Hi. I ordered a new computer which will be delivered this week. I bought PE8 to use on it so I could burn HD video from a Canon Vixia HFS10 camcorder. I just noticed, though, that it says the system requirements for PE8 include a 3.0 GHz processor. My processor is only a 2.66 GHz. But it is an I7-920 quad core processor with 9 GB of RAM. Anybody know if I am going to have problems burning blu-rays with this? I am going to run Windows 7. Thanks.
The processor speed listed in the minimum requirements is for a single core (Pentium) processor. Your quad core will likely runs several times faster than that and should be more than powerful enough to work with Premiere Elements.
The bigger issue is that you list 6 gigs of RAM, which seems to imply that you'll be using the 64-bit version of Windows 7. There you might run into problems. Premiere Elements is a 32-bit application, and some people are experiencing problems trying to interface with 64-bit drivers for it on Windows 7.
Thank you, Steve.
