Program Hangs When Adding Video Imported As Avi


edvalencia

Question

I just changed my video card from an nVidia based 8600GTS 256MEG card to an nVidia based 8800GTS 512MEG card.

I have downloaded and installed the latest drivers for it.

 

The problem is when I import video from my camcorder as AVI DV Format (Using Roxio Media Import) and I add the video to my production, it hangs.

I'll drag the video into the production and when I play it, the video freezes, the audio still plays and the program becomes unresponsive.

I can add the video, and edit the start/end points just fine, but when I save it and try to play it, it hangs.

If I import the video from my camcorder as MPEG2, it works just fine.

I know I can start doing this from now on, but I have a large quantity of videos imported as AVI DV Format.

 

Everything worked fine prior to updating the video card. The card itself seems to work fine, as I've already spent some time playing Crysis on it.

 

System Specs:

Q6600 CPU

Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Board

2 Gig G-Skill Ram

MSI 8800GTS 512MEG Video Card

Sony DVD-DL drive

Lighscribe DVD-DL drive

Seagate 500 Gig Main Drive

Seagate 500 Gig External Drive

+ 2 other DATA Hard Drives

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated...

The settings were already set to what you recommended.

I ran the utility that checks your video card and decides whether to go with hardware or software rendering.

I seems to prefer the software rendering.

Considering that my 8600GT card with 256MEGs ran perfectly, this just doesn't make sense.

 

BTW, the project I'm currently working on has a mixture of video and slides.

 

Thanks,

The software hates NVidia cards. I always had to use software rendering, when I had my 7900GT in my computer.

Well, software rendering did the trick.

Kinda stinks that I cant get a card with this much power to render in hardware...

 

Thanks for the tip.

Did you try changing the performance on that card? That should have worked.

 

Some people think that hardware render was a good idea that never worked correctly. People see hang ups, jumps around transitions and slower rendering than with software. It depends on the set up and on the specific card. If you are doing video rendering you will not notice it; if you are doing slide shows and want some of the 3D transitions, .... well.

Will the version 10 software "hate" my card as well?

Im thinking of upgrading....

I think the problem is a combination of the junk drivers from NVidia and Roxio. I had no problems using Software render, because I didn't use 3-D transitions.

 

I also think that Roxio's Hardware render is severly flawed.

Set the properties if that card to best performance and anti=aliasing and anisotropic filtering to application controlled. If that doesn't do it set rendering to software.

I have a 8800GTX card and hardware render never worked for me...well it does until it comes to playing back the final burnt DVD on a standard DVD player- at that point the video flickers constantly. Software render was the only way to go.
