I have a 2 monitor setup which are both connected to my GTX 570. I edit on one monitor and play HD video full screen on the client monitor. The video was shot on my Panasonic GH2. Premiere Pro CS5.5 would play this video silky smooth but CS6 drops frames so badly that I woldnt be surprised if it was playing 12 frames per sec.
When I turn off CUDA accleration the video plays a lot smoother.
Is anybody else having this problem?
P.S. I have the latest Premiere Pro update os 6.0.1 and I am using the latest Nvidia drivers. I even installed the older drivers that I was using with CS5.5 and the video is still dropping frames like crazy.
This is a known problem with AVCHD and maybe other codecs. The new 6.0.1 helps but does not completely eliminate the playback problem, which I see especially after scrubbing. Maybe your video is more compressed than mine is. See also This thread
Thanks Bill, but ya know what? I solved the problem. I went into the Nvidia control panel and under Manage 3D settings/Program settings I set the GTX 570 for the main CUDA and open GL renderer. Everything is silky smooth now. Thanks for your help and I hope this little thread helps someone out.
