dead slow in preview and video trimmer

Question

Hi Folks,

 

I'm trying to edit in EMC 8/Videowave 8, having come "up" from VideoWave Movie Creator, but the movie clips are running dead slow in preview and video trimmer mode. They were normal speed in Movie Creator. The clips are in avi. If this thing is going to work for me, I need normal speed to edit, n'est-ce pas? Can anyone please help?

 

Thanks.

 

Bill

Computer specs please especially your video card. V8 uses your video card to do alot of the video "stuff".

Dimension 8250,

Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Version: 5.1.2600, Service Pack: 2.0

Memory (RAM) Capacity: 256 MB (with Release RAM 2000/XP v 2.01)

Intel® Pentium® 4 CPU 2.66GHz

Sum of Hard Disks: (C: F: ) Used: 95.63 GB Free: 36.89 GB

Video Card Model: NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 420 , Driver: nv4_mini.sys

 

 

Does this give you sufficient information on this score?

 

 

 

 

 

What type of AVI? I've never had any problems editing DV AVI. If you are using compressed files like DivX, then editing will be slower.

 

Hi, thanks for helping. Here are the specs that I gave in my other reply here:

As to "type" of AVI, would you believe I have no idea. I didn't exactly know there were different types. Perhaps you could clue me as to how to determine this.

 

Many thanks.

You don't have enough RAM, and your video card is also contributing to the the problem. It is is old technology, but if you have the latest drivers for it, it should get you by, but it is going to run pretty slowly when trimming or previewing.

Bruce, thanks a lot. I'll see about taking care of this stuff.

 

Best, Bill

 

I'm surprised the WinXP Pro would even boot with only 256MB RAM. WinXP Home edition runs good with 512MB. For WinXP Pro, I'd start with 1gig of RAM.

 

Gary, thanks a lot. I'll see about taking care of this stuff.

 

Best, Bill
