    Premiere Pro is slow and crashes. Is my system the problem?

      Bottom line:

      What can I do to make Adobe Premiere run more smoothly on my computer? Once I do any kind of simple modification, such as color correction, I cannot preview unless I render, and rendering takes an exceedingly long time. I also experience frequent program crashes.


      Here's my system specs:

      Mac OS X Version 10.5.8

      Processor: 2 x 2.8 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon

      Memory: 10 GB 800 MHz DDR2 FB-DIMM



      Adobe Master Suite CS4


      **Two of my three drives are really full. My documents drive has 15.27GB available, another drive has only 2.79GB available, and the last has 45GB available. Perhaps this contributes to the speed issue?


      Here's what I figure my options are:

      1) Upgrade to CS5.5


      2) Clear more space on my drives


      What's your advice? Is it my system or is this just how Adobe Premiere Pro runs? Do you believe I'd have more success with CS5.5?


      Your advice is much appreciated!!
