I am using an eMachine Aspire 5738 series. It has an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 graphics card
I've started work on a 15 minute video (1080i AVCHD) on Premiere CS5 and its lagging pretty badly to the point that the zoom on the timeline won't respond.
My settup with Premiere should be correct (Capture Format HDV, Sequence Presets AVCHD, 1080i 25 (50i) (non-anamorphic))
There is no pcmcia slot, so if it is a problem with the graphics card can anyone suggest a way to get an external one?
