December 2021 Release (Version 22.1.1)

Plug-in compatibility issues

Premiere Pro 22.1.1 introduced a bug that impacts third-party After Effects plugins that work in Premiere Pro, such as those from BorisFX, Red Giant, Digital Anarchy, and other vendors. The bug impacts plugin functions that request a frame from Premiere Pro, such as a thumbnail image. 

For more information on affected plugins and workarounds, see this community post.

Out of memory errors on M1 Macs

If Premiere Pro or Media Encoder is experiencing out-of-memory errors on M1-based Macs, adjusting the amount of memory allocated to Adobe applications may help decrease or eliminate the occurrence of these errors. You can try increasing the amount of memory that the operating system uses to achieve a 50% balance between Adobe and other applications/OS.

To work around this issue:

In the memory allocation area in the Memory preferences dialog (Preferences > Memory), it shows the amount of RAM available to Adobe and other applications.

  1. Change the value listed for other applications to represent 50% of the total installed RAM.
  2. Restart Adobe application to activate new memory allocation.

October 2021 Release (Version 22.0)


Important After Effects update for Premiere Pro and Media Encoder users 
After Effects 22.0.1 includes fixes for issues in Premiere Pro and Media Encoder.  
Issue: Premiere Pro 22.0 and Media Encoder 22.0 could become unresponsive when using After Effects 22.0 compositions via Dynamic Link. 
Solution: Update to After Effects 22.0.1.

Hang when using After Effects 22.0 compositions in Premiere Pro 22.0 or Media Encoder 22.0

This issue occurs when:

  • Importing or working with After Effects compositions via Dynamic Link in Premiere Pro
  • Using Motion Graphics templates (MOGRTs) created in After Effects. Premiere Pro may become unresponsive while loading a MOGRT.

A fix for this issue is available now in After Effects 22.0.1.


Follow the steps in this knowledge base article.


This is a capture format used with cameras such as the Sony A7siii, and others. This issue typically occurs when playback resolution is set to half.  

To avoid this issue, switch to full resolution OR enable High Quality Playback using the wrench menu in the Program Monitor. If you need half-resolution playback only, download the latest Beta versions of Premiere Pro and After Effects, which have the fix for this issue.

We will include this fix in the release versions in the near future. In the interim, consider these workarounds:

  • Set playback resolution to full and enable high-quality playback from the program monitor wrench menu. 

  • If needed, revert to Premiere Pro 15.4.1

  • Use the current public Betas of Premiere Pro and After Effects.

Hang when using After Effects MOGRTs in Premiere Pro 

Premiere Pro 22.0 hangs or freezes when using Motion Graphics Template (MOGRTs) that were created in After Effects. The MOGRT often gets stuck at 15% while loading and cause the application to become unresponsive. A fix for this issue is available now in the Premiere Pro (Beta). We will bring the fix into the release version in the near future. In the interim, consider these workarounds:

  • Avoid using MOGRTs created in After Effects.  

  • Revert to Premiere Pro 15.4.1 and After Effects 18.4.1. 

  • Use the current public Betas of Premiere Pro and After Effects.

After Effects MOGRTs that use Lumetri parameters fail to render in Premiere Pro

MOGRTs created in previous versions of After Effects that use Lumetri will fail to apply the Lumetri adjustments.  You can see the Lumetri parameters for the MOGRTs in the Essential Graphics panel, but adjusting them has no effect.


  • Recreate the MOGRT in the current release of After Effects and re-import into the current version of Premiere Pro.

  • Avoid using the Lumetri effect in MOGRTs.

  • Revert to Premiere Pro 15.4.1 and After Effects 18.4.1.

May 2021 Release (Version 15.2)

  • Preview glitches or crashes can occur when using Premiere Pro 15.2 or After Effects 18.2 on systems with Nvidia drivers if you have enabled Image Sharpening or Antialiasing - FXAA in Nvidia Control Panels. For more information and a resolution to this issue, see Preview glitch or crash after resizing Preview panels.
  • Issue: The Lumetri Scopes shift to a dimmed UI after bringing its tabbed panel forward in a panel grouping. This happens when the Display Color Management preference is enabled and the Windows Display Setting option of Use HDR is set to On.
    Workaround: Click on a video thumbnail in the Project Panel or Media Browser. Or toggle on and off the Comparison View in the Program Monitor. This makes the Lumetri Scopes UI update to the expected brightness level and it remains at that brightness until its panel is moved behind another panel.  Undocking the Lumetri Panel can also prevent it from shifting back to the dimmed state.
  • Issue: If you are running Premiere Pro 15.2 on a Windows laptop with an NVIDIA GPU device and you have NVIDIA drivers which are out of date, you might experience instability during application launch or during your editing workflow.  
    Resolution: Update the NVIDIA drivers on your system to the latest ones for your system. For more information, see Crash in Premiere Pro 15.2 and After Effects 18.2 on Windows laptops with older NVIDIA graphics card drivers.
