The only thought I have is that your 8400 might be too old to handle this job efficiently, and things are getting messed up. You might consider upgrading to a more recent 400 or 500 series nVidia card.
I can't guarantee that'll solve the issue, but if nothing else, RG effects should render a whole lot faster.
Also, how much defragmented free space do you have on the HDD, where your Scratch Disks are located?
Thank u Mr. Jim for the quick reply,
I am having the idea about 8400, m also purchasing GTX 480 in the next week, but in this situation I cannot edit the project? its really very urgent, now trouble increased, even rendered footage is not playing in the viewer window...,
This is entirely new problem m facing as m losing my rendered video previews also.
Thank u Bill sir for quick reply,
I am having 4 partitions on my 1 tb basic hdd, there is 175.5 GB free space on the disk, and my scratch disk and project located on the said drive (175.5 GB) drive...
Using partitions in the editing HDD's can cause real bottlenecks, as the heads are being directed to be in several locations at once - the OS thinks that it is dealing with multiple physical HDD's. Timeouts can occur. This ARTICLE will give you a bit more background. I am not saying that the partitions ARE the cause of the failed Rendering, but only one possibility.
You are trying to keep up with Formula 1 cars, using your granny's 50 year old bicycle, that has no gears. Quite an uphill fight.
Your source material is difficult, see here: Adobe Forums: System requirements for CS5
Your PC is underpowered, below minimum requirements, further degraded by the use of partitions on a possibly heavily polluted system and would be around 40 times slower than a fast system if the system met minimum requirements, was properly tuned and had a better video card. Now it is probably around 60 x slower.
In your case, the system has the same uphill fight as you would have on that bicycle. Likely the system just gives up after the first few yards.
You definitely need additional disk drives.
Why don't you try eliminating the MB denoiser as a potential problem (could be drivers for CS5.5). If that then works ok, try using the Premiere denoiser.
Thank u Bill sir for ur valuble information. I figured it out and I am updating my system as advised.
Thank u once again.
Thank u harm sir for sharing very important article.
Respected community members,
It will be very nice if any one suggest me Graphic card to update and overcome abovementioned issue:
I am planning to purchase GTX 560 ti, but m nt sure weather it will be successfully installed on my motherboard. I am trying to contact Nvidia for 1 basic question that will GTX 560 ti accelrate my premiere pro cs 5.5 CUDA but not getting the answer. (even I searched on Nvidia and Adobe's website for getting updated list of supported card but I did'nt find it.
here is detailed spec of my pc
Motherboard : ASUS P5P43TD
Yesterday I installed more 4 GB ram, now 16 GB installed ram
1.5 TB drives.
Your suggestion is highly appreciated.
Thank u 4 taking time to read this, and THANK U in advance for ur valuable help......
Thank u Mr. Bill
Now planning to get 7200 RPM harddrive which will have 2 partitions only. All projects will be on dat disk.
As I am updating my machine, Any addition suggestions will be highly appreciated.
1. Do not partition disk drives
2. The GTX560 Ti will work in your motherboard While Adobe does not have it on the "supported" list many people are using it and it is probably Best-Bang-for-the-Buck. You will have to add it to the Adobe file cuda_supported_cards.txt. Look at our Premiere Pro BenchMark (PPBM5) results
I don't think the problem is your machine at all. Yes, your machine is slow, but that should make it process slowly, not crash. Crashing is usually the result of either faulty components (usually memory corruption) or buggy software.
Does your sequence crash when you disable the Magic Bullet effect(s)? If not, then are you sure you've upgraded to the latest update of the magic bullet software you're using? Have you checked with Magic Bullet that the version you're using is certified for use with CS5/CS5.5?
Thank u for reply,
Yes there is no problem with machin but it is slow, due to very low graphic card, I am upgrading it very soon.
Nope my sequence does'nt crash if I turned off MB effects, I have the updated new software, which is OK for CS 5 or 5.5.
Thank u for previous Help, yesterday I just installed Zotac Geforce GTX 470, still m in trouble, there are few issues regarding CUDA acceleration.
1) I installed new graphic card and its driver yesterday itself, after the installation I started reinstalling my adobe Production Premium but It showed that my system, (specifically After Effects, Premiere Pro Photoshop etc.) not up to the requirements, its strange as listed on adobe PrPro website I purchased the said GTX 470 and getting the message that its not upto requirement.
My system is
Mother Board ASUS P5P43TD, 12 GB RAM, GTX 470, 1.5 TB HD
2) somehow I unlock the cuda acceleration with the help of Studio 1 Production website. Is there any other driver for cuda acceleration?
3) I am trying to export my project with QT but after completing 25% or so, machine shuts down automatically. I tried exporting file to my root drive but it wouldnt work at all.
Please help me
Thank for ur time
Thanking u in advance....
I concur with the previous poster; I think that when your system is beyond slow trying to do something intensive (but is fine when it's not), or it shuts down when you're trying to render, you probably have a heat problem with your CPU. Intel CPUs slow down to protect themselves when they're too hot, and many computers will shut down if their BIOS detects that the CPU or the internal system temp is too high. Run a CPU temp program while you try to render and see how hot your CPU gets. If it gets above 70C, then something isn't right and you should re-do your cooling setup.
