You're going to have to provide some details on your system...it could by any number of things.
I am curious if it could be the production bundles that have this problem. My system is the same system that worked great with Premiere Pro 1.0. I can asure you both that it is not my system but here are the specs.
Dual Core P4 at 3.4 GHZ
Gigabyte GA-965P-DQ6 Review
1.5 GB of RAM
80 Gig HD
Nvidia 7300 GS
Windows XP Pro
There is no 3 Gig switch being used and it is a brand new instal of the CS3 suite. There is no virus scan or any other software installed.
One thing you may want to check is you playback performance - what's it set to?
Also, are your video drivers up to date.
It is in the highest quality setting as mentioned in my first post. I never use draft mode with DV-25 footage(draft mode looks like crap). I like to see clean previews in the NTSC monitor. The system used to rock with PP 1.0. I am getting frustrated with this upgrade.
How do you get the preview out to the external monitor?
How does it all look on the Premiere Source and Program Monitors?
> I can asure you both that it is not my system but here are the specs.
I can assure you that it might be your system. First of all there exists no dual core P4. You probably mean a P4 with HT. Secondly you have only 1 disk with only 80 GB. How much is still free? Better add at least 2 internal SATA drives. Also increase RAM to 2 GB.
I loop through a DAC-100 DV converter. The VGA playback is OK but I can not expect my clients to look at a VGA preview while doing over the shoulder edits. The NTSC Fire Wire out put was the big selling point of PP 1.0. I am going to return my CS3 Master Collection. My systems rock.
My clients watch a full rez R/T 720p HD image on an external monitor (fed by an Intensity Pro Card). I also run a second HD monitor for my own hi quality preview and simultaneously run Dual Monitor PC .
Audio is via Audigy Card or Intensity Pro Card.
My system rocks (CS3 Production Premium). Cant figure why you would return yours.
There are indeed Dual Core Pentium 4 CPUs. Mine is at 3.4 GHZ. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentium_D
It is not the hard drive either. If you had read my post you would realize it is a fresh install but please read further because increasing the RAM to 2 GIGS will do no good either. I have actually installed the Master Collection on my Core 2 Dual at 2.13 GHZ with 2 GIGs of RAM and I get the same crappy images. I also have Premiere Pro 1.0 installed on both systems and they both rock (always have). The P4D at 3.4 and C2D at 2.13 are equal in perfomrance. With PP 1.0 I can get 4 layer of DV-25 on both systems. I would like to think PP CS3 would give me the same RT performance. I understand dropped frames if the CPU struggles but the images look like crap rather than just dropping frames.
P4 is different from Pentium D. Northwood and Prescott are single core with HT. I assume you are talking about the Pentium D 651 with 775 socket, in which case you gave wrong information to start with.
The single drive is likely the culprit.
A Pentium D and a Dual Core Pentium 4 are the same thing. Why do you say it is my hard drive? Premiere Pro 1.0 rocks on both my systems. Are you trying to tell me that PP CS3 sucks compared to version 1.0 or do I have a problem.
PP 1.0 and PP CS3 are on the same system as I type this. PP 1.0 rocks PP CS3 sucks. Is this normal when upgrading from version 1.0 to CS3?
> do I have a problem.
Yes. And please refrain from double posting.
> A Pentium D and a Dual Core Pentium 4 are the same thing.
Incorrect. Look at the Intel site for further info. A dual core P4 has never existed. A Pentium D (wonder why they gave it a D designation? Dual perhaps?) has been in existence.
> PP 1.0 rocks PP CS3 sucks.
Most likely is OE or system setup.
I agree that the The Pentium D was the actual name but Pentium D CPUs are based of the P 4 netburst achitecture. That was stated even by Intel and many magazines. In other words they are not P2, P3 or even a Core 2 architecture. So yes I can call a Pentium D a Dual Core Pentium 4. That is infact what it is. I can not call it Dual Core Pentium 3. There is no dual core P3.
The last generation of Pentium D branded processors was the Presler identified by the product code 80553, and made of two 65 nm-process cores found also in Pentium 4 branded Cedar Mill CPUs. The Presler single package also comprised two single-core dies next to each other increasing its processing capability over single-core CPUs branded Pentium 4. The Presler was supported by the same chipsets as the Smithfield. It was produced using 65 nm technology similar to the Yonah. The Presler communicated with the system using an 800 MT/s FSB, and its two cores communicated also using the FSB, just as in the Smithfield. The Presler also included VT (Virtualization Technology, aka Vanderpool, although limited to the 9x0 models, and not in the 9x5 models), Intel 64, XD bit and EIST (Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology)[*]. The Presler was released in the first quarter of 2006 with a 2x2 MiB Level 2 cache. Its models included
If you want a system that performs well enough for clients to look over your shoulder to see rt peviews; get a better WS. Your system does not meet the MIN hw requirements listed on adobe's website, ie, dedicated 7200 rpm drive or raid 0 drive for hd. So; "My systems rock" is hardly true.
>I can call a Pentium D a Dual Core Pentium 4.
But that's not correct. There were differences enough that you should use the correct term when asked what CPU you have.
