Possibly. What are the full specs of your computer?
Processor, processor speed, graphics card, speed of hard drive, etc.
Doe your project setting match your media?
Thanks for quick response!
i7 processor 2.5 ghz processor. 8gb of ddr3l sdram
5400rpm hard drive
intel hd graphics520
I am new to this so not sure how to tell if project setting matches the media. What am I checking for?
What do you mean when you say you're "being forced" to render?
Do you mean that the program won't play your timeline or that you're just getting a render indicator?
The line above the timeline turns red when I add any transition or effect until I render it. It plays well though.
That's exactly what should happen, Dan. Whenever you add a transition or effect, your old rendered files are no longer valid and you need to re-render.
But, with a computer as powerful as yours, you don't NEED to render every time you see a red line above your timeline. You can wait until your playback starts to lug -- which, with your system, may not be until you see a lot of red above the timeline!
Thank you very much.
So then there is nothing wrong with my computer?
A friend of mine that uses premier told me that there is something wrong with the computer if it constantly turns red. But guess he is wrong!
I am noticing that after I render, then I close the program, when I reopen the project, the red line render indicator comes back!
Is that normal?
That was a problem that was fixed in later versions, Dan At least it should have been by version 12.
Meantime, make sure you've got the latest Quicktime version for your operating system. That seems to help.
my problem, when you render I know you should press enter, I have try that it does not work for me. I don't know what else to do..
Thank for any help..
