I don't know how can this be happening, I built a $1500 computer just to edit videos and apparently I can't even edit 1080p properly...Why is Premiere pro struggling with 60fps 1080p videos? Whenever I playback my video either with (full, 1/4 or 1/8) I get super choppy and laggy playback to the point where editing is unbearable (no effects applied).My specs shouldn't be a problem even for 4K video. Core i5 6600K (overclocked @4.4GHz) Cooler Master hyper 212x Kingston hyper fury X 2x4gb @2666MHz MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X (overclocked) WD blue 1TB Samsung 850 evo 256GbI have installed all of my adobe programs on ssd. Also when I start to playback the video in PPro the cpu usage goes to 100%P.S. Could it be because of the high video bitrate? (60-80mbs)?
As a computer builder myself I know the struggle of finding what kind of parts will work for video editing. Premiere pro on Windows 10 is very RAM heavy. As someone who edits 4k and 8k footage a lot there are some problems with Premiere and small amounts of RAM. One thing you can do is limit the amount of RAM Premiere is using under the preferences menu and set it lower than 8GB. What happens is that your system will run out of RAM and then start using the CPU cache causing it to spike to 100% and in some cases freezing your PC. Adobe recommends at least 16GB of RAM for Premiere with 32GB being what they like to use. If you can add more RAM that would be the best option. Also, make sure that the footage you are using is not causing it. I ran into the same issue and it was a problem with how the footage was copied onto the drive and I had to upload it from the camera again.
