    Abismal Playback Performance

      We've been trying out Premiere Pro CS3, and the first thing we notice is that playback of the timeline is horrendously choppy and uneven. Even for a project with a single clip in a single sequence and no effects. We've tried with a few different formats/codecs, and some relatively modest frame sizes such as 960x540. Premiere Pro 1.5 works perfectly fine, and Sony Vegas even plays back at full frame rate, so its most likely nothing to do with our systems. CS3 lags and surges and stutters so much it makes editing anything involving timing virtually impossible.

      We'd be curious to know if anyone else has similar problems.
