How to Make Premiere CS5 Run Faster


Premiere Pro CS5 is a video editing program developed by Adobe. According to Adobe’s marketing pitch for the software, Premiere Pro CS5 is designed to “let you edit faster with true native format support.” If you have Premiere Pro CS5 software installed on your computer and you want to make it run faster, based on Adobe’s technical specifications for the product, there are a few adjustments you can make to your computer to optimize the application’s performance.

  • Install a supported NDIVIA graphics card into your computer. Adobe routinely evaluates third-party hardware for compatibility with Adobe programs. Based on this evaluation, Adobe has found the following graphics cards support the best performance results when using the GPU-accelerated features with the Premier Pro CS5 software:

    GeForce GTX 285 (Windows and Mac OS)
    GeForce GTX 470 (Windows)
    GeForce GTX 570 (Windows)
    GeForce GTX 580 (Windows)
    Quadro FX 3700M (Windows)
    Quadro FX 3800 (Windows)
    Quadro FX 3800M (Windows)
    Quadro FX 4800 (Windows and Mac OS)
    Quadro FX 5800 (Windows)
    Quadro 2000 (Windows)
    Quadro 2000D (Windows)
    Quadro 2000M (Windows)
    Quadro 3000M (Windows)
    Quadro 4000 (Windows and Mac OS)
    Quadro 4000M (Windows)
    Quadro 5000 (Windows)
    Quadro 5000M (Windows)
    Quadro 5010M (Windows)
    Quadro 6000 (Windows)
    Quadro CX (Windows)

  • Set Maximum Render Quality on by clicking "Sequence." Select "Sequence Settings." Check "Maximum Render Quality." Click "OK."

  • Add additional RAM to your computer. Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 is only compatible with 64-bit systems, which allows the program to utilize all of the RAM available on your system. The more RAM your system has access to, the better the performance of the Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 software. Premiere Pro CS5 requires at least 2 gigabytes of RAM to operate. But Adobe recommends the program be run with 4 gigabytes or more.

  • Install plugin-ins designed to accelerate the performance of the Adobe Premiere Pro CS5. The “Elemental Accelerator” plug-in, for example, is designed to increase the performance of the standard encoder by as much as 10 times. Sapphire plug-ins from GenArts are designed to support faster rendering. Visit the “Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 / Extend Plug-ins” Web page on the Adobe website for a list and description of compatible plug-ins.
