10 Ways to optimize performance in Premiere Pro

1. Change Playback Resolution

The great tip is to change playback resolution to 1/2, 1/4, or even more. You can do this in the lower right corner of your screen. Playback resolution exists to change the size of your footage.

2. High Quality Playback

By pressing the right mouse button on the playback you can disable the high quality playback function for smooth video playback. Click the Settings menu on the upper-right corner of the screen. Also, don't forget to disable your clips when you're not using them.

3. GPU Acceleration Rendering

To increase the speed of rendering, it's important to include a video card in the work.Open a File > Project settings > General, and select the item of the program and video card. GPU-accelerated computing is the employment of a graphics processing unit (GPU) along with a computer processing unit (CPU) in order to facilitate the playback of the average timeline in real time at high quality. You can playback GPU accelerated effects and transitions in real-time without rendering them.

4. RAM Settings

Adobe Premiere has the ability to select the amount of RAM(random access settings) that will be reversed for the program. Open Premiere Pro > Preferences > Memory and select how much RAM will be used for Adobe Premiere. Choose optimal characteristics for your version.

5. Clean Cache

To clean programs from unnecessary cache files, click Premiere Pro > Preferences > Media Cache. Now you can choose to delete the used media cache or delete all media cache files from the system.

6. Proxy Layers

To create a proxy layer, select the video we need and Right-Click > Proxy > Create Proxies. Choose the format QuickTime and press OK. After that, the Adobe Media Encoder program opens; it can be downloaded from the official Adobe website. At the end of the proxy creation, a green checkmark will appear next to the file. Returning to the Adobe Premiere, Toggle Proxies button turns the proxy on and off.

7. Partial Render

Rartial rendering helps us to split the rendering process into more manageable chunks. To run our render, we need to select the desired segment and open the sequence. This may take time, but would be really efficient. Or set In and Out timeline points and press Enter

8. Turning Off Effects

You can remove effects that you've applied to clips, or you can turn off the effects but retain their settings. We have a button that allows us to turn off all effects - find it in the playback window. Turning them off can significantly improve the quality of your playback in the program.

9. Lumetri Scopes

The Lumetri Scopes panel (Window > Lumetri Scopes) displays a set of resizable built-in video scopes: Vectorscopes, Histogram, Parade, and Waveform. These scopes help you evaluate and color-correct your clips. To display a scope, right-click in the Lumetri Scopes panel and select a scope from the drop-down list. Lumetry scopes window loads Adobe Premiere heavily. In order for the program to work faster, it's better to close this window when you're not working with color grading.

10. Update drivers

For the correct and fast operation of Adobe Premiere, do not forget to update the drivers on your computer. Make sure your device drivers are properly updated because it can also be a common reason for most optimization issues.
