I normally go through my edits on 2x speed using the fast key L. Lately I have been unable to do this as every time I speed the timeline up the image begins to stutter and when I hit space bar to pause the audio will continue to plat for 10-45 seconds. I am doing multicamera (2) footage but I have the res turned all the way to 1/8 and I have never had an issue in the past.
This is NOT a hardware issue, I am using a 2021 Macbook pro with 64 gigs of ram, the M1 Max chip and 4 tb of SSD storage that is nowhere close to full.
Error or problem
Freeze or hang
If that doesn't work, try resetting the Workspaces: Reset a workspace Reset the current workspace to return to its original, saved layout of panels. 1. Do one of the following: • Click the Workspace menu icon and select Reset to Saved Layout. • Choose Window > Workspace > Reset to Saved Layout. from here: https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/using/workspaces.html
If that doesn't work, try Preferences > Audio Hardware and set Input to None.
If that doesn't work, try creating a new project and import the old one into it.
