Thanks Jim. Very helpful. I'll avoid spanning as much as possible on my
Thanks again for the link. I thought that would help but I started another project and the timelinve video was freezing on a 10 minute AVCHD clip.
It even freezes on a 2 minute clip, so spanning is not the cause of the problem. My system is running on only 6Gb of my 16Gb RAM, so memory is not the issue.
What else can be the problem?
Meanwhile, my C Drive is filling up real fast with Pr cache files. I deleted the ccache file in it's folder and cleaned up cache files through Pr. Could that be the problem?
Most of the clips I'm working with were imported before the cache cleanup/delete. Even at that, the cache folder has grown about 80GB after the cleanup?
I mostly use Pr, Ps and En, Ae once in a while.
Is this a dedicated edit rig or is it also used for other things?
It is a dedicated edit rig, although I check my emails and other internet
usage as well as regula MS Office software.
Yeah, the e-mail and especially the Office software definitely precludes it from being a dedicated edit rig and throws it into the category of a multipurpose machine. I've heard of issue with Office installed. You might try a search.
My best recommendation at this point would be to wipe the hard drive with a reformat and reinstall everything from scratch, including Windows. Except this time, only install the editing specific programs. Use a second computer for Office, Internet and e-mail.
