I have Premiere Pro Cs3 and have a production thats about 10 minutes long. I have about 580 items in bins, about 400 of them being video clips from the Cam. We purchased MainConcept plugin for Premiere to import and export the footage (http://www.mainconce...dex.php?id=7862).

So the problem is that I started editing my footage to a voice over, and it ran perfectly OK. Then once I got to the end of the video....which is like 10 minutes long...While putting in the last few clips...Premiere started just closing and telling me system was low on memory..or just closing or freezing..no real consistency. Keep in mind this started happening once i hit the ten minute mark.

So we bought like 4 Gb's of memory and bought a better video card....still didn't help. Now it takes like 5 minutes to open the project, and I can't export it out of premiere..i have to export 1 minute chunks (i cant even export full HD,i have to Encode it out). Then I import those into thier own fresh premiere file, THEN export that...and I have to encode that too.

What is the best solution to this issue?!!

Thanks in advance guys I know this is alot of reading, but I know i cant be the only one with this problem. I have searched everywhere and no-one has posted these issues.

Heres a link to the video...

I'm not sure how much difference it makes, but is your footage on a separate hard drive? Or is all your media and programs on the same hd?

Also, since you've recently installed some new memory, make sure the cards are installed in descending order, according to their capacity.

Cleaning up your desktop also saves a ton of memory. Just putting that out there ;)
