Default My new Corsair Pro not handling video editing well

Hey all!

First post here. PC noob and professional wedding filmmaker. I purchased the corsair - one pro desktop - intel core i7 - 16gb memory - nvidia geforce gtx 1080 - 480gb ssd + 2tb hdd from Best Buy last week primarily for video editing in Adobe Premiere. I used to use an Asus laptop but it's old and wasn't performing very smoothly.

Anyway, with my new Corsair Pro, I have been noticing some lag time while editing just basic stuff. No more than 3 layers of clips in the timeline.. This is frustrating because I feel this PC should easily handle Premiere.

Anyone have any suggestions for me? thanks!

Did you save the program on the SSD or HDD. The SSD would be faster.

Also need to know what you're trying to edit. If you have three layers of 4K video, no amount of CUDA is going to make that easy to scrub, and certain filters/effects can cause substantial processing time.

Definitely check your storage situation, too. The HDD should really only be used for inactive storage if you're editing video; any video you're actively editing should be on the SSD.

Hey guys!

So, I am editing simple 1080p footage on 3 layers or less. No heavy Fx either.

I am editing using footage that is on my external harddrive. The project file is also saved to this external hard drive. Is this the issue? Again, PC noob here.

Is the external drive USB? If so, 2.0 or 3.0?
Have you edited items right off of the USB drive before?

If the data's on your 2 TB HDD, move it to the 480 GB SSD.

If you don't know about it - look up the 3-2-1 backup strategy - especially for any data that's your livelihood!
