    As Wes noted, we are looking at many areas for optimization and have made strides in the last few releases already.

    We recognize there are still many areas to improve performance and we are investing in appropriate areas.

    Threads that are catch-alls are often non-actionable. Please keep giving us specific feedback on what workflows are slow for you.

    Technical solutions may not always be as obvious as some people may be suggesting as the application architecture is often very different than people’s conception.

    Short answer. Yes, we want to and will make it faster.

    I'm finishing up my current documentary on Adobe Premiere Pro, but finishing the Color Grade in DaVinci Resolve and the Sound Mix in Fairlight. I might just stay in DaVinci Resolve for the entire next project, better GPU utilization, no monthly license fee, and seamless workflow from start to finish for video projects. Perhaps the spectre of Resolve might encourage Adobe to see the light and support multiple GPU units on both Mac and PC, otherwise, I am going to stay away.

    Dear Adobe, PLEASE update your software to make better use of GPUs and multiple GPUs. I recently did a comparison of Adobe Premiere Pro with Lumetri and Red Giant Colorista color grading vs. Davinci Resolve and I was surprised to see that Adobe Premiere did not take advantage of the multiple GPUs nor does it make good use of the GPU compared to Davici Resolve and FCPX. In order to color grade and effects like denoise and stabilize to the final finish of my current project, I had to move the locked picture timeline to Davici Resolve for the final color grade and effects stage. The idea of being able to do it all in Premiere Pro looks good on paper, but without good GPU utilization, you are making it hard to stay in the Adobe world when across the border lies DaVinci Resolve calling out in a loud chorus: PERFORMANCE.

    This also happens with MacOS on a MacPro with the Radeon W5700X MPX, in my test on July 30, 2020 using Adobe Premiere 14.3.1, areas below 0% appear red, not black. And while export is fine, it's annoying to have to see these artifacts on playback. Adobe, please provide fix for these newer Radeon graphics cards soon.
