Intel Core i7 required for XAVC-S
Seems clear... if you are editing that kind of video you need that kind of Processor... is that true of you?
Yes I am using avhc video files Adobe never gives AMD specs but in Premiere Elements 10 I could edit those type of files fine in Windows 7 64 bit but with the new version and windows 8.1 who knows. It is not always straight forward.
I am not sure about the nature of this thread. You seem to be referring to the processor requirements for a computer on which Premiere Elements 13 runs and John seems to be talking about the processor support needed for the computer on which Premiere Elements is editing a specific format of Sony XAVC-S. There is a distinction between AVCHD and XAVC-S.
The Windows processor requirement under System Requirements to which John refers you is
- 2GHz or faster processor with SSE2 support; dual-core processor required for HDV or AVCHD editing and Blu-ray or AVCHD export; Intel Core i7 required for XAVC-S
And it does not get into the multi core issue, especially beyond 4 as it relates to your AMD FX6100 6 Core Processor.
I think that it would be in your best interests to download and install the free 30 day tryout of Premiere Elements 13 and determine first hand if it is compatible with your specific computer environment and project goals.
Please let us know the outcome.
I figured (wrongly, it seems) that someone using (or NOT using) XAVC-S video would know what they were editing, and the requirements
The matter of the 6 core processor came up even before Premiere Elements 13. I am not sure how that was resolved. I think that the originator of that thread was supposed to have gone to Adobe for input. I do not recall that there was ever any follow up here by the thread originator.
We will be watching for follow up on the matter from DMW5533.
