Premiere CC 2014 playback and rendering issues

Definitely having problems that I wasn't having just a couple of days ago.
Timeline, 4 minute music video mainly7 all on V1 and then V2 with just a few short shots overlayed using opacity/screen.  I use this technique a lot and always worked more than fine in Premiere CC.
So, I made some minor changes today.  Select in/out on entire project and hit render in/out.
First thing I notice is the progress bar keeps jumping back and forward; ie - 20.0% then 19.8% then 20.2% and so on (two steps forward one step back).
Then noticed...  I hit render and it says rendering 1 of 20 previews...  ie 500 frames.  Then it gradually changes... 1 of 21 previews 510 frames.. 1 of 22 previews 520 frames etc etc and etcetera... and basically never end... just hangs around 98.8% until I was waiting for over half an hour for something that would usually take seconds in the previous version.  I keep having to hit cancel on the render.
Then, I look at the render bar on the timeline.. all is green (zoomed in, no yellow anywhere).. hit play and it pauses for a split second here and there.  Completely randomly.  Also certain shots just completely freeze.
I didn't have any of these problems in the previous version of CC and at present it's not suitable for client playback.  Nowhere near it.
Any updates?

I selected the entire project that was completely rendered and hit render and it did 0 of 2 frames 1 video preview.. then 4 frames 2 video previews up to about 50 previews.  Eventually looks like it has rendered.  Hit play and the video clips its pausing on are now completely green shots.  Not had this on PPro or CC before.  I have a Quadro 2000 and usually runs perfectly.  In fact there is not chance of it being my card.  It's definitely to do with the update.

  • Premiere Pro CS5 Playback and Performance Issues

    I upgraded (2) separate editing work stations to CS5 from CS4 about a month ago. I moved from 4 to 5 to try and get rid of some problems which both work stations were encountering.
    The problems since the upgrade are similiar: playback from timeline has intermittent audio drop out and video going to black during playback, (new one)-video locked up but audio kept playing-system hung and had to be rebooted.
    Also, when clicking around on the timeline or scrubbing the timeline, Premiere crashes.
    This type of performance on playout or timeline usage is consistent on both machines which have indentical setups and builds. None of this happens all the time but happens enough to causes problems with workflow. We edit on the work stations, dub files to playback system for air, and use a shared server to move files back and forth as needed but files are always stored locally instead of using straight from server.
    These machines are:
    Premiere Pro CS5.02
    OS  WIndows 7 Pro 64 bit
    12 GB Ram, DDR3-1333 (6-2GB modules)
    CPU Intel Xeon Quad Core [email protected] GHZ, 2 processors, 8 MB Cache
    500 GB SATA 2 hard drive, 7200 RPM, 32 MC (System Drive)...309 GB of space avail
    (3) 1 TB SATA 2 hard drives, 7200RPM, 32 MC (3 TB, RAID0 STorage) 2.16 TB of space avail
    Nvidia GE Force 9800 GT Graphics card, DUAL DVI, 1 GB
    REaltek High Def Audio, Drivers
    (1) monitor in use
    output of system runs to ADVC-700 breakout box to feed playback system
    I have all of my software installed on C: (309 GB of 500 GB avail)
    I have all of my videos files stored on D: (Raid Storage with 2.16 TB of 3 TB avail)
    The only changes I've made since installing CS5 would be to change the auto save from 20 minutes to 60 minutes. Don't know if an auto save would cause an issue on playback as I've noted above.
    I'm not a computer whiz by any stretch of the imagination but I can follow directions if given for testing/eval.

    Do the PPBM5 Benchmark and send the results to me by PM, in addition to sending the results to Bill as indicated. I'll have a look at what might be going on here.

  • Playback and Rendering issues when GPU acceleration is enabled

    I'm using the new MacPro with dual AMD FirePro D300. When I enable GPU Acceleration (Open CL) I can no longer play through an entire sequence. It specifically has issues playing through any layered graphics or titles, but seems to play with those disabled. I have tried having "Composite In Linear Color" enabled and disabled, and neither seemed to make a difference. It's the same deal when rendering. If I have titles, and use GPU Acceleration it jumbles clips, cuts to black or static, all manner of weirdness. Is there something I'm missing?
    An example of what playback looks like if I have titles and GPU Acceleration enabled.

    This computer thing seems complicated enough that if your system works better with GPU accel off, that's you best performance. I understand they've been trying to sort out these sorts of issues but there's so many dang variables, and trying to build software that interlinks with other complicated software is something no other NLE or Grading program does. That throws even more kinks into the list.

  • Premiere Pro CS6 - playback and C300 issues

    I seem to be having an issue with Premiere Pro playback.
    At the moment, I'm looking through a rough assemble I've done on a PPro sequence and then the playback will start getting choppy. The only solution seems to be rebooting PPro, which is obviously very frustrating. The footage is C300 files, stored on my RAID. Why is this happening?
    My system details are as follows:
    MBP early 2011, 16GB RAM, 512 GB SSD
    6TB Pegasus R6 RAID connected via Thunderbolt
    30" ACD
    Mac OS 10.7.4 , PPro 6.0.1
    I use a 2-screen setup, so the 30" monitor will have the PPro tools and seq etc, whilst I use the 17" MBP screen as a viewing monitor.
    Another issue I had which is more annoying that anything is that when I imported the rushes from my C300, PPro decided to import a fairly long (80") interview as loads of separate .MXF files RATHER than joining them together, which FCP seemed to have no problem in doing...How do I sort that out?

    I am having precisely the same problem as bricklaneeditor, and have exactly the same setup: MBP early 2011, 16GB RAM, 512 GB SSD,
    30" ACD, Mac OS 10.7.4 , PPro 6.0.1
    Indeed, a restart of Premiere Pro always fixes the problem -- for a while.  I've also seen similar behavior in Media Composer 6.0.1 once or twice so am wondering whether it's an issue with this machine/OS, as the playback software architectures are so different on those two NLE's. 
    I should also mention that the problem is not isolated to any particular file format -- have seen it with timelines containing 7D footage, HDV and ProRes files.  
    I strongly suspect some sort of problem on either Apple's or Adobe's end with the GPU in this machine, as it is ATI and not Nvidia -- and is, as far as I know, the only non-CUDA GPU, at least on the Mac side, certified to work with the CS6 Mercury Playback Engine.   
    Also wondering whether an over-the-top or a clean install of Mountain Lion might shake things up enough to make a difference.  (Otherwise I'm in no big hurry to upgrade my OS.)  Is anyone seeing this problem with PPro under 10.8?  Might be worth installing 10.8 over an external HDD clone of the System drive and booting temporarily from the clone just to see if the problem persists in Premiere.  
    Anyone have any thoughts on these possibilities? 

  • What sequence setting would you use to edit 1280 x1080 DVCProHD (P2) and 1920 x 1080 AVCHD (Sony) in FCP. Experiencing Quality and rendering issues.

    What sequence setting would you use to edit both 1280 x1080 DVCProHD (P2) and 1920 x 1080 AVCHD (Sony) in a single timeline in FCP. I'm experiencing quality and rendering issues.  I've tried numerous settings but can't seem to figure this one out.  Thanks for your assistance.

    Although you can combine the avchd 1920x1080 material with prores 1920x1080 in the same timeline, you might land up saving time just converting everything to 1920x1080 prores 422.   You'd probably reduce the amount of rendering while you're working and exporting when you're done by a great deal.  This workflow will require much more drive space.

  • IOS 4.2.1: Intermittent Playback and Static Issue Resolution - JVC KD-AVX77

    Hey guys, it appears that iOS 4.2.1 fixes the issue with the intermittent playback and static issues that I was having in my car. I just played two songs continuously with no issues.
    I have the JVC KD-AVX77, and with iOS 4.1, I was having nothing but problems with music playback. It had got to the point that it was intolerable to use my iPhone in my car.
    I am extremely pleased that it seems like Apple took everyone's feedback about this issue, and came up with a fix to it. Too bad that I've already stored my car for the winter.
    Please post your own findings. I know this issue was across multiple head units and car manufacturers.

    Same problem here. I have a 3gs and this intermitent static/hiss/lag happens when i connect through the usb on my toyota prius. This problem did not happen before the latest software upgrade. I have switched out the cables. Also tested on an ipod touch without the software upgrade and had no problem. It's a crazy annoying problem! Sounds a bit like listening to vinyl. I have also tried switching to airplane mode, but that didn't do anything. I have also reset the iphone while connected to the usb (the same way i frequently have to because of an earlier problem i've had with the usb failing to work in the car at all...) and that has not fixed it. I'm going to try connecting via bluetooth today and see what happens - i'm guessing that will be fine, but i don't like to listen via bluetooth.

  • Playback and render issues Premiere Pro CS6 on Mac

    I have been having very "skippy" and sluggish issues when it comes to playback and editing. I have deleted all the old render files from my project and my hard drive, but nothing seems to work. Can someone please help me? I'm not sure if it is a space issue or what, but I haven't had much of these problems before. I know it's not a sequence settings issue, so I am very confused.

  • Premiere Pro 2014 playback delay/lag

    I have the latest version of Premiere, running on a RAID with about 2.5 TB worth of space. Mac OS 10.9. 32GB of RAM.
    Seemingly overnight, I have a small hiccup when telling things to play or rewind in the Timeline window. I'll hit spacebar, L or J and it will hold for about a second and then pick up a second forward in the timeline. Same with pausing. It will hold for a second before finally pausing playback. The actual playback of the videos is clean, there's no lag or glitchingas the playhead moves through the middle of a clip. It's only when STARTING or STOPPING.
    I've emptied my cache several times, checked my RAM, restarted the computer. Tried in multiple projects with everything from ARRI ProRes to 5D H.264s.
    I thought for a second it was my wireless keyboard but I've been using it for a couple weeks now and haven't experienced issues in other programs. And the issue still occurs when I hit the play button in the Source of Program panels.
    What could the problem be? Thanks for any and all help.

    I checked to see if this slow start happened in older versions of Premiere Pro CC. It doesn't, only the 2014 release.

  • Adobe Premiere CC 2014 crashing and can't open project in Premiere CC

    Till now I had been working with Premiere CC with no problems. I decided to try out Premiere CC 2014 with a new project, and I regret I did.
    I start working ok, but after about an hour of editing, it freezes on playback. And its a much smaller project then the ones I've worked on CC. No color correction and very few effects yet. Its frustrating. I have to force quit premiere and start over again, for a little more time before it freezes again.
    I tried to open the project in premiere CC and was surprised that I can't. I can't even save the project it appears from Premiere Pro CC 2014 to Premiere CC, just one version down??
    If anyone know a way to do this please let me know. Premiere Pro CC 2014 is not ready yet.
    I have a MacPro 5,1 running on 32 GB RAM, with an USB 3 raid drive. It worked seemlessly and pretty fast with Premiere Pro CC, while Premiere Pro CC 2014 gets clogged.
    Many thanks

    Hi, Arjun,
    My OSX version is 10.9.2 and I'm using only a Red Giant plug in in two short clips, and a RED Giant transition. I have the newest Red Giant Plug in Versions (for the Premiere Pro 2014 update), they worked fine in Premiere pro CC.
    Is there a way to take the Premiere Pro CC 2014 project to Premiere Pro CC?
    Many thanks.

  • Playback and rendered video jumps up and down regularly and minutely

    A number of the sequences I've edited have a minute but noticible up-and-down movement.  For example, see  You'll notice that only the video image moves up and down, not any of the still images or the StudioCrasher watermark.  I initially thought it was the source video I'd imported, but on a more recent project I've noticed that it also does it with footage from a secondary video camera. 
    I also note that this doesn't happen on the original source video in Premiere, just in the edit playback and in the exported video.  So, it has to be something in Premiere. 
    I've tried everything, including searching endless discussion boards, but I can't come up with a solution or a work-around. 
    Any ideas? 

    Thanks John -- okay, here's my answers:
    What version of Premiere Pro? Include the minor version number (e.g., Premiere Pro CS5.5 with the 5.5.2 update).
    Premiere Pro CS5.5 with the 5.5.2 update
    Have you installed the recent updates? (If not, you should. They fix a lot of problems.)
    Software up-to-date.
    What operating system? This should include specific minor version numbers, like "Mac OSX v10.6.8"---not just "Mac".
    Mac OSX v10.7.5
    What kind(s) of source footage? When telling about your source footage, tell us about the codecs, not just the container types. For example, "H.264 in a .mov container", not just "QuickTime".
    Canon Legria HFG10
    Type: MPEG Movie
    File Size: 1.9 GB
    Image Size: 1920 x 1080
    Frame Rate: 25.00
    Source Audio Format: 48000 Hz - compressed - Stereo
    Project Audio Format: 48000 Hz - 32 bit floating point - Stereo
    Average Data Rate: 2.9 MB / second
    Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1.0
    If you are getting error message(s), what is the full text of the error message(s)?
    What were you doing when the problem occurred?
    Has this ever worked before?
    What other software are you running?
    It occurs regardless of what else is running or not. 
    Do you have any third-party effects or codecs installed?
    Tell us about your computer hardware. Be especially certain to tell us about third-party I/O hardware (e.g., AJA, Matrox, Blackmagic, MOTU).
    Processor  2.7 GHz Intel Core i5
    Memory  12 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
    Graphics  AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB
    Are you using Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration?
    Not that I'm aware of. 
    Does the problem only happen with your final output, with previews, or both?
    Preview window and final output.  Not in source window. 
    Screenshots and sample movies are often very useful in showing exactly what you're seeing, and can thus make getting an answer faster and easier.

  • FCPX constantly backing up and rendering issues.

    FCPX makes an automatic backup of almost every single change I make. It's really slowing me down. Every clip I select and drop into the timeline is backed up and I have to wait for it to process or the program grinds to a halt. It's essentially backing up every few seconds as i work.
    Also noticed that when i open a current project it re-renders the whole thing. And often sections of a project I'm in the middle of working on just suddenly start rendering again. I might make a change to a clip near the end and suddenly the first 30 clips start re-rendering.
    Another rendering issue is when I have made a change to a part of a multicam clip, say a colour correction or added an effect etc. It won't render the change until I adjust the clip length and return it to normal. As in, stretch the clip out by +2 seconds then pull it back in -2 seconds, then the render will begin.
    These problems are costing me a lot of time and money and would love to hear if anyone else has experienced similar and has solutions.
    FCPX 10.2  /  OSX Yosemite 10.10.3  /  iMac 27-Inch Late 2012, 3.4GHz, 32GB Ram, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2048MB, Fusion 3TB

    Suggest that you download TimeTracker to reveal exactly what is being backed up on each pass.
    The application is not fancy, and it will probably take 5-10 minutes to load depending on how much data you have on the Time Capsule.
    Once you identify the file that is causing the bloat, you can elect to exclude that file from backups if it is not needed, using Time Machine Options.
    It might be a backup history for your browser or something similar if you do not clear the history on a regular basis.
    Please post with your results to share with other users who may be experiencing a similar issue.


    So Im finally back on track and working well except for the sequence thumbnail regeneration issue.
    Once I started rendering in Software vs OPENCL including projects already rendered in OPENCL I was able to EXPORT again,
    Render without issues and a heck of allot less crashing.
    I also had to go back to Pluraleyes 3.0 vs 3.5 because it was so unreliable.

    Please go to following location move the Adobe folder to desktop,
    User Library >> Application support>>
    User Library>> Preferences>>
    Make sure you're in user library not in system Library.
    Access hidden user library files | Mac OS 10.7 and later
    Please rename the Adobe folder in documents to old.adobe
    Now try and launch.
    Hope that helps.

  • Nvidia GTX 980 Slow Playback and Rendering on 36 Core Dual Xeon

    I have a Dual Xeon e5 2699 v3 machine (18 cores per CPU; 36 physical; 72 Logical).  I am processing Red Dragon footage at 6K resolution and 60 Frames per Second.  I have a Red Rocket-X card as well as Four (4) GTX-980 Nvidia GPUs.  When I try to use the Mercury Playback engine the performance is pitiful.  When I select CPU/Software only I get over 120 fps.  The Adobe CC software ONLY uses One of the Two CPUs installed on the system at any one time, it is like it doesn't see the other CPU even though Windows acknowledges that both are there and working (Cinema 4D and Cinebench use all 72 logical cores and will max them all out).  However, even with the Adobe CC Software only seeing 1 of 2 CPUs, the CPU playback is still way faster than the Mercury Playback/CUDA version.  This makes no sense to me sense the GTX-980s are the fastest/newest cards from Nvidia.  I have read that Premiere CC will only use one GPU for playback but will use multiple cards for renders.  HOWEVER, when rendering GPU-z says that each of my cards is working at less than 25% of capacity.  The rest of the system is NOT the bottle neck, I have 256Gb of DDR4 RAM, along with 12-1Tb SSDs attached to a 12 Channel 12Gb/s e-SATA card with 8Gb of RAM on the card.  I am getting sustained transfers on the RAID of over 2 Gigabytes per second.
    I have invested a lot in this machine in an effort to save rendering time.... Adobe's recommendation for multiple CPUs and Multiple Graphics cards don't seem to matter as my render times are no faster than they were using FCP-X on a 2010 12 core MacPro Tower.
    I hope it is just a driver or programming issue that relates to the 2699's and the GTX980 being so new???
    Any Help would be appreciated,

    Thank you for making the time.  I followed your instructions, great little piece of software.  Here is a screen shot when I ran my test...
    As you can see even on your test, only 1 CPU is being used by Premiere.  The results from the benchmark were uploaded under the computer name RedShredder (I use it to edit and render Red Dragon 6k footage).
    The results from you output file are as follows:  "32","44","8","206",Premiere Version:,
    I couldn't register at the site but will try again later.
    My concern is that no matter what I do Premiere and the entire Creative Cloud ONLY see ONE CPU on my Dual Xeon system.  Sometimes it will run on the other one and you can force it to by changing the processor affinity selection but no matter what, even if you click all cores on both CPUs it will still pick one and just run on that processor.
    Any help would be appreciated,
