Okay I am putting my MBP through much the same paces you are. I use Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, Encoder, Encore, Photoshop, etc. on hour long projects sometimes with at least three programs open and bouncing between two or three of them. Usually Premiere, After Effects and Photoshop.

The only difference between my MBP and yours is I have 16GB of memory the rest is identical. I have a 1 TB HDD which I have considered changing to an SSD. Mine is an early 2011. I have never used the SMC to adjust the fan speed but I do have it on a laptop cooler with twin fans because it does feel very warn on the bottom and I recognize I am working it hard and want the additional cooling. I have never experienced any slowdown issues. You may have another issue going on or maybe a dual fan laptop cooler would help.
