Yes. It will run, albeit slowly. If you want to use it with CS5, limit yourself to DV, or - if you are the patient type - to HDV. Do not try to edit AVCHD and other demanding codecs. The CPU is not fast enough for those codecs and will be slower than molasses in winter. The ATI card does not help either and one wonders is your system meets the minimum requirements of at least TWO physically different 7200 RPM (e)SATA disks. Notice, partitioning will only degrade performance further.
So Mr Millaard I will have to buy a laptop with 2 hard drives???
I am stuck if so is the case,
I have two options
getting a HP laptop with
Intel Core i3-370M Processor (2.4 GHz, 3 MB L3 cache)
512 MB dedicated video RAM (ATI) one
RAM 3 GB DDR3
500 GB 7200 rpm SATA II Hard Drive
DELL XPS with i7 processor
2GB graphics card
500 GB hard
I just want to use that software for subtitling
Both Dell and HP are not very good with notebooks for editing work. For CS5 only Clevo/Sager have decent notebooks in the DTR category. A nice one can be had for around $ 3 K.
One can use lesser notebooks, for instance with an underpowered i3, if one accepts that for instance encoding a 1 hour timeline can take up to 100 times longer than a fast desktop. If a desktop can manage to encode a one hour timeline in around one hour, an i3 based notebook will at best take 100 hours for the same task. If that is acceptable to you, go ahead. Notice that it is advised not to use the computer for anything else than the encoding, so you may have to wait 4 or 5 days before you can use such an ill equipped notebook for other things. BTW, you need to keep it plugged in to the wall outlet all the time.
Portability/luggability comes at a price.
If you are talking desktops, both HP and Dell come with crippled BIOS, can not be overclocked, and they steal you blind on all modifications from the standard configuration. You are better off building yourself or get a reputed custom builder do it for you (at a price), like ADK.
others are out of my budget :-(
Is there any other product which adobe provides for editing subtitles, as I just want to work only with subtitles???
also I have never ever used premiere before so dont know much and if I purchase premiere will editing of subtitles also be equally slow.
I called DELL they were like their system(XPS) is very much compatible with premiere pro, it must be for selling their product...
So suggest me??? subtitling will also be equally slow???
any other product recommended by Adobe???
Do you only need subtitles? In that case Word might be an option. That runs ok on an i3.
Or do you also want to use video and overlay it with subtitles? If so, what codec and from what video camera in what format do you ingest?
Yes I want to use videos and overlay subtitles . These are not very high quality videos, only MPEG, AVI and general videos. I just need to overlay subtitles in some other languages apart from English, these are generally 5-10min videos.
Reread post #1. With DV and short clips with MPEG2 codec you will be OK.
hey thanx a lot...
I apprciate ur help
