    Choppy playback and rediculously long render time in CS5.5


      I am editing an hour clip filmed on panasonic tm900 camera at 1080p 29.97fps. I converted the .mts file to .mov with clipwrap before importing into PP. Scrubbing through the timeline is slow but playback is rediculous. Plays a few seconds the freezes, playing a few seconds here and there with audio playing fully. When I go to render the project at 720p for a 57 min clip it takes 8 hrs. Tried exporting as mpeg2 and h.264 and same for both. I know the HD file is the reason bc dealing with SD is fine. Think my computer is powerful enough so have no idea what it is. Any suggestions? Thanks
