This is happening more frequently now and I have never come across this issue. It is only happening on SOME projects, not all. However, if I create a new project all together and import the footage that is playing back slowly, it still has the issue. In other cases, there is footage that has no issues. I am only finding the issues with my 5DM3 and not on my mark 2 or 60D. It actually seems like its happening more on the footage taken in IPB instead of ALL-I. The video manily just playes back choppy in the preview window AND after I import it into the timeline. It will only play back smoothly once I render the video. When it is imported into the timeline, there is only a yellow bar above it, not red. I am running premiere pro 5.5.0.
My computer specs:
MacBook Pro Retina Mid 2012
Processor: 2.3GHz Intel Core i7
Memory: 8GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024 MB
OS: OS X 10.8.4 (12E55)
I have a seperate drive for my project file and assets. I have a seperate drive for my final product, preview files, and caches.
I also usually do not edit using the retina display, I use a large monitor using HDMI and close the macbook.
There is a known issue with previous versions of Premiere playing back IBP media a little choppy. I recommend shooting in ALL-I which should be playing back smoothly. This bug was addressed in Premiere Pro CC.
Thanks for the quick reply, Peter! One more question then, if I was considering upgrading to CC anyways, would that resolve my issue? I already have taken quite a bit of footage in IPB mode and will be needing to edit a large project.
Yes the probelm is resolved in Premere Pro CC. I suggest downloading the trial version and giving that a try first.
