My Premiere Pro shuts down every time I attempt to play imported footage on the Source and Program Monitor.
I am using a Macbook Pro, OS X 10.8.5. Processor is 2.6 GHz with 3/4 of my memory empty. I have a Canon T5i, but am importing footage from my SD card to my 2TB hard drive. All footage is not raw, and is in 1080p.
I updated Premiere Pro from the Creative Cloud with no changes.
Check to see if your footage is corrupt with Digital Rebellion's Corrupt Clip Finder.
