This is my first post on here, so please go easy on me - thanks!
I'm in the process of upgrading from Premiere 1.5.1 to CS5. I've downloaded the trial which unfortunately won't let me try out HDV to test whether my system is up to it!
However, even in DV, i'm having a few playback problems - It stutters on the monitor screen even without effects. Also, I can't seem to get the video to playback through my video camera as I could from the same computer on 1.5.1 when I hit return - Does this feature not work with the trial? Or am I doing something wrong? It captured ok.
I know my system isn't the best, but it's better than the minimum spec required and should at least play DV fine. I have:
AMD Phenom 9500 Quadccore - 6 GB RAM - Just updated to Windows 7 64 bit - Geforce 8400 graphics.
Any advice would be appreciated, especially with getting the video output to work so I can test it before I commit to the full purchase.
Aha - I've just noticed the little output button under the monitor!! And
i've got it to work!
Any advice on my system would be good though - Is it up to editing HDV? Cheers
The system should be okay for editing HDV. You will want to have one drive for your OS and Adobe applications and at least one (preferably 2) drive for your media. Other than that it should be fine.
Hope this helps,
It won't give stellar performance, but it should be OK.
