I am running a PC with 8gb RAM, 1st gen i5 processor and plenty of hard disk space. I have Premiere Pro CS4 and have been editing 720 files for a couple of years.
I have a project which requires me to process some 1080 QT files from a Canon 5D and they are just knocking my machine over every time. It might not just be the file sizes though as the aspec of my machine should be able to handle them. I'm getting other things like the fan coming on and other programs going unresponsive.
Can anyone help? Surely can't be time for a new laptop?
