Can someone please advise, I'm running an i920 Clocked to 3.6 with 12gb of memory and a Quadro FX4800 with Premiere CS5, I've even downloaded the latest 197.85 driver and am experiencing seriously choppy play back with just 2 streams, one with opacity turned down slightly and get crap play back with Cross dissolves or simple dip to blacks , it sort of pauses then plays catch up when trying to play the files - this is seriously frustrating and nothing like the advertised videos.
The files are AVCHD 1080/60p files from my Panasonic TM700, playing a straight file on the timeline is sweet and no problem but add anything else and it plays like crap.I've even tried to reduce playback to 1/2 and 1/4 with no improvement.
The Footage, Scratch and project files are on seperate 500gb single platter fast drives (i've checked) and so know its not my drives / IO.
Does anyone know if its the AVCHD files or Premiere and has anyone else experienced / experiencing this???
You might do a forum search for 60p
I didn't pay much attention since my Canon only goes to 60i, but I **think** I've read of other problems with 60p
I am having the same problem. Working with Canon 5D 1080p footage @24 fps, using the DSLR preset for 1080/24p, and running up to two layers of footage, some ultra key applied in places.
System is i7980x, 6GB RAM (1600mhz), Quadro fx4800, running windows 7 64 bit.
Everything was running like butter a week ago (same sequence, settings, effects), but now RT playback is too choppy for practical use.
UPDATE: I just loaded the latest 197.90 driver and playback has returned to original awesomeness. hope it works for you as well!
