Are you a huge nerd who wants to go through stats and numbers rather than being an artist putting your soul on display for the world? Then turn on this performance overlay so you can focus more on min-maxing performance and workflow and forget about “telling a story”.
Seriously though this is a pretty handy tool hidden in Premiere Pro to allow you to measure how your computer is performing with the footage and effects on your timeline.
Thanks go to Linus Tech Tips for showing this off and not explaining how to do it (!) sending me on a wild e-goose chase culminating in the creation of this video.
