  • USB3 editing performance issues?

    This thread is more to see if it’s worth reporting as a bug to Adobe. I know it wasn’t an ideal set up to begin with but the project was so small I thought I could get away with it.

    Editing some Canon 5DmkII footage off my friend’s Western Digital Passport drive connected via USB3. Premiere had some glaring performance issues when playing back the footage (Warp Stabilizer would freeze at initialization, hitting play would stall, the program monitor would go black or wouldn’t update) and I’m only running a single track of audio and video. Throughput of the drive seems to test similar to, if not slightly higher, than FW800 which I’ve never had a problem editing directly off of.

    Running my USB3 input from the popular ASUS P8Z68V Pro/Gen 3 motherboard, PC/WIN7 based system.

    Once I moved the project to one of my internal drives, it worked like a champ.

    Anyone experience similar performance issues with USB3 in particular?

    Not with USB 3.0 specifically but with several WD Caviar Black drives that test OK and generally work fine except freeze for 15 seconds every so often.

    I don’t think it has anything to do with Adobe. I’d try a different USB 3.0 drive first, then go from there.

    ASUS seems to offer different modes you can run USB 3.0 in for better performance, you may just need to switch the USB3 mode. This video might help you out:
