i have a 2.4mHz Athlon, 256MB Ram, an ATI Excalibur-dualhead, and an firwire-interface. I used to cut with premiere 6.5 and i always had a proper running footage after i rendered all the clips - everything ran prefectly. Now that i´ve upgraded to Premiere Pro i am very dissapointed. Even if i render the whole sequence, the footage doesn´t run smooth - it looks like it only plays back every 3rd or fourth frame. Even if i switch to a lower quality or a smaller size the footage doesn´t run any better. I can´t understand the discussion about the realtime-playback, cuz i see that it doesn´t even work after rendering the clips.
Can anybody help me ? Is there anything i need to setup in premiere, or is my computer a big piece o´shit ?
