Bug Report: Premiere Pro 22.1.1 compatibility issues with Red Giant Universe 5.0.1 - Error Universe Runtime
Universe 5.0.1 seems to have an issue with the new Premiere Pro 22.1.1 Update. Premiere doesn't seem to be able to load the .aex-files. It massively slows down the startup of Premiere. You need to accept an error message ("Error connecting to Universe runtime. Please reinstall Universe.") for every Universe effect that is not loading, meaning 93 clicks are necessary to open up Premiere. The same problem occurs within a Premiere-Project, when trying to apply a Universe-effect; plus, in some cases, it causes Premiere or my PC to crash.
Reinstalling either Premiere Pro or Universe does not fix the problem. The only way to get Universe working again, is to downgrade back to Premiere 22.0.
This issue is now resolved.

This is a major problem that’s cost me a ridiculous number of hours in lost work time trying to fix/work on my projects. Please fix asap!

It's nearly the end of January and this issue is not resolved yet?
Rolling back is not a solution, it's a work around which can cause serious problems of compatibility...

Jonathan St. John commented
Chiming in -- Please fix this issue - I DO NOT want to roll back. Thank You!

Same Error here on version 22.1.2.. Rolled back to 22.0. Works again.
John Burton commented
I'm having the same problem. Rolling Premiere back to v22 breaks my Universe effects in projects. It looks like a static/glitch on every transition and effect. I have no way to work with my project.

Yea I work on large collaborative edits so version control is problematic. This bug has rendered the Red Giant Universe plugins unusable for almost a month now. Sounds like there are a lot us if in this situation. It would be great to see it addressed.

I got the same problem Adobe + Universe from Maxon. Errors and issues. Hard to work with the videos.
