    Editing ProRes HQ multicam, 3 angles, is laggy/choppy

    Graham Hutchins Level 1

      Hi there,


      I'm on a 2013 Mac Pro with 64 GB RAM.  I have 3 streams of 1080i29.97 ProRes HQ concert footage that I'm trying to edit in multicam mode and I'm getting lag/choppy playback about 5-10 seconds into playback.


      I've tried the various toggle on/off mercury transmit, openCL, audio etc.  Nothing works.  I'm currently transcoding my footage to DNxHD, as some users have posted that as a workaround.


      I know that drive IO is not an issue.


      This issue has been asked about at various times earlier, but I was wondering if there has been any progress in actually fixing this bug.  If anyone at Adobe would care to chime in, that would be appreciated.

      From what I gather, this is a ProRes/QT32server issue, which seems to plague the entire Adobe suite. ProRes is a widely used format for professional acquisition, from cameras to decks and for deliverables.  One would expect a company that produces "professional" software to be compatible with established workflows.

      Thank you for your time.
