Massive slow-down when inputting lots of text into Essential Graphics rolling title

Hi there,

 

We're working with a client to put together a large list of names in a rolling credits over a simple JPEG image. The list of names, coming from a 17 page word doc, has been inserted into Premiere's essential graphics system. With such a long document, the program becomes highly unstable and largely unusable when making minor changes to formatting and placement of text.

Does anyone have any experience getting the program to pick up the speed a bit when working with such a large amount of text in Essential Graphics? This seems like it should be a simple thing to render easily while remaining editable, but I'm looking at delays of around 5-6 seconds after a single click on a character, thus making any changes to a document this size a monumental waste of time. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

My hardware is as follows:
iMac Pro (2017)

Processor: 3.2 GHz Intel Xeon W

Memory: 32 GB 2666 DDR4

Graphics: Radeon Pro Vega 56 8GB

Error or problem, Freeze or hang, Performance, User interface or workspaces

What is the hard drive etups (how many, what kind, what is on each, and how full)?

I've got a 1TB SSD that came with the iMac, as well as a 4TB G-Drive connected via USB3.0, neither of which are past 50% capacity.

I just moved the project off the 4TB onto my 1TB SSD and it didn't seem to accelerate the program at all.

I've been having this exact same problem for every video - I like to do a credit roll at the end of a video with the names of each of the 2000 Patreons we have.  Once I put in the credits Premiere Pro becomes so laggy it's completely unusable.  This problem has followed me across several computers - currently on a AMD 3900xt 32GB ram and NVidia 2070 Super, all storage NVME.  The computer is fast as heck; this is just ridiculous.  How is it that almost no one else is complaining about this?

@ScribbleJAgreed - we've had more videos that we have produced lately that have required a large credit scroll and Premiere has been absolutely awful to work in once we input a large amount of text. I've heard that it gets easier to use if you use the Legacy Title editor but I haven't tapped into it. To speed things up on my end, I do all of my title and design work for the credits in Illustrator then copy them into Premiere. If I need to make changes, I have been completely deleting the Premiere layer and recopying any changes made in Illustrator.

 

Let me know if you have any luck potentially using the Legacy Title editor - it's a little ironic that the old system apparently works way better but it is what it is. A bit disappointed that I haven't had any further follow up on this issue but thanks for bring it back up.

I've been doing these for long enough that the legacy title editor was the only option when I started and it's also a bother to use but I love the tip about doing it in Illustrator or Photoshop like mgrenadier says below.  I'll try either or both of those next time!  Thank you so much for the reply and ideas.

gotta say I always build my title roll in photoshop and then bring the psd file into premiere and keyframe the motion.  You'll often have to adjust the speed of the roll so the movement is smooth, but not a heavy load for the system to deal with.

This is happening to me too, anytime I add any text in Premiere. Whether that's a new text box, subtitles, etc. Make one change, literally change a character or shorten the length of the title in the sequence for instance, and I have to wait for the rainbow spinny wheel, save it, and wait again. It's slowing down my workflow immensely and has been happening with multiple projects since I first noticed it in the fall of 2020.

Might be smarter to start a new thread. If you start a new thread.  Post here with a link to the new thread.  but minimally, please tell us your system specs: OS version, Premiere version, amount of RAM, Hardware specs including graphics card and source properties and sequence settings.   You say you've started noticing this in the fall of 2020.  Had you done an premiere update recently?  Were you working on a project started in an earlier version of premiere?   Are you still working in the same version of Premiere?  You might try creating a new premiere project and importing the project you were working on rather than actually opening it.

Lots more questions to ask, but let's get your system info first...

Happening to me as well,  adding a somewhat long credit roll to a film and it's gotten frustratingly unusable. Literally writing this as the program tries to calculate me adding a SPACE . Addding a word via copy-paste took (i timed) about 4 and a half min. I mean it's not some crazy motion effect, and is a actually neat feature in theory, but currently unusable.

 

Using:

Dell G5 15 se

Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 4800H 2.90 Ghz
RAM: 16G

 

Thanks for the workarounds suggested here, but here's hoping that this feature can be addressed by adobe

Premiere v15.2

you haven't told us what graphics card you have in your system and your source properties and sequence settings.  Post back if you need help learning how to find out this info

https://helpx.adobe.com/nl/premiere-pro/system-requirements.html

If things were working properly in an earlier version of Premiere, revert to that version.  Software updates usually make greater demands on your system hardware and it's unlikely that a future update will reduce the hardware requirements.

16 gigs is not a lot of RAM particularly if you're working with 4k or higher material.  

And as I said in an earlier post, consider building your credit roll in photoshop and then importing it into premiere and animating it in premiere.
