I just set up Premiere on a clean M1 Mac Studio.
Editing lightly-compressed h.264 footage in a timline lags 3-5 seconds scrubbing and hitting play.
Here is a video of clicking around the timeline in Premire Pro showing a significan lag
Here is me skipping around inside the same video on the same M1 Mac, this time in QuickTime Player. Skipping through the file to access random frames is instantaneous:
Here I am skipping around the same file in KDENlive on generic Linux hardware. Performance is also near-instantaneous:
Why is Adobe performance on the latest Mac harware inferior to free/Linux software on old hardware?
Will this be fixed soon?
Is this better on Wintel? I have 10 days to return my hardware purchase.
Can you download the Premiere Pro Beta and test the performance there? There were some recent updates for M1 there. Let us know!
Can confirm this appears to be fixed in the Beta. So much better.
With the Beta version of Premiere, I'm seeing performance much more in line with what I expected.
Thanks for the tip!
