Aside from trying to stay on the bleeding edge of gaming, one thing that’s sure to chew up every resource your PC has to offer, it’s video editing. And anybody who’s used Premiere Pro for video editing has been there at some point where it just refuses to give you the performance that you need.

Well, in this video, Olufemii shows us one hundred ways to speed up Adobe Premiere Pro to make our editing workflow go more smoothly. These tips are primarily geared towards Windows users, although some of them will be useful for Mac users, too.

It’s rare that a slowdown in Premiere Pro – or any application, really – is down to a single thing. And it’s not always down to “this software’s gotten so bloated these days!”, either. Sometimes you only need to change a setting, update a driver, or turning on or off some other piece of software to help your apps run more efficiently.

While there are a lot of tips here that offer general advice for all Premiere Pro CC users on PC to help speed things up, some of these measures are simply good workflow practice. They help to stop it slowing down in the first place – like limiting the number of apps running in the background, deleting drivers for hardware you no longer use and keeping your disks organised.

Others are designed to help you fault find why Premiere Pro is running slowly after you start experiencing a decrease in performance. It’s like a checklist, in a way. A list of things for you to go through to see if any of the suggestions help. Some will, and some won’t make a difference. It all depends on your system.

Of course, Olufemii does go into some of the hardware changes you can make to improve performance, as well, but good look buying a more powerful graphics card right now!
