I recently upgraded to Flash CS3 Pro (WinXP). It is very slow
to use -- the mouse keeps getting "stuck" for several seconds at a
time, sometimes longer. It seems to get even slower when I open the
script window (F9).
Has anyone else had this problem, and is there a way to fix
it? It sort of drives you insane.
this problem happened with me when I open a very heavy file
or if there is some thing eats my RAM. try to test the Flash while
just opening a new file and make sure you do not have some thing or
software eats your RAM.
I have a similar problem -- the scripting window drags
incredibly slowly on my 2.08 GHz desktop, but runs perfectly smooth
on my 1.8 GHz laptop. They both have 1 GB ram. No other programs
run as slow as CS3 does, even without any documents open!
You certainly are not alone. I'm running into the same
problem. I have 4gb of ram in my system, though I'm not running
vista yet, thus it sees 2.5gb. I'm on a dual dual-core xeon 3.0g
system, so it actually exceeds the recommendations for HD video. I
have a 5 disc raid0 array.
I don't have any answers for you, nor do I have any new
information. But I do want to confirm that there is a big problem.
My ram appears unused, and so do my CPUs. The CPUs get used for 10
seconds, then sit for 45... it's entirely useless.
Is there anything that can be done? It's really, really
useless to have your computer freeze 2/3 of the time while a
program is simply open and doing nothing...
At any time I put an mp4 video in the encoder, even files of
just 3 minutes long, and 45 MB big, it goes to a "not responding"
situation, stealing my pointer, and sitting on something. All I get
is a hung computer. I have to wait a long time before I can control
anything. This occurs with small or large files, mp4 and avi. This
does not happen in Handbrake.
This does not just happen on import, but during the encoding
process as well. It takes lots more time than it did with the prior
may be try to reinstall Flash, I do not know if you did that
already. Also i suggest to do the same process on a different
machine with different Flash version, if the problem in your Flash
version, you will need to contact the Customer support
This is scaring me off from upgrading to CS3. Have you
officially reported this as a bug? Now that this is Adobe's first
real release of Flash, HOPEFULLY they will break from Macromedia's
tradition of never fixing bugs. The bug report form is here:
