Sluggish Editing In Videowave

Question

I'm having a few issues editing videos with the videowave. This is my first time doing video editing of any kind and I'm not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to laptop hardware and things of that nature. The problem is when I try to split the video, videowave stops responding for a minute or so and I have to wait for it to be responsive again. The file that I'm trying to edit is very large so I'm guessing that that might be the issue (the file size is 7.63 GB). Looking at the system requirements, I thought that my laptop met them. I just want to know if I'm doing anything wrong.

What format is the video you are trying to edit? Where did you get the video? How long in time is the video? File size really is not that important a parameter. For example a 60 minute video in DV-avi format is about 13GB in size while the same video when converted to mpg (the DVD standard) at best quality will be about 4.3 GB and when converted to Dvix or Xvid will be less then 1Gb.

 

From your description it seems that your system is not the top-speed. What are your system specs? The system requirements posted by Roxio are really much too low.

The video is in the m2ts format that I recorded in from my Roxio Game Capture HD Pro and it's just over 1 hour long (an hour and 9 minutes). My system specs are:

AMD A4 3300M APU 1.9Ghz

6 GB of RAM

64 bit operating system

I think I might be forgetting some, but those are the ones I could find at the moment.

6 GB of RAM and you added a 7.63 GB file...

 

Starting to get the picture ;)

 

Nobody has enough RAM to do heavy video work so VideoWave only loads a portion into RAM and the rest is a temp file... Whenever you do anything, even scroll, that 'viewport' has to move so there is HDD swapping taking place.

 

Of course it does not help that your Laptop is actually a little below specs - 1.9 GHz where 2.0 GHz is minimum...

 

A little patience is a lot cheaper than an upgrade :lol:

I didn't think what I recorded would turn out being so big. Would you suggest that I upgrade my processor and RAM, or just record my game play in a lower resolution? I ask because the game I recorded was in 720p and I'm guessing that's what made the file so big. Thanks for helping!

I'm running a PC with 16GB of memory with files being edited from a SSD and i found it Dog Slow even with small video files so in the end bought VideoReDo which can be used to edit out parts of video you want to save plus convert to other formats
