So I've been editing 4k footage off the new Sony A7SIII with the XAVC-HS codec with 4:2:0 (not 4:2:2, that seems to be impossible to edit without proxies). Unfortunately I get various crashes with Premiere. First, when importing this footage into the project via drag and drop, the System crashes. When importing via menu file/import it works fine most of the time, but cosistently crashes when scrubbing through the timeline. The system becomes unresponsive until the fan blows heavy and then restarts.
System is a MacBook Pro 16" / 8-core Core i9 / 64GB RAM and Radeon Pro 5500M
running MacOS 10.15.7 and latest version of Premiere.
Any help would be much appreciated!

Hi there is there any resolution to this. I've been having the same issue for months now and can't seem to find any help anywhere. Premiere crashes each time I import or scrub through Sony A7siii H265 4:2:0 footage.
