I am using a trial version of Premiere Pro CS5.5. I have been using iMovie for some time and want to make the switch to Premiere Pro. I imported a clip and it plays back very choppy in both the source panel and the program panel. I am using Mac OS X 10.6.8. and this same video plays perfect on iMovie. What can I do to improve playback? I created a new sequence directly from the clip so the settings match exactly.
So, I just figured it out... On the "Output" button menu under the video in the source and program panels, I moused over playback resolution and selected "Full." Such a simple solution, I can't believe after googling and searching the forum, I never came accross this answer. Maybe this will help someone else.
Thanks, but I figured it out... very simple solution!!
