I cannot remember the last time I had to render, it was probably years ago before I had a good computer.
How is it you don't need to render? I have to render if I want to look at the project without the video jumping multiple frames at a time...
Is it a computer power thing? I run a fairly basic (Government issued) Dell with 4GB of RAM, i5-4570 CPU @ 3.2GHz
That computer ... yea, it would be very sluggish. With 4Gb RAM you're barely able to operate, and I'd bet the rest of your system is similarly ... lagging.
A complete listing of OS/CPU/RAM/GPU/vRAM, and also disc layouts .. 1, 2, 3 or more? Internal/external? Such things could help us tell you what to expect. Also, there a LOT of info on the Hardware Forum found through the side-panels to the right of the Overview Page.
Problem is, I work for a Gov agency. What I have is what I get...
Then you probably need to render every time you make a change.
If the government requires you to do a job, they should give you the proper tools.
If they want you to screw boards together, they need to give you a screwdriver, not a pair of scissors.
Very Good Steve,
I have been missing Harm's simile's
I'm editing a 2 minutes video, it doesn't have any special effects other than some transitions and some basic CC. It was working fine, I added the VO and all went to HELL. This project has crashed 8 times. It's ridiculous.
I have a Mac Mini I5 with 16 GB of memory.
I have worked with Avid and only rendered project when it was time to export. I no longer have access to Avid.
I'm somewhat new to Premiere- have done 5 other projects on it before, one being an 16 minutes with no problems. The only way I can edit this video is by rendering, besides, every time it crashes that big fat red line is across my timeline.
The voice over was done in garage band. I have two audio tracks one for music and VO.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance.
