    I know it’s not what you want to do, but I think you’re best bet would be to simply create these conditions with your own cameras, and capture what your viewfinder sees into your computer, then either record it or create stills to demonstrate your point.

    It might be much faster then searching whatever stock libraries might have – you may not find exactly what you want, and of course, you’ll have to pay for it.

    Hi – I picked up an inexpensive USB capture devices a few months ago becasue I found a box of old Hi 8MM tapes – I used the RCA out from an old Sony camcorder (mid 1990s vintage) to USB in…results were okay.

    I didn’t try to use camera mode. only playback.

    Take a look at Puget workstations – we’re talking way more in the way of price then Best Buy, HP or Dell, (but less then Apple). In my case, paid about $5500 for a system late in 2016 that is still going strong.

  • My situation is a little different because, although most of my footage is shot 4K, frequently I will have some 1080p footage as well, and since at this stage I’m delivering in 1080p, my sequences are all 1080p.

    I will select all the 4K footage in the sequence, and click “set to frame size” so that it’s all visible in the program window, and if I want to crop or pan the 4k footage, will simply rescale and reposition in the effects control window.

    Does the speakers drop if you play it outside of Premiere?…I might try to export it as a wav file, then play it though a media player, iTunes, Audition etc to see if the behavior is unique to your timeline within Premiere or in your overall output.

    Hi – you’ve probably done this already, and this is not a solution, but in terms of looking deeper – I might play the timeline with the audio clip mixer or audio track mixer windows open and just watch that as you get to the point where you experience the drop and see if the track is dropping or just the output to your speakers.

    Another thing you can do is export the timeline as an audio file and open it in Audition, or through a media player and see if the problem exists outside of Premiere.

    For me, I prefer to monitor my audio with wired headphones – at least for the subtle decisions.

    I generally don’t delete my unused sequences during an edit or even later on – but I segregate them within the project by creating bins for final sequences and segregating them that way – could always do the reverse and set up a bin for unused sequences.

    I read the page you linked…as long as the Neat filter is applied before Lumetri adjustments, all works just fine. I haven’t encountered the issue with Warp Stabilizer simply becasue I rarely use it so I can’t speak to that.

    Somewhere out there is a Youtube video where the host did a very in depth comparison between Red Giant and Neat – plusses and minuses both ways – in the end he liked Neat just a bit better – I must have watched this about a year ago – do some digging, and if I find it I’ll pass it along.

    I’ve been using the Neat Video plug-ins for at least 5 years – does an excellent job. Price is affordable:
