Why Am I Unable to Edit in PrPro Anymore?

Win 10,  i7-7700HQ CPU (7th gen), 32 gigs of RAM, 1T storage one-third filled... My Dell XPS 15 (9560) is barely five years old, I remember how easy it used to be to edit videos. Well, not anymore. My job requires me to create four 10-minute 'talking head' videos a month and edit Zoom interviews. I'm struggling with all of it: I can't edit nested sequences - the system stalls; playhead is jerky, endless buffering. Can't work with MOGRTs - same thing. Cant work multicam - same thing, and so on.

I've spent countless hours on the horn with support - updating drivers, clearing cache, installing/reinstalling stuff, messing about with settings - all to no avail. What am I missing? 

Is it simply that I'm paying $70 a month for inadequate software? Or is there a magic button somewhere?

Hi !

It sounds like your system might be running out of the required power to do everything on the fly - but fortunately there is a solution to this problem - which only requires a small change to the workflow. 

Instead of working on the original media directly, you can create Proxies directly within Premiere Pro. Decoding each frame in the video is a very demanding task for older systems - and working on highly compressed media like screen recordings requires your system to do the same work over

Hi !

It sounds like your system might be running out of the required power to do everything on the fly - but fortunately there is a solution to this problem - which only requires a small change to the workflow. 

Instead of working on the original media directly, you can create Proxies directly within Premiere Pro. Decoding each frame in the video is a very demanding task for older systems - and working on highly compressed media like screen recordings requires your system to do the same work over and over again. To free up resources the proxy media can use a less compressed codec lice ProRes - this means that your computer only has to do the decoding work once - and from there on can directly look up every frame from disk without doing any work.

This usually frees up enough resources for other creative work like a more complex sequence structure or adding more MOGRTs (which might also sometime be more efficient to pre-render if you dont intend to change them).

The same workflow is also used for the highest-end of media e.g. 8K 60fps footage to be able to use them in a produciton workflow without having to buy new hardware - but for your case you might be able to just free up enough resources by tuning your workflow.

 

Best regards,
