I took some 4k video at 60 fps with my DJI Mavic Air 2 and imported it into Premiere Pro. It looks super smooth in the playback feature in premiere pro but when I export it the exported video is super choppy. It plays at less then 1 frame per second in the exported video. I have changed the sequence to match the frame rate of the source video and it shows the same frame rate in the export settings. I have a Ryzen 7 3700x and a RTX 3070 that is being used because I see utilization of the GPU spike when I render the video. What could be the cause of my super choppy video?
Try exporting a HD version and see if you have the same trouble.
I used the settings below to export it in 4k and the result was still a choppy video.
Just curious if you had any luck, I have exactly the same problem with video from my DJI Mavic 2 pro with Choppy video export.
Same issue here too, the problem is for sure Premiere Pro 😕
Hi camf87154326, Silkr0ad!
We can get this checked. Can you provide some files to test and also share your export settings?
Let us know.
Thanks for the offer to look at it, I got it fixed! I moved my source files to an SSD and then exported to an SSD. No problems since! It looks like it was slow disks!
Turn off Hardware encoding and try again.
Thanks for the tips! I moved my source files to an SSD and then exported to an SSD. No problems since! It looks like it was slow disks!
Is the timeline video 8 bit and the render video 10 bit?
Hi Don't waste your time with any of the solutions you read to this problem on any of the message boards including this one. I get all the choppy playback upon export of my DJI Air 2S footage from Premiere Pro as described here and elsewhere and I have super fast SSD drives and no frame mismatches. I draged the footage on the sequence and let PP set it up. I supect it has to do with H.264 and H.265 being crappy codecs more "sumer" than'pro". When I export my 4K same as source or any other codec of my DJI Air 2S footage it plays like crap on my brand new Mac Studio however when I bring the sequence back into Premiere Pro it plays beautifully. Maybe Quicktime player needs and over haul. When I take that same sequence exported with the Vimeo 4K quicktime preset into Vimeo it plays it more or less OK. Here's a fun fact. If import the same sequence that played choppily in Quicktime on my desktop back into PP it plays fine. If I had to guess it is an H.264 problem and I am not going to waste my time with alchemy trying to get out a decent looking video. DJI, Adobe and Apple get together and fix this so as not to drive your customers crazy. Much love to all. This isnot your fault your tech overlords need to fix this. Maybe immediately transcode your video to pro res for editing who knows just please fix it. Who knows I am tired of trying to fix this.
