>I'm using standard MJPEG AVI files
There's really nothing "standard" about MJPEG files these days. Back in the analog days, it was a popular digitization format, but in this digital age, I don't think you'll find any video cameras using them. And Premiere really does seem to be centered around the common professional video camera formats. Using other media seems to be hit or miss with Premiere.
My guess would be that something in Premiere changed under the hood with CS4, as you're not the first to report this issue with MJPEG files. You might try converting to a more standard video format before import.
I use the BlackMagic Intensity Pro capture card for all my videos and MJPEG is pretty much the only thing I get good performance with.
OK. For future reference, you should always list any third-party hardware/software in the original question. Whether or not you think it's relevant, always list it.
In this case, it's my understanding that BM does not yet have proper CS4 drivers. If that is the case, this could easily explain your issue, and you'll have to wait for BM to update their driver.
I'm having the same issues, lots of money spent and can't PREVIEW my project!! I have enough hardware, dedicated drives, even completely REFORMATTED it with Vista, twice... no matter what kind of project I create, I can't even playback one of the sample videos miscrosoft provides that are only 3MB, with no other apps open, no virus software at all ...
NVidia card with the latest drivers ...
GIVE US A PATCH ADOBE!! Please...
GIVE US DETAILS....Ocala.
>I'm having the same issues
Now to me that means you also have a BlackMagic card and need to take this up with them. Is that true?
For now it appears the only thing BlackMagic users can do is wait for a driver update. Still no sign of one, but apparently they're working on it.

My money is on the fact "we will never see it". Adobe have made major changes to how PP CS4 plays back and scrubs and previews etc.
My blackmagic codec mjpeg 6 bit codec is avaible to render with. I was able to render a clip and then play it back in Adobe. The other Blackmagic codecs weren't available though and I didn't try to watch it with card.
Just wanted to let you know I was able to import that one blackmajoc codec and it even played realtime at 100 quality 1920.
