Premiere Pro - RAM Filling up until computer crashes
I'm posting a new topic for this issue as the other 5-page thread isn't getting any replies from Adobe Support no more and this serious issue is impacting my work enourmously.
My Adobe premiere auto-updated to the latest 2021 version 15.2 and the **** started again :
As soon as I open Premiere my RAM starts to gain more and more every minute one GB Ram is added, without even having any footage in my timeline. After a while my computer freezes completely with the RAM filled up over my maximum amount (for example the activity monitor says that Premiere is using 170GB of Ram but I only have 72 GB of Ram installed) and I get the following dialog : "Force Quit Applications - Your system has run out of application memory". At that moment most of the time I can't even force quit Premiere and need to turn off my mac by holding the power button.
What's even more odd : if I do manage to force-quit Adobe Premiere during the freeze, I am not able to re-open Premiere again after it, and I am not able to restart my computer and also have to turn it off manually to be able to restart my mac and run Premiere.
It's very important to say this doesn't happen on version 14.5 . But on every version starting from 15.
I tried everything, clearing caches, changing preference to memory instead of performance, disabling hardware acceleration, ..
My specs are a 2020 10-core iMac with 72 GB of ram and RX 5700 XT .
It seems to happen in the latest Adobe Media Encoder and After Effects as well.
I hope anyone can help me out.
Confirming: Whether you launch PPro, AE, or AME, in every case the application launches, but then consumes all available RAM and freezes your system?
Hi - Just following this up.
I also used the CC Cleaner tool and resetted my PRAM / VRAM and did a Ram memtest (which was fine).
I just did a full uninstall of every Adobe App on my mac. Afterwards I did an Uninstall of the creative cloud app.
Re-installed creative cloud and Adobe Premiere.
Problem still the same... went from 12GB memory usage after opening Adobe Premiere to 72GB Memory usage in 30 min and still going...
I've just opened After Effects 2021 latest build, same Issue, as soon as I open any project the Ram starts building up with about 1GB every 10 seconds (I am not doing anything or starting any sequence).
When opening after effect I get the following error :
Internal verification failure resource fork usage has been deprecated
I tried deleting all my Adobe prefs (both in User Library and Macintosh HD Library) , still the same issue.
