[code]Just bought Powerdirector 12 ultimate after using pinnacle for a long time.. I was ready for something better.. I have an amazing laptop that can run any game I throw at it but for some reason this editing software is laggy Like when I scroll through the timeline bar it goes in chunks and makes editing pretty much impossible. I have
2.4 ghz i7
14 GB RAM
90 gigs left in my c-drive
Windows 8.1 64-bit

also if its a matter of space then would it be a smart idea to install it on my external harddrive?
Any ideas? I'm at a loss I've done so much research on this already

Jared,
it would be nice if you altered the title of your thread a little, we try to be "family friendly".
Also, you'll find crunching HD video a tad more strenuous on equipment than gaming, or so I've been told.

saved projects refuse to open even when saved under new name. Occasionally a project will open but I lose more than 99 percent of them.

i solved by downloading the latest patch of powerdirector with build 3403 and downgrading a little bit the quality of preview.

now the program works fine enough
