Have you rendered your timeline (by pressing Enter)?
When you render your timeline, the yellow-orange "render" line above the clips on your timeline will turn green and you'll get much smoother playback.
Meantime, do ensure you've got the latest drivers for your system by going to either your computer manufacturer's support site (HP, Dell, etc.) or by going to the nVidia site. Don't trust Windows 10 to give you the best drivers. (Particularly that GeForce driver, which nVidia just recently re-issued.)
Also, go to Premiere Elements' Preferences (under the Edit menu) and UNCHECK the option to use graphics acceleration. This feature only interfaces with Intel graphics systems and can actual cause problems for other graphics cards.
Thanks for the in depth response. I've tried those. Latest driver, and i disabled hardware acceleration. No luck. Fortunately, the glitch doesn't happen all the time, and it's quite literally just that one filter. I can live with it. Thanks again.
To isolate the issue further, can you please explain,
1. Whether you are facing this issue on playback or at the time of applying dreamy look effect?
2. Are you facing this issue in Quick/Expert mode?
