I'm working on a project using archival clips from youtube. There are no effects and the full piece is only 2 minutes. I'm able to use Premiere for about 1-2 minutes at a time before the program crashes, the preview plays audio but no video, or the software becomes so slow its unusable. Regardless, I always have to force quit the program. Although it may be different, my iMac can handle big projects in final cut x fine. Below are the specs for my machine:

21" iMac
Version 10.9.5 - software fully updated
3.1 GHz Intel Core i7
16GB RAM
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 512 MB


Any idea what is preventing my machine from being able to run Premiere? Thanks!!!

What version of Premiere are you running?

Hey Nick,

It's Premiere Pro CC. I downloaded it 2 weeks ago from the cloud so I expect it is the most recent version.

I really really appreciate the help.

Ok...thanks for the info. Was just checking that it wasn't an ancient version of Premiere.;)

Can we assume that this is a fully licensed/paid-for install...and not a trial version?

It's a trial version. The only reason I haven't bought it yet is because it keeps crashing
