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.
My pixel sizes are in the range of 4288 x 3216 and the timeline stops right after a series of photos. The task manager listed the loading at 13 GB but the highest during playback was 10.3 GB when it stopped. The Physical Memory when it stopped read Total: 16333 Cached 2718 available 5785 Free 3248 Kernel Memory (MB) paged 395 Nonpaged 1797. I also had to use photoshop to save my pictures in order to get Premiere to see them. Without doing that Premiere sees all photos as the same photo.
Thanks for your help so far, I am hoping you can give me a solution as I am preparing this video for our high school assembly in two weeks as we have just come back from helping orphans in Uganda.
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.
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.
This is a two week old computer and the only programs I've installed are Avast antivirus and Samplitude (recording program). I have no idea what should or shouldn't be on but I can't believe that htis is why the timeline is stopping, My wife may have added a few things to help me but I just don't see how this could be causing all the trouble.
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.
I just wanted to thank you Jim for all the time you spent with me trying to solve my problem. This morning I got in touch with Adobe and the service technition solved my problem. There were two problems, here is what he did. Please follow the steps to fix the crash issue or a playback issue: Go to start/search program box, type %appdata% and then got to roaming folder/adobe/premiere pro/5.0 and rename it as 5.0. Then re-launch and check. He said sometimes microsoft updates mess up the preferences and therefore you must rename the file to reset the preferences. The second problem was that I needed to empty the media cache after long projects. He told me to try cleaning media cache in edit/preferences/media and clean media cache files. It's running well now. But once again I appreciate your help. Thanks Jim.
