uncompressed mpg files
This is impossible. MPG is heavily conpressed by definition.
1.does it matter if i'll install win7 32 and not 64?
2. when u said about "better source meterial" u were speaking about exporting?
because what i asked is if in the job itself i can make it work faster with HD videos without rendering all the time (which take hours)
OK, let's step back just a moment. Rendering is just for playback smoothness. As you point out, with your source material, the playback is not the best, so you Render to view that. Now, you have smooth playback. That is your stated workflow.
Your problem is coming in, when you add Effects. That WILL require another Render for smooth playback, BUT you can limit things to just a small portion of your Timeline for each of these operations with the WAB (Work Area Bar). Set it over the Clip that you are working on at the time, and then when you hit Enter, ONLY that small section will be Rendered. Do this only as is necessary.
As Harm points out, the actual speed of Rendering will depend on your CPU and a bit on the I/O sub-system, i.e. your HDD's, their speed, etc. An OS change will not speed up your CPU, or your I/O, but might give a tiny bit of improvement as it could possibly use more RAM (do not recall your system specs. from up-thread). That would be slight, IMHO.
Yes. In the next couple of months Win7-32 will no longer run with the new version of PR, which will be 64 bit only. Second with 32 bit memory will be limited to 4 GB max and for a better editing experience you need at least 8.
Better source material means no XVid, no DivX, no iPhone, no YouTube or other crap that was never intended for editing, only watching.
If you use proper material from a video camera, there will not be a red bar and no rendering is required, apart from effects or transitions. The fact that your whole timeline needs rendering means you either have the wrong sequence setting or you are using the wrong sourve material.
thank you both for the answers
well i have sony webbie mhs-pm1 camera and i have couple of movies that i've shoted
and i tried each one of those editing modes:
so maybe im using bad editing mode?
anyway in all of them the smoothness of the playback is working like crap
(and i didn't mentioned yet about adding effects, that is much more crummy)
about limiting portions in the WAB i know and i do that, the problem is it also takes much time.
because in the begining i must render the entire video otherwise i can't watch the playback preview
on the other hand, when i took my sister's wedding DVD-R,
i took the VOB files and changed them to MPG and everything worked perfect, even when i've added effects and everything
no renderings were needed at all.
So what can i do that the playbacks
of the HD videos from the camera will work smooth in PR?
Your system is underpowered for that kind of material. Maybe if you try an AVCHD anamorphic preset, the results may be slightly better, but the Sony site is not clear about the codec. Anyway, it is not HDV. Hope that works better then up to now, but it will still be at a snail's pace.
CS3 does not support AVCHD, so no preset.
In the sequence settings. And I repeat: Uncompressed MPEG does not exist. Just as a submarine can not fly at 30,000 feet.
AVCHD is a beast to edit and requires a lot of muscle from your system. Apart from that, it requires CS4. Ann was right about that. But upgrading to CS4 alone will not cut it. You need that hardware as well.
But i dont know anything about CS4
i studied cs3 and accustomed it
is it much dissimilar than cs3?

CS4 is not THAT different from CS3. Other than doing everything Export related through AME (Adobe Media Encoder, which is now a stand-alone, though can be launched from within PrPro), a difference in how one Exports a still Frame, Targeting multiple Tracks and some additional support, like VOB and AVCHD, things will not be that different.
Curt Wrigley's book, Adobe Classroom in a Book Premiere Pro CS4, Adobe Press, does a great job of covering the differences.
just what do u mean exactly by - Exports a still Frame, Targeting multiple Tracks?
