Playhead in timeline won't move (Premiere Pro CC 12.0.0)

It seems that after 10 minutes into editing something, the playhead in the timeline would stop moving, along with the sliders in the color correction panel. The only thing moving is the playhead in the preview panel. However, when I use my mouse to the drag the playhead in the timeline, it would still scrub through the timeline, it's just that the actual timeline playhead and the vertical line does not move. The same thing happens to the color correction panel. The sliders would not move, but it still adjusts the colors. I have to exit the program and restart it in order for the problem to go away (not for long). This problem is really slowing down my workflow.

Sir, i think you fixed my problem! Funny thing is that I've always converted with Handbrake.. it's just all I needed to do was adjust the placebo, encoder rate and quality. Thank you so much, you are the Software Salvation!

This could be a number of things or even concatenations. So ... let's start with some basics.

Hardware: OS/CPU/RAM/GPU/vRAM, the number and type of drives on that computer and how used for the program, media, and cache files.

In program: media used (codec-format/rate/size), and what created it; the sequence settings for frame-size/rate; what effects you're using; and if any third party programs or plug-ins have been involved.

Next ... have you tried deleting the cache/cache media files ... oh, is this only on one project, or if you create a new project, does it do this also?

I'm running Windows 10, Ryzen 1700, 16Gb DDR4, GTX 1070 with 8Gb DDR5 VRAM. I have one ssd for program and cache and one hdd for media files. My video clips are MOV files shot on a Nikon D5100, 23.98 fps, H2.64.

4k or 1920x1080?

I note that it's not a bad machine, though not overly equipped with RAM. Hope that second HDD is internal ... hard drives on external aren't particularly speedy.

So, with H.264, you might consider using the included Cineform proxy preset. For new clips importing, use the create-proxy on ingestion route, but for a current project right-click a group of clips in a bin, select "Proxy/create proxies" and again use the included Cineform ones, pick one a bit smaller in frame-size than your media. Do NOT use the H.264 proxy preset ... no clue what that's even included. You want an intraframe codec like Cineform, DNxHD/R or ProRes for proxies as it's far easier on the CPU than in interframe H.264 or mov codecs.

Then go to the + on the far right of the Program monitor controls, and drag the Toggle Proxy icon from the 'available' ones to the controls. Click it to blue, PrPro uses the proxies. Click to gray, you're back to original media.

It seems the problem has nothing to do with the codec or the proxies. The CPU and RAM usage are on the low side and the playback is very smooth. It's just that the playhead in the timeline would not move when I drag it, but it would still scrub through the timeline.

Interesting. Seems totally then a GUI glitch. There's been some threads on trouble with scrubbingwith the CTI, I wonder if a forum search for scrubbing and CTI troubles would pull up something useful.

i'm having the exact same problem, except my problem begins whenever I export footage I record with my screen recorder into my project and re-opening the program doesn't help either. Are your snip tools, ext. to the left of your timeline missing as well? It's just a grey space. A solution to this problem would be great, I feel like i'm now paying monthly for a program that doesn't even work!

Which specific number-dot-number version of PrPro are you using?

Your screen recorder is almost certainly exporting VFR ... variable frame rate media, and that version of PrPro could choke on it, or play it ... but disconnected video from audio. I would recommend running your screen-captures through Handbrake to convert to CFR, then import that media into PrPro and see if that fixes your problem.

In Handbrake, make sure the size of the image is the same as your original in the far left "Picture" tab, in the Video tab, a level of at least 4.2 and near placebo, with CFR little circle checked AND a specific number entered in the frame-rate box.

Happy to help. When I first tried Handbrake, it took 4k media from my Samsung S7 at around 48Mbps, to 1080 at about 15Mbps. To say I was not amused would be a charming understatement. Ahem.

After I created a preset that 1) preserved original frame-size and 2) kept the compression DOWN (hey, it's already being recompressed, why mangle more than absolutely necessary?) I got files that actually were useful.

I'm having the same problem. but I'm not doing any sort of screen recording. This just started happening to me on CC v13.5, and I thought updating to v14 (2020) would solve it and it did not. When I open premiere it runs fine, as long as I don't go to my project panel and try and pull new media into the timeline, which causes the playhead to freeze and not move, even though my project monitor shows that the footage is scrubbing.. when I click on clips, they do not appear to be selected, and I can't use any drop down menus in my effect controls panel. Please any other work arounds that don't involve screen captures?

Solved my own problem, here's the fix. Thanks to this dude for finding out how to fix it. 

The problem comes from a buggy bin, so first you have to figure out which bin is causing this issue, then click the hamburger menu for that bin and close it, the project should work normally, then just reopen that bin and the problem appears to be fixed. Thanks HumerousGorgon.

Just to add, had this problem in PPCC2018 too. Just coming out of the bin in the project panel worked for me. I can replicate the problem by opening the bin again. 

 

Been using Premiere for work for the last 6/7 years and never run into this problem. Cheers!
