Please help me, my premiere pro was doing just fine. Suddenly I can't click/drag/move anything in the timeline/work bar, I can't alt + drag to copy, I can't do anything. It's like lagging but it's not. But I can still play the video just fine.
my essential graphics bar can't open too I need help please
There is an issue with nested audio: delete or disable Show Audio Waveform.
I got this problem too. Even I restarted the program it is not solve anything. But after I deleted the video one by one it back to work! Maybe one of the videos that you imported is the problem.
Ok. It comeback to have a problem again with another video. My comment is not the solution. I want a solution too...
start by telling us your system specs: OS version, Premiere version, amount of RAM, Hardware specs including graphics card and your source properties and sequence settings
Was this an earlier project you updated? Does the same thing happen in a new project? Let us know.
I got a similar problem too. It randomly startet yesterday. After about 10 seconds of editing in the Timeline, my Timeline window was frozen. I just couldnt click anything. All the other Premiere window where working all fine.
My quick workaround (been in a hurry) was just to select another window (so you see the blue frame around it), for example the Playback Window with a click on it, and then select the Timeline window again. But the fix only lasts 10-20 seconds. Then you have to reselect another window. As the video was nearly done, it worked for me doing this.
Today it reoccured. I found this thread and tryed disabling "Show Audio Waveform." Didnt work for me...
But i found out the Problem doesnt occure when editing on a single monitor, instead of having premiere running on two monitors. Indeed unsatisfying when you could have more space, but thats the only workaround i found so far.
So apparently after reseting my workspace to a default workspace layout from premiere pro (effects in my case) and then switching back to my dual monitor custom workspace, it works again 🙂
Thanks for posting your solution. Not enough people do that...
