Creator 2009 Videowave hangs/jumps, no sound, 60fps .MOV files

Question

Creator 2009, using Videowave to edit & compile 1080i-60 fps .MOV files. Copied files to SATA hard drive, added first file to VW project, tried to preview. Video preview jumps, skips frames, is 'jerky', does not play native sound. Native sound is active (green light on timeline). Tried with various files, one at a time, same result despite smaller file size (38mb) chosen. Tried upgrading video card from 128mb RAM to GeForce with 1Gb RAM, no change. Did not encounter this with HD30fps .MOV files.

 

NOTE: Files play properly with native sound in Quicktime viewer.

 

Background;

Machine: HP 8200 workstation with (2) Intel 30.2 Ghz dual core 64 bit processors, 16 Gb RAM, (2) SATA 160Gb drives, Passport 160Gb usb storage drive

Video: started with 128Mb V-RAM [worked ok for 30fps], upgraded to GeForce 1Gb V-RAM

Oper System: Win XP64, SP2

 

Original install seemed smooth. Cut my teeth on a project using 150 video clips (HD30fps) and 150 jpg stills with music background, titles, transitions, credits, speed changes, pan-zoom, color correction - all worked out fine. Rendered to iso, burned DVD sometimes successfully but required slow speed (a different problem?). In all a satisfactory result.

Upgraded camera to 1080i-60fps -same brand, same .MOV format- Videowave choked. System review could be 128Mb v-ram inadequate, upgraded to 1Gb v-ram with nVidia drivers for sound also. System works fine in all other aspects & programs.

 

I hope I've covered specs & info adequately. I have several projects to do, video files recorded in 60fps for instructional videos & also irreplaceable underwater videos. I hope you have a solution for me. Thanks.

What about setting it to Software rendering? (Tools – Options)

 

From looking through the web a little, it would appear that most people find the MOV 60 fps unusable and have to convert it.???

 

Is there anywhere I can download a short piece of it for testing? 10sec is fine…

 

I'll try to arrange that for you to download tomorrow. The PC is a stand-alone with no Internet, so I'll transfer a cut & upload in the morn.

So it's possible I'll lose the added quality of 60fps in the conversion..?

Thanks for responding. Back to you soon.

Jim- Here is a small 10 second file in 60fps;

http://www.photofrost.com/store/1e-setup.MOV

 

I tested a conversion as a workaround that worked, to convert them from 60fps.MOV to 30fps.AVI files. Of course it loses the fluid motion handling of 60fps - rather a disappointment, and still no native sound track which I can also work around with narration.

So I ask myself why I upgraded my camera & built such a powerful computer only to be foiled by software limitation?

 

Is Creator 2010 capable of handling 60fps?

 

Thanks again for your attention.

In order for video to be watched it must be 30 frames per second in the US. Read about progressive VS interlaced and frame/field rate. Were do you see the loss of fluidity?

 

When you are editing in Video Wave, use software mode. When you are finished editing, output that project to one of the HD formats that supports CUDA or Stream. That is where the good video card gives you the advantage of speed. I assume you have a CUDA or Stream capability on your video card and have the proper drivers installed.

 

Button, please explain what you mean. Do you mean that a video directly from a camcorder is "better" than the video from a DVD? or that there is a loss of quality when you do a conversion? Remember digital is numerical so if there is a loss of "numbers" then there is NO signal; not a degraded signal like analog.
