Okay getting completely irritated with these issues of overheating when I even just am rendering a video to get ready for export (and also on exporting)
Windows 8 64-bit
System Model CM1855
AMD FX(tm)-8120 Eight-Core Processor (8CPUS), 3.1GHz
Memory 8192MB RAM
Page File 2211MB used 7100avail
DirectX 11 Version
I have tried setting power controls to the CPU to 80% but using SpeedFan I can see the CPU usage still spiking 90%-98% and heating just keeps rising and rising til shutdown.
Rendering Usage in Balanced Power Settings
Rendering Usage in High Power Settings
I really suck at understanding these things. But changing from Balanced to High Power didnt seem to affect the rendering times. But also the time was down at like 20-40 minutes before I started messing with the power controls now its at over 2 hours.
Finished a small render with success but it got pretty hot again and Norton pops up saying High CPU usage by PPro. 100% was hit quite a bit too.
If someone could help me out I have 2 wedding videos to get completed.
Untick processors 1,3,5,7 for Adobe Premiere or Adobe Encoder, whichever is using the most CPU cycles.
Now only 1/2 of your processors are working. That should lower your internal temperature a bit.
What brand/model CPU cooler do you have, and when is the last time you opened your case and "carefully" vacumed the dust out?
I never have CPU heat problems (link http://forums.adobe.com/thread/652694 includes a link to the computer I built) but I DO have a good CPU cooler and a case with 2 side fans blowing air directly onto the motherboard
It's stock but my friend was using Vegas Pro on it before he sold it to me and he never had overheating issues. I'm about to try using Vegas and canceling my CC membership I have Vegas I just wanted to use adobe but really I could get away w just buying Lightroom and I'd rather not have to re edit what I have edited. But the cooler should be what came with the ASUS model I posted. I also just tried setting affinity to only even number processors but it still made it to 88C and shut off. So I'm thinking yes a cooling issue but weird that Adobe makes it overheat and Vegas supposedly does not .
Adobe Media Encoder. It launches when you export from Premiere via the Queue command. The render that you're performing is handled within Premiere Pro's process.
It's not necessary to pre-render within Premiere prior to exporting. Rendering helps with exporting only if you enable the Use Previews, and that's recommended only in a few special cases.
Perhaps if you tell us a bit about your sequence, we can advise as to whether it's expected that the CPU would be working so hard.
Also, on the hardware side, what graphics card is installed? Does it support GPU acceleration, and is that option enabled (File>ProjectSettings>General>Renderer)?
>what graphics card is installed?
According to what I found via Google, the ASUS CM1855 has AMD CPU and AMD GPU, but he mentions CC so his GPU "may" allow hardware acceleration (I found several configurations under that model, so not really sure if his GPU has enough memory for hardware acceleration)
As far as his comment "weird that Adobe makes it overheat and Vegas supposedly does not" that would be similar to saying "it's odd that my Chevy oil filter won't fit my Ford truck" where the two programs do things differently (at least that is my opinion)
Yes I am filming on a Canon 60D in 1080 30p.
No effects on video but some adjustments to sound volume.
No multicam just straight forward video.
Graphics card on it ASUS HD7670 Series at least thats what I could find.
I also just tried rendering in Vegas Pro 11 and same issue. So I have to lean towards the fact that the cooling system isn't enough. Or I need to invest in either a nice GPU or just finally invest in an Apple. I hate spending money when my old HP works fine doesnt overheat. Rendering takes forever but at least I was able to do it.
Thanks for all the advice everyone has been giving me.
No it hits 88C then turns off I was just showing screenshots of SpeedFan right as I stopped the rendering/exporting. Bc I cant keep letting it overheat lol but right when i try to screenshot at close to 88C it shuts off lol my bud that sold it to me and is a computer wiz is heading over so hopefully we figure out whats happening but I'm leaning towards the cooling system.
I bought a fan specifically to aim air at the intake of my PC. It reduced the temp significantly. Of course, all that really means is that I should have more fans in my case, but the external fan works fine.
