Three hard drives. Program is on system drive, Project and video files are on second internal drive, Scratch files are on third internal drive.
I don't think it's a Matrox issue - the Matrox driver is current and the video I see in my external video monitor is fine. The monitor to which I'm referring is the source monitor within Premiere. Also, format doesn't seem to be a factor; I see this with HD as well. Interestingly enough, I also experience this issue with Encore. I get the same kind of "skippy" playback in the Encore monitor window when I preview a project. The final disc, however, is fine. So I'm wondering if this is a processor or gpu card-related issue. Looks like something I'll just have to live with. Not about to try to reload all this software.
Turns out I had the wrong player selected. I needed the Matrox player instead of the Adobe player. All fine now.
