Hello dear Adobe Support Community,
This isn't the first time I occure such a problem, I don't know how to fix it and this is pretty annoying:
Premiere Pro timeline is currently lagging through a specific sequence that I need to export soon for a client.
I don't know what happened really, I was just doing basic editing, speed ramping, nesting sequences. Working with a7III footages and Mavic 2 Pro h265 (with proxies generated) but suddenly after a few moves, I occure a lag that doesn't want to get off!
I've tried multiple things:
- Creating a new sequence / project and copy / paste the elementss from my initial sequence but looks like the lag is being paste with the elements.
- Change the workspace
- Restarting computer / Adobe, several times.
- Empty the media cache (by the way, I can only delete meda cache that are unused, the other option is transparent.
I am know hesitating to uninstall / reinstall Premiere Pro as I don't know what else to do to fix this bug. I'm afraid it's attached to my project.
I would love to look at automatic saves from my project to go back in time but I don't know why I can't see the automate save project next to the current one in a seperate folder as usually. I'm afraid there isn't but I looked into the seetings and the option was on, so I don't know why I can't find them.
Last point is to describe the bug:
When I press play on the sequence, everything looks normal and editable but at one point, I cannot move the cursor, it's stays where I pushed pause and then I can't move it anymore. Some function don't work for a moment such as muting/unmuting audio tracks and stuffs, selecting elements, etc. And after clicking everywhere, going into the settings for example, when I come back on the timeline, everything works again. There is something not working out somewhere and I don't know how to fix it.
It's really frutstating as I don't have a lot of time left to finish this project 😞

There is a record of my issue.
Thank you very much for your help
I think I will just uninstall/resintall premiere pro for now, I need to move on this
Hi Flow !
Did you try to delete that rush and add the same one again ? Is the problem still the same after you did that ?
What if you choose to add another shot instead of this one, same issue again ?
Also, did you try to nest the footage that is causing you issue ?
Another question, what if you remove all effects you are using on that clip, as well as the speed ramp you did ?
You can aslo check if the music is having some issue, what if you remove it ?
Hope this can help a bit ! And by the way, this might no be related to your pc
Thank you very much for your answer.
I just uninstall/reinstall Premiere, issue were still there.
I admit I didn't want to find out which rush was lagging as I really thought it was the whole timeline.
I think I just found out that I might have speed ramped one of the rush too much... I will try to keep edit now that I've changed this.
If everything works well, I'll tell all of you later!
Problem still occure. I don't know which footage makes my project lagging so much 😞
okay maybe you can try to allow more memory to the app into the Premiere Pro settings ?
Glad to hear that !
In my case, it happened that speed ramping was causing crazy issues for no reason. I wasn't able to preview any of my speed ramp without nesting my rush, and it was quit annoying.
Hope you find a solution, last thing I could say is maybe try to remove all effects and color correction you did to see what's up.
Bonne chance !
Thank you so much for your guidance, I was starting to freak out!! I'm stuck since two hours also I'm nearly at the end of the project.
There was an effect I really didn't want to delete which was, a slow motion in a nested sequence that I stabilised and nested again so I could make a position animation and nested it again for masking transition ahah.
I'm playing with the track since 5 min and it looks that the monster was there!
Glad I could help you.
Good luck with your project !
At present, there is an issue with nested audio that can cause strange behavior: delete nested audio or disable Show Audio Waveform.
I have been having this same exact issue for the past 3 days. There does not seem to be one specific thing that is causing it either. I have had it happen when adding a simple whoosh sound to my timeline, I've had it happen when adding an adjustment later, and I've had it happen when adding a simple push transition. This has never been a problem for me until 3 days ago. I've tried multiple different projects, editing all different kinds of footage. I've allowed more ram usage, cleared cache files completely, etc. Nothing has fixed the problem.
