PREMIERE PRO IS UNUSABLE - Trim Tool Flickers/Flashes + Choppy playback
FOURTH TIME POSTING THIS. IT'S BEEN 3 MONTHS. PLEASE, AT LEAST GIVE A RESPONSE.
The community Board I started for this issue 3 months ago has many other people suffering this same problem!
And no the solution is NOT to downgrade to an earlier version. I have already started project files in v15 that I will not be able to access in v14 of premiere.
I've been having a huge issue ever since updating to Premiere 2021.
On my timeline when I extend a video clip by dragging the ends with the selection tool, the preview screen flashes on every frame. It looks like it is flashing back and forth between where the playhead is and the frames I am extending.
Here is a screen recording of that happening:
This also makes my CPU run really hot and then the program lags completely. Making me wait a minute or 2 before I can even touch thge program again.
Every time I make any change or adjustment to any clip, text or basically anything on the timeline, the preview screen changes between aspect ratios, and low-res previews and then pops back to normal.
This happens Every time I even touch anything on the timeline.
This isn't an isolated glitch, either. It happens in every project I've started and opened.
I reset Premiere and trashed the preferences already. I have run out of options.
Any help will be greatly appreciated as I can't even edit without near getting a seizure from the preview monitor flashing.
