right now I'm heavily struggling to edit a video in Adobe Premiere.
Since the new Update "Big Sur" is out, Premiere acts extremely laggy in its Preview window, and pausing the video takes pretty long, even though my iMacs CPU inactivity scale is at around 92%. Ram is pretty constantly at 2,9 gb of 8 gb.
Does anyone of you have a similar problem or is it only with me?
thanks for your quick response.
Unfortunately, the problem is still existing...
You must retrograde back to Catalina or (depending on the age of your Mac) even Mojave until the apps become certified compatible.
How can I do that?
Unfortunately, there is no choice but to go "nuclear." As in wipe out all traces of the Big Sur installation and install an older version of OSX from scratch. However, you will not be able to do that if your Mac already shipped with Big Sur pre-installed. In that case, you will have to wait for Adobe to certify Premiere Pro as compatible and supported for Big Sur. This will not come until version 15, whose release has been delayed.
Likewise, there is no "2021" version of Premiere Pro at this time. The current 14.5 version is just another point release of the 2020 version.
Quick note for anyone googling that lead them here. I wasn't prepared to go "nuclear" and roll back Big Sur, so I found another way.
If you open Creative Cloud, find the 'Beta apps' section under Categories and install the Premiere Beta. It's a beta and might have some bugs (none that I found yet), but it fixes whatever this is in Big Sur. I'm personally okay with using the beta, for those that can't, at least you know it's in the works for next release, though I have no idea when this beta will go live.
Can't edit my previous, phew. Just wanted to say the beta is for v14.8, so this will be a point release fix at some point. We won't need to wait until v15, etc.
Yet we must continue to pay for the service whilst we wait for the release?
Hi E.A Enterprises,
I've had a call with Adobe yesterday and they gave me a refund for the elapsed time.
Maybe, you're also able to get your money back.
I have exactly the same Problem. I run a 10 Core iMac Pro and Premiere Pro was fast, smooth and easily usable with 5.2 K Apple Prores RAW and 6.2K CinemaDNG from a DJI Inspire 2. Now it is sloppy, and stutters for 1-2 seconds in the timeline.
Do I really have to roll back to Catalina or is there a Premiere Pro Beta? The same by the way for Lightroom CC. It got slower with Big Sur. In Catalina it was a blast to use.
I updated my installation to 14.8 (non-beta), and it still lagged. Then I installed the beta version and it still seemed to lag. Does anyone have a fix for this? It has been several months since Big Sur was released.
Did you have any luck getting your Premiere Pro working better? I am having the same problem.
so right now it seems like my Premiere is bettering itself, even though I didn't do anything special besides keeping my version updated. Things like skipping for- and backward on the timeline or rendering don't take as long as before and everything seems more fluent in general. I don't think, that we're fully back on track yet, but seems like Adobe is on a good way to fix their issues with Premiere on Big Sur. At least, that's what's going on with me
