Not speaking specifically Mac, but many Premiere crashes relate to running out of disk cache space and potential CoDec issues, so you may want to look into your settings for that and make up your mind...
Thank you, I'll look into Disk Cache Space. Assuming my Ol' *Mac is set up properly and running the best possible will Adobe PP handle my workload without problems, 150hr footage cut to 150min timeline?
I recent read an editor saying "I've hit the RAM limit" with a 1hr timeline, whatever that means? The response from another editor indicated the project needed to be broken up into smaller pieces, the original editor was on an older version of Adobe PP.
I am on a 2008 Dual Quad core, 10GB Ram with NVidia GTX 285 running PrPro CC (7.2.2) on OS 10.8.5 every day.
I don't have projects as large as yours but just started a new one with 50+ hours of mixed footage from GoPro, C300, 5dMk3 and RED 4K.
It struggles at times and I attribute most of that to low Ram. I recently tested OSX 10.9.5 (Mavericks) with CC(2014.2) and determined that 10.8.5 is faster on my machine.
NO way am I going to Yosemite until I absolutely have to.
I would definitely consider replacing your ATI video card with a NVidia to take advantage of CUDA acceleration.
The GTX 285 is inexpensive used (ebay) and it's drivers ARE still supported on Mac. Whatever NVidia card you choose, make sure it's configured for Mac to avoid headaches.
I am currently drooling over the ASUS G751JT laptop, I'm just nervous about dropping easy compatibility with affiliated Apple post houses, and starting from scratch on most peripherals.
