Video playback in Videowave

Question

I haven't found this problem in the forums yet - I am using EMC9 very successfully except for this one problem - video clips from my Canon Powershot S3 IS camera that include panning or objects moving across the field of view "step" their way through playback in videowave. It's difficult to describe but the background or moving objects appear to jump through at approximately 3 steps a second. As a test I have played back in other programs (Windows Media Player, Windows Movie Maker, Internet Explorer, Quick Time, Canon ZoomBrowser, Real Player) where it plays back very smoothly - although in WMP and RP the video plays too slow and gets out of sync with audio (not an issue). The problem stays all the way through the creation of a video file and to the final DVD. I am recording at 30 frames a second. If anyone has any idea what the problem is I would very much appreciate some feedback.

Make sure that your video drivers are up to date, get rid of malware/spyware from your computer, defrag your hard drives, and make sure that when you are doing any video work, including capture, that you don't have any unecessary processes running in the background.

The preview or playback through Videowave is not indicative of what the final video will look like. Do an output from Videowave to either DV avi or mpeg2 (DVD best quality) and see if you still see the same degree of jumpiness.

Many thanks for your response. I did need an update to my graphics driver, from a 2004 version to a 2007 version. My graphics is an integrated SiS651. Videowave recognised it as an updated driver, but unfortunately it made absolutely no difference to the jumpiness. I have only the basic processes working in the background, but all I've done is added one short video clip to the videowave movie. My PC is a Packard Bell 3GHz Celeron D345, with 704MB RAM. Other programs work a treat, but the Roxio programs are very slow to load. I'm currently at a loss.

Many thanks for your response. I'm afraid the jumpiness goes right through mpeg2 (best) and to the final DVD.

You need to get a dedicated video card. The video chip, that you have in your computer, isn't up to the task of video work.

I am sure you are right - I was coming to that conclusion myself. Many thanks.

You are welcome. Does your computer have an AGP slot for a video card?

Sorry for delay!! My SiS Graphics spec says "AGP V2.0 compliant Supports Additional AGP4X/2X interface and Fast Write Transaction" so I guess it does. An interesting test I've done with my old Olympus C-350 Zoom - same pan shot as with the Canon, .mov converted to .avi, and although the picture quality is not as good as the Canon the panning is very acceptable in Videowave, not like the Canon. I'm looking at Graphics cards anyway. Thanks again.
