Premiere Pro Community Digest
Hey there Premiere Pro Community! Here are your community highlights for September 2020!
Premiere Pro 2020 (14.4) was launched on September 15, 2020. In this release, there are continued stability improvements, improved performance, and even a few new features. The September release is one that has a bit to offer for everyone. Good stuff. For details, see this article.
To recap, the release included 3 new key features:
Adobe Video World: Premiere Pro masters taught courses at Adobe Video World, from September 12-17. Nick Hauruz, Rich Harrington, Luisa Winters, Abba Shaprio, Jarle Leirpol, and Jeff Greenberg were the featured Premiere Pro presenters. It was the first time the conference has ever been held virtually.

Featured ACP - R. Neil Haugen
Maybe you've noticed him helping others around the forum. Maybe he's helped you! Neil has been around the community for years now. I just wanted to give him a tremendous amount of credit for giving so much of his time assisting others, especially new editors.
First of all, who is Neil Haugen? Browsing Neil's profile page, you can see that Neil is a pro photographer with years of experience. Neil is very tuned into providing the best possible image for his clients, so naturally, color correction and color grading skills carried over quite well into the video realm.
Neil is a wellspring of knowledge when it comes to color. Neil was one of the original gunslingers when Iridas SpeedGrade was first ported over to Adobe. Neil currently writes and contributes content for Mixing Light, well-known in the colorists realm.
Motion graphics and titles is also an interest of Neil's and loves to help others with those things in the Essential Graphics panel. Personally, I am so glad Neil has taken this on as the feature set is fairly dense and requires a good deal of experience to master it. Neil has created this neat set of keyboard shortcuts you may find useful here.
Check out Neil's website for more helpful articles about Premiere Pro and color in the video realm here. This small article only scratches the surface for all Neil has done for the Premiere Pro community. Once again, thank you Neil, for all your help!
I edit for a living so it is frustrating that any change in my timeline on Premiere Pro, it lags. I have to constantly wait a few seconds with each change. Obviously, this isn't sustainable so any help would be REALLY appreciated. I have followed every youtube tutorial on the settings inside the software to make it run fast and nothing has helped. i have lots of ram space too
Sorry to hear that. Think we need a lot more info to help, otherwise, we can only give general advice and will simply make assumptions. What we need: OS, system info - like CPU, GPU, RAM, additional drives for media, and the type of media you are using. You can give us those in a reply. Include screenshots. Embed imges using the tools in the toolbar. Do not attach images.

Otherwise, you might be having performance problems because of the following potential issues:
With that, you can start troubleshooting by looking at each of these potential blocking points for smooth performance. Usually checking the first two of these can solve most problems. Let us know what's going on in more detail and we can probably assist. Hope we can help.
Great to see Neil's efforts being recognised.
What can I say, Neil and I have become good friends over the course of a few years amd have shared wonderful experiences together between continents.
He is a truly anazing and gentle soul with a dedication to his work that has to be seen to be believed.
It was an absolute pleasure collaborating witn him on ur "N&M" session a while back and also working on solutions for Team Projects behind the scenes.
I am really pleased to see he has got some recognition and in my opinion he deserves a whole lot more from Adobe who he has sacrificed so much of his time for.
An amazing man with a heart of gold...enough said
