having an issue where I can't play the timeline. I had a friend suggest it was just the regular lag but it appears to be more complicated than that. I have a video here illustrating the issue: https://streamable.com/typ6ms
any help would be much much much much appreciated as I'm at a critical point in this edit for a client and I'm unable to get anything done.
I've tried dumping the cache, reinstalling, exiting/reopening, and restarting my computer. None of them have helped.
For any future users who are havin this issue here was my workaround:
I deleted the project file entirely and nabbed the premiere autosave file that was created as close to the time the issue arose and started working from that as my project file. Haven't had this issue since then.
