Be sure that your computer meets system requirements. You need to check this in order to have the best possible results with Premiere Pro.

 

Find out right now here: Premiere Pro System Requirements


Why are system requirements important with Premiere Pro?
With Premiere Pro, system requirements are much more stringent and important to consider than other content creation applications because it is displaying many frames of large sized, highly compressed video frames 24 times per second or more. Add on the effects, titles, and sound, you begin to realize that a lot of computer power is required to do these things very well. 

Knowing system requirements might also help you in understanding performance issues with an underpowered computer. Ascertaining areas of weakness with your hardware or workflow can help you get back on track more quickly when troubleshooting problems.

 

What if I do not meet system requirements?
If you have an underperforming machine, it is very difficult to work at the speed you wish to. It is first advised to purchase new hardware to meet, or better yet, exceed the requirements for HD and 4K footage, referred to in system requirements.

 

If you are not meeting requirements, but are not too far off, you can usually still work, but at a more limited capacity. You have to make compromises (proxy workflow, transcode to an intermediate codec) should you do so. If your computer is over five years old, look into replacing the computer.

 

Have an underpowered computer or laptop? See the following video.

 

 

Can I edit with minimum system requirements?
All that said, only the minimum system requirements are listed. That means that you should plan to exceed system requirements in order to have a smooth workflow. Note that there are two tiers of system requirements on the current page for Premiere Pro, one for HD footage and fairly short timelines, and one for 4K footage and longer form sequences.

 

Do I need hardware in addition to system requirements?

If that weren't enough, you need to have your system's hardware configured properly, mainly, you need to have more than one high speed hard drive or RAID array for any single system. System requirements also do not offer enough advice as far as your media storage goes. You'd be wise to make sure you have at least one additional hard drive for your media other than your OS.
