    Playback performance great, scrubbing slow?

      Premiere Pro is funny.

       

      I can play back 1080p DSLR clips (yellow bar) very smoothly (with effects applied it's also smooth!).  But scrubbing in the timeline is slow. 

       

      To be more specific: if scrubbing when there is a rendered file associated with the clip (green bar) then scrubbing is nice and zippy.

      If I simply drag and drop a clip into the timeline (yellow bar) then scrubbing is noticeably laggy. 

       

      Smooth playback at Full Resolution/framerate, but laggy scrubbing... is that normal?
