Ok, I'm stumped. The iMacs we have here at the high school are set up through active directory and on the Admin account, premiere performs fantastic. On the student accounts however, it has this weird playback issue where it will play for about a second and then stop. You can keep pushing play but it keeps stopping. The app doesn't crash but playback is really bad.
I sure appreciate the help.
Premiere Pro (and Encore) MUST be run by a user with Administrative permissions to work properly
Thanks for the reply!
Are there any user settings in particular that I could enable?
The bummer is that the imac is running for a student account and admin is
pretty strict about enabling administrator prefs to students.
Still, you may well need to make the student accounts Admin if you want the suite to work properly.
