Exactly what version of PPro do you have, as shown in the About box.
What is the make and model of graphics card, and is GPU acceration enabled for the renderer?
Thanks for the quick response. I am editing a project that has multicams and 3-5 levels of nesting. I noticed that when I go into nested seqences, the delay gets shorter and shorter.
With respect to info:
Version: Pro CC with updates installed
OS: Mac OS 10.9.1
Footage: mixture of mpeg and H264
Only browser running in addition. CPU/Memory don't show a load.
Machine: Mac Pro (2x3Ghz Quad) with 24GB RAM
Thanks - very much appreciate any help on this.
PPro: 7.2.1 (4)
Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT
I don't think I have GPU acceleration
Also, quality of playback set to 1/4.
You're probably right that GPU acceleration is not enabled; your graphics card is not on the list of supported cards: http://www.adobe.com/products/premiere/tech-specs.html
Still, it's worth double-checking because 7.2.1 (and 7.2.0) introduced a problem with older AMD GPUs. Please go to File>Project Settings>General and check the Renderer setting.
Video Rendering and Playback is set to "Mercury Playback Engine Software Only".
Also, if I set Work Area to some spot and press Enter to render out the preview, the delay on playback is still there. Right now seeing 8-second delays.
Tried reinstalling Premier CC - didn't help.
Here's another interesting bit of information - if I mute and turn off all tracks on the nested sequence, I still see a 4-second delay before playback starts.
Another interesting bit: if I shorten the equence, the time to playback speeds up.
That is, if I have Sequence A which includes segments from Sequence B, removing half of segments sequence A speeds up time to playback.
OK, after some experimentation, it seems the following is the case:
1. Time to playback is not affected by the footage (muting/hiding internal footage/audio still results in delays)
2. Reducing number of segments in top-most sequence with multiple levels of nesting reduces the delay.
It seems to me that you have something that crawls the nested sequences and slows exponentially as the nesting increases. Please fix. In the meantime, I'll be pulling out sequences into sub-blocks so that I can edit them without signifianct delays... sub-optimal, but will work for now.
Hi, any thoughts on how else this could be resolved? I am on a trial now and would like to know if this is resolvable before I fully commit. The idea that nested sequences slow down simply due to nesting seems pretty ridiculous. :/
BTW, we already have a paid account (ping me for details). This is the second - I am considering whether we should scale with Premier :/

That's not normal behavior. Something is wrong, though admittedly I'm at a loss to say what.
Guys, I am happy to do whatever it taskes to solve this. Want access to my machine through join.me or other method? Can we do a quick call to try to diagnose the problem? Do you have debugging/profiling tools you'd like me to download that could tell you the call path and where the delays take place?
I've read of Adobe being able to do this, but I'm just a user like you.
Ah. Thanks! I'll reach out to support when I have a minute.
