    CS4 with HD footage from Canon HV30 - will new CPU help?

    Prizm4 Level 1

      Hi guys,

       

      I've just dumped an hour of Mini HDV footage onto my system, and the playback constantly stutters - the video pauses for a second at a time. My first guess was my CPU, but now that I've read other posts here, it may just be CS4.  I'm using Windows 7 Release Candidate 64-bit.  I have 4GB RAM and an Intel E2180 CPU.   I was thinking of upgrading to an Intel E8400, but maybe not if CS4 is just buggy.

       

      Any thoughts?
