Try putting the clips on a local drive. Same thing?
Yeah which is what is bumming me out
Same thing, It happend on our old bulid which was a Dell Optiplex 980 fully loaded out
and on Our new workstations which are custom built with GeForce 660 video card, 32 gigs of RAM
256 gig Solid State hard drive, It will make you coffee if you ask it nice enough
I have even bypassed the 10 gig line from the switch to a 1 gig line into the server over
the universities system and have had the same results
One other thing, if you wait to load the project it works fine, if you close the project but not close Premiere it works fine, but if close premiere, its fast into the bin, but takes forever into the time line
What's the local hard drive config?
..its fast into the bin, but takes forever into the time line
Does your Timeline contain Dynamically Linked elements?
Are your video tracks expanded, and displaying frames?
These variables can slow the load of a Timeline.
Not sure what you mean by configured, students edit in a standard user mode
i have been switching between administrative and standard user mode
The video tracks are not completley expanded and they are showing frames
The Projects that i have been working with are last springs, Trimed Projects
This may be a normal time, I am the engineer and do not get involved very much with the
teaching of video editing. Our Intstructor is out of town for the moment. But something has changed
not sure what
Not sure what you mean by configured
I mean how many local hard drives are in the machine, what are their capacities, and how are they used?
students edit in a standard user mode
That can be an issue. Adobe software should be used from an Admin account.
The new machines have a single 256 gig Solid State drive
They are used to log students in and run the Adobe CS6 software, occasionly burn videos to dvd
The students are actually editing on the server
We have never had a problem editing in stantard user mode before
The Idea of giving students Admin access to the computer is not a good idea, they will inaverdantly destroy a computer. I have only 10 workstations and they have to work 24/7 during the semester
Students log into there edit share accounts once the computer boots up
Remember this is happeing on the old machines and the new machines as well
We have never had a problem with this to about a week ago, they are 1 gig ethernet apiece to the switch
and the switch is a 10 gig connection to the server
by the way if you are not fammilar with it, The Edit Share server is designed specificaly for networked video editing
the workstations are not online they only connect to the Edit share server
Premiere Pro has a history of not working very well with files over a network. It's the reason Adobe developed Adobe Anywhere, which has it's own hardware requirements.
The general recommendation outside of using Adobe Anywhere is to have everything local. A good basic setup uses five internal hard drives, the bare minimum uses there internal hard drives. You take your chances not following that recommendation.
That is the problem with networking it causes so many problems not just with Adobe software, anything will run slower in this environment than using a local machine, nothing you can do about that really. And the other problem is the multiple layers of hardware plus the number of config files
As with everything go back to when it was working correctly and look at any changes since then. Were you using the Edit Share server then and its related hardware? If not perhaps the issue is with that. That is the BIG problem with networking is the logistics of finding the error and why it is happening and that can take a lot of troubleshooting.
