  1. Use GPU video decode in source windows for h.264, h.265, 8 and 10 bit

    All modern videocards support fast video-decode. Premiere is not using this free bonus.

    We and many users experience sloppy 4K ans 8K performance in source window with dropping frames and hight CPU utlilization as a result.

    The new Nvidia RTX2060 RTX 2070 and RTX2080 even support 10 bits video decoding. See decode matrix form Nvidia.

    Even the fastest CPU will have problems some videostreams, even 4K 10 bit drops frames not to speak of 8K. With hardware decoding this is no longer a problem. The CPU utilization will be lower and the Premiere will be more responsive as a result.

  2. Enable GPU Rendering of Essential Graphics effects

    Rendering a 4 - 6 second essential graphics effect should not take 5 minutes. Please enable GPU acceleration.

  3. Robust Proxy-File Management Module

    With proxy files being a necessity for high-resolution video files, it only makes sense to give the user more control over them.

    I propose a "Proxy File Browser" window where the user can see the current file location of the active project's proxy files, as well as interact with said proxies. The "Proxy File Browser" window should also have a handful of features like "Unlink," "Unlink and Delete," and "Re-render with New Settings."

    It is very time-consuming to have the user manually navigate and manage the proxy files through the operating system's file explorer since some projects can contain many…

  5. change the tracks order on the timeline

    It would be great to change the tracks order on the timeline: move up or down, or even better....drag it!

  6. Fix Audio Previews/Rendering

    Currently, Premiere Pro has no indicator for audio rendering, and appears to render all audio prior to starting playback, causing lag spikes upwards of 20s with a large multi-track file.

    This would be okay, if somewhat annoying, if Premiere actually cached and retained this audio after this first time. However, that is not the case. Premiere does not cache the audio to disk, and will discard all of it immediately if you so much as click out of the program for half a second, causing another 20s lag spike before you can start playback again.

    Additionally, people have reported related…

  7. Add Full Metal 2.0 support

    Please add Metal 2.0 support in Mac OSX to utilize 100% of GPU and CPU during playback, render & export. It's a killer feature for any Editor on Mac platform.

  11. Canon C200 RAW - worse performance at half res than at full res

    The new Canon C200 RAW support appears to have performance issues on Windows using CUDA. We tested the 14-core iMac Pro with 4K 24FPS Canon C200 RAW video and can get ~22FPS at full res and 24FPS at half res. On a PC with a Core i9 7940X, GTX 1080 Ti, 128GB of RAM, and a Samsung 960 Pro 1TB storage drive we are getting ~23FPS at full res and ~19FPS at half res.

    Performance shouldn't get worse at lower playback resolutions, and since this isn't happening on a Mac it appears to be an issue with the Windows version…

  12. The 12.1 updates makes random distortions/glitches and .png files, and other clips

    The 12.1 update has completely messed up all Premiere saved project files and clips contained inside them, showing random distortions/glitches and .png files, and video clips, and then random placements again upon export, which are not visible when going back to the timeline for review

  13. Fix VFR Performance

    There are are numerous threads on the Adobe Forums concerning VFR performance issues in 13.1.4. These users are seeing a large detriment when editing VFR compared to steady frame rate footage. Please fix this performance issue or post official documentation describing the issue and offering troubleshooting steps such as transcoding with open source software including Handbrake. Threads:

  15. render selection

    Render Selection should work on 'Yellow bar' real-time effects. If you want to guarantee real time playback you should be able to make a timeline selection eg. selecting all the captions on a layer and rendering the selection. Currently, captions are normally 'yellow bar' so Render Selection does not work.

  16. Make Optical Flow the Default for Time Interpolation

    From what I've seen, Optical Flow is almost always the best option for Time Interpolation. As such, I really think it should be the default setting. At the very least, give us an option to set out preference.

  17. Render and Replace is Extremely Ineffecient

    Given the prolific "GPU Render Error" bug affecting... most people, using "Render and Replace" on any AE-nested layers (something I use heavily) has become an important part of my workflow.
    However, the "rendering" is... slow as ****. It doesn't use ANY system resources compared to actually rendering the file in AE or nesting the layer, rendering that nested sequence out, and bringing it back in - both of which are very inefficient approaches.
    On any system I've used, CPU and GPU load stays extremely low and the render takes far longer than it would through other render methods.
    This feature…

  19. Non Linear Render Optimization of GPU and CPU actions when exporting and rendering.

    Currently rendering of effects (in/out) starts at the beginning of the timeline and works toward the end. Often GPU will be rendering while CPU is idle, and then GPU stops working and we see the CPU cores go active. Why not simultaneous usage of GPU and CPU? If an the application is rendering a section of CPU intensive computations, and there next section of the timeline is GPU, why wait for the GPU to get to work on that section? Been watching CPU and GPU history alternate for several minutes. Oh great, now it beach balled mid render.

  20. Autosave - saves every 5 minutes until you need it

    Multiple times over the last few months I've had Premiere crash on me and when I go to restore from an autosave I'll notice that it's kept multiple autosave files consistently...but for some reason the last one saved was over an hour ago. I set my autosave file limit to 100 and tell it to save every 5 minutes. How does autosave continue to fail like this?
