Hello all. I'm afraid I already know the answer to my question, but it doesn't hurt to ask, right?
I've been recording video game footage with Videowave, while recording live commentary in Audacity. When I'm finished, I pop the separate video and audio files into Videowave and in the preview, everything runs smoothly. When I render the video (just north of 30 minutes), the audio gets out of sync by 30 seconds or a minute. I'm rendering the production to output a SmartAVC file, although if a do a lesser quality output file, the video is fine, if not less easy on the eyes.
This seems to be a common complaint, with some positing that just goes with the territory of video editing software. My question is this: is my PC not powerful enough? I'm using a laptop running 64-bit Windows 8.1 with 6GB of RAM, and a 2.4GHz processor. Is this just not enough to render lengthier productions? Thanks.
