I'm on the latest Adobe Premiere CC and I have a pretty solid system I think but I'm still having freezing issues when I'm editing.
Editing System Windows 10 64bit i7-5820K 6Core 3.3GHz EVGA GeForce GTX 970 4GB SSC Gaming ACX 2.0+ 16GB DDR4 Ram 512GB Samsung 950 NvME System Drive Assets are on a Raid 0 Array of 2 5TB Drives I have a cache drive setup on a Samsung 850 SSD
Everything is fine when I start but as I add effects and video to the sequence it starts to slow down to the point where I have to purge video memory occasionally or it just outright crashes. Nothing major as far as effects. I use the Lumetri color effects a lot and I use Red Giant plugins like the DeNoiser II plugin.
In fact the Denoiser plugin is pretty much useless during editing. I usually add it before rendering. It drives the render time up big time as well.
I'm open to any suggestions for upgrading this machine to make my editing smoother. I thought about adding a NAS to my network and offloading the 5tb drives to that, to archive footage not actively editing. I would then replace that raid0 with a new raid 0 with 4 ssds. Probably only 2tb for actively editing footage but it would speed the read and write speeds up dramatically.
I back everything up to cold storage drives now too.
I will say my CPU does get up to 100% when I'm watching this. I just don't see it getting maxed out on this little stuff but maybe that's the problem. I only work in 1080i5994 currently.
Hopefully I dont have to replace the system as I just bought it last year but it's really annoying trying to edit like this.
