I am trialing Premiere Pro CS6 (in the Cloud install) for possible purchase and it really seems pretty much unusable at this point. The video source/sequence preview windows will both play a video smoothly for about 3 seconds and then manage about 1 frame per second thereafter. If I stop and play the video again the same thing is repeated.
I have an AMD Radeon HD 7800 series GPU and an i5 processor. Neither the processor or available memory (8G) is being maxed out. Videos are being played from an SSD.
I cannot change the renderer in Project Settings -> General and I don't have any of the advanced options for checking CUDA is turned off etc - I guess this is maybe a limitation of the trial software??
Anyway I would appreciate any feedback. Currently there is no way I would buy this software after the trial if this cannot be resolved.
Underpowered system for your needs. What is the source material?
Source material are WMVs - resolution of 1280x720 30fps stereo audio.
More detailed info on system:
GPU AMD Radeon HD 7850 overclocked @ 1050 core 2GB onboard @ 5700
CPU i5-3450 @ 3.10 Ghz (4 cores)
None of my system is a bottleneck according to CPU/GPU activity. My CPU is running at about 27% and the GPU is hardly registering an interest.
Can you tell me which piece of hardware you think is underpowered?
Try some standard camera media.
