Does adobe give you downgrade rights to use a prior version?
Have heard that there are no problems with Premiere Pro CS5.5 and ACVHD files.
If you convert ACHD to m2v / wav files all is fine but i want to sometimes edit files natively in HD.
1600MHz HyperX Kingston memory
3 hard drives. Boot is SSD, video is 1TB Seagate / 750GB WD Black.
EVGA nVIDIA 480 GTX using text file Hack for MPE.
I don't think they do. Fortunately I still have 5.5 installed on my system and confirm there are no problems with 5.5 and spanned AVCHD clips.
Our workaround for now is to use 5.5 to transcode all our AVCHD clips to another format for editing (take your pick of what you want) in CS6.
For now, CS6 seems broken and the last update was dissapointing not to have fixed this.
AVCHD is very CPU intensive... an i5 CPU is below optimum
With an i5 CPU I think you will need to convert for "acceptable" AVCHD editing
An i5 being below the optimum is, of course, a separate issue from the CS6 bug
David, go to your Premiere Pro Benchmark (PPBM5) results page and if you filter the reults by first selecting the "Version" Tab to just show CS5.5 results and then filter with the "Model CPU" on the i5 series you will see the results of 3 tested i5-3570K systems. Test your system with this benchmark (go back to the home page and then to benchmark instructions) and see what your system is capable of doing. There are four benchmarks. You can then compare reults to others and for instance if your Disk I/O score is high you can see that you need to improve that. If specifically your MPEG2-DVD encoding score is high it generally means your CPU is not functioning as well as it could be. Maybe you system needs tuning to get rid of unecessary processes. The MPEG2-DVD score and the H.264 score are both also dependent on CPU and GPU. Your i7-3570K is not hyperthreaded so that is a problem that maybe holding you back on AVCHD. Also since you have a "K" version you might be able to overclock the processor to get more power out of the CPU. How much memory?
I had an I7 2600K and upgraded and overclocked to 4GHz. I had excactily the same issues with the I7 2600K so it's not the cpu, it's ad adobe pp cs6 issue as other people have reported. Editting AVCHD (longer clips) make CS6 basically unusable unless you transcode to a diffreent format.
Apparently CS5 and CS 5.5 don't have this issue.
So CPU and 16GB Ram is not the issue. Doesn't even make a diffrenece moving all the movie files to the SSD
The I5 3570K is totally up to the task. It is one of the most powerful processors on earth. It benchmarks just a little under the modern core i7s.
I'm editing with a core i5 2500k with CS5.5 and thing are all daisies. AVCHD runs fine.
Just curious if this is still an issue with CS6. I edit a lot of footage in AVCHD in CS 5.5 right now. We are going to be buying another edit system shortly with CS6 and I was going to upgrade my current system to CS6 also.
It's a crap situation to be sure. I've had the occasional bill collector calling, wanting a payment. But I have to wait for my producer to pay me. And he has to wait for the client to pay him.
The reality is that none of us creates everything we need on our own. All of us, software companies included, rely on others to get things done. And it sucks when those 'others' sometimes hold us up. Makes us look bad to those who rely on us to get things done.
One thing I learned, though, is that the bill collector calling me 8 times a day didn't get my check to show up any sooner.
All well and good, but if you had been waiting 8 months for your payment you'd be jumping up and down and thinking about legal action.... no?
I think 8-9 months is long enough that I can only sumise the 3rd party supplier decided they simply don't want to fix it at all.
Well...conclusions drawn in a vacuum are seldom accurate. The fact is we have no data on who that third-party is, or what the technical issues are, or what's needed to resolve them.
Doesn't change the frustration, though, does it?
I think I'm having the same problem. The playback keep freezing or going choppy. It's highly inconsistent. I edited 35-minute AVCHD files with no problem, but the 60-75 minute ones are giving me a lot of trouble. It's infuriating and I'm really not sure what to do.
I am going to suggest trying to cut the edit timeline into pieces and after doing the final edit in each piece reassemble in a new full timeline for export. If I get time I will do the same myself, but right now that is a big if.
If anyone has success with this approach please let us know.
