Indexing Files Takes 20 minutes in CS6

Feb 12, 2013 7:04 AM

When I load 200 .m2t video files (totalling 2.5 hrs) into Premiere Pro CS6, it takes 20 minutes to "index" all the files. I am using .m2t files because my capture computer is not 64bit and so I only have Premiere Pro CS4 in it, which cannot capture HDV with scene splitting, so I use HDVSplit to capture the video and it creates .m2t files. Then I edit the video in my newer computer (see specs below).

 

Dell Vostro 470, Windows 7, Intel Core i5-3450 CPU @ 3.10 GHz,  8 GB RAM, 64 bit OS, Geforce GT-620.

    I didn't see a question...?

    20 minutes does not seem to be an inordinate amount of time to

    initially conform and create waveforms for 2.5 hours of footage.

     

    But, if it is taking 20 minutes each time you open the project

    after the initial conform... that would be unusual.

    Now... indexing, conforming and generating waveforms

    for 2.5 hours of footage in seconds seems unlikely.

    his slightly older computer does it in seconds.

     

    Unlikely if PP did not perform the capture.
