I can't even open a project file because it is hanging up on 'Locating Media.' I don't want to whine and complain but I spend more time troubleshooting then working on my projects. I am using a ryzen 5900x with a RTX3070 and Premiere Pro works fine when I can get it open.
is all your media on local drives? if not, that may be the source of your problem. working with media over a network or on the cloud can be problematic and should probably be avoided unless you're working with a solution designed for this workflow.
Yes they are all on local drives. Is there somewhere I can learn more about adobe dynamic linking and how to troubleshoot dynamic linking between the adobe products/apps? I feel I am spending an inordinate amount of time not able to work on my projects or trying to figure out why dynamic linking sometimes works and sometimes doesnt.
