One other note CS5 is a trial, cs4 is the full version. Also have audition 3 which works perfectly.
The trial does not work with HDV, only DV.
Has your CS4 version reverted to trial status? Any presets available for AVCHD, HDV, XDCAM?
Have you started Win7 with a fresh install?
How many processes are running? Check with Process Explorer.
Look at this link: Some suggestions...
I know the cs5 trial does not do HDV. CS4 is not a trial and works fine other then the playback issue. Win 7 was a clean install of everything. Only process pulling CPU cycles other then 1 or 2 % is premiere. That is in the high 90's. (as far as it can go total is 100%). Does not seem to matter how many apps are open. What ever it is appears to be related to premiere. When i shift output to the intensity pulling some of the load off the cpu (I think) Premiere will do a little more before it blows up. Most of the footage I am using was captured using on location, and or premiere 1.5 and a matrox card on a different machine and then transfered to my editor.
One additional note. Premiere does not crash. It just stops. hit space bar again and it is good for another 15 frames. In CS4 load seems split betweem adobe importer module and premiere. Connect black magic card and load drops from 70 - 90% total to about 60%. Again load up with any type of effects and stop.
Ignoring the Intensity card for a second, if you're running PPro on its own, this symptom is usually one of two possibilities:
- bad display drivers (don't assume that Win7 will download the correct ones, go get the sanctioned 197.x drivers from the nVidia site)
- bad audio drivers. If you have the 'right' drivers for your system, try downloading the 'Asio4All' set (google around on this forum for other posts on this topic).
I would probably remove the Intensity card & uninstall its drivers, troubleshoot the above, then when it's playing correctly, add back the Intensity card. The card is the other factor that could be playing into this (for instance, their own sound driver options could be the trigger here), but I'm not sure what to offer for Black Magic troubleshooting suggestions.
Updating the nvidia driver did the trick when using the monitor in the computer. Black magic card still funky, but that doesn't worry as much. Can still use it unless I have lots of processing to do. Thanks again.
