Are there issues with any of your projects? Check the list of known issues to see if the issue is known. Here are some of the current known issues. Listed is the following known issue for 23.6

Known Issue: Poor playback performance in Macintosh M2 Studio or Mac Pro with multiple monitors.


Issue: A customer with a Macintosh M2 Studio or Mac Pro with multiple monitors may experience poor playback performance.


Workaround: Enable Displays have separate Spaces in macOS System Settings > Desktop & Dock. Apple and Adobe are working on a permanent fix for this issue.


Known Issue: The export function fails when trying to publish media directly from Premiere Pro to Twitter (X).


Issue: When a user attempts to publish media directly from Premiere Pro to Twitter (X), the export function fails, given recent changes at Twitter (X) and their APIs.


Workaround: This issue will be fixed in an upcoming release. In older versions, you'll need to export media locally and publish through Twitter (X).


Prevent Known Crash Issues:

  • On macOS versions before 13 (Ventura), Premiere Pro crashes at startup: The first time Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Media Encoder are launched after installing on older macOS operating systems (earlier than macOS 13 Ventura), a message stating Display surface initialization failed is presented, and the application then crashes. This failure will not happen again in subsequent launches of each application. Apple resolved this issue in macOS 13.
  • Windows: We recommend that Windows users download and use NVIDIA drivers (version 531.41 or higher). This will resolve any crashing issues that August have been present with older drivers. For more information, see the NVIDIA documentation.


If you need assistance addressing any of these known issues, please create a new post. The community will assist you.


NEW! Troubleshooting using "Safe Mode": You can now press any key on launch to perform key troubleshooting steps from the new Reset Options dialog box (sometimes referred to as "Safe Mode"), like resetting preferences, removing media cache, reset plug-in loading cache, and temporarily disabling third-party plug-ins. It's a great first step in triaging your own issues related to Premiere Pro.


Bug fixes in the release are listed here. Thanks to the team, who provided an extensive list of those issues that are fixed.
