Hey folks,

I just changed my editing software and went from FCP to Premiere Pro CC 2015.
Starting up the program, creating a new Project, importing files is all fine.
The problem starts when I try to playback a clip or try to drag it onto the timeline. Premiere says something like there is a serious error and it would try to save a copy of the project.
Restarting the computer and reopening the project leads instantly without doing anything to the same result, Premiere is crashing.
I checked different footage from a different camera in a new project, same thing.

This is my system: OS X 10.10.4 on Mac Pro 3,1 - 24GM RAM - Quad-Core Intel Xeon 2,8 GHz - ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT and NVIDIA Quadro 4000
Footage is on an external HD via Firewire 800

I would be very thankful if anyone could give me a hint how to solve the problem.

Thanks in advance,
best B.

Try taking out one of your GPUs.

Very much appreciated!

If you want multiple GPUs I'd get either AMD or Nvidia cards. Using both at the same time might mess up GPU supported programs.

I thought PP CC 2015 required a later version of the OS. Not so?

[Tero Ahlfors] "Try taking out one of your GPUs."

That indeed was the solution, but what if I wanted to hook up a third monitor?
I would need a second GPU then. Is it likely that there is no problem when I put in a secondary graphics card from the same type?

Get a single GPU that has multiple outputs.

My machine is too old I am afraid (mac pro 3,1).
There are only very few GPUs supported by both my computer and Adobe CC.
