I've used premiere pro in the past, I'm currently using the latest version (2022) and I can't get it to ingest clips or render proxies properly for the life of me.
The clips preview fine in every panel, until I bring them to the timeline, at which point they freeze up. The clips themselves are a red colour.
I have no idea what I'm doing wrong, I've edited plenty of times in previous version with this computer, and never had this issue.
Thanks for the reply, I didn't get a notification until recently.

Do you see red where there should be picture in the Source panel or Program panel with a message along the lines of "media pending"? If so, what are the source clip setting (file format, compression type, frame size, frame rate, etc.)? Try transcoding at least one clip to a format that Premiere Pro supports for Smart Rendering (https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/using/smart-rendering.html) and see if that works as expected.
Do you see a red line above the clips in the Timeline? If the CODEC of your source footage does not match the CODEC of your Sequence Video Preview settings, you'll get yellow and maybe red, even in a cuts-only Sequence.
While you're trying to figure this out, you can use Creative Cloud Desktop to install "Other versions", picking an older version or Premiere Pro from the list it presents.
I sometimes get clips in yellow, but the program is hanging constantly.
This happens regardless of whether I ingest the clip, play it from proxies, or niether.
And this is for 3 mp4 2 minute clips that are 70mb each. We're not talking overwhelming power here.
I will try smart rendering and get back to you.
With smart rendering set up correctly, you will see no color above the clips and as long as you are working from fast storage will have smooth playback.
