Using a Canon Vixia HFS100, I film/edit at AVCHD 1080i30 (60i) square pixels, which is 16:9 interlaced 29.97fps 48khz audio and have no problems
I am using Panasonic HMC-150. I wonder which settings I need to adjust? Premiere is using 9 meg of ram.
Here are my virtual memory settings:
Automatically manage page size is checked
C drive is system managed
video raid and 2 other drives have no page files
Total page size:
Do I need to make adjustments here?
Set your page file size to a static size of 12 or 18 GB on your raid0 and remove your current dynamice file, then defrag all your drives.
Do you have indexing and compreesion turned off on your disk drives?
Bill, I don't know. Can you tell me how?
Harm, how do I remove my current dynamic file?
Via Control Panel/Advanced/Performance Settings/Advanced/Virtual memory or something close to it. First set a static file on your raid0, then remove the dynamic file from C and reboot when asked. Then defrag.
Thanks Harm, but here is the part I do not understand: I do not see a file on my c drive called "dynamic". I can't find it so I can't delete it.
Ok, I made a static pagefile on my video raid drive and I turned off indexing on all my drives.
I still get a little jitter on my clips. This jitter happens during pans and such, as if the processor can't keep up.
If this is not to be expected then where else should I look to make changes?
Do you see that jitter, when played in the camera, hooked to a TV?
No, not at all.

Above are my results from the benchmark tests. I am not the best, but closer to the top than the bottom. My disk i/o is a 106. Could that be my problem?
I am using the Intel onboard raid 0 controller.
Also, I have 2 computers with very similiar componets and they both have this jitter. The computers are very stable.
I'm trying to figure this out.
I suspect either inverted field order, or progressive footage interpreted as interlaced are the problem.
I've got a similar set up and am having the same issues but worse. I just got an HMC 150 as well, went to review some snowboarding footage yesterday and premiere can only play clips smoothly for a second, then it starts jittering and progressively gets worse. I've noticed my computer getting slower lately, so i cleaned up jmy C drive to less than half full, but no success with speed problems running multiple adobe programs at once, mainly premiere and after effects. The computer seems to play the clips just fine through windows media player, so it's got to be something with adobe. I also get a "not enough memory" error with illustrator when opening files, as well as an error upon startup telling me that the microsoft "NET Framework" is invalid or something. I built this computer in the fall, not really knowing what I'm doing...and my performance is now suffering, it should be much much quicker. Any help is greatly appreciated!
Harm, I can't seem to find "advanced" when I go into control panel, where are you talking about?
Taking a quick look at your benchmark results for a non-overclocked i7-950 with a two disk RAID 0 they are respectable but playback AVCHD is can be very CPU intensive. Here is a single track 1920 x 1080 AVCHD showing the CPU usage with my hex-core i7-980X @ 4.2 GHz which is slightly better than twice as fast as your current setup. This was with a red line in the Timeline. Apparently I had applied a non-MPE accelerated effect.
After I rendered the timeline (mostly green or a little yellow) this is what happens to the CPU usage
Also notice since preview files are now being read the disk usage has increased slightly. I both cases memory my usage is ~8 GB out of 24 GB.
If I had your system I would overclock a bit and added a little more memory AND try changing your Playback resolution to full (so the CPU is not scaling)
Edit, do not understand why the other two images are not showing I will put them in the next "reply"
Thanks for the ideas Bill.
My second system has 24 gig of ram. Doesn't seem to help much. I am playing back at full resolution. My guess is that overclocking might help, but to be honest I am hesitant to try something so advanced.
The jitter is slight, not repeatable, happens every few seconds when the image is panning a lot. To me, it sounds like a cpu issue.
yes, thank you! I'm trying to run the benchmark test, but I keep getting an error message when I go to open the statistics.vbs file, says file not found. I've attempted this twice now, followed the directions completely...any ideas why this is happening?
>when I go to open the statistics.vbs file, says file not found
When you use Windows Explorer (or whatever the Mac equivalent, if you have a Mac) is the file there?
If the file is there, and you can't use it, you have a permissions problem
For Windows, search http://search.microsoft.com/search.aspx?mkt=en-US&setlang=en-US to learn about permission settings
I have both mac and pc..
pc is my editing rig, and it's not running even close to what it should be!
By explorer you are referring to the "finder" correct? The statistics file is there but it says path not found...I'm in the process of running the test a third time, i did notice that I did not change the the one file output to ntsc widescreen the other times, hopefully that is my problem
success! These are my scores "414","586","446","30"
Time to compare
Intel i7 930 2.8 ghz
evga gtx 470
ocz 12gb ram
Time to tune your system. These are the worst results I have seen for an i7-930 ever and the first system ever to suffer a penalty from using hardware MPE over software MPE. The script we use is very simplistic in nature, but because of that, also susceptible to human errors. Please excuse both Bill and me for being only amateurs and hobbyists for not providing a more professional tool, but I suspect there was an OE somewhere along the route. Please print out the instructions in the Readme.txt file and follow them to the letter and then retest. If your results are again disappointing, we will contact you off forum.
Ouch, thats not something to be proud of!! Ran the tests again and they were very similar, the only thing I did wrong before was forget to change the MPE from Hardware to software on the second run. Here are the results
Output "software" - "410","574","446","506"
Output- MPE - "410","574","446","29"
Something is very wrong. Is there somewhere I can look at that tells me exactly what all my settings for premiere should be for optimal performance? I have no idea what I'm doing here...
I don't think Premiere is the problem... you need to tune your computer

wow...thank you for the extensive list. I guess I know what I'll be doing for the rest of the week : /
Ok, I really don't think this has anything to do with too much junk on my computer...I have very little excess files on my C drive other than my programs and downloads...around 40% is used. This computer worked great, and now it doesn't. I get a areca raid driver error that is interfering with boot/shutdown/sleep but that's all I can figure out. My processor score on my comp performace has dropped from a 7.5 to 4.8, that's unnacceptable. What all could be affecting this? Should I just reformat my C drive and start over?
And...my disk data transfer rate is only a 5.9...is this normal for a 10,000 rpm velocirapter? All my other scores besides processor are above 7.2
The WEI is pretty meaningless. All Velociraptors score only 5.9. It requires command line execution to test other drives, to get results like this:
That you CPU score dropped from 7.5 to 4.8 may be indicative of a hardware problem. It is not normal for it to drop like that. What has changed in your system recently?
I haven't done anything physical to it besides check to make sure everything is installed correctly. I seem to be having memory issues, even though my memory subscore is at 7.7 and the computer is recognizing that I have 12gb installed. For example, when I open a document in illustrator, I get a dialogue box saying not enough memory. Anything in particular I can check for?
