I'm still experiencing stuttering playback with Windows 7 and CS5.5. I downloaded the trial version of CS5.5 for the Mac and the workaround of changing the file extension from .mov to .mpg worked great.
Here's a brief writeup of this workaround:
Let us know whether it works for you.
I've just got CS5.5 and was initially experiencing stuttering playback of Canon 7D footage on a new 17" 4-core 2011 MacBook Pro, but I stumbled upon a pretty simple solution for my particular problem: I suspect since I haven't upgraded my RAM yet (it's still the original 4GB), I was getting stuttering playback if I had multiple programs open. I had several programs open like iTunes, Garage Band, Audacity, Firefox, Mail etc and upon closing all of these and having just Premiere open, I got smooth playback! Maybe not a solution for everyone but worth trying...
Hey Todd and Adobe team- This same problem is happening to me as well. I shot a pilot on the D7000 and made some serious strides editorially in CS5. Just bought a new system with CS5.5 (primarilly for the Warp stabilize feature in AE) to inclrease my productivity only to discover this D7000 stutter glitch. Re-naming to .mpg works - but the biggest problem for me is already have hundress of edits made that now need the clips to be re-named and then re-conected. I would instal CS5 if there was any LEAGAL way for me to but there is not. I was not awir of this problem until a few nights back and i'm in middle of a big edit with hard deadlines. I see this issue has been up since October from what I can tell - its now 2012- any idea of when this issue may be resolved? Its a really inconvieniant workaround if you are already in the middle of an edit but... it does work.
Any thoughts besides the obvious for my situation? I'm fairly new to the CS line so all advice is welcomed.
