    100% CPU Usage in CS5.5 Premiere Pro during export/encoding


      I am wondering why my CPU usage is so high during exporting of my videos.  My counter shoots up to 100% as soon as I start and hovers at 95% throughout the whole process.  This seems dangerous to me so I wanted to bring it up here as I haven't found anyone with this same issue on this website or google.  Here are my system specs:


      i5-2400 CPU @3.10GHz

      6 GB of Ram

      64 bit windows 7

      Geforce 660 ti graphics card (2gb)


      They aren't top of the line but I feel like it should be capable of encoding.  I've cleaned my fans and tried using avi and h.264 formats which both led to the same issues.


      Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I'm new to premiere pro so I'm sure I left some useful information out above.
