    Premiere Elements 11 runs slow


      It seems to run fine at first, but when I try to playback or edit the video in the timeline it lags/stutters horrendously.  If I want to watch the results of my edits I have to export the video out of Premiere and watch it that way.


      My system: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

      AMD Phenom II 910 quad-core 2.6 GHz

      8 GB DDR3 Ram

      1 TB Internal Sata HDD

      2 TB Network HDD

      AMD Radeon HD 6870 graphics card


      Video source:

      Canon Vixia HF M500

      AVCHD /w MXP (24 Mbps) recording mode @ 30 fps


      My internal HDD is basically full so I've been saving project files and all their associated media on the network drive.


      How can I fix it?
