  1. Better Threadripper Support

    I have 2 PCs, 1 with an I7 6900x and 1 with the Threadripper 1950x and opening the same project , the Threadripper struggles in playback. Cant play 1080 footage (without effects) without dropping frames. CPU utilization is 30% max and GPU is 5% max. Both machines have a GTX 1080 ti

    • Fix playback choppiness

      The playback functionality is terrible now after upgrading to Premiere Pro CC 2019 - My computer is a brand new iMac Pro with more than enough processing power. The problem started recently. I can't play normal video (without effects) without interruption. The only workaround (which is not an option) is to render everything before even trying to watch it. Full work stoppage.

      • Latest Release 13.0.1 Playback has major delay when hitting space bar

        When I try to play my timeline it takes over 5 seconds sometimes to begin playing. Afterward, playback is choppy and delayed. I'm in a project that was playing back without problems or delays in CC18. How can this happen? Unacceptable.

        • Program Monitor Black after update

          My program monitor is black with a white line at the bottom after the most recent update today. This was the case in all my timelines and after a computer restart. The way I fixed it was to turn off Safe Margins. Turning safe margins back on recreates the problem.

            • Playback becomes laggy while scrubbing with just lumetri

              So what I noticed was, there is a major bug in PP CC (Latest) when doing major colour grading and scrubbing through your footage and trying various looks on 1 clip.

              What happened was, the footage began to get very laggy and choppy, I said whats going on? Had a look at GPU usage, it was at 99%. When I didn't scrub or anything, it still was stuck at 99%. What gives?!?!

              So what I did was, I scrolled to the end of the timeline where theres no media, and saw the dip in GPU usage back to 1-4% usage.…

              • uninterrupted playback

                Uninterrupted playback,
                playing video or audio in the timeline, have the option of letting you jump to different spot in the timeline, while keeping it playing.

                • Green/Glitchy H.264 videos with Premiere 13.0.1 & NVIDIA GTX 1050

                  Video exported as H.264 (from both Media Encoder and Premiere) imports as green, glitchy footage with other strange artifacts and does not play back correctly in Premiere. The video looks fine when viewed in Windows Media Player and other common video software. Video was exported using several different H.264 presets in Premiere and Media Encoder. I was finally able to get the video to import/playback correctly in Premiere by exporting my footage as a AVI video, re-importing into my project. Did not experience this issue with previous versions of Premiere.

                  • Proxies with Merged Clips?

                    Hi,

                    Do you have any plan to add proxy functionality for merge clips? What seems strange is that I can create proxies from merged clips, which link to the original source clips, but then when I turn on proxies, the merged clips still play back full res. This would be so, so useful for those of us who want to use both merged clips and proxies. Thank you for your consideration.

                    • Problems with playback of file from Blackmagic Duplicator 4K

                      We have stage shows recorded using the Blackmagic Duplicator 4K unit and I edit in Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2019 (13.0.2). The files recorded by the Blackmagic Duplicator are H.264 1080 with a data rate of 7.09 Mbit/s.

                      Playback in PP 2019 is glitchy (see screen shot). The file plays back with no problems in QuickTime. I did not have this problem until I upgraded to PP 2019. When I open the exact same files in PP 2018 (still installed on the same system), I have no problem.

                      When I open files recorded a year ago on the same Blackmagic…

                      • Adobe 2019 can't process footage like 2018

                        I can edit through Canon Raw Light like butter on Adobe 2018 on either my iMac Pro or MacBook Pro. When I downloaded 2019, Raw light is UNUSABLE...as in it can't play back even for a couple seconds. Its choppy and horrible and is definitely a bug since 2018 can process the exact same files smoothly with zero lag. Please fix this...I'd imagine other users with raw footage may be experiencing the same thing. My friend downloaded on his computer as well and same thing...2019 needs some work.

                        • x1/2 Playback Speed

                          I am editing footage to a song, and I want to align some videos to certain beats and notes, but in order to be precise I need to watch the project play at 1/2 and 1/4 speed. I know you can manually do this with J, but I wish I could be able to press the space bar and already have the video play at said speed, instead of needing to press J every time.

                          • BUG. Premiere pro showing proxies upside down

                            See https://forums.adobe.com/message/10770519#10770519

                            Very annoying but. In the latest PP version proxies are showing upside down, but they show the right way in every media player and even when imported as media the proxy show the right way in PP as well.

                            • Premiere Pro - FIX - Playback LAG when fully rendered…..

                              Premiere Pro - Playback LAG when fully rendered on MacBook Pro Mojave…..

                              - After fully rendering an adobe premiere pro timeline, the playback is lagging (jumping) preventing me from watching my edit back.
                              - Open premiere pro - add clips (4k 60 frames for closest replica) , render and try and play back
                              - After fully rendering I am typically able to watch my video timeline play back with zero latency.
                              - The lag that occurs prevents me from critiquing my work.

                              This needs immediate attention

                              • Metal playback video is black.

                                I have some videos from dji phantom 4 pro and osmo. They playback fine (besides some lag) but when put the videos in timeline and playback the timeline, video is black. Playback render is Metal. When I switch to OpenCL it plays normal. This came to happen this year, as last year I was working using Metal. My MacOS is updated as all the adobe apps.

                                • Add a "Toggle Renders" button

                                  Sometimes you want to check your original footage.

                                  You can turn proxies on and off, but not renders.

                                  (I'd love to be wrong about this.)

                                  Also stop using weird phrases instead of standard entertainment industry terms, ie "Video Previews" vs "Renders" :)

                                  • Hide Arrow Tool During Full Screen Playback

                                    I enjoy being able to hit a key and pop in and out of full-screen playback, but I hate the fact that my arrow tool/cursor sits on top of the image and I have to manually drag it to my second monitor.

                                    In general, support for two or three monitor setups needs improvement.

                                    • Mercury Transmit Hotkey

                                      I would love to be able to map a keyboard shortcut to enable/disable mercury transmit. Often time when I have clients in the room, they can't help themselves on commenting when I'm still putting things together. I find myself needing to shut off my client monitor while I try things before presenting the change to them. I've mapped a button to open the playback preferences, but for efficiency I'd love to be able to toggle playback on my client monitor with a press of one button.

                                      • glitch (or like audio frequency-like) playback in video

                                        When I preview a video, it becomes like a glitch playback. It also did the same thing when I insert the video in the Sequence

                                        • MOV files cannot play efficiently

                                          Hello,
                                          We have video files from hidden cameras that Première cannot play efficiently. The software fails to play the files smoothly when continuously moving the playback head with the mouse. It also takes several seconds to load the preview image when moving the playback head at a given time.

                                          Here are the characteristics of one problematic file attached.

                                          And as the software behaves :
                                          https://vimeo.com/304490880/76e4000367

                                          Thank you very much.

                                          All the best.
