I am running CS6 on windows 8. The yellow progress bar at the bottom right of the screen is continiously stepping through ever clip in my project - it says it's conforming each one. Should this be happening?
Yes. The time it takes depends on the speed of your system.
It should only happen when you first import your footage. Normally after that, the process does not repeat for those clips.
Occasionally it does repeat, though. I don't know why.
