    Premeire CS6 moving Extremly Slow/Laggy

    LightPaintingPictures

      The title says it all, and this is extremly fustrating.  Im in the middle of a project in premeiere CS6 and it moves so slow and unresponsive I cant possible even finish.  Is there some sort of solution, I get the exact same results on 3 Mac computers.  An iMac 27in iMac 21inch and Macbook Pro.   Turn on and off open GL nothing works on all systems.  CS5.5 worked like a charm.  Any solutions, or is it off to final cut?

              It can depend on the footage you are working with.  Some footage requires more system resources.  I will say that 8 GB is low for CS6.  It will work, but it is the minimum system requirement.

                  You are right, 4 GBs is the minimum, 8 is the recommended, my mistake.

                   

                  There is something in the configuration that is causing the problem - many of our customers use Mac, including myself, without any performance issues. 

                   

                  Where are the files located, and what codec is the footage using?

                    Im uninstalling this software and counting my losses.   Not a professional editing platform.  After hours of searching online there are no available solutions.  And MANY others are experiencing the exact same thing as I am and I've tried on 3 Mac computers all recent models and the same result.  All of my computers are at least $2500 a piece and have the maximum amount of ram available and its not enough.  Last year I edited an event with Premiere Pro CS5.5 with no problems, and this year the same event I have to start editing again from scratch because I cant even open it in CS5.5.  Im a die hard Adobe customer but this really does it form me in terms of CS6 im OFFICIALLY DONE.  I cant even finish a 3hr project that I've been working on its that bad.  Definantly not recommending this to ANYBODY that puts any sort of value on there time.
