    HELP !!! With Preview Playback.

    XFR Punisher

      I recently installed Premiere Pro CS5 and have had problems with playback in the preview window.

      I can't drag the play head and preview the video as I used to be able to with cs3.

      If I import video, all I get is the audio and the odd frame of video in preview.


      I have been reading about the 'cs5 mercury playback engine'

      When I start a new project, the 'Video Rendering and Playback' Renderer: is locked at 'Mercury Playback Engine Software Only' and is greyed.


      I have an ATI 4850 Graphics card, does this mean I cant use the cs5 mercury playback engine ? And if not how do I preview my video while editing?


      Thanks in advance.
