Videowave Memory Issue



I have Creator 2009.


Using Videowave Build 111B10E ENU.


I have a 3.5 hr Tivo file that I am trying to split and delete sections via timeline in videowave. Every time I've tried it, the system ends up nearly unresponsive due to 100% physical memory usage.


After a number of attempts, I tried again with the task manager open to watch the memory usage to see what is happening. Here is what I see:


If I grab the position marker and drag it into the video, the memory usage climbs substantially. I went from 1.0gb mem in use to 1.97gb mem in use just moving the indicator to 30 mins into the video. Yet, if I just play the video in Videowave, I don't see this same kind of memory growth. So moving the position indicator to 1.5 hrs in to the video pushes the memory usage to 100% (or 6gb in my case) and then the system is pretty much hosed until I kill videowave.


So whats up with the memory usage and how can I stop it. This makes editing any kind of longer video impossible.


System is a


Gateway FX6800-01e

Intel i7 920

6GB Ram

500GB Free disk space

Windows Vista64 Home Premium


ATI Radeon HD 4850 1GB RAM

Driver Packaging Version 8.533-080917a-069575C-Acer

Provider ATI Technologies Inc.

2D Driver Version

2D Driver File Path /REGISTRY/MACHINE/SYSTEM/ControlSet001/Control/CLASS/{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}/0000

Direct3D Version

OpenGL Version

Catalyst® Control Center Version 2008.0917.337.4556






I should also add that if I try to fast forward it eats memory faster then moving the position indicator in time line. I just jumped .5 gb of ram trying to fast forward for about 5 seconds.
