However I've been using Premiere for quite a few years I've never experienced this issue before. Premiere pro is being unstable, inaccurate and slow. Playback is just not working unless I render the sequence. Clicking on the timeline is a pain. It doesn't point where I clicked it often doesn't even react thus being unusable, I can hear the computer working continuously. I am working on a studio session video with just a few effects on every clip (RGB Curves and Magic Bullet Looks) so it's not a big project at all.
Premiere Pro CC 2014
CPU: Intel Core i7 2600
GPU: Gigabyte Geforce GTX 770 @2GB VRAM
RAM: 8 gb @1600 mhz
Premiere is also installed on a 120 GB SSD and I have 2 scratch hard drives for media.
CUDA is turned on.
What could possibly be the solution to this issue?
Thank you in advance
Please report the exact version of Premiere Pro. There have been 4 releases under the CC2014 banner, and the latest (2014.2) includes several performance-related fixes.
Does switching the Renderer to Software-Only make any difference?
