This is becoming incredibly frustrating. Whenever I play a clip or a sequence, it pauses after a second or two. It is not dropping frames. It is literally stopping playback and you must hit play again to get it to go (then it stops again after 1 or 2 seconds). I have tried resetting preferences, clearing the cache, using older versions of GPU drivers, clearing out more space in the hard drive, disabling audio hardware, and increasing the memory used by the program. Just keeps doing the same thing. I have an NVidia Quadro P2000 graphics card, the software is on an SSD. A couple of weeks ago everything was working fine. This happens no matter what clip is in the timeline or source monitor. Has nothing to do with effects applied or anything like that.
Unfortunately I am a teacher in a school and don't have that type of access on my machine. It also doesn't explain why this is happening. Would love other suggestions. I have seen other similar threads and none of them have a solution. Many have suggested it is an audio hardware issue. Doesn't seem to be the case for me.
Still looking for help on this. I have been trying everything and can't get it to work. Playback pauses in both source and program monitors. Have to keep pressing play over and over to get through anything. Makes editing and teaching my students how to edit nearly impossible. I have been using Adobe PP for 8 years and have been a loyal Adobe customer and I was the one who initially pushed my school district to adopt Premiere Pro over Final Cut. A little help would be appreciated. I honestly don't have time to sit on a call with tech support so I am hoping this forum will provide the answer.
