Unwanted frozen frame at the start/end of clips when adding effects (Warp Stabilizer, Lumetri Color)

Copy link to clipboard


I'm editing in Premiere Pro CC 2021 Version 15.1.0 and having an issue that I've never had previously. I can edit my footage together fine, everything plays back smoothly, but when I put a certain effect on a clip it freezes the first frame. I've noticed this when I have color graded using Lumetri Color, as well as when I put a warp stabilizer effect on. The clip before the one with the effect will play fine all the way up to the start of the clip with the effect. As soon as the playback gets to the clip with the effect, the first frame will be the excat same as the second frame, making a subtle, but noticeable hesitation. After the second frame, the clip will play out normal. When I toggle the effect off the clip is fine, when I toggle it back on there is a frozen first frame. Has anyone had this problem/found a solution to it? I've never had this problem before, and I even went back to the 2020 version to try it there and the same thing occured, which makes me think some setting is on that shouldn't be, but I have no idea. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
