Hey all -

Recently I have been experiencing severe lag issues when trying to run Premiere Pro 2020. I've tried multiple ways to troubleshoot this myself. The steps I took are below:

- Restarted computer (probably 20 times now)

- Did a factory reset on my Mac

- NVRAM reset

- Deleted and re-downloaded Premiere

- Deleted unused media cache files

- Factory reset on Premiere

The last attempt seemed to work yesterday but this morning, when trying to load up some projects, I'm having the same issues. What typically happens is I try to make any edit, open preferences, really anything, and I get the spinning wheel of death. When I close Premiere it causes all other apps on my computer to run slow and if I try to open up Premiere again the icon just bounces.

I'm using a 2017 iMac Pro / 3.2 HGz 8-Core Intel Xeon W / 64GB 2666 MHz DDR4 / Radeon Pro Vega 64 16GB

 

Thanks!
