The playback is really choppy.
What I am using:
(Brand New) iMac
Processor 3.2 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX 1024 MB
Nikon D5100 DSLR
Shot in 1080i 30 fps
Try following this and see if it works.
Dont know if they got this fixed yet.
Yes, take your question to the Hardware forum. But I'd be wondering about your drives? When I built my 3930K system a year and a bit ago, it still stuttered in the timeline until I added a raid0 for the project files, (with DSLR H.264 footage)
I cannot believe how bad the playback is in Premiere Pro CC, and, how little help there is out there. Raw MOVs from a 5D plays back like garbage on my laptop or 8 core Mac Pro. Its ridiculous. I'm better off transcoding to ProRes and using FCP which works, or God forbid, go back to using Avid like its 1999. Unfortunately It has nothing to do with the two graphic cards or 32 gigs of memory I have either, it just plays back like garbage. Using the JKL keys is completely awkward because the lag between hitting the key and playback is excruciating. I'm at 1/2 resolution and it cant play back footage without being choppy. no FX, and the footage and hardrive is on a 6g SSD. This should be screaming.
Adobe, seriously, live up to your other products standards, they are so good, why does this one just bomb?
