So, for the past month I've had no problems editing with premiere. Then last night while editing on a much smaller project than normal, (same file types) the program started slowing down, considerably. Now, any keystroke puts the program into "not responding" and it takes minutes to select clips. I've restarted the computer, program, and looked at my cpu usage in the task manager. While the program is running, and then not responding, the computer is not stressing at all, 14% cpu, 31% memory.
Im running an i7 firstname.lastname@example.orgGHz, 8gb ram, with ati hd 5770.
What i dont understand is why I've had no issues until last night, and now I cant use the product at all. My After Effects still works fine at least.
Any one else have this issue or know of a fix?
Check the size of your project file? Premiere has a bug where the project file bloats to sizes that will keep your projects from opening. The work around for now is if you can get it to open to delete all your preview and render files and then re-save. It should bring your project file down to a manageable size.
Along with TClark's questions, try doing a New Project, and test it out.
There have been reports of Project files bloating, and then not working properly. Adobe is working on that. Seems that many/most/all of those came with CS4 Projects converting to CS5. Was there any CS4 to CS5 conversion anywhere in this workflow?
