and still, it gave me the same error. After that I trouble-shooted by restarting the program, restarting my computer, and then I tried exporting out of Media Encoder. Same issue. I stepped back to 2021 and it fixed the issue. Let me know when this gets worked out. :)
