I'm expiriencing quite a lot of stuttering and lag when I play the video I'm editing in Premiere Pro. This only happens in one project that I have created. The playback resolution is set to half(1/2) of 720x576(the Playback Resolution in Sequence Settings)
The playhead is moving but the image in the preview window is either stuck at one frame or it changes to a different frame after a few seconds. The video isn't too long, and it also doesn't have too many effects added. I would like to fix that. I've tried to change the rendering method to Software, but that only helped a bit.
Some of the other fixes I have tried:
1. I changed the Pixel Aspect Ratio to 1.0(didn't help)
2. I also changed the Preview File Format to P2 DVCPRO50 NSTC, this didn't help a lot.
The version of Premiere is CS6 and the computer hardware specifications are:
Intel Xeon E3-1275 v2 3.5Ghz
16GB DDR3 RAM
NVIDIA GTX 560Ti 1GB GDDR5
(I assume that the PC is above the minimum requirements for Premiere CS6)
Error or problem, Freeze or hang, Hardware or GPU, Performance
Sorry for the frustration. If the footage is H.264, then the advice is to transcode the footage in Media Encoder. If that doesn't work, try the same in Handbrake. Return with any questions, please. We'll be here.
