Jumping/Lagging During Playback (Before & After Rendering)

Aug 16, 2012 1:59 PM

In a HD video clip I'm trying to make some edits to in CS5.5.  When the clip is imported to the timeline playback is choppy.  This happens before and after rendering.  However, when the unedited clip is played in something like Windows Media Player or KMPlayer there is no jumping/lag.   I'm newer to Premiere as I came from Final Cut Pro, any ideas?

 

I cant seem to find any answers online or in the forums.

    You dont mention what your media is playing back from. Is it a raid or just 1 internal drive or ?

    Check out this video about optimizing performance for the Adobe Mercury Engine. Pay special attention when it talks about the raid system for media playback. It might be your issue.

    It's because your GPU isn't NVidia so it doesn't support GPU accleration within Premiere.

    I think if you had a NVIDIA card the problem would likely go away. Keep in mind though you don't want to buy just any NVIDIA card.  Although like Las stated you really could use a RAID array too.

    • Source footage is from an HD Camera saved as a wmv file.

     

    I'm not aware of any cameras that record WMV files, which means this footage has already been converted, and to a format that is not particularly editing friendly.  You might try getting your hands on the original media.

    Well buying two or three 7200RPM 1TB HDD's wouldn't be very expensive. It would cost around 300 usd roughly. Maybe 220USD if you get a good sale on newegg.  You could also get the card you would need for around 220USD( that is on adobe's officially supported list) if you catch a good sale.

     

    Also as Jim correctly stated I haven't ever seen a camera that records stuff as WMV and WMV is highly compressed and therefore isn't editing friendly.

    It should go away and the media show up.

    And, you really need at least one more 7200rpm hard drive... either internal or eSata or USB3 external (NOT a USB2 external !!!)

     

    Trying to use only ONE Hard Drive for Video Editing

    .

    You are a music conductor, with a baton that you use to point to various parts of the orchestra... this is like Windows pointing to various parts of the hard drive to do Windows housekeeping or to load program segments for various functions

    .

    Now, at the same time and with the same hand... while still using the baton to conduct the orchestra... pick up a bow and play a fiddle... this would be doing something with your video file at the same time as all the other work

    .

    You as a person cannot do both at the same time with the same hand

    .

    A computer is a LITTLE better, in that it can switch from one kind of task to another very quickly... but not quickly enough for EASY video editing

    .

    You need AT LEAST two hard drives (separate drives, never a partition http://forums.adobe.com/thread/650708 for more) with Windows (or Mac OS) and software on your boot drive, and video files on a 2nd drive so the boot drive is not slowed down by trying to do everything

    .
