    HDV & AVCHD editing observation

    "Wow card" or Crown? Tough decision Jim. Sounds like the crowns may be more reliable for the pop corn consumption, than the "wow card" in the P4 given the pig make over, but not nearly as fun! Ah yes, I do have CUDA and the renders speeds are really an improvement. I don't have any studder in the render outputs only in th previews in videowave. Its my constant battle. But again only with HD file formats. But you are probably right, a move towards a dedicated desktop would probably be the right decision, but not practical given the travel I have to do. But it is something I will look at. Thanks! Tim

    HDV & AVCHD editing observation

    Jim, Ah your comments give me hope! Just to give you an idea of the volume I typically work with in a big project for me. So for example lets say you have an hour of MPEG 2 HDV or AVCHD capture in about 35 to 50 clips of about 40 seconds each. The goal is 3 to 5 minute piece. You mean when you start to lay that out in videowave you have no freezes or stutter as you move from one clip to another in preview? Burning is not a problem. The output always eliminate the stutter, but "seeing" how your shots are timed and working in the edit is tough. I have to output a small WMV file so I can actually how the edit is truely working. Thanks Tim

    HDV & AVCHD editing observation

    ah.. I completely understand.. I want a Quad 4.. The Dual Core isn't even a year old.. Yea I'm pretty sure the gun is already loaded. I'm on my way to getting blasted! Saving grace might be that she gets the dual core!!! I hope, but very doubtful.

    HDV & AVCHD editing observation

    Yes, I've learned the hard way. It is possible but what a pain in the butt. I am going back to SD editing on intense projects, at least until I move to Quad 4. But as you can imagine, there is a lot of hype over HD camcorders that fool people into what is possible. I qualify as one of the fools!! Thanks for the input.. Tim

    HDV & AVCHD editing observation

    Happy Holidays Everyone. Hope everybody's holiday videos are going well!! Just a general observation after a number of fairly intensive editing projects. Originally I thought with a fairly decent duo core processor I would be good to go with editing HDV MPEG 2 or AVCHD files. But Alas NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Silly me. Just STILL not easy stuff to edit in preview of Videowave. Lots of constant stutter and 1 to 2 second freezes at clip transition points in the preview of videowave, indicating to me that my processor is still fighting an up hill battle. Feels like Duo Core needs to be Quad at the least to truly handle any real volume of MPEG 2 HDV and especially AVCHD. I've done all the software upgrades and patches, turned off all background and start up processes but still a problem. Generally once you get to the output it's fine to any file format, but if you are doing music base editing ( aka Christmas video!!) or any beat required edit points, it's next to impossible to really determine in preview of Videowave. So I have reverted back to converting all my HDV MPEG 2 files to AVI in order to edit properly in videowave. I end up back in SD as a final product. Now I only use my MPEG 2 HDV file pieces or AVCHD for simple pieces such as my daughter's recitals or anything not requiring a lot of editing but basically drop in videowave trim here and there and done. Its a little disappointing. Anybody else sharing this experience? It feels like Quad 4 is in my future faster than I hoped. But I don't know if that is even fast enough... Thanks all Happy Holidays! Tim.

    Pefformance better with 64 bit vs 32 bit?

    Big Dave Thanks for the suggestion. I try to stay on top of the updates. So I did double check. Driver, directx (11) and sp1 all updated. This freeze only happens with HD file formats. All SD formats work fine. AVI seeming to be the most friendly. Thanks for the input. Tim

    Pefformance better with 64 bit vs 32 bit?

    Thanks for the response guys.I do appreciate it. I pretty much can't find a valid reason to upgrade to Windows 7 from Vista at all for my needs. What originally started the upgrade thought process was that I do continue to have a bothersome 1 sec or less freeze in the timeline preview of videowave when working with MPEG 2 HDV files. It happens right at the end of a clip as it transitions into the next clip. It doesn't occur on the output, but when editing it's a pain in the butt for figuring out timing with shots. If you've got any suggestions on how to fix I'd appreciate the input. Thanks! Tim
  8. Just a general question. Thinking about upgrading from vista 32 bit to Windows 64 bit. Anybody notice improved performance in Windows 7 64 bit with Videowave editing? Thanks Tim

    videowave freezes on file export

    Thanks for the response Jim. Repair? Really? Even if Videowave is exporting all other projects fine? There can still be an overall repair to fix a particular project problem? I will give it a try. Thanks Tim
  10. Never had this one before. Exporting to any file format I get about 30 seconds into the export and it just stops. Working with Mpeg 2 HD files.. about a 3 min piece. Tried saving as a new project, tried replacing what I thought was corrupt files but to no avail. Exports other projects fine. Next thought is to separate the project into 2 and export separate files and then bring back into new project. Any ideas? Thanks

    Cineplayer choppy playback on MPEG 2 HDV files

    Thanks for the response.. Big Dave.. no I have not applied service pack 1 for Creator 2010. I just downloaded 2010 less than month ago, I thought this service pack and or fixes would be included. As I am typing this, that sounds more like wishful thinking... I will apply the service pack now..

    Cineplayer choppy playback on MPEG 2 HDV files

    Ok, Still trying to improve playback of MPEG 2 HDV files on Cineplayer and WMP. Here's probably a stupid question. I would assume that Creator 2010 has Roxio DVD Decoder installed. Correct? http://www.roxio.com/enu/products/cineplay...a/features.html This particular product is for WMP for playback of MPEG 2 and DVDs on Vista. But I don't want to cause a conflict between Creator 2010 and this plug in. Anybody run into this? Tim.

    Cineplayer choppy playback on MPEG 2 HDV files

    thanks for input guys. I did take a look at those two articles Big Dave. Thank you. Everything is updated. Still having playback isses with MPEG 2 HDV files. No problem with MPEG 2 for DVD burning. It is strickly to related to MPEG 2 HDV exported from Videowave. Though other outputed file formats play fine, and I can convert those MPEG 2 HDV files to Flash and they play fine. Its just about playback on WMP or Cineplayer.
  14. Cineplayer as well as WMP has problems playing back MPEG 2 HDV files. With Cineplayer its a real choppy playback, with WMP it freezes but the audio continues fine. Not sure if its a setting or a codec I need to download. Any experience with this problem? Thanks Tim

    Upgrade to Windows 7..A benefit?

    Thanks for all the input! Based on your experiences, I can't find a real valid reason to go through the pain in the butt to upgrade. I think I'd wait until the next computer. But obviously some of you did find a reason. Thanks so much. Tim
