  1. Making better use of the Hardware, GPU for Playback and Debayering and using mutiple cores.


    • Use the Power of GPU for better Playback Performance

    • In General I noticed a much greater Performance with FCPX and Resolve. I would LOVE to see the Performance in Premiere.

    • iMac Pro Hardware support aswell as MacBooks and all common used editing machines.
      Note: I cant get full Resolution 4K Playback with an iMac Pro (in ProRes or C200 RAW as well as some 4K h.265 from a consumer camera files)

    As Wes noted, we are looking at many areas for optimization and have made strides in the last few releases already.

    We recognize there are still many areas to improve performance and we are investing in appropriate areas.

    Threads that are catch-alls are often non-actionable. Please keep giving us specific feedback on what workflows are slow for you.

    Technical solutions may not always be as obvious as some people may be suggesting as the application architecture is often very different than people’s conception.

    Short answer. Yes, we want to and will make it faster.

  2. Premiere Pro CC 2019 13.0.2 search / find / bin filter issues

    SEARCH/FIND/BIN NOT WORKING!

    After the update to Premiere Pro CC 13.0.2 (on a Macbook Pro running OS 10.13.6) I started having issues with the project panel bin filter search not showing clips that I knew were in the project - I'd search for a word in the name of a clip and no clips would show up. I tried using the Cmd-F tool instead, and Premiere would either find nothing or stall out and rainbow wheel. Creating a search bin also failed to work properly - I'd create one to search for a word that was in the name or…

  3. Save thumbnails cache for project panel thumbnail view

    The processing of thumbs at each opening of the project is really distressing. I would like to have the option to save these metadata at disk for faster start.

  4. Better Proxy Relinking

    Many times i have had to manually relink proxies.

    Premiere needs better file recognition to be able to relink proxies encoded externally or internally. understanding _Proxy endings an din general relink proxies automatically, more often.

  5. Mouse disappearing after latest update

    The mouse disappears after switching from editing to audio mode. I've tried this a couple times to see if it was a one time thing and it happened again.

  6. Please fix flickering play-head resulting in inactive timeline

    Still getting this flickering playhead issue. My interface basically become inactive when this happens. I've done everything: Update graphics card, updated Adobe Premiere and reworked my cache and ram. I've configured the graphics on the computer for Premiere and udated the C++ preview files. There is really no workaround for this? (Video of what is happening attached)

    Work Computer:

    Windows 10.0.18362

    Ryzen 7 2700 Eight-Core

    16 GB Ram

    AMD Radeon RX 580

  9. Poor Performance in Premiere Pro CC 2018 (12.1 and 12.1.1) with ProRes footage

    Full report is detailed here: https://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/support-software/Poor-Performance-in-Premiere-Pro-CC-2018-Ver-12-1-X-with-ProRes-footage-1150/

    The short of it is that with the 12.1.0 and 12.1.1 versions of Premiere Pro, I'm seeing up to 35% longer export times and up to twice as many dropped frames during live playback with ProRes 422 HQ and 4444 footage compared to version 12.0.1. As far as troubleshooting, here are the steps I have already gone through:

    1) Reinstalled Premiere Pro
    2) Reinstalled Windows 10 Pro (and Premiere Pro again)
    3) Reset Premiere Pro preferences
    4) Created fresh .prproj files
    5) Tried older GPU drivers (397.31, 390.77, and 388.71)
    6) Tried both a…

  10. Finish the job with Canon c200 raw

    I love that Canon has taken the first step to support the Canon Raw format - but without GPU support for the export/Debayering it is more window dressing than a function pros will use. In its current state this is one more reason to use Resolve. Our tests showed dramatic export time differences between the 2 NLE's and my only guess is lack of complete processor support.

  11. .Mogrt performance is super slow in 2020

    Specific issues:
    Sluggish scrubbing, choppy playback, longer load time.

    Our dev team was super excited to hear about the new upgrades, but have found performance is dramatically slowed down in the latest version.

    Curious if there will be a patch to fix it, or if there are new development standards to make tools align with the new version? (New code optimization techniques etc.)

    Also attached a clip comparing the speed of 2019 to 2020.

  13. Better Support For LongGOP

    I would love to see better support for H.264 LongGOP. I have a dual XEON rackmount workstation, dedicated NVME cache drive, dedicated NVME RAID array, and NVIDIA 980ti GPU yet Premier Pro still cannot edit 4K @ 30FPS LongGOP H.264 encoded media out of my GH5 and DJI Phantom Pro4 without having to create proxies.

    I have followed all of the Premier Pro optimization guides that I can find including dedicated cache drive, disabling adjustment layers until the final render, enabling NVIDIA CUDA acceleration, playback resolution at 1/8, etc. Yet it still stutters badly without proxies on almost all of…

  14. .mogrts almost unusable in 2020

    Not sure what changed, but I'm unable to use .mogrt's effectively after the 2020 update. Overall performance is really slow both in the timeline and with previews rendering them unusable in some cases.

    It appears to be an issue for 90% of .mogrts imported. Even mogrts with very light weight graphics. So it is likely code related.

  16. Premiere's Search Bar not working in v.13.0.2

    Hi All,

    Premiere's Search bar isn't working properly again and wondering how to fix this issue. Using version 13.0.2. Tried to "Save All Projects", "Close All Projects", then "Open Project", waited for all media to be loaded and still wouldn't get the search bar working. Anyone have a solution to fix this issue/bug?

  17. Project Manager not working after recent update

    After the most recent Premiere Prop update (April 2018) I have noticed the project manager no longer works on my Mac running OSX 10.11.05. I have tried various solutions such as resaving the file, saving to different locations and renaming all assets to remove all non letter/numerical characters. Nothing seems to work I just get the "unknown error" message right before the files finish copying and then no folder or files are creating in the destination location. Have tried with at least 4 different projects and the same thing occurs.

  19. 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.
