My memory isn't perfect, but I thought I read a while back that you should not be using Spaces with Adobe apps.
I'd hate to think that was true, Jim, but of course nothing would surprise
me when it comes to the relationship between those two companies.
The thing is I have been using Spaces with Adobe for 4+ years now. Never a
If you let it sit for a little while, does it eventually play? I seem to remember a bug a while back where PrPro would lose sync with all the clips every time you tabbed away, and then it had to re-sync with all the clips when you came back, meaning that playback wasn't available for a period of time (sometimes up to a couple minutes). Perhaps that bug (or a version thereof) has resurfaced?
Thanks for the thought, David. I just tested it (spending 15 minutes away

Bummer… oh well. Worth a try, I guess.
I've had this happen before as well. Mac Pro 5,1, 6-core, 32GB RAM, 10.6.8. It only started happening a month or so ago. Anyway, same deal... happens if I leave Pr and do something else like Firefox or whatnot, then return. Sometimes it plays again in a minute or two, but twice now it's just refused for a long time.

the timeline to not play. Oh, also...the preview footage also does not play.
I think Adobe will be hearing from me after the holiday.
Roll your computer back to when it was working properly. (Time machine)
Maybe one of those insidious little secret upgrades that Apple and MS (and Adobe for that matter) has caused a glitch.
