Running apps like Spotify and browsers like Chrome rob your GPU of its power. I advise you to avoid running them while editing, particularly if you are having performance problems.
I advise users to get an iPad or use their phone hooked up to some speakers to listen to music if you must.....Run only Premiere Pro when editing.
In the same respect, reboot the computer before editing, and at midday to refresh RAM. Just a reminder that needs to be said once in awhile since so many editors are listening to music while editing.
So now you know: Spotify hurts Premiere Pro performance, as does Chrome and other GPU hungry browsers. So, I'm not telling you to avoid music during some editing tasks, or lose the ability to browse the web during your editing sessions, I'm just suggesting to use an alternate device if you want the max performance from your computer while editing with Premiere Pro.
A reminder to the editing community that you must not think of Premiere Pro as "just another app," but as an editing system which requires the full capacity of your hardware working in concert with it for best possible performance. That said, running other apps while you are running Premiere Pro will hurt preview rendering, playback, UI snappiness, color grading performance, GPU real time effects performance, exporting performance and your overall user experience.
Different programs may interfere with each other. So it's better to not run Spotify or other apps when editing. Or you can firstly use AudFree Spotify Converter to download Spotify tracks from the app directly and then use a media player to play it, which doesn't interfere with the Adobe when editing. But the best way could be not to open the Spotify and other programs to avoid unexpected errors.
Thanks for your kind suggestion. For me, I found an alternative way to enjoy Spotify music during my editing. That is, use TunesKit Spotify Downloader to download Spotify songs as local files and then listen to them with a music player. In this way, it will never hurt my Adobe performance, and both work well.
How do you edit and listen to music? I simply can't. Maybe while I'm doing titles...
I'm with Kevin on this. can't imagine editing with music playing. but I've almost always got a browser open without issues. I'm not surfing while I'm editing, but if I'm rendering, absolutely... My phone beeps at me when an email or text comes in and when I have a moment, a switch to the browser and see if it's anything important. If you've got an underpowered machine, maybe you'll have a problem...
Therein lies a major problem: Decoding streaming music always eats up precious CPU cycles that could have been used for editing and rendering.
As for browsing the Web, I knew all along that there are currently no good choices among the major-branded browsers. Every one of the current browsers (and yes, that includes the new Microsoft Edge that comes with the latest versions of Windows 10) eat up GPU cycles to some extent, while the only one that doesn't (the old Internet Explorer 11) is no longer receiving security or bug fixes due to its EOL status. (IE11 still exists in current Windows 10 installations, but in a depreciated state.)
To avoid this issue, I usually download and listen to Spotify music offline. And to do that, it is needed to use tools like DRmare Music Converter for Spotify Mac, Tunepat Spotify Music Converter, etc. to help.
Agree. As I realize the Spotify hurts Premiere Pro performance, I never run the Spotify app when using PR so that to release the pressure of GPU. It is convenient to download Spotify songs by my AudKit tool, a kind of Spotify audio converter, then listen to Spotify songs without using the Spotify app.
It means that I are running as few programs as possible when using Premiere Pro. The proposal is a good one, but I played back the music in Spotify while recording it simultaneously in Adobe Audition. If I close the Spotify, I cannot use the Spotify songs in my clips.
Luckily, I used Macsome Spotify Downloader by accident. It can download Spotify music to .wav on computer locally. Then I can import the audio from Spotify to Premiere project.
