I have recently updated my Premiere Pro version to the newest one and discovered the new caption tool.
I started working with it and I realized that it is extremely laggy and slow. Every time I put a new caption or change a style, it almost feels like I need to way 30 seconds to 1 minute until the changes are processed and I can continue working. And this can become extremely tedious if there are a lot of captions to do for a longer piece of content.
I have heard different feedback on working with this tool, where some people really like it and others find it as buggy as I do.
My PC specs are also pretty good, this is not something that should slow down my work process.
Maybe there are some settings I am using incorrectly? I am not really sure what is the problem.
Can anyone help? 🙂
This is not normal behavior for most users. But there are other reports of slow performance on editing or playback or freezes. I don't think anyone with the issue reported back as to whether there was any correlation between slow playback and number of captions, length of timeline, or complexity of assets.
I suspect that you have, but if not, test with a new project. I had an unrelated issue and staff could not reproduce the bug I reported unless they used my project file. I reset preferences and reset the captions workspace - all was well.
I would also do the clear the cache routine that is recommended anytime there is a new version.
If the issue persists, file a bug report.
This happens basically in every composition that I try to use the caption tool, most of them are also extremely simple.
What happens is how you describe that other people have issues with it: "But there are other reports of slow performance on editing or playback or freezes." - sounds extremely similar to what happens in my composition.
Likewise I am experiencing super slow/laggy performance (close to unusable).
I am on a fast PC.
Have cleared Cache, restarted etc.
Am working on Proxy files, playback quality is at 1/4.
Still now good 😞
v15.4.0 Build 47
I have the same issue. Extremely laggy when I add a srt file. I have a solid GPU and other specs, but holy hell it's sooooo slow.
It has been difficult for me to replicate these problems, and some users reported that recent updates improved performance.
What version of PR are you running? How long is the sequence? How many captions in the SRT?
How long is your sequence? I have issues with really long sequences, like my 3-hour rough cut. I hope you can get this addressed, but in the meantime, try shorter sequences, then join them later.
Have you tried resetting preferences and/or reseting your workspace?
Reset your preferences by holding shift+alt (or option) when you launch Premiere
