Any time I'm working with footage (usually 4-6 hours) on Premiere Rush on iOS (iPad Pro 11 inch 1st gen) the preview freezes after a cut til I either close the app and open it quickly (not force close just normal close) or if I readjust the window. I think the cache needs to be refreshed after each cut so the frames don't freeze and get sticky.
This device originally had iOS 12 on it. What operating system are you running?And how much free space is on your device?
How long are the video clips you are editing? What happens if you open a new project and you add just a couple of photos to your timeline? Does the program still crash?
The device currently has the latest version of iOS 13. It has 256 GB of storage. As stated in the original post, the footage I'm working with is around 4-6 hours (this specific one being 4:21:xx) . The program doesn't "crash" but when playing back, the preview is frozen. When importing measly photos and videos it works perfectly fine because there's nothing taxing. I've had this issue since day 1 release of Rush. Of course as you know, to import a video as long as 4 hours, you need to start a project on PC, allow it to create the optimized media, then upload it for it to be downloaded. I do that. The vidoe renders perfectly fine on PC and Mac with 0 issues whatsoever. The only issue is that during playback, the preview window will consistently freeze.
I'm asking for you to clarify your project size because you sound like you're seeing each video clip you're adding is 4-6 hours long. Which I don't think is the case. But even if you're working on a 4-6 hour long project made of short clips -- that would be a challenge for my desktop, depending on the specs of that video.
Have you considered working on a shorter project -- say 5-10 minutes -- in order to ensure you have a workable workflow before taking on a project longer than "Lawrence of Arabia"?
I dont' mean that to sound cynical. I'm just suggesting that it's easier to work the bugs out when you're not lugging around quite so much data.
I completely understand, sorry if I seemed hostile.
I've confirmed that media all the way up to 1 hour long (usually) works perfectly fine. I put the *usually* in there because around 45+ minutes is when I start to see the issue most predominantly, but it's not necessarily consistent.
The original media size is 11.2 GB. Premiere Rush, after "optimization" increased the file, which was uploaded to Adobe Cloud, to 18.8 GB, which is what the iPad Pro is working with.
If the program works fine when editing video under an hour, I'd say that a 4-6 hour project is just too much for your hardware to handle. In my opinion anyway. Maybe someone else has had a different experience.
Does your movie really need to be 6 hours long? Wouldn't it be more watchable is several short movies?
It's a 4-6 hour gameplay that I cut down to about 10 minutes to then transfer into Premiere Pro. I figured out how to get it to work, I just need to wait a REALLY long time for it to function properly, watching Hulu in PiP has helped the time go by quicker 🙂
