    Premiere Pro painfully slow or crashes while encoding on reasonable system?


      Hi Folks, I'm new to the forum and new to premiere pro. I am having a real issue with encoding videos. If I have any fx on like Magic Bullet Looks then the media encoder says it will take around 3 hours for an 8 minute video (h.264 HD for youtube) but my system seems to crash before it finishes encoding (some times blue screen, some times encoder error message).  If I have no fx it still takes a couple of hours for an 8 minute video. This seems like an excessive amount of time, even for encoding my AVCHD files, which I know are notoriuosly slow to encode. I have the latest updates for Looks & PP.


      My system:


      Windows 7 Ultimate

      Intel Q9550

      Asus P5Q-EM

      GTX 480 unlocked for CUDA

      16GB 800mhz DDR2 RAM

      500GB Western Digital HD


      Which I would have thought was pretty decent for video encoding!


      Anyway any help or suggestions on how to speed things up and maybe stop crashes welcomed.
