Creator 2012 Pro Tech Question

Question

I'm currently researching video editing products to use to create DVD's of my recent 16,600 mile motorcycle trip from Key West to Deadhorse Alaska and back home to Tampa.

During this trip I shot over 200GB of 1080P video and over 1200 photographs.

 

I Want to create a project that interlaces video with still photos using transitions between them and then render it to a Blu-Ray Disc as well as Std Definition DVD's to share with family and friends.

I see in the info on Roxio's web site that it uses CUDA for faster rendering, but nowhere does it say if this is a 64-bit multithreaded application suite.

This is important to me as it will greatly improve performance over a 32-bit application that won't take a much advantage of the quad-core i7 system I just purchased.

 

Anyone know the answer to this??

It is not a 64 bit application. But it is pretty fast. I know of only 2 different 64 bit applications for video editing. I have one and don't use it except for special functions because Cretaor 2012 is logical to use. I have an i7 processor and 64 bit W7 as shown in my signature.

 

Remember that on a single layer DVD, you can put only one hour of the best quality on the disc. Double that for double layer. Creator 2012 allows you to use DivX which is highly compressed but of good quality but people must have the ability to play that kind of disc. The one hours at best quality is standard in the industry and any more, will result in lower quality which my or may not be noticeable.

 

Try it. Buy it from an online store and if you don't like it, you have 30 days to return it for a refund.

Well, now I'm confused...

When I posted here I also entered a support request to Roxio/Rovi.

I received a response (see below) stating that it IS indeed a 64-bit multi-threaded application.

 

SO WHICH IS IT - Yes, or No??

Vijay didn't understand your question (or chose not to). The program will run on a 64 bit operating system but as a 32 bit application. It will not address all that extra memory that you may have on your computer -- see advantages of 64 bit over 32 bit.

 

The 64 bit software I have is somewhat faster but not necessarily 2 or 3 times faster. As I stated above, the rendering is secondary to the ability to use the software easily -- the comparison of time to get the project ready to render vs the rendering time.

Roxio Burn and Virtual Drive both install 64 bit .dll files - the remainder of the program is 32 bit (loaded into Program Files (x86)
