BUG: UI issues with audio waveforms displayed
I have been having several issues with a multi-camera source timeline the past couple of days, and I have finally discovered the source of pretty much all the issues.
It's a performance bug in Premiere that cannot handle displaying many audio waveforms at once. Once I turn the audio waveform display off, the performance is very good. Still a little flickery, which has always been the case with CC, and which is something Adobe seems to have decided not important enough to ever address, but that's for another day.
Things that are fixed by turning waveforms off:
- Dragging a clip works as expected. With waveforms displayed, you cannot see the clip as you are dragging it.
- Dragging a selection rectangle is smooth
- Scrubbing the playhead is smooth
- The playhead no longer flickers when paused
Here's a video demonstration:
Adobe, please fix.

This is totally unacceptable and I consider this to be a system breaker. My editing 'flow' is being interrupted every few minutes with this bug. Adobe you need to justify your subscription fees. This has crept through a big CC update without being fixed.

I've had the same issue for the past two days and it's been driving me insane. Software should just work at this point, it's insane that the basic display performance isn't any better. The waveform code is stuck in 1996. Steal auditions waveform drawing code already!
