    Speeding up EFX and CC work


      I'm working with 4K footage in Premiere CC 2017. Working with effects and color correction is extremely slow. Using Lumetri CC panel is the worst offender, it takes 30+ seconds for an effect adjustment to show up on screen making it pretty much useless for subtle correction - if you blink at the wrong time you might not even see the change. I utilized past forum suggestions to speed up the work, but they're mostly older posts, and I didn't see any results when I tried the suggestions so I shelled out to upgrade my graphics card hoping that would fix the problem.  It has made only a slight difference. Any recommendations on what is working for others would be appreciated.
