Slow playback of Canon 5D Mark III file

Mar 6, 2012 9:35 PM

I tried this new Canon 5D Mark III native .MOV in PPro CS5.5: https://vimeo.com/38055013

Available for download on Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/38055013/download?t=1331098396&v=87557753&s=60764fbb 7ca30180cd7cfb02022adc3c

 

In CS5.5, it plays OK for a few seconds, then slows way down. Sequence created from the clip format (matches). GTX 285, 12 Core 2.93 (MacPro running Win7x64), same issue GPU or CPU.

Plays fine in PPro CS5, Vegas 11, Windows Media Player, etc.

 

Can anyone verify this issue in PPro CS5.5?

    Have you installed the latest updates? They include some improvements in decoding of such files.

    For info, the Vimeo content in question has been removed as it was infringing the Canon non-disclosure agreement (the footage was from a pre-release camera).

    I would suggest going to your MediaCacheFiles directory (typcially this is C:\Users\<your_user_name>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Common\Media Cache Files), and delete the .qtindex files when Premiere is not running, relaunch, and try importing the files again.

    At this point, that's probably a safe bet.

    Well, as soon as I saw the codec change I knew there would be a problem, CS5.5.2 could fix it , but , I canot fault CS5.5.2 in Premiere Pro for our updated Firmware Canon 5 D Mark II, editing the old Mark II is a breeze , the HD Video PAL at 1920 x 1080p is just stunning.

     

    All the best
