    Its been a long time since Ive been on Creative Cow! I hope I can draw on the collective wisdom here for some help and advice.

    I’m in a new position, supplied with a new MacBook pro 14″ OS Monterey V12.3.1 (32 GB memory) with 2 TB SSD as a media drive running from a USB C port

    I have a large project(s) coming up and I can only get the Laptop to run PP without crashing with no connected monitors. if I have 2 monitors +the laptop screen. Running any complicated editing or closing and reopening the PP software will get me the BeachBall spin, I then can only force quit and it will corrupt my timeLine.

    Using normal office software like email and a browser, Zoom ect… I have no issues. Of course PP uses more resources.

    The IT support here has supplied me with USB-C splitter (MOKIN brand) that supplies HDMI and USB-A connections. it gets quite hot and if I touch it, the screens black out for a few sec’s

    What configuration are people using to edit with from this laptop? any recommendations on display adaptors? Am I crazy to try to use 3 screens ?

    i was reading there were many people on adobe forums with your same setup and issue. some uses may have had luck trying the premiere beta version.

    So is it the software that is not happy with the display adaptor (Mokin)? where would I even find the Beta software? What forum should I be on to see the discussions?

    The beta is on the Cloud app.

    UPDATE on Macbook pro and Premiere Pro

    Ive been limping along trying to meet my deadlines, and minimize the loss of productivity when I get a crash. I was able to talk to an old colleague that configures editing systems. He recommended 2 changes:

    • RE-Format my Samsung T5 SSD media drive to match the MacBook (APFS)
    • Roll back my version of PP to the long term supported version (15.4.5)

    The systems seems to be more stable, but I still get the beach-ball fail when booting first thing in the AM, I’ve worked around this by launching PP and trashing the preferences. I’m spending a few minutes after launching resetting my preferences and I haven’t had a crash while editing since.

    Any thoughts on why resetting my preferences each time averts the Program non-responsive notice and prompting a force quit?
