''Jerky'' play on Adobe Premiere Pro CS4

I just loaded Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 on my system, which meets the requirements as far as I can tell. When I load sequences encoded (from tapes) or created under CS3 (everything I have), the video sequences of the projects all play ''jerky'' and the audio is intermittent. Does anyone know what's going on?

    My system exceeds the minimums - I checked that out first. I'll try the temp file storage suggestion. The file is fine when it is not played i the app (but it's impossible to watch and edit when it's doing that). One more thing - Premiere Pro CS3 worked fine on my system.

    I have a:

    Acer Apspire 4520 AMD Turion 64 x2 TL-58 1.9GHz
    751MB NVIDIA GeForce 7000M TurboCache
    4GB DDR2
    300GB HDD 7200RPM

    and it also gets jerky movements as well as freezing. I want to by a new laptop to install CS4. what do you recommend?

    It really does sound like your system may not meet the "optimum" requirements for CS4. Minimum requirements for CS4 are usually marginally acceptable. If you would provide your system specs, I would be better able to make a recommendation.

Try maxing out your temp file storage from within the options in the program. Also does the file play jerky when compiled as a finished file. Using an external player. When the file is played or previewed from within the app it was created, with the GUI loaded and possibly the file not being saved, the amount of memory consumed is exponentially increased.

I had a jerky video problem also with Premiere CS4. Found out that my downloaded video in the source file was NTSC @ 30fps, but somehow for the sequence I picked DV PAL the European standard at 25 fps. So I lost every 5th frame. I finally found it by comparing frame by frame the source and program screnes.

Had to start over again on that video.

Hi. You should at least have 2GB (4GB recommended) of memory when running Adobe Premiere CS4 for a smoother run since it's a very system resource hungry application. Try CS3 or CS2 instead if you don't plan to increase your RAM.

How to download adobe photoshop cs3 trail version

The 'trial' version of CS3 is no longer available for download from Adobe. The new version (CS4) is available:

I would suggest downloading Photoshop CS4, and trying it first, before spending time downloading the other applications. If Photoshop CS4 runs on your computer, the others probably will. Premiere Pro is the biggest resource hog, but will run fine on a dedicated graphics computer.
