    Hey, I’m about to start filming my first movie in October, I’m gonna edit using my new computer, It’s a 3.4ghz, 1024 ram, 250gb hard drive..etc. I started making little short movies and editing them in together and adding music…just to get the hang of editing. The program I’m using is Adobe Elements. I guess I should have bought Adobe Premiere Pro..cause when I add media, After I add so much it bogs the computer down big time. Is this my computer, or the editing software or what? I’ve been adding the short movies that I made with my camera from my hard drive to the eding software. When I edit my feature, I’ll be taking the video straight from the camera through the firewire port. Any advice? I copied a full feature dvd onto my hard drive and added it to the timeline in Adobe Elements and It didn’t bog down at all. Should I delete everything on my computer to make it a scrictly editing machine..or what? Thanks.

    What is the source and properties of your source video that bogs things down?

    It is normal for Pro and Elements to conform the audio files right after import and this can cause things to slow down for a few minutes.
    One concern is that you have only one hard drive…with 3 tasks to do at the same time; run the OS and Elemets, read video files and read conformed audio files. A second hard drive for captured video might speed things up.
