Dropped Frames and Latency Woes
I recently switched from Final Cut Pro X to Premiere Pro, and I've run into a performance issue. To be clear, I've seen several questions about Premiere's rendering performance, but none about its editing performance. Since I started adding clips to the timeline, it has started dropping way more frames than I'm seeing during playback. And its latency for "play" and "pause" when I hit the spacebar has become very noticeable. None of these issues were present when I was sub-clipping.
All of the footage is located on my 1 TB SSD boot drive, where the application is installed. I realize this would be a problem if I was using an HDD, but with my SSD, I'm not sure it is. Full hardware specifications below.
What are the best practices for increasing Premiere's performance while editing and playing back in the application?
