I am on the newest mac book pro fully spec'd out and having issues playing back Sony a7siii 4k 120fps 4222 10 bit.
When I shoot 420 10 bit that footage plays back fine.
Will there be a fix for this soon or is anyoen else having issues?
Trying to create proxies but dont want to add that to my workflow.
I've just finished a project using the same camera and video specs and the playback was somehow sluggish, I've ended up using proxies to be able to work comfortably. My computer specs are a little bit low: i7-5930, geforce1080 ti, 64 Gb ram, win 10. Another thing: I noticed that PPro doesn't use hardware decoding when playing back those videos (needs support for that codec from Adobe?)
Sorry for the frustration on performance. I have noted that most people having performance issues are running H.264/HEVC 10 bit 4:2:2 variants. For now, I'll recommend using proxies or transcoding the original files. Please let the devs know you'd like this improved over on User Voice.
Can we get an update on this. I'm sick of using proxies.
Some camera media is built for quick encoding in the camera by specialized chips built FOR that camera, and our computers of course can't have 500 specific chips built into them. And those types of media are not computer-friendly for editing/VFX purposes. So the use of those media types in a computer has always been frustrating. That's not a fault of any of the video post apps, and I use both PrPro and Resolve as well as Ae on a regular basis.
It's Life as a video post person. Run the proxies/t-codes while on a break. They work quite spiffily after you've got them. Easier to switch between them than ever before.
I spend a lot of time with pro colorists ... and getting that "crap" to work with annoys the Hades out of them. And they're not based in PrPro either.
As of now Quick Sync nor Nvenc can playback that codec. I have heard Apple's M1 chip can play it back even at 8K. Rumor has it Intel's Quick Sync will get a revamp with Alder Lake. As of now most people just use 4:2:0 color space. It still looks good.
