    Choppy Timeline Playback in Premiere Pro CS5.5

    skraw Level 1

      Hey all, looked around the forum quite a bit but still can't find a solution. So here's my set up:


      Windows 7 64 bit

      Intel i7-2600 3.4GHz

      16 GB DDR3 RAM

      AMD Radeon HD 6350 512 MB

      7200 RPM 1TB Hard Drive


      Editing 1080p video from a Canon 7D. Playback in the timeline is choppy and freezes constantly. Plays OK for a few seconds then gets choppy. Sometimes longer, but can't get more than 15 seconds. Even with playback resolution at 1/2 or 1/4. I know I could have a faster set up, but I figure this would be fast enough to at least playback footage through the timeline. I rendered the entire workspace and the gree line is over all tracks. I only have 2 video tracks and one audio track. Any ideas?
