The timeline stops unexpectedly in both Premiere Pro CS5 and Encore even after rendering.

May 4, 2013 7:39 AM

I have 16 GB of RAM and a Z77X-UP4TH Gigabyte motherboard.  Once I received a message that my RAM was almost all used up.  How is that possible for a 7 minute video.  I tried deleting photoshop pictures from Photoshop that I use in the video and the history of undo's in Premiere Pro.  This has occurred on separate Premiere Pro projects usually about 3/4 through the timeline.  It usually only does it once and always at the same place.  I even tried replacing with different video but it still stops.

    What is the pixel dimensions of your photos?

    Did you go to Task Manager to see what is using the memory?

    Your photos are way oversized and could be the problem. They should be no more than about 25% larger than your sequence size if you are doing any pan and zoom, otherwise make them them no larger than the sequence setting.

     

    There is no advantage to make them larger, as the maximum resolution will be at the export setting.

    No.

    You must resize them.

     

    Photoshop Elements and other programs can do a batch resize.

    What's in the sequence at the stopping point?  Post a screen shot right after it stops.

    It stopped exactly right there?  The CTI was not moved before the screen shot?

    OK. My best guess is that you have something running on your system that is causing the stop.  Take a look at your Task Manager.  How many processes running?

    Processes is the relevant tab, not Performance.

    Expand the Name and Description columns, so we can see what each is.

    I meant expand horizontally, so we can read the entire entry without the ending ... after longer process names.

     

    But already I can see that 70 some processes is very high for an edit system.  That should be lower than 50, maybe even 40, so you definitely have more things running than is wise.

    Better, but man you do have a lot of **** running that probably shouldn't be on an edit system.  Wmpnetwk and SearchIndexer to name just two.  I'd start Googling and eliminating anything you don't need while editing, including Virus protection.

    the only programs I've installed

     

    That's actually the problem.  Whenever you buy a new computer, the very first thing you should do is wipe the hard drive and reinstall Windows from scratch, because there will almost certainly be a lot of stuff on that machine that shouldn't be on an edit system.

    Just don't forget to back up your files first.
