First, two questions:
What are the HD source files?
Next, please tell us about your system's RAM and I/O Sub-system, i.e. your HDD's, their size, speed, controller type, how they are allocated and the amount of free space.
Thank you for the info, and good luck,
3.25 GB of RAM
151GB of free space on my C drive where I use PE4
225 GB of free space on my external hard drive where I import and store my videos.
The videos are imported from a mini dv stot on a Sony Handycam HDR-FX7 / HDV 1080i
I believe it 32 bit
I don't know what sub-system stuff is??? Does this info help??
That does help. The I/O Sub-system is your HDD's (Hard Disk Drives) and their setup.
You should be able to edit this footage, though it might be a bit slow, being HD. You will want to set up an HD Project, for a miniDVD camera.
This ARTICLE might free up some resources for editing. There are also some great articles on setting up and optimizing your system, in the FAQ section on the right of the main forum page. Those would be very helpful too.
