This is the firts time I am seeking help from fellow experts.
Premiere Pro starts lagging in a few minutes, irrespective of number of layers or effects, be it heavy or light project. The timeline stutters and each command takes about 1-2 secs to execute, any simple command too like go to in, next/previous cut, stop.
Many months. Had assembled the system in Oct 2019 and it was fine other than normal lag when using 4k. Now it lags even while scrubbing a Zoom recording footage without any edits.
Processor-i7 8700k, RAM-32GB Trident Z RGB(replaced last week), C Drive: Samsung 970 Evo Plus (replaced last month), GPU-1060 3 GB, B360M Gaming Motherboard...
I replaced my M.2 (boot and application drive) last week of December
Replaced RAM from 16 GB to 32 GB (last week)
Reinstalled OS (by default while changing the M.2)
Kept the system/cabinet open for air to pass
Updated all drivers
Windows 10 is updated - using an OEM Windows 10 license.
Really cannot understand and request some expert advice/help on it please please...

Can anyone pl help identify the reason for it, strangely every time I restart Premiere Pro it works smoothly for a minute or so and then suddenly starts lagging again
This is a software bug of the new version. Nothing can be done here. It all depends on the engineers when they finally fix this oversight, which has been going on since 2022. My advice is to switch to DaVinci and you will find out the level of the software and how they treat the product there. I'm happy
Thank you for your advice, tired of consulting hardware and software experts - was on the verge of changing the Motherboard and GPU next to resolve - but I guess its better to resort to 'Resolve' to resolve it... thanks
Sorry for the frustration. I wager that the media you are using is H.264 and may have a variable frame rate. If this is the case, your computer is not outfitted with the components for smooth operation with that format (especially with 4K footage). My advice is to either transcode the footage to ProRes LT or create ProRes Proxy proxies. Let me know if you need help doing so.
Hi, as mentioned in my query, the sisue is NOT related to variable frame rates. Even with a single clip of 25fps Full HD at times the project lags. It works smoothly immediately after restarting Adobe Premiere Pro. Have formatted my OS, reinstalled Adobe Suite 3 times, changed the RAM entirely, all in a week - still the problem persists. This is purely a BUG IN PREMIERE PRO.
NOW STRANGELY - after a lot of experiments, I have noticed that the problem does not arise much if you are using the Default Workspace of Premiere Pro.
VERY STRANEG - SO PREMIERE PRO 'SCIENTISTS' NEED TO WORK ON THE BASICS OF IMPROVING AND MAINTAING THE BASIC AESTHETICS FIRST AND THEN THINK OF ADDING MORE TO THE SOFTWARE.
At this pace, I believe that Premiere Pro has started dying just what happened with FCP earlier - Fame to Dust in a few months.
If Adobe Engineers are reading this - please get your basic functionaries working smoothly within the application. Most users are facing some silly issues since last one year.
And YES - Da Vinci Resolve Ijust tried to learn and was surprised at the speed at which it reads data within the applciation. It is super smooth - I wish it was true for my Premiere Pro.
So the solution I discovered was in a BUG - which was TRY TO USE ONLY THE WORKSPACE PRESETS DEFINED BY ADOBE...
When I changed the user interface to suit my edit requirements, it was lagging and when I switched to the pre defined interface of for eg Editing it worked better
Still it is not as smooth as Resolve...
Adobe needs to work on reading the footage faster
