Maybve i'm doing something really stupid here, but please bare with me...
I am wondering why my brand new 2017 iMac 27", i5, 3.8GHz, 8GB RAM is RIDICULOUSLY SLOWER to load a video project in premiere pro than my old 2014 MacbookAir, i7, 1.7GHz, 8GB RAM?
I have a documentary film I am working on with roughly 28,000 video files on it (a lot I know).
The old Air loads the files to the project in roughly 5 mins.
The new iMac took 20 mins just to load perhaps 2000 of those 28,000 files, I quit after waiting 20 mins, but I am assuming it will take the new iMac about a couple of hours to open the project in premiere?!
They are both connected via USB 3 from the external hardrive that holds all the files?
The only difference I can see is that one is i5 and one is i7
Why is there such a ridiculous lag by my brand new iMac? I am assuming that editing on the iMac will also be this much slower too... So why on earth did I just spend all this money to get a waaaaaaaayyy slower computer?
Can anyone help with where I may be going wrong?? Many thanks...
