Premiere Pro CC version 22.0: Black Screen and Playback Performace with Cuda GPU

I have seen other threads on this topic, This is still an issue with the current version of permiere. This is not a small problem, this is a huge problem. I have had to scrap projects that I started in premiere and finish them in Davinci Resolve because I was faster than spending hours more troubleshooting.

 

I have been using Premiere since 1998 and kind of like it, but premiere is no longer a reliable tool that I can depend on.

 

I have been dealing with a couple issues with Permiere Pro CC since the 2020 version came out and am currently running version 22.0. Prior to the 2020 upgrade, I did not see these issues. Davinci resolve plays back files just fine on the same pc since 2020.

 

 

Issue 1:

 

Playing a video clip, could be h264, could be pro-res, could be DNxHR, could be 4k, could be 1080p or even less. Monitor window and mercury transmit go black. Audio playback continues to work and the UI functions normally. Must restart Premiere in order to restore playback functionality. 

 

Issue 2:

Playing a video clip, could be h264, could be pro-res, could be DNxHR, could be 4k, could be 1080p or even less. Video playback becomes jerky and sometimes pauses for seconds at a time.

Workaround: Set the project to software rendering, close out of the project settings window, re-open project settings and re-enable cuda.

 

I have tried at least 5 different versions of the Nvidia Game Ready driver including the latest and oldest ones I could find. Unfortunately, my graphics card is not supported by the studio driver.

 

I recently tried to run the Puget Bench Premiere benchmark plugin, but it failed with an error stating that video playback was not working normally.

 

I have completely removed all remnants of creative cloud and reinstalled. I have tried multiple versions of premiere but they all seem to suffer the same issue.

 

I have reset preferences.

 

I have deleted media cache.

 

I have disabled the default audio input device

 

I have installed CC apps on their own dedicated nvme ssd which transfers data at 2800mb per second

 

I have moved my video card to a different pcie slot.

 

I have reinstalled windows(for other reasons) but worth mentioning

 

 

 

My first car was a 30 year old diesel Mercedes with a couple hundred thousand miles on it. Over time, it shed features it did not need. Like power locks, power breaks, and eventually the ability to shut off the engine using the key. But, it never left me stranded because it had only shed features it did not need.

 

Every time I disable and re-enable cuda, or end task premiere and restart… It reminds me of my old car. However, GPU Acceleration does not fall into the category of features Premiere does not need. Software rendering however is a feature premiere does not need. Even Audition uses the GPU and has for years. I am pretty sure a fitbit has a gpu.  Software rendering is only useful for confirming that GPU rendering is broken in Premiere CC!

I have nothing to add here aside from +1-ing this. I am having the exact same issue right now (your issue #1) and I'm not entirely sure what to do. Thank you for posting this. If nothing else, you saved me the hassle of doing some of the more extreme steps myself.

 

I'm currently working with RED Komodo 6k footage and the playback engine just dies after a few minutes as you have described. I've been watching my resources and the PC is barely skipping a beat. Just nothing after a few mins.

 

I have noticed one pattern, however: if I start with my playback res at 1/2 and paused res at Full, and wait for it to crash, I can change paused res to 1/2 and it gives me a few more minutes before 1/2 paused res also crashes. This pattern means nothing to me, but it's the only contribution I have. Hope someone out there can help shed some light on this.

Having same issues. Premiere Pro preview window is sooo disappointing. Tearing, freezing, artifacting. And it's not something unimportant. I can't tell, for example, is it my footage/editing issue or it's just a preview bug. Kinda serious thing, don't you think?
And it fails to show even on a 100% pre-rendered clip! Why? I open it in any video player from Adobe Preview folder and it runs just fine and smooth!

Come on guys, let's do something! It's unacceptable!

I am thinking of stopping my Adobe subscribtion I had for years. Premiere is getting worse and worse after every update. More usless features, less quality in basic things.

So frustrating. I am currently on older 15.1 version for a bit more quality. Ver. 22.0 is even worse. 

And yes, I have NVIDIA Studio driver, relax Uustor, it doesn't help at all! (((

BR, Anton.

I am glad to see others coming forward with the same problems. I am also somewhat relieved that even current gen video cards are having the issue, which saves me going out and buying a new video card to fix it. It also means I wont accept that my hardware is old as the cause.

 I have a 980 GeForce and it plays 4k pro-res and dnxhd in Davinci Resolve without a problem. Even at full resolution.

Davinci resolve is FREE and does a better job than a product Adobe has had over 20 years to perfect.

 

I am giving Adobe 1 more version to fix this or I am done.

To others with this problem, give Davinci Resolve a try. I bet it works fine for you.

HeyThanks for the link. Yea, I expect other guys and Adobe guys as well to join the discussion, since there are a lot of problems with preview window, including vsync bugs I am planning to post about it a bit later.

Cheers, Anton.

Oh vsync, yeah. I just didn't even bring that up -- seconded. Wonder what else I'm ignoring because it "isn't THAT bad" ...
