Premiere has worked fine for the last 5 months. Today when I opened it, it began using all my available physical memory and crashed the program because it was so slow. Average physical memory usage is about 20% but as soon as the program is opened, it rises and keeps rising until it has maxed out. I have already tried a system restore, reboot and reinstall. Nothing works. Please help.
That's certainly not normal.
Unfortunately, I don't have any ideas about a cause, which means no ideas about a solution either.
Does this happen with all projects? New projects? Are you using the Warp Stabilizer effect at all? Have you tried trashing preferences?
It does happen with all projects. I have tried a previous project as well as starting two different new projects before and after reinstalling.
Just trashed preferences and opened a clip. On starting playback, my physical memory jumped from 29% to 89% and kept rising like yesterday.
My machine has 8 gigs of RAM which should be more than enough to handle premiere and has been for the last five months.
Yes, the new projects crash the exact same as the existing ones. The problem is that it is crashing BECAUSE it is using my entire physical memory. Again, I have not had this problem before now and I have not had any hardware changes or anything that should affect it.
Oddly enough, I recorded some new footage directly to my desktop instead of to the external harddrive where i was recording it to before. Something must have gotten messed up between transfers. Thanks for the help.
