poor performance on Macbook 2017

Hello,

I'm planning to move from iMovie to Premiere Elements 2018.

Installing the trial version was no problem but my first tests where very disappointing.

I dragged some clips (H.264) into the timeline and made some cuts, effects etc.

UI and features are all fine but working with the software is horrible.

Preview is shuttering even with small modifications.

Any ideas how to find out the bottle neck?

Best regards

Jens

Hi Jens,

in order to have a smooth preview, you have to render the clips first. Rendering is also neccessary when you have made some changes/edits.

Cheers

Hello Arndt,

thanks for the reply.

I understand that rendering might help but it is also the editing process ...
i.e. when I am going to drag a clip in the preview window (on video track 2 - picture in picture) to another position it takes up to 5 seconds before the clip frame follows my mouse cursor.

Rendering takes very long (up to 6 minutes for a 3 minutest timeline   how long will it take for a huge project?)

I am wondering if the reason for this performance issue could come from my iCloud config.

All folders are set (Preferences/Scratch Disks...) to the local SSD but there is still an Adobe Folder on my iCloud-Drive which is growing rapidly.
