Let's start at the beginning. When you say "After capturing DV clip," do you mean that you are Capturing from a miniDV tape camera over FireWire?
What is the Project/Sequence Preset, that you are Capturing into?
What are the Playback settings in your Project?
The answers will give people a lot to work with, to solve your issue.
BTW - welcome to the forum,
I captured from a mini-DV tape. I am at my day job currently so will have to double check my settings when I get home tonight. I have been playing around with the playback settings when I was trying to get my external monitor to work. I have been using 6.0 and a DVStorm until about 2 weeks ago. Quite a change.

Thanks for reporting. Doing the Capture in PrPro from miniDV tape via FW is as good as it gets.
That footage should be perfect, so it is most likely a Playback setting. CS4 added some choices for those, and as I do not have CS4, I won't even begin to start pointing you, or suggesting what you should use. That will get messy in a hurry, due to my feeble memory.
However, if you post your settings (maybe screen-caps of the dialog screens), some CS4 maven WILL be able to direct you.
I am experiencing this same issue. Premiere CS4.1 just stopped playing. I can scrub clips and see them fine in my Program window, but neither the space bar nor the "play" button in my Program window will make the sequence play.
I can copy (cut and paste) all the clips on the timeline into a new project (not just a new sequence, mind you), and I have full playback functionality again.
It wouldn't be an issue (I'd just cut and paste into a new project), but when I do this (cut and paste clips into a new project), I lose all my implemented FX --namely all the cross-fades I put on the audio clips.
Are you also using Clips Captured from a miniDV tape via FW and PrPro?
If you change the Thumbnail Display (in the Track Headers) to Name Only (no thumbnails), does the playback work better?
Have you updated your video card's driver to the very latest?
Have you Rendered your Timeline?
What is Hardware Acceleration set to?
Just some thoughts, and good luck,
Files are from a RED camera (feature film).
Thumnails are already off (I never use thumbnails on the timeline).
Driver is definitely latest (NVIDIA for CUDA).
Timeline is rendered.
Not sure about hardware accelerator.
Frame size of RED footage? I've had difficulty with the RED plug-in and
4.5K frame sizes.
Yeah, it's all 4k. What's 4.5k?
Yeah, it's all 4k. What's 4.5k?
Have you tried updating both Pr and the RED plug-in? Did you try dropping your Program Monitor display resolution down to "Quarter Resolution"?
I thought 4k was the max RED would shoot. (We use square pixels, 2:1)
I've got the latest updates of everything from Adobe and RED, and I edit with a 1k timeline (pull it into a 2k for output at the end of the process), so there's no issue with the render size there.
What else you got?
Premiere CS4.1 just stopped playing.
The latest version of Premiere CS4 is 4.2.1.
I edit with a 1k timeline (pull it into a 2k for output at the end of the process)
Why not edit in a matching 4K sequence then pull it into a 2K for output? Putting 4K footage into a 1K timeline requires scaling on the fly and during render. Not conducive to a smooth editing experience.
I posted Adobe Premiere CS4.1 because I'm used to just typing that to let people know it's the version that accommodates the RED plug-in, but we're actually running CS4.2.1.
It seems like 4K footage viewed at 1/4 or even 1/2 resolution (though even 1/2 seems like it can cause some hiccups) is blurry/sub-par visually. Do you not feel that this is the case?
We also have a couple shots that are only 2K (shot for slo-mo), so we would need to take that into account for those sequences, though I suppose this isn't a super big deal... we'd just do the "reels" with the 2K footage on a 2K timline (we also took advantage of the 4K footage being output at 2K to resize and key a few shots, so those would need to be on a 2K timeline as well).
Quarter rez is like built-in proxy editing, and works well here. Just follow the workflow guide for the latest version of the RED plug-in.
The new workflow guide says this:
Please note that the presets have been updated. For the new fractional resolution feature to be enabled, you must be using a preset from this release. Pre-existing timelines will need to be copy/pasted into a newly created sequence for the new decode options to become available.
Does that apply to you?
The latest version of the plug-in also has a "new" Source Settings dialog. Format/resolution are now done on-the-fly from the Program Monitor display settings. I include that info only on the off chance that you haven't noticed it yet.
We're actually out of post for video (the hang was happening while I was working on audio), but I will be sure to make sure I'm taking all this into account when we start the next project (next month).
Also... the RED site shows 1.7.0 as the most recent RED plug-in for Premiere. I assume this is the version you're refering to, correct?

Correct. And you're welcome.
