This is about my 5th week now and I am exhausted. I've contacted many different agents and each time they fix it it always seems to go back to being the same problem. There is a MAJOR lag in the playback which I have never had before. I use Premiere Elements 2018 and until recently I have never had any issues with it when I apply effects to it. The playback becomes unbarrable and it makes it impossible to edit not to mention takes 5x longer. With the help of my cousin we figured out that the CPUS are all being maxed out when the program is running. Can anyone tell me why? I'm hoping if I can fix tat I will be able to fix the problem.
