I'm new to this forum and have been searching for over a year for a solution. A while back I built a video editing system for my father in-law. At the time they had just come out with Adobe Premier Pro 2.0 and the system I built was to their optimal specs but he is actualy running Premier Pro 1.5. Now here's the reason for the post. System build: dual xeon 3.0Ghz, Asus NCCH-DL mobo, 2gb ddr400 RAM, 6800 Ultra video, 550w ps, canopus DV Storm, XP Pro OS. It renders slower than the previous system with a P4 2.6Ghz proc. and 1Gb of Ram, XP Home. Please, any addvice would be greatly appreciated. Bios, software or whatever you think it might be and sadly enough there really is no budget for a new system. This is his lively hood and I was or still am so confident it should improve his performance drastically. Please help.
Very strange. Your build *should* perform better than his previous P4 system. My only idea is that there might be a driver problem somewhere in the new system preventing it from performing how it should. Try updating or reinstalling the drivers.
