Yes me too, double effects as well. Running windows 7 professional 64 bit.
Re: the problem with dupes of all the effects, see this thread: http://forums.adobe.com/message/5806413#5806413.
If the solution presented there does not fix the frame distortion you're reporting, please specify which effects manifest this bug as well as sequence settings and clip properties. A screenshot of the Effect Controls panel could be useful.
the double effects are gone but the skewness is still there. I made a new test project and whenever I render some video effect it gives a skewed playback. Audio effects are not giving any trouble. In this sceenshot I applied a 0% sharpness effect and after rendering it gives the distortion. If I deselect the effect in the effects control panel it plays back normal. I use pal 25p 5dmk3 dslr footage.
I also did now a total new instal of Premiere but the issue is still excisting.. Except for the double effects, these are not appearing there now.
Thanks for the screenshots. Nothing jumps out at me as a likely culprit. I reproduced the case as closely as possible and cannot repro.
The OS does not appear to be involved since xavier108 is on Windows and Filmhutch is on Mac.
- What graphics card are you on? And it's driver version? Does the system happen to have two graphics cards, or an integrated graphics chip plus a card?
- Is GPU acceleration enabled for Mercury Playback? If so, please switch to Software Only to see if that's involved.
- So this problem manifests only if the clip has a video effect applied? If that's correct, then I'm guessing that the video is squished only in the Program Monitor, not the Source Monitor. Is that correct?
- Does this happen with any other content or just the DSLR clips? How about a "synthetic" like Universal Counting Leader or Bars & Tone with the same properties (1920x1080, 1.0)
Thank you for your reply and help. I did further resreach and found where the problem exactly occurs. The playback reolution in the program monitor was at 1/4 and setting it to 1/2 or full made the skewness disappear. So the 1/4 playback resolution is causing it for me.
To answer your questions:
1) On laptop I use graphic card ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 (total graphics memory 512 MB) with driver version: 8.632.1.2000 and on workstation ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series with driver version: 8.632.1.2000
2) Mercury playback set at software only for both laptop and workstation.
3) Yes only with effect. Yes only in program monitor. The source monitor and the reference monitor both do not have trouble with 1/4 or the other settings.
4) It further appeas not only with dslr footage, I tried some others as well. The 1920x1080 synthetics also gives distortion at 1/4th, not at 1/2 or full.
I am experiencing the same issue since updating to 7.1. It only happens when in 1/4 res. When I first saw it I thought to myself "well maybe they changed how fractal resolution displays". It didn't really effect my workflow so I didn't say anything. I did not experience the double effects issue but I indeed have the fractal resolution display issue.

I will make an edit to this post and post my GFX specs when I am on the workstation a little later. I will also do some tests as well as post results.
Here are my specs.
512MB GeForce 9400 GT (MSI)
Driver Version: 126.96.36.19965
Driver Date: 10/23/2013
I did some testing and the distortion only happens when I render preview. If I do not render and just play the sequence thee is no distortion.
It is happening with AVCHD .MTS clips which were imported via the media browser.
Kudos, xavier108. You nailed it down pretty well. The keys seem to be
- content that uses ImporterFastMPEG
- Mercury Playback Engine set to Software Only
- Playback Resolution set to 1/4
In my experience, it reproes in the Source Monitor as well as the Program Mon and regardless of whether any effect is applied.
Thanks for the additional info.
Sorry for the delay, i added some info.
This bug is fixed in the CC7.2 update.
