Timeline playback problem: video jumps back while audio plays on.

Hi everyone,


Can someone help me with this.


My software is Premiere Pro CS6.0.3

I'm editing a project with EX3 material, but i've seen this problem before with CF300 material.

When I playback my timeline, the video often jumps back and freezes while the audio plays on.

My project settings are  Sony XDCAM EX 1080i (HQ) and i used the Blackmagic Motion-JPEG as well.

Both give the same problem.


My hardware is:

Asus P9X79 Deluxe iX79,

Intel Core i7 3930K 3.20GHz 12MB Box,

Corsair 4x8GB DDR3 PC12800 CL9 Vengeance,

MSI Videokaart PCI-e GeForce GTX680 Twin Frozr OC 2GB,

Blackmagic Design DeckLink Studio 2 for monitoring.


It also happens on my laptop: Asus N73s i7 6Gb


The drives I'm using are Western Digital 2TB My Book Esssensials USB3.0

but this also happens when I edit from other harddrives or network places.


Thanks for your time and hopefully giving me a great solution

    There is a MAC article on something similar but I don't know if that will help for a Windows computer

    I get the same problem as well, also with a BM card and Sony EX footage.

    I also get this problem occasionally. Running Premiere 6.0.3, Windows 7, and a BM Intensity card. Maybe its linked to the BM card as all three of use one one? Anyone NOT using a BM card getting this problem?

    Adobe doesn't typically make public it's plans for future software/updates until they're ready (or just before).

    I've been in discussions with Adobe on my problem with this and their replies ( from engineers ) has been that there is a problem with the Blackmagic Intensity Pro driver 9.7 and Premiere CS6.  A 9.7.1 version should fix it due March 8ish.

    Having said that, I was experiencing playback freezes on the earlier 9.6 series driver so I'm not holding my breath.

    Everything else works superbly though and I'm very happy with the CS6 package.
