    Default Commy still too slow at rendering

    Im running a dell machine with a 3ghz pentium 4. 1 gig of ram and i have 120gb harddrive. But im impatient and need to speed things up even more.

    Any tips. Maybe an external firewire hardrive or more ram?

    Centurion: if you've defragged your video drive and cleared memory of background crap, I don't think there's anything you can buy that'll make it faster. Video editing is a fundamentally, inherently slow process and not for the impatient...
    Premiere Pro, Encore, Photoshop, Ulead VS6, WXP Pro, Core 2 Duo, 2GB, 2 x 250GB SATA3 drives, 2 x 250GB USB 2 external drive, DVD writer, GeForce 7300 GS 256MB

    The biggest fool can ask questions that the wisest man cannot answer...

    Have you got two hard drives, or are you just using the system drive to store your video?

    I have two seperate hd's. One system and one vid capture. I suspect it because there filling up now so I reckon its time for an external drive or ridding my vid cap drive for a larger one. Just as a matter of interest is there a way to tell premier to use a certain amount of ram, ie 80% of it for rendering?

    More RAM will help.
    A 3rd HD to render out to.
    Raid but ideally 3 raids - 1 OS, 1 media(capture) & 1 Render.

    You will always have to wait so learn patience. Even on highend systems you have to wait.
