Bad optimization when using more than 1 monitor.

Hi guys, I've been using premiere for a long long time, and now I realized something that blowed my mind, it turn out that when I changed the space work by default and then as you know premiere, uses one monitor.

 

And I don't know how but I could feel it more fluent, so I decided to go to a part of the proyect I couldn't render In real time due the effects I had, but as soon I change the work space WOW!!! I could.

 

I couldn't believe it.

 

My problem is I need 3 monitors to edit, I can't just use one, could you help me and tell me what should I have to do in order to have a real good work flow with 3 monitors.

 

I use Main for full time line, the right one, for effects, monitor, preview, and some more, and the top one, for library and some other stuff. 

 

 

I hope I can find a solution because I really felt the smoothness and now I can't deal with this situation.

 

Thanks!!!

Try resetting the preferences:

If that doesn't work, try resetting the Workspaces:
Reset a workspace
Reset the current workspace to return to its original, saved layout of panels.
1. Do one of the following:
• Click the Workspace menu icon and select Reset to Saved Layout.
• Choose Window > Workspace > Reset to Saved Layout.
from here:

If that doesn’t work, try updating or rolling back your graphics driver directly from the video card manufacturer’s site. If NVIDIA, do a clean installation of the latest Studio Driver (NOT the Game Driver).

If that doesn't work, try creating a new project and import the old one into it.

The solution is always spend more money. Playback using dedicated hardware is the proper solution.
For as little as 150 dollars using the blackmagic monitor adapter. You can try the NDI Launcher virtual monitor as well if you have extra computers laying around.

Good comments in the other posts, by the way. I'll add this.

 

Pr has ancient monitor usage practices, and besides that, gets cranky if you don't play by the unstated Rules of the app.

 

It selects screen space not by monitor used, but by relative pixel location from 0/0. Which is the upper left pixel of the UI main screen. I've argued for it to recognize screens as screen for years ... ah well.

 

Premiere expects it's "program" window, the one with the menu bar, to be on the UI main screen.

 

If the whole app is on a second screen, that's ok. But move the app's main window to another screen, and setup panel groups on another monitor ... unhappiness will likely result.

 

Premiere expects the Program monitor to be on the same panel group and screen as the Program Menu Bar.

 

So if you move the Program monitor to a panel group outside the one with the app's menu bar, unhappiness may result.

 

Premiere gets cranky if a single pixel line of a panel group on monitor X shows up on the edge of monitor Y.

 

And this one, you might not even see! So you have to make sure your panel groups on secondary monitors do NOT "bleed" over onto a different monitor. I do all mine with a slight border of my monitor showing around them.
