    Premiere uses all my 32GB of RAM | 2018 CC

    Teun Peters

      Hi all,


      I've got this weird problem. My Premiere CC 2018 is eating up all of my RAM. I'm working with a simple timeline; just 3 layers of video GH4's 4K 100Mbit Footage. (not playing simultaneously) and two audio tracks.


      Whenever I jump through my timeline - for i.e. when I'm looking for a specific shot - my RAM usage skyrockets to the maximum value (32GB) which causes Premiere to drastically lag. It takes about 5 seconds to load before I can resume playback. Sometimes it even completely freezes up which makes me have to force quit the program. It's really annoying me because I've invested in a very high-end system to avoid this hassle and stress...

      I've already cleared my cache.


      My system:


      CPU: Intel® Core™ i9-7980XE (2,6 GHz) OC'd @ 4GHz

      Memory: 32 GB Corsair VENGEANCE DDR4 3600MHz (4 x 8 GB)

      SSD: 500 GB Samsung 860 EVO.  -> Also the location of Premiere Pro

      HDD: 2 TB SEAGATE BARRACUDA SATA-III 3,5 inch HDD, 6 GB/s, 7200 RPM -> Where my media is located


      Please help me!
