What codec is used inside those AVI or MOV wrappers? Where did you get those files from?
For Canon 5D material your i5 processor and the 8 GB RAM and possibly the rest of your setup is not powerful enough/
Thanks, Harm. Found G-Spot and I'm checking the codec issues now. I never really had problems with .avi files in CS4, so I guess I'm just surprised the latest and greatest version of Pe isn't more ready to go with that format.
I was told the i5 processor is a hyper-threaded quad-core with built-in HD video support, so the idea that it is not sufficient also surprises me. And, the 8GB is what the Adobe system requirements recommend-- should work with 4.
Can I check back after I solve the codec issue?

Also... AVI is not a format, it is a wrapper... what is important is what is inside the wrapper
Thanks for the input, guys. Looks like it was codec issues.
Sorry I vaporized from the forum. I’m on an ugly deadline with a freebie-charity project, and I’ve been getting quite frazzled by all the technical problems.
>Looks like it was codec issues.
For anyone else who reads this... what was the codec issue, and what did you do to fix the problem?
