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.

Better optimization for 2019 Mac Pro, including being able to fully utilize dual AMD Radeon Pro Vega II 32s and Apple Afterburner.
JW Schram commented
Yes, better optimization for Pro Macs in general (Mac Pro 2019 w Vega II 32 in my case) would be highly appreciated. I understand the team has to try and find the best solution for many different use cases and setups. But the difference in general performance between Premiere and Resolve / Fcpx is too big.

Adding hardware support for new Mac Pro Optimization. and AMD Radeon Pro Vega !! 32
John Danielson commented
in all seriousness.. how is this not #1 priority and how has this NOT been implemented? this is really all we want. just like the comment below me stated, FCPX and Resolve are LIGHTYEARS ahead when it comes to overall performance. im on a 10core iMac pro with 128 gigs of ram and a Vega 64 GPU yet an h.264 file from an a7sii stutters at full quality playback. HA! what a JOKE! the same file in FCPX and Resolve plays back without a hitch and I can scrub back and forth as my heart desires and I can see every frame flash before me. it's heartbreaking because the software is GOOD but its ******* SLOW and it seems like nobody gives a flying **** in the corporate offices. you'd think with all the cash flying in from monthly subscriptions that adobe could hire someone with an actual brain to fix their bloated software mess. or actually.. does anyone even work at adobe?? open captions have been a buggy mess that hasn't been fixed and yet there's plenty of comments within that thread on here saying, "hey it would be really nice to finally receive a response from adobe about this". or how about the fact you guys said prores raw support was coming Q4 of 2019.. but here we are 2nd month into February with NO response AT ALL from adobe in that thread and yet its people writing daily, "hey so when is this coming? it would be nice to have an announcement at least". yet here you guys are completely ghosting people. what's is going to take for you guys to LISTEN AND COMMUNICATE WITH THE USERS PAYING TO USE YOUR SOFTWARE? a massive strike outside of your corporate offices? dont even get me started on how slow and bloated Lightroom feels. It's 2020 but I feel like im in 1995 with adobe.

Please optimize Premiere Pro for the new 2019 Mac Pro, including full support of the AMD Radeon Pro Vega, as well as the Apple Afterburner card. Resolve and FCPX are crushing it right now and destroying the competition, all while Premiere keeps chugging along slowly. I'm starting to work on client projects and hold sessions in Resolve now because I'm tired of making up excuses for the slow playback and glitchy rendering.

well, goal achieved, after not being able to work with native material of a DSLR in h264. I am working with Davinci,
good job adobe, my most sincere congratulations
please anyone knows the twitter account of any kind of boss? because im sure that if the bosses see that and realize the real real real damage to the company is doing this policy of "my clients is my beta testers", im sure that after rolling heads this will be solved.. this is clearly a problem of the people working there, not of the clients, its neccessary to fire a lot of people. AND NO, I WILL NOT BE YOUR BETA TESTER, IM YOUR FINAL CLIENT, its a shame, contract young people or pay me for the info. this win-win method will you get to lost millions of subscriptions, im sure,
Adobe you are conscious that the only reason beacuse people pay the subscription is for premiere? the rest of software is easily piraciable, you are earning millions with this and you dont to contract 20 scholars and put them to check any (mac and pc, please) before to share the world? really you think that your clients will be your happy beta testers and also pay you for that?
every time you say put only cpu a kitty dies.

Conforming media should get better attention for multi core workflows, in my opinion:

Hello Adobe !
If You so care about perfomance, just add these things:
1. NVENC acceleration for exporting in to H264/H265 formats ( is is funny but 3th party plugins for Premiere pro like VUKODER & Cinegy already do this, but Adobe only think about it )
2. Add NVENC support for decoding H264/H265 during playback ( Just install Davinci resolve 15 and check how smooth playback of H264/H265 files there, even in multicam sequences, even at 2x or 4x speed WITHOUT PROXY)
3. Fix audio sync in PluralEyes way - without add each file to separate track :)))
4. Add Noice reduction for video GPU accelerated.
5. Fix Quick Sync acceleration to reach real smooth playback like in FinalCut X
6. Finaly add RENDER AND REPLACE with effects aplayed
If this things will be done in PP - many clients for sure will be happy.
You have an audio hardware menu--please add GPU hardware as a menu. GPU's are typically hundreds to thousands of dollars, and it's a major oversight not to have a menu for them. Give us an icon that shows when GPU is being used, too.
The Rendering Performances are embarassing... and also CPU and GPU use is very poor... so the hundred-cost PC/MAC should be used at 1/4 or 1/8 preview quality and to render a 1m clip need until an Hour (only for a lumetri and looks effects...)
And we pay 40÷70€/month for this... mah...
We are actively continuing to make optimizations and performance improvements in several areas.
We are listening to these requests. Thank you for the feedback.

did someon try new version from october ? is better, faster or more stable ?
this is what is taking Premiere Pro out of the game. I've always been an Adobe fan boy, but am looking at swapping to Final Cut or Resolve because of the poor optimization
Resolve performance is so WAY BETTER! On the same hardware! H264 4K scrubbing is like with proxies, but without proxies and no wasted hours for conversion!
Even file import is instant, while in Premiere you have to sit and wait holding your mouse button for a minute, so that drag and drop can finish to DROP!
➡️I AM SHOCKED: If you want a comparison between FCPX - Premiere Pro and DaVinci watch this
PS: If you don't understand German just fast forward and watch the charts. they speak for themselves.

Reposting this in several threads with the hope of getting some 1 on 1 help- but YES!
I'm running on Intel Core i9-7940x with 14 cores, 64GB Ram, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, a separate internal SSD for cache, separate SSD for program files, and editing Panasonic EVA1 4K footage off of an internal 1TB SSD.
The program is being incredibly buggy- it will boot up fine and give me no problems for about ten minutes, then the lag will start. It starts as an annoyance but progresses to un-workable. I've tried everything in this forum :
Premiere Pro CC 2017 lag
I tried proxies...no dice.
This comes after a long string of events for us-we had a similar issue on an iMac a few weeks ago that brought us to the point of not being able to edit. We invested in a beast of a machine, tried rebuilding our projects from scratch, tried different drives at different speeds....nothing but issues! Please help
Major performance issues here as well. I could not edit my last project without constantly rendering in to out point. Even on 1/4. The footage was only Full HD. There were few video overlays, audio tracks and keyframing going on. But I feel like, there should be better performance.
My current rig:
Because the headache this project gave me, due to major performance issues I have bought the other day a new setup.
We will see, how the performance will be. I heard that the Adobe guys are working on multi-core performance, that's good 👍
