Adding Markers In Videowave Takes Forever

Question

Why does it take 30+ seconds every time I add a new marker to a video file? This is insane.

 

I'm working with a MS-DVR file, converted for editing by VideoWave, and this is a 3D project.

 

System Specs:

 

AMD Phenom II X6 (six cores @ 2.7+ GHz)

8 GB RAM

2 1.5 TB hard drives

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

 

Any ideas? I can't imagine this got passed through QA.

How come you are the only one having this problem? Are you doing a HD project?

Then there is something wrong with…

 

Your PC?

Your Install?

Your Project?

 

A little more info will help. Your Video Card and driver/software version?

 

Free Space on your HDD where the Proxy file is kept?

 

Recent defrag? (just go ahead and do one anyway)

 

More details on your project like Walt asked for and total time.

 

And something to try.

 

In VW, Tools – Options – Proxy files: Clear and reboot your PC.

 

After that start a test project with a short clip or 20 pictures. Set Some markers.

 

If OK, load your project and try it.

It may very well be the size of the file.

 

It's a DVR-MS file, about 22 gigs in size, and high definition + transcoded to 3D by VideoWave.

 

Already defragged (Windows 7 does this automatically on Wednesdays by default).

 

Two 1.5 TB hard drives, each with over 1.3 TB free.

 

Proxy files are on a separate 7200 RPM drive.

 

Video card is an ATI Radeon HD5750, 1 GB DDR5 (I think).

I tried part of what you suggested - defragging again isn't going to make a difference.

 

The movie is about 3 1/2 hours long. Out of 8 gigs of RAM, VideoWave is using less than a gig, and the UI is very responsive when a doing other editing. It's only adding a marker that causes the long delay/temporary hang.

That 3.5 hour length of your video is most likely the root of your problem.

 

Why are you working with such a long video? You never answered my question is this a HD project which you are going to burn to a BlueRay disc?

 

You can't create a DVD that long a file.

It's the Superbowl, from my Windows Media Center DVR. I didn't have much of a choice. There's still little excuse that an operation as simple as adding a marker would cause such a delay. I'll be trying the shorter video to see if it makes a difference. Looking at Resource Monitor, I see no increased drive or CPU usage during the hang, so I'm thinking this is simply a bug. :-P

 

BTW, I did write into Roxio support. It's been about a week, no answer.

 

Thanks!

You just confirmed what Jim was alluding to. ;)

 

Oh, and YES, defragging can make a difference, but in your case, it may just be the type of file being used, along with the length of time.

I ask for the third time: is this a HD project?

It is not a bug, it is the length of the video you are using. Why are you wasting your time adding markers? You can't create a video from it anyway.

And it's back... it appears to happen after adding new video files to a project. I'll try the clear proxy/quit/launch/quit/launch/quit/launch trick again, but who knows if that will work. Task Manager even shows VideoWave not responding. Grrr!

 

Why do you keep on posting if you don't bother to answer any questions? Are you burning to a BlueRay DVD, aDL DVD or a standard DVD?
