I'm having a issue while edditing my videos.


When play the video i'm not geting a smooth playback. It's Shuttering, getting slow.

It happens with many HD videos and the ones i've imported from my NikonD5100 - mov files.

My pc configuration:


Intel i3 3.07Hz

8gb ram

ATI Radeon HD6670

2 hd sata 500gb 7200RPM


I don't know what to do.

    I wonder if your biggest problem is that you only have a i3 CPU.


    Have you tried lowering the playback resolution to see if it helps.


    Upload a sample to Mediafire and we can test the footage.

    On a system that weak, i3 CPU, only 8 GB memory, AMD video card, only 2 HDD's, and using the MOV format, it just does not have enough horsepower. I'm not sure if the D5100 format is one of the exceptions that are supported natively, or whether it requires the 32 bit QT Server, but in the latter case it aggravates the problem of an underpowered system significantly. Maybe rendering your timeline before playing will help a bit. Did you tune your system, removing the sidebar, MSN and similar crap, did you turn of compression and indexing on both drives, do you have a fixed pagefile, have you disbled background services you do not need, have you killed anti-whatever software and other unneeded background processes, etc.
