I will admit that I have a lot of bloat on my machine so this may help other people who are experiencing startup crashes with 2022.
I found that CoreMelt plugins (they havent been used on my system for maybe 5 years) will crash Premiere Pro 2022 on MacOS on startup. So if you have coremelt, here's how to uninstall if you dont have the uninstaller around. https://support.coremelt.com/hc/en-gb/articles/229163687-How-do-I-uninstall-remove-CoreMelt-plugins

I should also note that I'm running Mac OS Monterey.
