Premiere and After Effects memory leak
Premiere and After Effects 2021 start leaking memory as soon as they are opened.
It doesn't matter what project is open. There can be no projects open, but they start leaking memory immediately. I open activity monitor and the memory just keeps going up indefinitely.
This originally started on Mojave. I tried upgrading to Catalina, same issue. I am now on Big Sure, same issue.
This basically makes these programs completely unusable.
VERSIONS SEEMINGLY AFFECTED:
Premiere 14.9 and later
After effects 17 and later
I have tried:
- updating Mac OS
- reinstalling OS
- formatting hard drive, reinstalling OS
- uninstalled premiere/after effects
- uninstalled creative cloud
- used adobe creative cloud cleaner to uninstall everything
Mac OS Big Sur 11.3
MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2019)
2.4 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9
32 GB 2400 MHz DDR4
Radeon Pro Vega 20 4 GB

I do not understand how no one seems to be paying any attention. How can a memory leak be restricted to a small number of users? Also, see this thread in the "Adobe Support Community" forums and repost there, perhaps someone will notice:
