I am building both blue ray and DVDs for some time now and love Encore as a programme. I have cs5 master suite.I use Photoshop to change the custom menus etc, but each time I come back to a project it can take up to 6 or 7 minutes for it to load completely.
I have 4 gig of ram and am running a quad core with plenty of room on my hard drive.Even if i delete cookies etc. it still seems to take forever. The projects eventually load, but it has become a real pain.I notice that some of the changed menus still exist- not sure that I want to delete these but by doing so will this help??Sometimes I get a message saying to save immediately as I have run out of ram- I'm almost certain that this is tied up with it but not sure how to fix this either.
Load up on RAM. 4GB may seem like a lot compared to 5+ years ago...but these days you need tons. Get at least 12GB...or if you can afford more, go for it. I stepped into a new job recently with a Mac with 6GB of RAM which would act up if running too many apps at the same time. I loaded it up with 12GB and it's a night / day difference...all good now!
