Problem With Storyboard


mark31513

Question

I am using Roxio Easy Media Creator 7 Basic VCD Edition. I am trying to output a slideshow to a movie file by the following steps:

1. Clicking on File/Output Production To

2. Destination - Video File

3. Purpose/Quality - Video CD Authoring

4. Naming Movie

5. Clicking on Render File.

 

Getting the following error:

 

There is insufficent available system memory to render the production. Try shutting down other applications or reducing the number of panels in the production.

 

---------

 

I know that I have rendered at least one other file of similar size before, but I can't seem load that file anymore. How much memory do I need? I have no other apps running. Task manager says that I have 200 MB of free free memory (Total is 500 MB). I have even shut down other processes and still get the same error. I even created a very small production of about 4 panels and still got the same error. Something has changed because this has worked for me before. Any ideas out there?

I get this error on occasion for no reason I can figure out. Rebooting usually works for me.

If you are running 2000 or XP Service Pack 2 and have not updated your computer to the latest updates, you may encounter a memory leak on some computers. This is primarily for tablet pcs but can apply to others. See article here for XP. Rebooting will release that memory. There are some programs that will release and defrag memory without shutting down. System Mechanic is one such program (but it is cheaper to shut down.).

Since most here have never had the Basic version of the software, we usually tell folks to upgrade to the full version. I guess that I would have to say to look to see what is eating up 60% of your memory, though.

The source of your Basic Version - computer mfgr or burner mfgr - is responsible for support for it, if you want to try there.

200MB should be enough memory to do your production but there is something that is using up that much of your memory. Have you checked for any virus, trojan, adware etc. that might be changing your system ? Try running Spy-Bot and Ad-Aware and your virus security software to check for anything.

And of course, defrag, reboot, and turn off AV and screen saver, get offline if you have a 24/7 connection, and turn off any other utilities you can (including Windows Task Manager, Windows Firewall) ... possibly also the Firewall if you have one installed but be sure to turn that back on FIRST, before getting back onlline.
