I'm getting ridiculously bad playback out of Premiere CS6 after updating to 6.0.1. I spent a day shooting motocross at high framerates in 2K, 3K, 4K and 5K. RED Player and RCX Pro play the files very smoothly. Premiere chokes totally on all of them and keeps on throwing up the yellow "Media Pending" screen, regardless of where the files reside.
Windows 7 64-bit
Nvidia GTX-460 (for GUI/display)
Nvidia GTX-580 3GB (for heavy lifting)
Intel i7-3930K CPU (no overclocking)
Asus Rampage IV Extreme mobo
32GB of RAM
RED Station via eSATA (160-180 megabytes per second to RAM)
1) Adobe Speedgrade playback performance is excellent due to RED Rocket use. (Until Nvidia OpenGL driver crashes, i.e. for about 3 minutes.)
2) Before updating Premiere to 6.0.1, I could see REDCOLOR3 and REDGAMMA3 listed in clip Source Settings. After update, both are missing.
3) After Effects is trying to use GTX-460 for OpenGL and claims there are no supported CUDA display adapters in the system.
4) Have tested Nvidia graphics drivers 301.42 and 304.79 (beta). Both exhibit display driver and OpenGL driver crashes. Exiting RED Player can cause a display driver crash. Once the driver crashed while Windows was doing nothing but copying files from one drive to another.
Will test Da Vinci Resolve 9 next.
Any advice and/or recommendations is much appreciated.
edit: Amended text a bit to make it clear that playback performance went to hell after 6.0.1 update.
