    But if ur exporting, why would u edit it if its ur final export? Then youd have to export again cause u made changes? Is that right?

    To kill a task on PC:

    Open the command prompt (press WIN+R at the same time)

    Type tasklist to see the list of running processes and their PIDs.

    To kill a process by its PID, type the command: taskkill /F /PID pid_number.

    To kill a process by its name, type the command taskkill /IM "process name" /F.

  • Rosen DLR

    I have a slow laptop and this video really helps a lot!
    Do you have to "proxy" each and every video file? Or does it collectively "proxy" everything in your timeline?

    • Cat W

    What's up Peter! I've been enjoying your videos. Yours and Matti's. I have a question, what are your computer specs that you use for Adobe Premier Pro? I have a laptop which I thought was sufficient for Adobe Pr but it's still slow. My specs are AMD A10 7th Generation, 12 GB of ram, 1 TB of Solid State Drive, but my graphic card memory is shared with the laptop RAM and I'm guessing that's what makes it slow. So I'm still using Filmora at the moment. I wonder what your computer specs are and also your laptop's specs if you also use Premier on your laptop. Thanks in advance!

    Hey, I love your videos. I'm new to film and editing and I'm very motivated to learn and grow. I have a bunch of videos that I have recorded in the last month.
    As soon as I get into premiere pro, I feel like I just enter a maze and I don't know what to do. Especially when it come to color grading haha.
    Do you have any tips for me? I really want to get pass this wall when I'm editing, because I'm going to be going on a lot of trips within the next year and I want to show the world.
    Thanks for all the great videos.
