Default Playback momentarily stops when editing within playlists

Does this not bug the hell out of anyone else? It never used to do this. I honestly think I would prefer to have the old system back. It feels like such a basic thing, to be able to move clips about without playback stopping, that I can't believe anyone at AVID thinks this a compromise worth having in order to have whatever new fancy playlist functions we now have. It's so, so horrible. How on earth are you supposed to edit anything together on the fly with this spluttering and stopping? You can't even move from a track in "playlist" view onto another track without it stopping, even if the clip is on the "top" playlist. You can't even delete clips without it pausing! Jeez.


It's so bad. Did I tell you how bad I think it is? Bad, that's how bad.

I removed some clips with cmd+B and it worked.

Yeah, on the top playlist. Now try doing it on one of the other lanes.

Could you exactly explain what you are doing?
I really don't get it.

Maybe I never worked the way you do.

It look like it's another one of those intermittent bugs, I can't get it to do with it with just one track playing. Let me get back to you with a recipe...

Yep, I've experienced this issue and I hate it. It is indeed bad

The basic formula is, have a track or groups of tracks with alternate playlists. Go to playlist view. While playing back, make any kind of edit to an alternate playlist (i.e, cut a clip, move the clip, delete the clip, etc). The playlist that you're editing doesn't have to be solo'ed for it to momentarily stop

I think this is some kind of buffering issue? I seem to only be able to recreate it when there are a lot of playlists, some plugins on the track, that sorta thing. Still super annoying though, and didn't used to be an issue. I think it started to happen when they introduced the target playlist features

He's talking about playback being momentarily interrupted when making any change of any kind to a clip on an underlying playlist. I've experienced this off and on through quite a number of updates over several years, so it's not new. It only happens in certain projects, and to this day I've never been able to identify a common factor. It is most annoying when it happens.
