I’ve just upgraded to Cubase 8 pro from Cubase 5 in an attempt to solve this issue, but to no avail.
I’m experiencing freezing during playback when using the video player. I can import the video file and open the player without issue. I get playback for anywhere between 5 and 30 seconds then everything (both video and interface) will freeze completely for 5-10 seconds, then un-freeze at a point further along in the project as if it has been playing behind the scenes.
I’ve updated my graphics drivers (dual Nvidia Quadro FX1700) and my sound card drivers (Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium).
I’ve also tried a large array of video formats including H264, MJPEG, MOV, AVI (Uncompressed and Compressed). All produce exactly the same result.
I’m running Windows 7 64bit, Intel Core 2 Quad, 16gb RAM and i’m running the project and assets from an external drive. Cubase works flawlessly when video is omitted.
Any help with this would be very much appreciated! Thanks!
