Hi,I used to stick to h.264 for realiability but have started testing HVEC/h.265 to conserve space on my drive. The issue I'm getting with it is that the viewing experience is not smooth.When I open the exported video, it plays fine in Quicktime or VLC, but if I scrub forward to any point in the video, it takes 4-10 seconds for the video to start playing normally from there.I assume its not the issue of my computer because I have the newest macbook pro, and probably not a video player issue because I tested two.Is there a way I can view exported HVEC videos without any lag when scrubbing and just have a good viewing experience overall?My computer:Model Name: MacBook ProChip: Apple M1 ProTotal Number of Cores: 10 (8 performance and 2 efficiency)Memory: 16 GBSystem Firmware Version: 7429.61.2GPU Total Number of Cores: 16Premiere 23.1.0Quicktime 10.5VLC 188.8.131.52
H.265 is highly compressed, which is problematic for Premiere .
Premiere is more comfortable with an edit friendly codec such as Prores but they take up a lot of drive space.
I suggest you get a bigger drive.
