Adobe Premiere 2021 - poor playback on underpowered computer

been a couple of weeks I've upgraded my Premiere to 2021 version and the playback-bug sucks too badly that I decided to downgrade to the 2019 version. Playback is superslow and one can barely see what's going on on the timeline. don't know what the problem was but I finally downgraded to 2019. things usually progress in newer versions, apparently Adobe has decided to regress. this also is evident in new Caption system of premiere pro 2021 which you cannot add two or more captions at the same time in a typical way. 

 

Mod note: I changed the title to reflect the user's problem.

What's your hardware? Each new major version of PrPro needs more and newer gear. Which is a pain, but so do all the other high-end apps.

 

The new captions process is a major, major upgrade in quite a few ways, and needing modifications for others. They're quite openly talking of it as a work in process and wanting users to chime in on the Premiere Pro Public Beta forum with their results, needs, complaints, and wishes.

Hello Neil, thank you for your response. I'm on windows 10, core i5 3450 - which i know is not quite high but still works well in premiere 2019 - and Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti + 16 G of RAM. I've seen in a bunch of forums the playback issue is epidemic among users unless the CPU usage of the program. The new caption system had quite good improvements, but I couldn't find a normal way to put more than one caption at once. I had to nest the first one and make another to solve the issue.
Thnx, Ali

 I take it five weeks ago your system performed like mine (video below) but now it does not because of the update. Are you editing H.264? If it used to work and no longer works the Nvenc might have stopped working because of the update. You might need a driver update for your GTX 1050 Ti. That being said your system is about the same as mine but I consider my system to be the bare minimum. You could try to disable the audio input. That works for some people.

Ali,

I would imagine your playback issue is because your CPU does not meet system requirements. Sorry.

LATEST

Premiere Pro & Avid are the two largest apps for editing pro work at this time. Avid still handles more of the long-form work but the last two years at Sundance, more than 50% of the films submitted were cut in PrPro.

 

With Avid well below that, and Resolve and FCPx after that.

 

So no matter what performance any of us individually gets, the top apps are PrPro, Avid, Resolve, and FCPx. With the latter two well below in usage for editing.

 

Resolve is still the widest used grading app.

 

So yes, high-end apps all. And all of them are just fancy hammers. A tool.

 

Use the tool that works best for you, and fits best in your hand. They're all pretty good.

Not sure what you mean by adding 2 or more captions at the same time?    I find the new caption workflow an amazing timesaver..  but maybe that's my workflow, preparing captions for a documentary for dvd and blu-ray.

in fact it is. in many ways it had major improvements, but when it comes to adding two captions at the same time - sometimes you need to add subtitle in two languages - it offers no additional caption track to do so! hopefully I recently found a threat concerning the issue:

Adding blocks to the text layer makes this possible, though I'm not pretty sure yet if it fulfills all my needs.
Best, Ali

The multiple blocks is an important tool. But it is a clunky way to add a second language for an entire video.

 

See "Show Multiple Caption Tracks" in my post here for another workaround:

There are so many features I've given up trying to use. THEY DON'T WORK! My most reason battle with customer service is that my master styles NEVER STAY! They keep disappearing! I have never EVER been so furious with another piece of software. It's almost ALMOST a scam.

It's so frustrating that Master Styles are project based. So you have to create the blasted thing over ... and over ... if you change projects.
