am running a brand new 17" mac book pro with CS5 premiere and I'm getting no playback - I can scrub the timeline, render all fine, but hitting space plays for about 10-20 frames and stops WTF??!?
have tried with old comps, new comps, heavily layered and jsut a single clip and I cannot get premiere to playback beyond 1 second
also tried this just now on a desktop 4 core tower - same problem
I know about the mercury engine, but have seen youtube clips and posts stating that it actually improves performance on laptops
after effects and other graphics hungry programs run fine too.
Anyone have an answer?!
