I have a similar problem. I open Premiere Pro and I can't see anything in either of the two preview windows! I can hear sound and work in the timeline fine, but I cannot see any video previews! Composite video doesn't work EVER.
I'm running Premiere from the Master Collection
Vista Home Premium 32
2 x 1gb RAM
Intel e6600 Core2Duo @ 3.12 ghz
nVidia 8800 GTS 320mb
I just updated to the latest nVidia graphics drivers.
What is going on here? I am NOT satisfied with CS4 at all.
I got it - Do you have 2 monitors?
Try to run the up in the other monitor it'll work,
you need to tweak your display adapter man.
I don't have 2 monitors.
It's bizarre. I can scrub through video and see previews in the timeline, but I can't get video to play through in the preview!
Its video overlay settings issue I think - just try to tweak your Video card
Which card do you have?
BTW nice family name - are you Jewish too?
8800 GTS 320mb. I have the nVidia Control Panel and all that, but I don't know what to start messing with. I just realized I have a similar problem when I use Photoshop. With GPU acceleration turned on, I can only see the canvas when I pick it up and try to drag it. When the canvas is stationary I can't see what I'm working on, even though I can use all the tools; same problem as in Premiere.
What should I do? Thanks for your help man.
And yeah, I'm of Jewish descent.
I have ATI card so I can't really help you
but try to play with the overlay settings.
BTW do you have the latest drivers?
maybe its as simple as that!
Hmmm I have the latest Beta drivers. I don't know what the overlay settings are or how to fix them...
Bump. Can anyone explain this issue? It's really a massive inconvenience.
Uninstall the beta drivers and go one driver back.
I installed the Beta drivers because the regular ones don't work either.
Go back yet another driver.
If you have ASUS GamerOSD installed (comes with the other useful stuff on the graphics card disk), it may interfere with playback and photoshop. Try uninstalling it, or just disabling it in the ASUS ''display settings'' tab. It worked for me, your results may vary. :-)
That GamerOSD program captures video from screen (should be useful for gamers), so it has the potential to cause trouble with video playback. You might have somewhat similar program installed along with the graphics card drivers.
It might be as easy as disabling Windows Aero scheme.
Thank you so much! Disabling Aero fixed all of my problems! (Also, thanks for the suggestion about the Gamer OSD. I did have that installed, but disabling Aero solved the problem.)
I like Aero though, so I want to leave it on for times when I'm not using Adobe. Is there any way to force CS4 programs to toggle off Aero before opening?
Dual Boot maybe.
On vista (which is my case) it is enough to check the ``disable desktop composition'' in the compatibility tab of premiere shortcut -- the Aero scheme shuts off automatically once you start the application, and comes back on when you close it.
I guess it would not help with 64-bit version of photoshop, but premiere is still 32-bit. :-)
I still wonder what was the issue in the original poster's situation: they run WinXP, so that should not be the issue with Aero scheme.
Hi - here is the original poster talking.
ya I didn't try to do anything with the WinXp problem - since I have multi boot machine (WinXP, Vista 64bit and Leopard[Hackintosh])
My main OS is vista 64 - and I didn't have any trouble previewing video in this OS
the WIN XP OS is kinda of a backup OS that if my Vista crashes I can continue working on WINXP - So I didn't have time to try to make Premiere's playback work.
Maybe I need to install fresh drivers to WINXP...
