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.

22.1.2 still doesn't fix the issue, now I didn't do _all_ the steps recommended by Red Giant, however rolling back still solves this issue.

There were problems with Cinematch as well. Their support told me that Adobe made changes forcing them to update and issue a new version. This might be a huge thing going forward, potentially causing a lot of plugins to break.
How about Adobe focusing on optimizing the Premiere performance they have neglected for 10 years instead of causing these kind of problems...
