First of all this is the specs of the work computer I am running:
Intel Core2 Duo CPU E8500 @ 3.17Ghz
8.00 GB RAM
64 bit Windows
I am currently using Premiere Elements 10 and I am having serious issues with running the programme. I am currently adding text to a video, step by step for the media to play on a background screen in silence.
When I try and scroll through the timeline, even slightly my entire elements is lag spiking, my screen freezes for a few seconds then jumps way further down the teamline than where I wanted to work. When I preview the video I get the same problem, the video lags and all I see essentially is random frames. After a while the lagging will get progressively slower before crashing. The system I am using is brand new and contains F-Secure anti virus software, so I doubt that could be the problem and I have a bare system with no background programs running.
I have been reading that some people are having problems with 64 bit elements. I am hopeful that someone may be able to give me a slight heads up .
Render your timeline (press Enter) whenever you see a red line above your clips and this won't be an issue. When you have green lines above your clips, the program is able to use pre-rendered for your playback, relieving your system of having to carry so much in RAM.
Done the trick! Thanks alot.
