Premiere is sooooo laggy on Apple MBPro M1 Max 64GB
For some reason (seen this on other forums) Premiere cannot handle even the simplest editing without lagging HORRIBLY on the new M1 Max on my MB Pro which is spec'd out with max memory.
Davinci handles even the most complex clips with effects and color grading flawlessly, I don't understand why Premiere is so buggy it is the biggest headache, I'm doing simple text overlays and I want to chuck the whole thing in the trash.
This is definitely not expected and not what we're seeing with most customers. Here are a couple of things to try:
1. Make sure you're using the latest version of Premiere Pro - that's v22.2.
2. Delete your media cache: https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/kb/clear-cache.html
3. Temporarily disable plug-ins and extensions by moving them out of their folder and putting them in a folder on your desktop. Plug-ins are here: /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0/MediaCore; extensions are here: /Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/Extensions
You should be getting excellent performance and if not, I'm sure it's something we can help with.
