I working with projects in an Adobe Production and every time I try and Open or Save a project, my RAM usage shoots up to 100GB (on a 72GB system) and Premiere hangs. It eventually opens/saves, every time, but usually after about 10 minutes of waiting.
This is happening on three different machines with three different copies of the project. I even took all the media offline and just opened one of the projects, and the issue still occurs.
We have gone through the usual troubleshooting steps already.
After tons of testing, I discovered there are instances of clips with hundreds of copies of the same marker that I imagine weren't made by an editor. I deleted every marker on every clip, and the core issue goes away. The project saves without hanging or spiking the RAM.
However, when I close and re-open the saved project, the markers come back, and so does the problem!
I feel like I've got it to a place where an Adobe Engineer can take a look at it. Is there anyone available to take my case? Here's a video of the problem in action...
