I have created a project from MP4 files ... video camera.... after editing for content and time I rendered the timeline. after the rendering the playback is glitching and freezing up. I have a 8core cpu 8 gb ram 2gb vid card and a lot of drive space.... why is tis happening?
When you say you have an 8 core processor, I assume you don't mean an AMD 8 core, which can be much slower than many Intel quad cores.
That said, have you run a virus check on your computer using Malware Bytes? Something is clearly interfering with the program's performance.
I do indeed mean I have a AMD 8core and I think it is adequate for the application. However, I have not used the malware you recommend although I have used Kaspersky Total. I will try the malware sweep.... This system worked very well with PE12 and in this case, the problem only developed AFTER I rendered the time line the first time.
