When you say preset I am assuming you mean for the Mecury Playback Engine.
It is set to "Mercury Playback Engine GPU Accelerated"
If that is not what you mean are you able to explain a little more.
Further to reply.
When I first used Premiere CS5 I am sure it played without stopping and scrubbed smoothly but it did have the yellow line.
What has changed since it started to stop playing and scubbing smoothly is that I have changed my monitors from dual monitors (Neovo) using the digital connections to the dual monitors (EIZO) using Display Port connections.
Not sure if this is just a coincidence.
OK sorry just twigged to your preset question.
I am using Digital SLR > 1080p > 1080p25
I am in Australia hence the 25p
The camera can shoot different formats. If you know that is correct et it that way. If you are not sure; drop a video clip on the New Item Icon located at the bottom of the project panel and that will create the correct sequence for you automatically.
It is definetly the right footage Canon 1080 25p in a DSLR > 1080p > 1080p25 preset.
I just renedered the whole timeline - about 3 minutes of footage - got the green line - still have the playback/scrubbing problem.
The Mercury playback engine is set to GPU accelerate so the software is seeing the GPU (Nvidia Quadro FX 4800 which is only a week old).
This footage at least played OK after rendering in CS4.
I must have some setup problem either hardware or software. Can't figure out what though.
Yellow line is normal in GPU mode. It should playback in real time.
What is your disk drive setup?
Though brand new, please check the nVidia video driver for an update. Your card probably shipped with one that is 3-4 versions old.
I don't have CS5 yet, but Hunt is right about old drivers coming with cards
I don't know the number that came with my 285 card, 'cause I downloaded v197.45 on 4-16 and used it... after reading a message on the forum that that version had just been released by nVidia to improve 64bit performance for CS5
I have one set of drives set up as Raid 1 and a second set of drives set up as Raid 0. Have tried the video on both sets of drives and get the same problem. Even tried putting the scratch disks on a seperate drive.
I am runing Windows 7 pro 64 bit, Two 2.66 Ghz quad core processors (not hyper threading) and 12 GB RAM so it is a reasonable sized machine.
I will double check the drivers for the graphics card but I am sure I have the latest as we only downloaded it last Wednesday (3 days ago).
This is all starting to sound like a hardware/setup problem in my PC.
I am sure I have Premiere set up right! The Mercury Engine (GPU mode) is running.
I am also sure that when I first installed it earlier in the week it was playing OK with the Quadro FX 4800 GPU (maybe I just imagined it). When I first installed CS5 I was running a Nvidia GeForce GTX 280 graphics card, which is not supported, and DSLR video played smoothly on CS5 timeline.
Things that have changed since I thought it was playing OK with the FX 4800.
1. Changed from two Neovo Monitors running via digital output to Two EIZO Monitors running via Display Port output. (tried switching the monitors back - no change)
2. Uninstalled Matrox RTX 2 drivers
3. Installed Twixtor Pro Version 5
I don't consider myself a novice with all this - have been doing this for a number of years (12) but this has me buggered!
I am about to install CS5 on my laptop (once it has been upgraded to Windows 64 bit) so will be interested to see how video plays on that even though it won't have the Mercury GPU acceleration.
So for the long diatribe but thought it might be useful.

Some presets and formats give you options for
Preview playback. This might affect the scrubbing.
Otherwise: As soon as I saw "Matrox" in your hardware I suspected this may figure somewhere in your issue.
Yeah I am wondering if I have uninstalled the Matrox drivers properly because I am sure it was working before I uninstalled them. I noticed the problem straight after the uninstall. Maybe they sabotaged me for having the audacity to delet their system (ha! ha! only joking).
Will need to go back and check to make sure it was a clean uninstall.
Further was thinking I might uninstall Premiere Pro and then reinstall it in case uninstalling the Matrox drivers took some of the Prem Pro files with it!
Have now uninstalled Premiere and reinstalled - no luck
Have also uninstalled the graphics card driver and downloaded the latest one from the Nvidia website - no luck
Looks like I have fixed the problem.
Not sure if it is a coincidence but it all started to work when I uninstalled Neoscene's Cinform.
Great glad it all worked out in the end.
