OL CS5 crash/freeze when capturing HDV

Jun 9, 2011 8:26 AM

I was wrong when, in previous posts, I reported successful HDV capture from a Sony Z1. I was actually downconverting to SD  - and this continues to work well!


However, I have now tried to capture HDV, and neither my laptop not workstation will handle it.


Laptop  =  Dell Studio 1558:  i5, 4Gb Ram, ATI Radeson HD 4500 card and external e-sata Raid0.


I get intermittent horizontal pixelated banding in the Field Monitor.  OL will go into record but soon crashes.  OL's crash dialogue box appears (ADVANCED_EXCEPTION_HANDLER) .  At no time do any memory bottleneck warnings appear, and the Win 7 Resource Monitor reported no unusual stress/strains on resources.


Dell Precision Workstation; Xeon 5650 hex core; 12Gb Ram, Quadro FX3800 card and internal Raid0.  OL will not go into record.  When I click on the record buton, the application freezes.  It does not crash, nor does OL display any bottlenecl/resource warnings. I am able to close it, but I need to reboot before OL will display an image on the Field Monitor.  When OL is in the frozen state, the Win7 resource monitor is reporting ni unusual stress/ strains on resources.


In both cases, this cannot be because hardware is under-spec'd, and in both cases a different firewire cable is used!


Any suggestions would be appreciated.
