Premiere Pro Memory Leak On Windows?

Feb 1, 2014 3:23 PM

Tags: #memory #pro #premiere

Premiere has worked fine for the last 5 months. Today when I opened it, it began using all my available physical memory and crashed the program because it was so slow. Average physical memory usage is about 20% but as soon as the program is opened, it rises and keeps rising until it has maxed out. I have already tried a system restore, reboot and reinstall. Nothing works. Please help.

    That's certainly not normal.

     

    Unfortunately, I don't have any ideas about a cause, which means no ideas about a solution either.

     

    Does this happen with all projects?  New projects?  Are you using the Warp Stabilizer effect at all?  Have you tried trashing preferences?

    I'm not too concerned about how much is being used.  PP will use what it needs and may not let go until you close it.

     

    The issue is with the crashing.

     

    So...do these new projects crash as well?

    OK.

     

    The only idea I have left is to start a new user account.  Make is Admin, not a guest.

     

    If that doesn't work, we may be down to a reinstall of Windows.
