Premiere Beta runs out of Memory on Mac Mini M1 (says 70GB used)

Premiere Beta runs out of memory on my Mac Mini M1 (16GB RAM). To be specific, the window that pops up is from Mac OS, and Premiere seems to be OK but I save and close to be safe.

 

The weird thing is, the popup claims Premiere Beta is using 70GB memory. But I have it configured to optimize for "Memory" (not "Performance") and to use 8GB memory max.

 

The project has over 100 raw media footage files in it, each 2-3 minutes long. They're not all in use in the open Sequences, but they're imported in the project. Is Premiere Beta loading all of those clips in RAM, even if not used in any open sequences?

@Geoff5CBF No, Premiere would not be loading all those clips fully into RAM. That sounds like some other kind of memory issue. Is it possible to share your project file (no media) with me so I can see if I can make this happen on my end?

Just happened again, right when I went to Export. Seems to be related to Rendering/Exporting.

I'm having the same issue. When I open a project in PP 2021 on mac mini M1 2021, I get the "your system has run out of memory" message from the OS. The first time I tried to open it, the message said premiere was using 116 GB. The second time it's saying 6GB-- which is well below my 16GB ram, but I still can't seem to edit or do click anything in premiere. 

 

Premiere M1 is not in beta anymore. The computer is brand new, got it yesterday. Any fixes for this?
