Both FCPX and PP seem to slow down very quickly there. More so than I'd expect. I wonder though how hard they are working your system to achieve these results?

I don't have a mac to try this on but have you ever monitored RAM, CPU usage and computer temperature when using these two? I did some very non scientific tests on my PC running the same footage through PP5.5 and Edius. I wasn't surprised that PP was chocking on footage Edius happily played at full speed but I was surprised that PP was running my computer massively harder. I forget exact numbers but it was using a lot more ram, a lot more CPU (at least a few full cores worth) and the internal temperature of the computer was significantly higher. All while giving me blocky playback.

I've never used Premiere much since then as I figure the easier my NLE is on my PC the longer my PC will last- no idea if that's true mind, it just seems like common sense.
