  1. Please, can you offer any advice on how I can speed up opening and saving of Videowave projects in Creator NXT2? When I use VideoWave from a recent download of Roxio Creator NXT2, I am very disappointed about how slowly it opens and, particularly, saves a project. Initially the projects do contain a lot (~ 300) of photos (*.jpg) and short video clips (*.mov) so that the video runtime is ~30 minutes. VideoWave is stable - no error messages - and projects rendered impressively fast (using hardware rendering). Also, transitions could be added quickly to the project – much quicker than in my previous version (v 9) of EMC, although saving was still intolerably slow. Each time I make a minor change to a project, saving takes at least 10 minutes, sometimes more! (Reviewing Task Manager info shows that significant CPU is being used for the duration, but there is very little impact on memory or disk activity after the first minute). This is much, much slower than when I was using EMC 9 on a Windows XP computer. So, although I have gained by significantly quicker rendering, overall I am finding the experience of using Videowave NXT2 very frustrating - worse than using EMC9. My computer has the following spec: Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-4770 CPU @ 3.40GHz Memory: 16GB Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 Hard Disk on which Roxio EMC & OS saved: SSD, SanDisk SD6SB1M-128G-1006 Hard Disk on which photos and EMC Projects saved: 2GB OS: Windows 8.1, 64bit By the way, I installed Creator NXT2 from the downloaded files with anti-virus software off (but firewall was left on) on a computer that had no previous Roxio products installed. I have performed a 'repair' of the software but this had no impact on the speed of saving a project. I also elevated the priority of Videowave to 'high' in Task Manager but this again had no noticeable impact on the speed of opening/saving projects. Any suggestions about how I can speed up opening and saving Videowave projects gratefully received!
