Editing Video with MyDVD

Question

I have been using MyDVD to edit TIVO acquired video and now the response is terribly slow. It takes forever now to trim a section of video where before it was very responsive. Where before you could drag the locaton bar and video would advance now even the smallest movement requires a large lag before the video catches up. Anyone have any idea why?

You posted in the AVCHD and Blu-ray area of Creator 2010. Do you have that version and are you working with those?

 

Are you following this general process?

 

Computer specs please.

Did you ever get your problems with TIVO, in this thread, squared away?

You never came back and told the folks who were trying to help you.

I am using 2009 Ultimate. Had problems with ".....Error writing format" for about the last year and never could get it resolved with my new HP computer. I am now using my son's 3 year oldToshiba laptop and it worked fine except now it has gotten really slow.

 

The reason I never came back is that the problem was never actually resolved. I got tired of fooling with it so gave up until I got hold of my son's laptop, tried it, and it works.

So does this have anything to do with Blu-ray???

 

What are the specs of the lap?

 

What is the length of the movie?

Burning as AVCHD as before. Can't even get there because can't edit. Its not a problem with the laptop because it has worked fine before. The movie is approximately 1 hour long. Have tried reloading Roxio and that didn't seem to help.

"reloading" the software is a waste of time… If you do the full Clean Install, that will cure some problems.

 

You have not listed any specs for the PC or Lap and I can tell you right now there is no 'Go Faster' checkbox setting you overlooked!

 

A 1 hour HQ file is HUGE and no PC has the RAM to hold it! So you need a lot of RAM and a really fast CPU to do the page swapping that is required every time you move in it.

 

Defiantly out of the league of any Celeron and pushing the limits of any P4! You are in dual/quad core country or being very patient.

 

Video Card can have a detrimental effect if Hardware Render is selected!

The laptopToshiba Satellite with AMD Turion 64x2 Mobile Technology TL-56 1.8 GHZ Processor. RAM = 1918MB. I disagree that "reloading" is a waste of time as I couldn't edit at all until I reloaded it. Then it worked great for about two weeks. Now it is so slow it isn't worth it. Why would it work for a while and now hardly works at all.

Registry cleaner of any sort? I think Norton 360 has one built in. You don't need it, turn that off.

 

Have you been performing standard maintenance on your hard drive? Perhaps it has now accumulated so much junk that there is not a lot of defragged free space on your computer. I strongly suggest that you use Revo Uninstaller to get rid of programs that you no longer use, then use CCleaner to get rid of the junk and temporary files and finally defrag using one of the defraggers listed in this article. Note that the other programs are listed there also and the best part is that they are free. Use any registry cleaner including the one in CCleaner with a great deal of caution. Many people will tell you to ever do this unless you have a lot of experience.

 

Another suggestion. See if your anti-virus is scanning files that are already on your computer so while you are making new ones (encoding) that it is trying to scan them. Since the files are changing, the anti-virus may be continuously running. For best and fastest video editing, disconnect from the INTERNET, turn off your anti-virus (not just pause) and turn off any anti- malware programs.

Did all the above and no help. Erased the file that I was trying to edit and tried a different file and it works fine. Don't understand why my original file won't work because it edits fine on my desktop but get "error writing format" when trying to write to ISO file. Oh well thanks for the help. Now on to other Roxio adventures.
