Optimazing perf for Premiere Pro

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP



So i started working with Premiere Pro(noob with the program) editing short vidoes (~30) nothing fancy, not many effects etc

And playback is terrible while editing to the point where it feels something is off. Maybe somebody can give advice where should i start upgrading or optimazing the system



Win 10 pro

Ryzen 3900x

Asus Pro X570-ACE (watercooled)

G.SKILL 16GB 3200MHz CL14 DDR4

Gigabyte RTX 2070 Gaming 

Samsung 860 QVO 1TB (ssd where video files are)


Thx in advance for any advice and sorry for clunky english

Your system is more than capable to do a premiere edit.

Monitor your Ram usage, make sure it's not full when your doing edits.

Turn on mercury engine (cuda) to make use of your powerful GPU.

This guy pretty much sums it up:


Ryzen 2600 @ 4ghz | Radeon RX580 | 32gb HyperX 3200mhz | 500gb Samsung PM981a | 5 TB HDD | Corsair CX450

Cuda is on, media cache set  970 EVO Plus NVMe M.2 SSD playback is set on 1/2 or 1/4. memory usage max got to 89%(correction). I understand that 16GB ram is not much for video editing but while working i only listen to spotify. I dont even start Steam or other apps. I would blame h.264 codec but my friend dont have such hard time with much older i7 + ram 16 gb. really dont get why playback is so terrible. I dont even want to think how pc will deal with bigger projects



That system should be able to do playback in premiere pro just fine. What video formats are you working with?


4k mp4 from dji drone or 1080p/4k mp4 sony a6500
