Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this question, but, I'm having a issue with Premiere Pro CS6 from Creative Cloud. Whenever I put footage in the timeline this happens: . The file's encoding is fine and it happens with every file. I'm running it on a MacBook Pro Retina. Does anyone have any ideas on how I could try and get Premiere working?
It looks like a problem with the playback engine. I would try updating your video card drivers and/or making sure the playback engine (in the project/ project settings/general menu) is set to Mercury Playback Engine Software Only. If that doesn't work, I'd try uninstalling and re-installing Premiere.
I don't know what can cause it on Mac OS, but on Windows seeing something from another application through a portion of a window is generally a sign of a graphics driver being misconfigured or misused by the software in question.
