AMD Driver hang bug
Premier, After Effects and Media Encoder are causing driver hangs, either locking up the whole system causing it to crash and reboot, or at the very least causing the export to fail.
The issue seems to be with H264 encoding / acceleration, as if I export
to mov, the issue happens considerably less frequently. Whereas it is impossible to export to H624 currently.
Within the timeline, it seems to be affected most by transparent regions (such as drop shadows etc), and masked sections. It will hang, cause the system to hang too, and then will either return to a non responsive program, or crash the system. Waiting it out isn't something that works.
I have tried various drivers, and reinstalling all of the affected programs, both keeping, then resetting preferences, and clearing cache.
It has made for a workflow nightmare. Looking on Reddit there are a lot of people suffering with the same issue.
This only has started happening since the latest release of PR, AE and ME. It had been stable and fast for months.
Downgrading is not an option, as I cant convert my PR projects back to the old versions.
Ryzen 3600x, Radeon 5700XT, 32GB ram.
All drivers checked and current. Now running Radeon Pro Enterprise drivers for GPU which seems to be a little more stable.
