Hi, I've had this problem for the last two days with Adobe CC (fully up to date). When I play my timeline faster than normal speed (hitting "L") I often cannot stop it until it reaches the end of the timeline. The only way I found to get out of this is by putting my computer to sleep and restarting it.This aparently only seems to happen when I'm playing an embedded multicam sequence that I am editing. A simple clip on a timeline seems to play, accelerate and stop correctly.
Video files used : 1920X1080 .MOV files from a CANON 60D DSLR camera.
My system is a HP Z820 Workstation with 16 Gig RAM, a Firepro V7900 graphic card and a Windows 7 Professional (SP1) 64-bit operating system.
Anyone has ever had that problem? Thank you for your help.
This problem has been going on forever, Adobe has known about it for well over a year, and still no solution.
After the latest update, I have created a brand new sequence, and the bug persists. It is thus false advertising for Adobe to even claim that Premiere has any multi-cam functionality, because this massive product bug renders the function completely useless. We all need to change angles while reviewing footage, obviously.
Adobe will either fix this, or will not. After a year, I'm shocked that they've let this go.
Has this issue been resolved yet? This is beyond frustrating.

It's really frustrating, I'm in the middle of a project and the multicam just stop working, first infinite playback, then the monitor started to flash, and finally stop working at all. Is really really annoying that a professional software have this issue.
I need a solution, right now I'm hearing my timeline in infinite playback.
Same problem with CC 2015.0.2 on Windows 10. Seems like this has been a problem for several versions of Premiere Pro now...
That's weird because I haven't run into the problem recently, I think the
update solved it for me.
Just had the problem on a 5-camera sequence in 2015. Weird that a bug like
this has lasted this long, usually Adobe clears bugs within a few months at
Actually it seems to have stopped, so if it does pop up again I'll file one
The bug is back. Consolidating to a one-monitor workspace seems to prevent it, but I'd really like to use all three monitors, especially since the multicam previews are even smaller than the normal program monitor image.
As I tried with no success to have tech support troubleshoot the multicam issue I thought I would pass on what I figured out on my own. I have to say so far in the year of being a CC subscriber Ive had numerous unsatisfactory support conversations. After seeing so many posts with no answers I wouldnt feel right not sharing what I found. After doing a preferences reset the problem seemed to go away until I reset the preferences to my origional settings. When the problem came back I revered everything one at a time and what I found was that once I set the scroll option to no scroll the problem stopped. While I might not have the exact problem as everyone here the fix seems to make sense. I dont know if this is something that can be fixed on Adobe's part but its frustrating. When I have time I will have o try and troubleshoot my other issues as tech support has been no help, Including telling me the reason I could not log onto the forums was because of my ISP provider and as it turns out it was related to my adobe ID. Once i created a new ID , as per info found on a forum, I was easily able to log in. I would thing tech support would at least read their own forums.
Yes, I am also experiencing the multi-monitor multicam issue.
I still have this problem. The only time it rears its ugly head is when the multicam window is active. It doesn't matter if the sequence being played is a multicam sequence or not.
Sometimes it will freeze during 1x playback.
It almost always freezes during 2x playback.
Sometimes it will stop playing at the next edit point.
Sometimes it stops randomly.
I have a GeForce GTX 980 Ti, video on fast SSDs and 48GB of RAM. Not a weak system at all.
This is a very frustrating bug, it's been this way for years and I need to edit at least one multicam video each month.
I have yet to find a post that has solved this issue for good and I have heard of no Adobe plans to fix it.
It seems that the old multicam worked better than the current version that was implemented in CS6.
After hours on phone with clueless tech support I seem to have stumbled onto a fix, at least its worked for me. After having all the preferences reset and everything seemed to be fine, they also went through removing third monitor, I went back and reset all my preferences in the preferences menu.
I usual like smooth scroll and once set my problem with the video not stopping returned. I went and reset to no scroll and its working fine. Dont know if this is the actual cure or just unique to me but thought I would post.
I just opened a multicam timeline that was giving me problems yesterday.
Turned off smooth scroll and it plays back and stops fine. Even with 2x playback.
I think you may have found the solution!
(Only if I would have known this yesterday...)
Is smooth scroll an OS option or a Premiere preference?
Turning off Smooth Scrolling worked for me. I'm answering this all the way in February 2017, running CC 2017.0.2. If I had Smooth Scrolling on, I'd lose control within seconds. Turning audio waveforms off brought me back to 'sluggish' control - Multicam switching happened a second or three after I pressed the button, as did stopping. So betterish, but really still useless.
I can still use Page Scrolling - with audio waveforms on - so the timeline at least keeps up, and things work OK.
Having this problem too. Been having it for a while. Any fixes moving forward, Adobe?
I've got a three monitor setup, and I use two at a time to edit in multicam. I'm using 1080 MVI footage from 3 T5i's, Gopro Footage, and a wma audio file from my Zoom H1 recorder.
This usually only happens once I'm near the end of an edit, and it comes and goes intermittently. I figured it was a RAM problem, (I've got a decent graphics card and processor, but only 12 gbs of RAM) but it seems like people with much nicer PC's than me are having the same issues. Its not debilitating, but definitely annoying enough to start googling around for a solution.
I had been using the default of page scrolling, and upon hearing people's issues with page scrolling I decided to give it a try, and was able to reproduce the problem worse than I had been experiencing before. I've now switched to "No Scrolling" to see if that helps, but obviously that's not ideal either.
If you need more help reproducing this, I'll download/upload anything you want. I use Multicam for almost all of my work, and I'd be much obliged if this problem went away for 2017.
Premiere in preferences. Though I just added a sequence for a lower third title and the problem is back. Will let you know what happens as I have 5 more multicam edits to do.
I've been using Page scroll instead of smooth since... forever and I've
still been having the multicam issue unfortunately.
set it to no scroll, thats what worked for me
I'll try that next time I have a multicam project going, none right this
Setting the scroll option to no scroll has no effect on my system at all. Just started editing a new multicam project, and apparently even in 4K you can't edit multicam unless all tracks are the thinnest they go (Shift+-)
