I've been getting weird and brief artifacts when playing from the timeline, as (hopefully) can be seen in the image above. It usually happens after I Roll an edit point backwards or forwards. Moreover, when I check the original clip in the source monitor, the same artifact appears at the same point.
Restarting Premiere usually fixes this, but it's been happening while I'm working with a client, so I need to figure out what's going on.
The files are
AVCIntra100 (100Mbit/Sek) 1080i/25PN (1080 x 1920 = FullHD) 10bit / 4:2:2
I'm running Premiere cs6 *v6.03* on an i7 3630qm laptop with 32gb RAM, Nvidia gtx670mx, and 3gb of dedicated video ram
Hopefully someone has experienced this problem before (so I don't feel alone!) and has identified the cause.
Thanks Jim, but that's going to be hard to organise for me, as I imagine the problem could only be reproduced in a project that contains a lot of P2 footage. In any case, reproducing the problem will be difficult as the artifacts occur infrequently.
I just hoped that someone had already come across the issue in their own work....perhaps while using a different video format.
One thing that occurred to me is that it might be due to streaming the files via USB 3, from a decent though unreliable drive (Western Digital MyBook).
Not likely. The only issue a slow drive would produce is less than realtime playback. And a USB 3 drive should be plenty fast enough.
Still, moving the footage over to an internal is not a bad test to run.
