Each time I open Premiere Pro now, I get about 15 minutes of time editing before the screen goes black and starts flickering/freezing. I get the "unable to create image buffer" error message right before the screen goes black. I've tried many methods of fixing this problem, read many articles online, but so far the only answer i can find online to fix this error, is by using a different version of Premiere pro. I'm currently using the latest 2020 version of Premiere pro and do not want to switch versions since I'll lose my projects. Does anyone have a solution to this error?

Right now nobody can know anything about your situation because we don't know what your setup is. See Ann's link about information to provide.

It sounds like you might be running out of VRAM.

If you change versions you will not lose your projects, you may just need to use a tool to downgrade them.

Hi there Phillip,

 

Sorry about forgetting to add in my setup details! Im editing on the latest 14.4 version of Premiere Pro 2020. I have CUDA GPU acceleration being used on my project and am dealing with lots of lag, aswell as crashes happening every 15 minutes of being in my project with the most common errors popping up being "Frame substitution recursion attempt aborting after multiple attempts on file" and "Unable to create image buffer".
