To start off, I'll give you my specs:
Intel Core 2 Duo
4 GB of Ram
Adobe Premiere CS3 version 3.2
Adobe Premiere used to run completely smooth for me. For months, everything was fine. Today, out of nowhere, it has started to lag. I have not changed any system settings or any settings within Premiere. However, for some odd reason, it lags 3-4 seconds every time i try to play my timeline. It never did this before. I thought that maybe I had to start rendering my timelines, so I did, and it didn't fix it at all; I've still got the lag.
Now, I know 3-4 seconds isn't a long time... but it's quite annoying when I'm in a rush editing something (this lag really adds up when you're doing short/quick cuts). I also shouldn't be experiencing it now, considering I never did before.
Does anybody know why it's doing this out of nowhere?
