    Playback For Avchd Files Are Choppy

    Just experimenting - I've actually tried every fps option with no significant change. The final videos are of varying length - to use the most recent, 44 minutes. Trevor

    So can I presume that no one has any suggestions and this topic is closed?

    I'll be heading off interstate for a few days later this afternoon, so don't be discouraged if I don't respond to posts for a few days. TrevorW

    ?? I don't burn these files to disc - I simply output the dmsm file as an MP4 file and I play that file from my external hard drive via the DVD outlet (ref post #8). It is only during pan and zoom that the problem occurs and this problem is the same when played on my computer.

    The dmsm file consists of about 500+ images (with added movement, audio, transitions and the occasional caption). Perhaps I have misled you into thinking the source consisted of videos? As I mentioned in post #9 the problem is identical when the MP4 file is played on my computer - ie jerkiness as the photo pans/zooms/etc. The soundtrack is fine, by the way. Thanks again for your persistence. Trevor

    I'm not sure what it tells me, but it may be useful to know that I just tried creating a video at a lower resolution (1080 X 720) and the quality was the worst it's ever been (re choppiness - pronounced on every frame rather than merely noticeable on some frames). Not sure what that means.

    An indicative file would be: Source file dmsm 6.12mb: Converted to MP4 video 2.6GB: File length: 44.48 W X H: 1920X1080 Data rate: 8194kbps Total bitrate: 8322kbps Frame rate: 15 fps Just to clarify, I think I'm misleading people by using the word "converting". What I'm doing is creating a video file from a source dmsm file through the output option in VideoWave. Sincerest apologies if I've been using misleading terminology. Please remain patient.

    I've just viewed my latest file using an older version of Roxio and it's just the same. By the way, it's identical when viewed directly on my computer, so it's not the TV interface.

    Clearly my explanation is poor - my apologies. I'll try and clarify as much as I can: 1. I open dmsm files I have previously created in VideoWave; 2. I output those files using various AVCHD options (20p or 50p) 3. I copy the resultant file onto my external hard drive and run it on my TV through my DVD player using the USB Port. I am no longer using MYDVD - this was a process I was using before when creating ISO files. I'm currently experimenting with creating the files using an even older version of Roxio to see if I'm having the same problem. I'll let you know how that goes.

    First - it looks like I misunderstood what Smart Proxy was all about, so let's take that off the table (apparently it's located in MyDVD and is a solution to a different problem). myguggi: My source files are the default files used when saved in Videowave (dmsm). I'm aware of what ISO files are and it's just a process I used in the past which I raised just to explain why this problem hasn't occurred for me before (I was converting to MPEG files back then and was not experiencing the choppiness). It's only since I've tried converting my dmsm files to AVCHD that I've experienced the choppiness. The quality is definitely much better, apart from the jerky playback. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for your reply DG. I am using VideoWave and viewing the file on my television. The choppiness occurs intermittently throughout the movie during playback. It's also a little choppy during rendering but this is not unusual and files usually play fine (until recently I've always converted my MPG files to ISO's via MyDVD - as you'll appreciate at considerably poorer resolution). I've tried a variety of AVCHD 1920 X 1080 options, including 24p and 50p. As I mentioned in my initial posting, the suggested fix on the Roxio site for this problem is to enable the Smart Proxy option, but this isn't available in NXT 4 (so I presume it's only available with the latest version - NXT 5).
  12. I've been trying to resolve this problem through Technical Support by I appear to be dealing with automated responses (no direct answers to questions). When I output files using AVCHD (regardless of settings - I've used both Hardware and Software rendering options, I've cleared my Proxy files, and I've experimented with all FPS options). I'm using Windows 7 64bit, RAM is 8gb, and a Radeon 6950 video card with 1gb of VRAM. My CPU is an i7 2600 (3.4ghz). There IS a suggested solution posted for this problem (enable Smart Proxy), but it only appears to be available with NXT 5. I'm sort of committed to Roxio (I have about 20 very large files that would be extremely time consuming to recreate using another software) so I'm getting pretty desperate. At the moment I'm considering just upgrading to NXT 5, but it's a risk as I can't be certain that this will necessarily resolve my problem. As I mentioned before, Technical Support is simply sending me generic fixes and won't respond to direct questions. Please help me, I'm desperate!
