Horrifically Slow Premier CC 2019
on Oct 12, 2019 at 8:53:09 pm

Trying to Online a 50 minute 4k show using Premier but every key stroke or menu click involved a spinning beach ball for around 8 seconds.

Running on a MacBook Pro 2018 with a G-speed 8tb Thunderbolt 3 drive.

The Project is .mxf

Ive been using Premier with 4k footage as well as Resolve with no issues on a previous project.

Really struggling but have done a lot of research. The project contains mixed resolution jpegs, tiff, png's - is this what's slowing me down? is it the MFX's? Its impossible to work like this.

mxf is pretty broad. What video codec is in those mxf files? And if you have extra large still image files, those can slow the system as well. Any effects on your 4k footage?

Thanks Todd - Footage was shot on an F7.

Would Pro Res be more friendly?

When the project gets to me its also lost all the LUTs that were applied post ingest which is obviously really screwing up any grading the offline editor has applied...(Ive put the LUT in the right place and its showing up in looks....

Did you say FX? There's loads...

Im used to working on MC and Resolve. I'm OK on Premier but I'm shocked with how slow its running.

So they are XAVC in a MXF? I'm just trying to figure out the video codec. h.264 is really processor intensive - especially at 4k. I don't use XAVC or an F7 - but I think that it uses a form of h.264, you can correct me if I'm wrong. But you can use MediInfo app to find out what the codec is - or VLC should even tell you. But, yes, in the instance of h.264, ProRes or DNx are better options for editing. Then if you have a lot of effects on top of it, and a number of large still images, you will slow down the processing considerably on any system. Adobe/FC/AVID - but I'm guessing Resolve as well...

Most likely you're working with H264 mxf files. Create Cineform HD proxies and your system performance should increase dramatically.
