Footage very choppy during playback?

I am fairly new to Premier and I am use CC. I am editing a wedding that was shot on Cannon and Sony DSLR and when I playback the footage it's extremely choppy, jittery, freezes etc. It does not play smoothly. Is this a setting I need to change in Adobe? I don't believe it's my PC as it's a DELL workstation 4TB HD, 18GB RAM, Video card GEFORCE 750TI so it should handle raw HD footage fine. I have added a screenshot of the footage details along with video clip of the footage to this message. If you need any other questions ask away.

Thanks for the help!
Paul

You have the playback set a full resolution. Drop it 1/2 or maybe even 1/4. the GTX 750 Ti will work but it is a mediocre GPU. Any Desktop Quad Core i7 at 3 GHZ or higher should work OK as well.

I assume you have a bunch of different cameras/ camera angles stacked up in your timeline. In which case a 2GB card may not be enough. Having done this for awhile and used several workstations my experience is that your video card is at least as important as your processor speed and RAM.

Hi Paul,

How is the G: drive (for video) connected? Make sure it is not USB 2.0, too slow.

Regarding footage, for best results, copy ENTIRE contents of SD card to new folder on hard drive. Includes ALL FILES/FOLDERS, not just video clips. Then in Premiere, import using Media Browser. I've seen this import method help with choppy playback. Has other benefits as well, like joining spanned clips automatically, avoiding duplicate clip confusion in Premiere, etc.

Thanks

Thanks for the help. The first response was correct, I set the preview screen to 1/4 and all is good!

Thanks for the help!
Paul
