    Tons of lag previewing 4k drone footage. Have a decent comp. Please help


      Hey I'm trying to edit 4k drone footage in Premiere pro and the footage lags a ton in the preview window. I have it at 1/4 already and the lag is making it impossible to edit. I have a decent build, so I'm confused on why I'm getting tons of lag. My build is:


      CPU - Intel i7 7700k 4.2Ghz (not overclocked)

      Ram - 32GB
      Storage - I only have a Samsung 850 Evo 250GB SSD, but I have most of my files on a 2TB hard drive. Still using about 60% of the SSD though.
      Graphics - EVGA GTX 1080 8Gb

      When I am previewing the footage, task manager puts Premiere at about 50% of my CPU and 4.5GB of memory.


      I run games on ultra high quality with great fps, so I'm just confused on why I'm lagging so hard on 1/4 quality 4k footage. Do I not have a good enough build for 4k? Or is there some quick fix that I'm not doing? Appreciate any help, I'm not a huge software savvy guy so bare with me.
