Bug Report: Speed Issues in Premiere 2020
Any speed change that brings a clip over 100% speed results in choppy playback.
Teresa Intelisano commented
This is unacceptable.
Also, freezing a frame in any clip that has had its speed modified will now give completely unpredictable results..
Generally speaking, you'll just have to close your eyes and pray for the best with every speed change.
Time remapping is stil unreliable after all these years, especially when used it coupled with smooth motion options.
Mostly unusable anyway, since footage skips all over the place in previews.
On one of my recent projects the contents of a 30mins long untouched h264 clip will slide all over the place for absolutlely no reason (i was trying to sync a light switching on with the music; it would be fine in preview, then it would be several seconds late in the export, then every subsequent playback in timeline would have that moment happen at different times, every time).
HEVC support is a mess, with video looping after the first 10 or so seconds forcing me to convert to other formats before editing.
With slightly more articulated projects clips temporarily disappear while dragging them around.
Premiere has become a joke. It's unbelievable the state of this thing in 2020.
Daniel Rytikov commented
I updated it and it quit being choppy
Andy Urtusuastegui commented
Still present in 14.0.1
Abhay Saxena commented
same thing.. happened to me ...as i start using time remaping in any footage
Marc Schneider commented
bug still present, even with projects startet in 2020 and not converted from older versions. prerendering all effects and clips does not help. neither does the use of proxies.
Massimo Previti commented
the new update 14.0.1 still not fix the bug.
Chris Wasey commented
Still having this problem - across 3 projects. Speed changes over 100% cause terrible playback. You can view if you manually scrub with the mouse, but otherwise it freezes up.
These are all projects that have moved over from 2019.
Ahas anyone encountered this problem with projects started natively in 2020?
Lee Fritz commented
Switching to software only (from Metal and/or OpenCL) does seem to fix it ... but I imagine that means I'm not actually using the best the machine has to offer. Not great. All the other apps in cc have had bug fix updates by now ... time for some premiere improvements.
Aaron Johnson commented
Don't understand why we're 2 months into this and no fix....????????????????
Akshita Talwar commented
There is lots of bug in Premiere Pro 14.0.0.
There is a Bug that change the colour of my footage or it show the Black frame or Green frame and, It change the settings automatic and some more other types of bugs please help us on this
Christopher Cho commented
I'm having the same issue as well. Seems like if you change it to "Software Only" it works, but doesn't work with CUDA
Vincent Chen commented
Why man is this 2020 update so bad. Got a new machine specifically for 4k video editing.
I've been trying to change 2 pieces of text for 2 days now. The panels appear black. The legacy title creator has functions that has disappeared randomly. Like I cant change the color of my text! Its not like they removed it. Its just glitchy. Auto save doesn't work the same and so when it crashes I lose everything. I'm staring at my project and I can't click on my timeline.
2019 update broke everything too. I want to go back to 2018!!!!
Yudi Takatsu commented
Same thing happening to me, I'm downgrading to PP2019, don't have the time to search 100 topics and find the solution, =(

Andres Arosemena commented
I have the exact same problem!! this is hosrrible
Kevin Monahan commented
Lee, is this with 60 fps iPhone HEVC footage?
Kevin Monahan commented
Lee, I heard one user workaround this issue by changing the codec for rendered previews. You need to get into Sequence Settings > Editing Mode > Custom and then move to the section for Video Previews > Video File Format: I like to use QuickTime > ProRes LT. Try it and let us know if that worked.
Marion Hill commented
I am also having very slow playback and processing for basic 1920.1080 MOV files on a brand new windows gaming computer. Any ideas what this could be?
Pruth Shankarappa commented
Can you tell us more about the clip? such as: codec, frame rate and frame size and the camera/source of the media. Is this on Windows or Mac?
Ricardo Farias commented
I had no problem on the previews versions. The same project, but 2020 version.
You upgrade and things get worst.
Why this now?
