No matter what project I have running, wether it be 720p, to 6K. When I press play, it plays between 10 to 60 frames then pauses. And it’s Not stuttering but outright stopping playback. Making it effectivly impossible to work.
Versions tried: Premiere pro, CC19, 20, and 21.
OS: Win 10
GFX card: Radeon RX 580 8gb
CPU: Ryzen 2600
Ram: 16gb DDR4
Media: any. Non VFR media shot on GH5 between 1080p to 6K. 8bit to 10 bit.
I’ve rendered the sequence, reinstalled Adobe and have done a clean install of windows 10. Removed plugins, added them back. Enabled and disabled GPU acceleration and Ensured Premiere pro is the only application other than the OS running.
I may just be missing a hyper simple solution but I’m just lost. Any suggestions?
Might want to consider using proxies instead of highly compressed footage.
Proxies are already enabled, rendered and linked.
What kind of proxies are you using?
Iirc, I'm using ProRes 1024X540 proxies using Premiere Pros built in ingest settings
I'm wondering if your shortcut could have been changed? Have you tried starting playback with the mouse on the monitor button or the "L" key, something other than the spacebar. Could 'play around' be enabled, play in to out, etc... Did you try with a brand new project, drop a clip in, one that's never been dropped in before would be good, does that play?
After more troubleshooting and searching through the forum for solutions I came across this thread.
basically the solution is to unplug all USB devices, then plug them in one at a time and see what individual device is causing premiere to force pause.
Mine was a usb light I had plugged in for a desk light. After plugging it back in it worked.
