I am sorry for the trouble you have been experiencing with Premiere Pro.
First of all, we do know about this memory issue with some premiere pro projects in 12.1.1. We have already have a fix for this in a upcoming release. Second, unfortunately, the only options we have for you is to roll back to the previous version or wait tell the patch is comes out.
Thank you for the response Nate. It's disheartening, but that's life in software I guess.
Is the memory leak an issue in 12.1.0?

The memory issue should not be present in 12.1.0.
I've just re-installed 12.0 and it would not open the project because it said it was editing with a newer client and to install Premiere Pro CC 2018.1. Is there a way to install 12.1 without going to the newest 12.1.1?
Just wanted to give you an update. We rolled back to 12.1.0 and tried to soldier on, but the project in Teams was just becoming unwieldy. Maybe it's my bad assumption that a network edit of a pilot was just the kind of use case Teams was created for (large, complex edits synthesizing many editors over many scenes/sequences into one cohesive whole) but we were typically getting load times of the project over 25 to 30 minutes (even without the memory leaks). Eventually dealing with the Teams project issues was eating up as much as 50 percent of our work time, so we went back to doing the project with carefully managed single use projects.
We love Adobe's ambitions and forward thinking, but for us Teams is unusable at this point. Would love to discuss this with some Adobe rep or someone involved in the Teams aspect of Premiere.
Thanks. Hopefully 12.1.2 or 13.0 will be the answer.
If this helps at all, I solved this problem today by deleting what must have been a corrupted video file. I deleted it from everywhere, i.e. the sequence, project and also my rushes folder so it was no longer accessible. I found it by watching the memory pressure in activity monitor while rendering and seeing where the render was up to in the timeline corresponding with when the pressure went into orange and red.
Premiere Pro CC Version 12.1.2 (Build 69). I had the issue described in this post, then fixed, all on this version.
