I am using cs5.5 on an
asus ga-x58a-ud3r rev. 1 board
6gb G.skill 1600 mem
m-audio - delta 66 internal sound card
dedicated hitachi drive for video (almost empty),
GeForce 9800gt with mercury hardware rendering CUDA
fresh install of windows 7 enterprise 64bit.
it seems almost anything i do in 720 and even sometimes in sd, has this choppy type of playback on the timeline.
I have worked with quicktime files, directly captured files, and avchd files. i have used them together, but mostly indivually.
it also is relatively the same with or without effects.
i have tried the standard optimizing tricks, but i can't tell what effect they've had, if any.
I have been trying to figure this out for a week now. any thoughts would be appreciated. THANKS.
That shows that you have numerous background processes and services running that slow down your system, especialy with only 6 GB of memory.
Check out Adobe Forums: Guide for installing and tuning a Vista... which also applies to Win7 and pay special attention to the BlackViper list of services.
Be sure to set disk indexing OFF in Windows Explorer for ALL drives
Open Windows Explorer
RIGHT click a drive
If drive indexing is checked at the bottom of the screen, uncheck it and say to apply to EVERYTHING
Do this for every drive
the strange thing is i have been using this card for a while, but it's only recently that I have come across this issue. If it helps at all, the file i'm working with now is an mpeg file and I just found out that it plays almost the same way in mpc.
and i just upgraded my ram to 12 gb 1600 g.skill rip jaw triple channel with absolutely no difference. I am pulling my hair on this one as i have never had this kind of trouble using cs 5.5 before. i just dont get it.
I have followed optimization techniques which included fixing the core parking issue in win 7, among other things. Anymore insight would be appreciated. Thanks.
