Hey all, the title pretty much sums up the issue I'm having.
Not sure what kind of screwed-up update I blindly installed (whether it be Adobe, Windows, etc), but as of the last few days, I've seen my rendering time for a 2 MINUTE social video go from under 2 minutes to 30 minutes. It's ridiculous.
For context, I'm working with 10bit 4:2:2 4K footage on a 1080p timeline. Most clips generally scaled down to 50% with leeway for resizing. This is my typical workflow. Only change up for this particular piece is a title Mogrt, and a Subtitle track (auto-captioned, and burned into video). Even then, I disabled both Mogrt/caption elements to isolate the issue, and with JUST the footage and audio, I'm still getting a 25+ minute render. For 2 minutes of video.
Premiere Pro (22.1.2)
OS: Windows 10
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5950x
GPU: AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT
RAM: 64 GBs
Storage 1: Samsung 980 PRO NVMe 2TB 4.0
Storage 2: (Media Cache Files & Database) Samsung 970 Evo Plus NVMe 1TB
Hardware Encoding (OpenCL) is enabled, but during renders Premiere uses 0-2% of my GPU, and anywhere between 40-60% CPU. Almost For what it's worth, prior to this issue, I'd notice Premiere utilizng almost 100% of my CPUs resources, but in turn, I was able to crank out renders incredibly quick.
Could it be the latest Premiere update? Or a Windows thing? Working on a deadline with multiple deliverables and it's costing time to render out what should be simple renders.
Any input is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
