Good Evening,

The below link is one of the sources that I've used to try and solve this issue.

My PC Hardware:

CPU: i7-6700k 
GPU: GTX 1070 

RAM: 32 GB DDR3

I use an SSD for my apps and a hard drive for my storage.

When I go to edit my footage, and this is any footage on my PC, (1080p, 4k, 720p) it's all choppy. I check the frame rate drop and it looks like I'm dropping frame rates no matter what I do to try and fix the issue. I need some assistance in this area as I've ran out of ideas to try and fix the issue.

You may need to use an internal SSD for your footage.

 

Have you tried proxies?

If you read my original post, I use proxies and my harddrive is fast enough to handle read times while editing. I also tested this by moving the clip to my SSD and the issue still existed.

30.5 fps is a weird frame rate.  Makes me suspect that you may have a variable frame rate which can cause issues in Premiere.  Is this from a screen capture or smartphone?  Here's the adobe party line on screen captures

https://community.adobe.com/t5/premiere-pro/faq-issues-with-screen-recorded-footage-in-premiere-pro/...

and here's how to deal with it

use mediainfo to determine whether your source is variable or constant frame rate

https://mediaarea.net/en/MediaInfo/Download
if it's variable use handbrake to convert to constant frame rate

and here's a tutorial on how to use handbrake

and happy to explain the why and wherefor of standard frame rates if you like.  23.976, 24fps, 25 fps, 29.97 fps and 30 fps.   anything else is non standard...  and may cause issues.

Figured out the issue. Apparently, I had my Audio Hardware set to my sound card for input. I have no idea how this plays into the playback of the footage but it's reproducible. If I set it, my footage is choppy, and if it's set to No Input, I'm good to go. Thanks for the help!
