Hi there, I'm experiencing a devastating issue on Premiere. It randomly freezes to the point that neither the mouse nor the keyboard nor the physical switches on the pc respond to inputs and I have to unplug the power and reboot. This occurs 70% while editing (mainly moving items on the timeline) and 30% while exporting.
It started for apparently no reason, I didn't change anything. It can happen from 0 to 10 times in a hour, I don't know what it depends on. These freezes come with no warning, it's just sudden.
I also have to make backup copies of my project because this thing is corrupting files and stuff (I also lost fonts I use on my projects installed on the computer since it started).
Thanks for your advices! I work with mainly 1080p material taken from games via Nvidia Shadowplay or apps via Xbox screen capturing feature (Win+G). I'll try those tools asap. To be honest I didn't suffer any performance issues with Premiere until happened, so I'm incline to look somewhere else for a solution. Do you think that my files could cause issues if they come preminently from screen capturing?
yes, one issue with variable frame rate material is it's impossible to predict how premiere will handle it. sometimes there won't be any issues, sometimes the weirdest manifestations. so use media info to see if it's variable or constant frame rate. If you have any questions about using media info or where to find this info, post back. It's not the most intuitive program, but it is free.
