    1080p/720p HD .MOV files from Kodak Zi8 lagging in CS4

      So, I have done a lot of research on this topic and though others have this same problem, nobody seems to have an answer other than "your computer is too slow." So if that be the case here, please dont say anything at all, my laptop has edited 1080p HD video in CS4 flawlessly before.  Here's the specs: 2.53 GHz Duo Core, 4 GB of RAM, 320 GB hd w/ 80 GB free @ 7200rpm, ATI Radeon HD  3650 w/ 512mb of memory.

       

      Steps I've taken so far:

       

      Converted video to mp4 files in Quicktime, videos still lag (in timeline and encoded)

       

      Converted video to standard definition to use as proxy files, no lag with proxies, but once I revert to the originals and encode, the final video is still choppy.

       

      I'm out of ideas...
