Editing In 4K Crashes Premier Pro

Hello everyone, I edit loads of video and used to edit in 1080p 60FPS.

 

I now have a new Panasonic GH5 and started editing 4K 60FPS.

 

I upgraded PC Components and here is the full spec below.

 

CPU - i7 9700K (8 Cores) 

RAM - 32GB Vengeance LPX (2x 16GB)

GPU - RTX 2060

NVME M.2 1TB - SX8200 Pro (Scratch Disk)

NVME M.2 512GB - 600p Intel SSD (C Drive)

OS - Windows 10 64bit

 

Now, i'm no rocket scientist, but i'm pretty sure I shouldn't be having the issues im having when editing in 4K. 

Premier Pro is so laggy, especially when applying transitions to cuts. It can take upto 5 seconds to play when pressing play.

 

Then sometimes it just decides to crash!!

 

I have tried everything and now i convert everything via proxy and edit in low resolution, then export in 4K!!!!

 

But surely I shouldn't have to do that with the system I have?? Please help!

 

Paul

Hardware is only one side of the coin when editing. The other side is the media, and I think you're underestimating the effect it has. The type of codec you edit with has a massive impact on your editing performance (yes, even on a good computer). You're editing 4k, high framerate footage that's likely in an interframe codec like h264 or h265. I'm not surprised at all that you'd have playback issues. That's normal. Create proxies into an intermediate codec and work away.

 

Professional editors work with professional editing codecs-and if your media source isn't an intraframe editing codec to begin with, then you want to make it one.

"But surely I shouldn't have to do that with the system I have??" -- afraid so.
