Premiere only crashes when the video-files are larger than 1080p, i scaled the 4K videos down to 1080 and they worked.
...everything crashed, when the video-files were larger than 1080p, but 1080p or less worked
This is not normal behavior.
Premiere is fully capable of importing and editing 4k media.
I´m working on an 2011 i5 iMac and an external Hard Drive for my Videos.
Try moving your media files to an internal drive before importing.
Tried this, but it failed too...
Have you installed all current updates to Premiere?
Yes, everything is on the newest version, i update everytime i see anything in the Adobe aplication manager...
The only thing that could´ve changed are the settings on my mac...
Sounds like this might be your trouble?
I run a pc... no help to you.
Optimizing for performance: Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects
But the crazy thing is, that After Effects works complete fine with my 4K-Videos, only Premiere has some issues !
So i think this problem isn´t causes through my pc-settings, more trough Premiere Pro or ?
Important thing i noticed !
I can create a comp with the 4K video in After Effects and import it into Premiere and it works !
But of course this can´t be a solution for the future because it´s a lot of work creating a comp for each video and import that into Premiere...
