The processing of thumbs at each opening of the project is really distressing. I would like to have the option to save these metadata at disk for faster start.

Hi All,

Sorry for the problem. We have added GPU support for thumbnails in the latest beta builds, and we believe thumbnails generation should be quicker and more efficient now. 

Please check out the latest beta build version from the creative cloud and let us know how it goes there.

You can download the latest Beta builds from Creative Cloud --> Beta apps

If you still face this issue, please share your project files(&med

I thought I will do one more project before switch to DaVinci, but this has been a mistake. It's ridicolous how long media takes to be ready for editing. My computer ressources are close to 0% used and it looks like nothing is happening. A snail is faster at this point. It really kills the creative mood.

I already know many pro editors who avoid Premiere Pro for big projects because of such issues.

Maybe we just need to cancel our subscriptions and resorting to the P word.

I really started to notice today how much time I waste waiting on thumbnails to generate.

C'mon Adobe, this is a core feature. At least set the status to Under Review.

Thanks for your attention to this problem. This sounds like a step in the right direction, but will the fix also include a cache of thumbnails so that they only need to be generated once?

I just downloaded the Beta build today, and didn't see any significant difference, and I have a pretty strong PC, latest build per Puget Systems specifications. Maybe even a little slower thumbnail generation.

PC is fully updated, so nothing wrong there.

 

Why can't you just save the thumbnails, since you are generating them in the first place?

You are generating the peak files for instance and store them, why can't you do the same with thumbnails?

 

I tried out DaVinci the other day and it really has huge differences in many areas, while Premiere is lagging behind.

Speedwise also, the difference is quite massive.

Thank you for working on this, I think what people want is a cache.

Really glad you are working on speeding up the process but it's not really the time it takes, it's that it needs repeating - usually when a director is sat beside me and i'm looking for a clip in a huge bin of cutaway!

I just tested it and thumbnails are rendering much faster.  It's nice to see critical workflow issue is finally being worked on.  Thank you!

 

Hopefully this solves the issue with stuttering/choppy playback when Pr renders thumbnails during playback as new clips coming into view in the Timeline.

 

As others have mentioned, thumbnail caching would be the ideal solution.

 

I noticed that the thumbnails on/off setting in the Project window's list view is now sticky, so it it's set to on or off, it will keep the same setting when reopening the project.  Thank you for this!

 

As for the rendering of thumbnails in the Project window and Timeline, why doesn't Pr render all thumbnails in the background, rathern than only once clips are brought into view?

Hello again,

 

Today Premiere beta received another update and still the previews are software generated...

I double checked by pressing Ctrl + Alt + F12, and cheching Importer.MPEG, all the frames are software generated.

 

I checked my settings again and didn't find anything out of place. I have an intel latest generation processor, a strong GPU, all updated to their latest drivers per manufacturer, windows 11 Pro are updated as well, GPU acceleration is enabled.

 

I have diabled GPU Scheduling though from windows because Premiere was buggy with it enabled.

 

Do I do something wrong, or is it something from your end?

I believe though that a thumbnail cache would be the best possible solution.
