I am trying to benchmark my new system, and I am having problems with the benchmark script and instructions.
First I tried to download the CS6 version from PPBM6.com, and the file contained no instructions. I never got a response to my inquiry about getting some, so I then went to the PPBM5.com site and go the cs5.5/cs6 version. I followed the instructions to the best of my abilities (exactly to my knowledge) and get an error when I go to compile the results. I believe the error is in line 78, and it mentions a file missing. I'm guessing it's looking for the files I rendered, and they're all there, named what they're supposed to be.
Even at that, I do have the system specs and render times, so maybe I can at least figure out if I have everything set up correctly within my system.
First I'll list my build
3770k CPU at stock clock
ASrock extreme 4 mobo
Zotac GTX 660 GPU factory OC
16gb DDR3 1333 CAS 9 ram stock speed
240gb SSD for OS and programs
2tb 7200 rpm HDD for work files (ppro proj files, footage, images, etc)
1tb 7200 rpm HDD for cache and render files
Then I have a 1tb drive for personal data but it isn't used in this case.
I believe my times were 1:02 for the H.264test, 1:06 for the disk speed test, and I believe just over 2 minutes (like 2:01 or 2:10 can't remember) for the MPEG-2 DVD test.
The one thing I don't quite get about the test is that I'm using a single disk per instructions (make sure cache is same as project, render to the PPBM5 folder on the same drive), and not utilizing my chache/render disk which should give me better render times than using a single disk. I didn't try running it with that setup, but if someone would be willing to take a look at my render times with that changed I would really appriciate it!
Yep I'm having the same problem. Ran as administrator as Harm suggested per email. Did it line by line and still came up with at first error line 35
When I tried it this way
I ended up with error 78
Deleted everthing several times just could not get it to work.
Sorry about the problems.
Paul and murph. Those old sites PPBM5.com and PPBM6.com are unsupported at this point and I do not remember error 78 Was that running the project or running the Statistics file?
The current site is PPBM7.com and the download can test Premiere 6, 7, or 8. For your information my partner in this effort has been hospitalized for several weeks now
If you want to export to another disk CUT (do not copy) the 4 exported files and paste them to the folder that has the project file.
Use the contact address on the site to get directly to me.
