I am trying to do a multi-cam edit in CS 5.5 with 3 HD files and a main audio file. After syncing all of them up, after 10 seconds it begins to lag and it is impossible to mkae good cuts. I am using a MCP 2010 13'' 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 8 gb RAM.
Is my problem that my computer is old and not enough RAM? I am on the verge of buying a mac mini with 2.7 GHz i7 16 gb RAM and Fusion Drive, but I don't want to buy it and have the same problem. Can I fix this?
If you need more info let me know. I need help! Client wants work soon.
You simply lack the horsepower. Not only memory but also the CPU, possibly the disk setup and video card as well.
