  • SLOW project load times with Premiere Pro

    We have a number of editors who pass projects back and forth, sometimes, depending on the project, these can take hours to load. We’ve seen this happen many times over the years. And empty project loads instantly, so I’m assuming it has something to do with path mapping and the project looking for files.

    Any ideas where to begin troubleshooting? Or a possible fix/workaround?

    Longest load time to date, 8 hours.

    Windows PC’s, everything has a fast CPU, plenty of ram, and decent GPU’s. 10GbE on an Arista, 24 bay SAN volumes.

    Do you have the luxury of collecting the whole project into a single volume?

    Do you conform all the projects with one “flavor” of proxy? That could be a massive help. You could also periodically collect a project to the used assets and work off a version of the project that only has those used assets in play.

    No, these projects are across many volumes, but even if all the work is linked to just 1 volume, it still happens.

    Not really, there’s a lot of mixed media in the workflow, no proxies. Editing is fine, it’s just opening a project on another client that’s the problem.

    I’m wondering if it might have something to do with finding or building all of the cache and conforming files. Could cache files with originals.

    I haven’t tried it, but have you thought about using Shared Projects? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MHbGiGL1to

    We’ve tried it on a few occasions. I haven’t tried it with the purpose of this problem.

    wondering what would happen if you tried loading the project with all the media offline. That would help troubleshoot to figure out whether it was something inherent in the project or in locating the media (although normally you see a window telling you that premiere is locating the media). Also, have you tried creating a new project and importing the old project into the new project rather than opening the original project?
