Huge performance issues Version 2021 15.0
Hey guys, I've noticed a pretty intense performance hit since updating from PP 2020. Basically any timeline will pin my CPU at 100% upon playback. Even loading new projects (going from 2020-2021) will leave the computer nearly frozen for about 2 min. This is complete CPU overload, all apps stutter, mouse lags & tons of audio drop outs.
I just rolled back to PP2020 and the timeline plays very smoothly. CPU hit around 11% usage. Is this a bug? Was there some new feature that targets more core usage? I was hoping for more core utilization on my Threadripper 3970x but not like this! lol

So far no improvement. Just opened up a new project in PP2021 and imported a ProRes 422 with no fx - just straight into a new timeline. Still the CPU is pinned at 100%
Curious to hear your thoughts. Attached is a screenshot of my CPU usage. The higher one is from PP2021 & the Lower one is from PP2020. Same timeline, same media & FX. Appreciate the support!
