Did you import the tiffs individually, or as image sequences?
I import tifs individually and put them in their own sequences within Premiere. How would I make them specifically image sequences if that is something different?
Thanks, Jeff. I will replace those tiffs with numbered stills and see if that corrects the projects slowness.
Will importing these tiffs as numered stills significantly speed this up?
I don't yet know if this will assist with the crashing etc.. but I'll spend a few hours importing the stills in this fashion.
A follow up question. I noticed that when I imported an 81 frame sequence into the timeline and overlayed it on top of the 81 individual tifs(initially imported) the sequence is only 76 frames long instead of 81.
Do numbered sequences lose frames?
Edit: Disregard, I realize I had five addition frames added for some reason to the initial series of individial tiffs.

Pr assumes a frame rate of 29.97 fps for image sequences (which have no
native frame rate). Use Interpret Footage to set the frame rate that
I'm halfway switching the individual tifs over to numbered sequences but still am experiencing crashes from time to time.
Maybe I'll notice a difference when I'm totally done.
Does switching the individual tifs over to numbered sequences actually speed up performance?
The crashing could still be due to a corrupt project file but I have no way of knowing. A much faster computer may
be in order but I want to rule out other things first.
Project slow and crashes, can be a really pisser. Goto 'knowledgebase', key "optimise xp cs3" and choose the Tech Note that instructs you on how to optimise, optimise and Project slow and crashes problems usually no more.
Thanks, Fighting Sticks. I am looking into that.
