I am running CS6 and CS 5.5 side by side. Both CS6 and CS5.5 are fully updated and patched. The system has an Nvidia GTX-570 video card with the latest driver. Windows 7 x64 is patched and updated.
In a 1 hour 3 camera talking head shoot set to edit in multi-camera mode the CS6 freezes. The audio will play but the video remains on the initial frame and does not advance with the audio. Once this happens I can close the multi-camera window and the video will remain frozen in the regular playback window even with the video playback res set to 1/4 res. CS6 needs to be closed and reopened to get back to normal operation. I rebuilt the project in CS5.5 and it runs great in multi-camera mode and plays back real time at 100% playback res.
It appears to be a project file issue of some sort. The CS5.5 project file = 1,293 KB and the CS6 project file = 1,617 KB. The CS5.5 project has 3 times the sequences in it yet is smaller. Could this be a project file bloat issue like the one CS5 had?
On that same machine using the same install of CS6 I have a 2.5 hour 5 camera shoot of a band that plays normally and edits in 5 camera multi-camera mode real time at full res with no issues.
Has anyone experienced this freezing in CS6 and has anyone figured out why and how to fix it?
This sounds like the bug in CS6 which affects spanned media. If so, your best option is to simply to edit this in 5.5.
Wonderful! Back in CS5 when the project files got buggered we had a work around where we would create a new project and import everything into it. That got us by until they fixed it. Fortunately I still have 5.5 on the system.
