    Is Premiere CS4  good enough for bigger projects?


      I'm working in a company where we have 5 Premiere Edit stations. They are fine when working with small projects, like news and small features. BUT... when we use them for documentaries with durations over 40 minutes Premiere starts to crash.

      It crashes during:
      1. Save and autosave (often)
      2. Exporting OMF (almost always)
      3. and randomly (not so often)

      It gets really bad if we have many jpeg stills footage in the project.

      We also have Avid editstations that we have no problems with. The computers we use are all DELL wich scale from low to high-end PCs

      Are there any solutions to these problems, or should we just avoid using Premiere to bigger projects?
