Dear community, 

 

Hi. I currently use many of Adobe products for my personal and business work. 

I spend the most time with Premiere Pro (PP) and Media Encoder (ME), as a video maker. 

 

Recently, I have updated my PP for 14.4 version, and the same version for the ME. 

I found out an issue that my encoding time significantly increases. 

And there is a color LUT issue as well. Some LUTs slows the video preview, like choppy.

I will try to be as detail as possible. I am appreciated with your patient. 

So those reasons above, I upgraded my CPU, motherboard, and RAM. 

 

Now, my PC is--

i7-10700K Comet Lake

64GB Ram

NVIDIA GTX 1080 

NVME M.2 SSD

Windows 10 Pro

 

I was so happy, and tried the Premiere Pro again.

Well, still slow encoding time. 

Video I tested was:

 

Recorded in Sony A7M3, 4K 30P, Cine4

PP Sequence was 1080P 23.976.

Exported in PP Preset H.264 Youtube 1080P, and I downgraded the bit rate from 16 to 8. 

The expected file size is about 340MB. Video length is 5:27

Only 1 sound track, simple cut-edit with no special transitions, LUTs, etc. 

 

The estimated encoding time was about 13 minutes. It actually took 12 minutes with my iPhone stopwatch.

It is long, right? 

I tried both CUDA encoding and the Software encoding. There was pretty much no difference in encoding time. 

I will tell you what, the ME does the same. 

Therefore, I remove PP 14.4 version from my PC and installed 14.2 version that I previsouly used. 

That was my last idea, after spent a lot of time researching, trying Intel Quicksync, etc. 

Exact same project, and the estimate time remaining was 1 minute and 33 seconds with CUDA! 

I tried the software encoding. It took 2 mintues and 13 seconds!!!

I have no idea what is going on. 

The LUT issue I mentioned earlier, was solved. No choppy or slow preview with certain LUTs in 14.2 version. Nice and smooth. 

I reinstalled the 14.4 version to make sure.

And it was slow like a turtle. Removed from my PC again. 

Now, I am using Premiere Pro 14.3 version. I tested it and it is very fast like 14.2 version. 

14.4 version has significantly low CPU usage during the encoding. Some people say it is normal, but about 16% CPU usage and 2% GPU usage are not normal. 

With PP 14.2 version, CPU usage was 70% and GPU usage was 60%. They tried to finish their job ASAP. 

What makes these differences? The only thing I did was remove 14.4 version and installed 14.2, 14.3 version. 

I am very affraid that if someday Adobe discontinues to support older versions. Then I will get stuck in slow encoding time and choppy video previews with my favorite color LUTs. 

I can upload my test results (I screen shot them) here upon request...

 

Thank you for reading.
