I have updated my drivers and changed my screen resolution and tried rendering video as was suggested. Not only does rendering taking forever and hog resources but it wasn't helpful and this product is still choppy and slow.
I have a Toshiba Sattelite L505 laptop
237GB free disk space
my graphics card is AMD M880G w/ ATI Mobility Radeon HD4200
What type of processor does that computer have and how fast does it run?
Also what kind of camcorder did that video come from?
Premiere Elements requires at least a 2.6 ghz dual core processor to perform well. For editing AVCHD video, it requires a quad core processor.
The processor is an AMD Turion 2 Dual Core 2200mhz
My processor is too slow. Camera is Sony CX100
That sucks, I'm out a $100!
