Using windows 10 on a 16gb of Ram, NVIDIA Geforce 2070 graphics card, 1tb of Harddrive, 500gb of ssd, Intel i7 processor. Whenever I go to add or edit a motion graphic layer that has been pre-made the whole program slows down and then crashes. This has been happening frequently in the last few weeks. I have the most up to date grapics card drivers and version of premiere. The processor driver is up to date. I wonder if it is something to do with the settings on Premiere or where I store the Adobe files on my PC. Any help would be appreciated. A bloke can only take so much!
Mogrts can at times require some oomph from the system. Especially with multiple animations and many layers, they can start requiring a lot of load time & RAM ... and 16GB of RAM may not be enough.
What is each drive you list used for? Which is the OS, of course, but also where are your cache/preview files and media files? On most systems, having this broken out so the OS/programs are on one SSD, the cache/previews on another FAST internal SSD, the media/project files on a good internal SSD or spinner with lots of rooms can work.
