For some time I've been concerned by how long it takes to both OPEN and SAVE Productions in Videowave, so have done some detailed analysis.
OPEN Production of 80 x Images (JPG), 2 x MOV and 20 x MTS creating Roxio Movie of 13 minutes duration
Started at 16:13 Videowave almost immediately took 100% of one of my CPU's
Completed at 16:15
Videowave still using 100%
Reads MOV and MTS
OPEN completed at 16:17 so taking around 4 minutes
Make some changes, doesn't matter what (unless someone wants to convince me otherwise)
SAVE Production (no deletions or additions)
Started at 16:24
Writes to .DAT file
CPU at 100%
Writes to .DMSM
Completed at 16:25
VW continues at 100% CPU
No Disk activity
No Network activity
100% CPU Usage
SAVE Completed at 16:30
Question, what is Videowave doing for the last 5 or six minutes after it seems to have done what it needs?
If anyone wants to throw this at Roxio Support, feel free.
