OK, I have had this problem now for quite a while and still without without a fix?..........
The format I am using is 1920x1080 AVCHD .mts files. Also .MP4
The issue I have is once I have it on the timeline and cut it into small clips, then add basic Cross Dissolves, it drops frames on playback? At this point the timeline is yellow and it is not yet rendered but surely it should be able to play back a few simple dissolves as it did in Premiere CS6 for the past few years? If I turn off Accelerated GPU then obviously the transitions will turn red and I should expect problems until they are rendered!
I have tried everything on various PC's, from uninstalling everything, re-installing new hardware (even Motherboard) and software. I have windows 7 on my home pc, which is an i7, 16bg ram, but does not have a Cuda Card fitted. I have installed CS6 and I can place my recorded footage AVCHD .MTS .MP4 on the timeline and it fly’s like nobody's business! I can add dissolves and things in between clips and even though the transitions are red to indicate render needed, it plays back like a dream..... No stutter, No Jitter, just smooth playback, as if it was already rendered.
However, on my main Video Editing PC which has the same i7, 16gb ram and a Cuda Card, or my Top End same spec Laptop PC, it just wont play back without dropping frames and stuttering through each dissolve? (Even though the line is Yellow) and it is using the Cuda Cards? I record and edit using the same AVCHD .MTS and MP4 files as I have done for many years before upgrading to CC.
I have rolled back Windows, and CC to many earlier versions without success. I have managed after lot's of attempts to locate a few "support technicians" < I use the title very loosely because after having a remote session with all 3 people from Adobe, I soon realised that they did not have a clue and were probarbly sat in a shed at the bottom of a garden somewhere in India? I have today waited on another "higher technician" to call me his morning at 10am. It is now 8pm and still no call? They are just useless, but are happy to take my monthly subscription?
This issue has been with me now for a few weeks since upgrading to Premiere CC and I have literally tried everything without success. My only option now is to roll back to windows 7, install CS6 from disc and stay with that. I know there will be some additions I may lose from CC but at least I wont be paying for a product that is faulty and with Shite support!
