Poor performance with Premiere Pro 24.1 file structure and multicam editing

I’m having multiple problems with Premiere Pro 24.1

I’m using a Mac Pro 3.2 16-Core Intel Xeon W 96 GB 2933 MHz DDR4 with AMD Radeon Pro Wr700X 16GB graphics card. My OS is Sonoma 14.2.1. I’m also using a Macbook Pro M1 with 32 gig ram.

One problem that I’m having is the file structure. Where After Effects looks at the project folder down to locate media (ProjectFolder/Media/…). Premiere Pro looks at the root folder down: (HardDrive/Project/Media…). The problem this causes is that now projects are not portable. I don’t remember this being the case in the past. I must relink the media and, unlike After Effects, I must go to each individual folder that contains media to relink. Some of the projects that I work on have multiple shots from multiple days all organized into different folders and still some files don’t show up. This also effects performance in that working on simple edits seems to take extra time (up to 5 seconds) to process.

The second problem, that I can articulate, is multicam editing. I have a project with 4 cameras. I’m already dealing with the above-mentioned problem but now as I edit and I duplicate my timeline to save my earlier work, it seems that causes simple actions like selecting a clip or moving the cursor to cause the spinning ball pause for something like 30 seconds!!!!!!  The only fix that I’ve come up with was to just import that timeline into a new project and start over. Right now, I have a project within a project withing a project up to like 8 times. This is frustrating. I suspect that it might have to do with file structure.

My last problem in very annoying. I’m working for a large corporation and my account is a team (?) account. What that means is that when I have a problem, I can’t get tech support. The policy of only handling support through and administrator. My administrator is some unknown person who either sits in Germany or India who has neither the time or the interest in being a go-between from tech support issues. (Not one person in my IT department knows who this is or even who to reach out to.) There really is no logical reason that this must be the policy. The person using the app is the one who knows what problems they’re having, not some random person in the organization.
