Built a brand new PC no other programs except Adobe creative cloud.
AMD Ryzen 3900X
64 GB RAM
8 GB GPU - RTX 3060Ti
2 M.2 SSD - one for OS and programs - 2nd Media cache
4 TB external SSD - Source files
Enabled all settings as to optimise performance.
However noticed, during editing when on playback system freezes, video plays ( 1/2 res)
CPU hits 100%
Renderer to Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration CUDA.
Whats is happening.
Thanks in advance
Some video codecs will bring a 12 core CPU to it's knees.
So this is what I did after multiple Youtube videos and troubleshooting guides, none worked.
I am not a pro, I did the following whetther it had impact or not - it worked. CPU does nt even hit 50% 🙂
1. Removed MSI softwares - the addons which comes in utilities
2. Deleted cache
3. Updated GPU driver - uninstall and fresh reinstall
4. Under preferences - Media - unticked "Automatically refresh growing files"
5. Reconnected the external drives and devices
I have almost an identical build except a lower GPU and I get the same issue. H.264 footage in 4k. The weird thing is my computer will be fine for 1-2 hours and then when it slows down like this, it happens constantly.
