    Pr 15.x is a dog on my super MacPro7,1. Metal works OK on 14.9 (but is still inferior to OpenCL), but I can't do jack on old projects in 15.4.1, so I'm stuck on Pr 2020 14.9. Once I drop a third party effect on any video clip, that ends real-time playback. Some "upgrade."

    Metal performance is MUCH WORSE in Pr 15 than in Pr 14.

    There's a workaround. It shouldn't be necessary, but you can finish your project. Nest your clips, render, import, place the rendered clip on the topmost video track. Go back to the sequence containing the nest, and do your speed ramping on the nest. Alternatively, you can replace the nest with the rendered movie file. It's a PITA, but it works.

    Full agreement, Neil. Kerning should be consistent across all Adobe apps. It appears that Adobe bought all their text graphic technology from some other company. Weird, because Adobe wrote the bible of PostScript, scalable font technology.

    I can't believe this request only has three votes.

    I can confirm this behavior, mostly on certain Long-GOP codecs, DJI in particular. AVCHD is bad, too, but that's a lousy codec to begin with, as it's highly compressed, which stresses the CPU on playback. I have iStatMenus installed, where I can see my RAM usage and CPU load at all times, and I'm getting dropped frames & freezes with these certain codecs and very little load on my system's resources (<25%). VLC plays the footage that Premiere doesn't (including AVCHD) beautifully with no frame dropping whatsoever.
