high cpu count and low cpu clock speeds aren't optimal for premiere, but it should handle SD proxies fine. are the proxies local or over the network? if you place/create some proxies on the local 1tb ssd is performance any better? if it works properly with local files, the network connection/configuration might be at fault. you could also experiment with different codecs and containers for proxies to see if another will perform better.
thanks for your reply.
I have placed the media files on the local SSD without an improvement.
Even when I render the timeline the playback has framedrops.
Could it be that the GeForce gtx 1080 is not supported properly, yet?
I am looking forward reading any new hints!
the gtx 1080 should work fine with premiere. you can try changing the mpe to "software only" to see if mpe cuda is causing problems. if you have any other display i/o devices, you can try disabling them and the mercury transmit.
Hi RoninEdits, hi Bill,
thank you for your replies! We have disabled and enabled the mercury playback engine without any improvement changes.
Some of the parts Bill pointed out in his article were changed by us. Especially the background processes.
What we have figured out today is, that somehow our hardware / software combination doesn't like the GoPro cineform codec. So we have changed the proxy codec to MPEG2. After he is finished transcoding all the files, we will stress the system and see if this improves our performance.
I keep you updated.
I know this thread was started a while ago, but I might have a really simple solution.
I've been having all sorts of playback problems. Very steppy, stuttering image. Tried everything I could think of, and every solution I could find in the photos.
Stumbled on the solution accidentally.
Try undocking your Timeline from the Program Monitor. Run your timeline in it's own Window. This was like flipping a switch for me. Docked, it's steppy as hell, undocked in it's own window, smooth as glass... full rresolution Prores 422 HD.
On a Mac running 2015.2, don't know if it's the same under windows.
