I have been editing videos on my 2019 MacBook pro no problem since I got the laptop. About a week ago Premiere Pro started going exceptionally slow, lagging when items are dragged into the timeline, effects take forever to be dragged over to a clip, playback is stuttering, etc etc....

My laptop is an I9 processor with 32 gb of ram (IE pleanty fast enough). I edit 4k footage but always keep it in 1/8 for playback. This change did not come with a new update or download. I have done absolutely everything I can think of to fix the issue, including completely reformating my computer. Does anyone know what happened and how I can fix it?

Are your other apps running fine? You might want to go through Adobe help and see if you can have a tech evaluate your computer to see if there's some gunk in the settings.

I went through them and they couldn't help. The issue seems super subjective but I went from editing multiple layers of 4k footage with alot of effects to struggling to do a 45 second social media clip over night.....

Did you happen to update to MacOS 12.2 or 12.2.1 recently? Premiere is running awful on latest MacOS. Stay on MacOS 12.1 until Adobe fixes it.

I hadn’t when it started to act up but one of the first "fixes" I tried was updating everything. Stupid move in retrospect.

Thank god someone has finally described exactly what I've been experiencing! The lag happened out of nowhere and Premiere Pro has been basically unusable since, can't drag anything, add effects or graphics, adjust clip size/position, etc.. I talked to customer care today and none of their tips on fixing it worked. Might've happened to us at the same time because it was working fine until maybe late January/early February. Like the other commenter said it could be a glitch with the latest MacOS maybe..

Exact same for me, and it sounds like I have the exact same model MacBook as well. Super frustrating. I'm also running the latest Mac OS. Best work around I've found is save and restart. Usually works fine in bursts before it starts to suck again.

What are the hard drives (how many, what kind, what is on each, what capacity, and how full)?

same here. 2019 macbook pro maxed out in every respect (64gb ram,

AMD Radeon Pro 5500M 8 GB, 2.4 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9)

 

It was absolutely fine on pp 2020 - didn't even need to proxy most of the time, even with 4k 10 bit footage. Now its as sluggish as anything even when I proxy. The timeline is ok if you scroll over it or press play (especially when proxied). However the problem is if you do a series of quick cuts, the whole system gets very sluggish & it's horrible to work with. I can see that it chews up my memory, and at it's worst will cause my computer to flash up a 'you've run out of memory' message. 

 

Rendering seems to be a bit quicker, but it prefer a system which performed faster and rendered slower. Always happy to take a tea break. 

 

I use after effects a great deal as well & the performance on this is greatly improved compared to old AE versions. In summary new premiere is absolutely terrible, after effects is pretty good. 

 

upgraded to the latest version of Monteray as I thought this might be the problem. It's not.

I have the same problem. It was fine few weeks ago until the lates update. I was able to the work by making the adobe premier window smaller. I hope they can fix it though. Not fun to work in smaller screen.
