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!!
Get more drives and clean the existing ones.
Once your fill rate on a disk goes over 60%, performance goes down rapidly.
CS5.5 will not help till you have cleaned up your disks. Make sure your disks are not filled beyond 50% of their capacity.
Will do. Thanks very much for the advice!
