Windows Aero = Evil!

Jan 22, 2013 12:56 PM

Greetings all!


I have been trying to figure out why some of my renders (and some source material) appeared jittery during playback, particularly on a dual-monitor setup. For a  L O N G  time.


The short answer: They were fine. Windows Aero was the culprit. (Google "Second monitor video jitter" or similar) and poof! There it is...


Just select a non-Aero theme and voila! Goodness...

    You don't say what version of Windows you're using -- but how Aero performs on your computer pretty much depends on your graphics card.


    If you've got a decently powered graphics card (ie, your Windows Graphics Experience Index is above a 5) Aero should not give you any problems at all. And it certainly should not affect how the program renders -- which is based solely on processor performance.


    Although, if you were able to solve the problem, that's all that matters.

    Some of the "Help yourself" posts in this beautiful forum ask you to turn it off for a good editing experience. Just saying that it was covered in the syllabus

    If the software finds a display/graphics driver bad (crashes, launch issues etc.) it creates an entry in this file. The repercussions will be that there will be a message that "the driver needs to be changed" (or something like that) and the software will not use the underlying Graphics hardware AT ALL. Now, how much does it use the GPU if it was good? Minimal, but a bad driver is sure to cause issues with Premiere Elements.

    Delete this file and it will be reassessed if there really needs to be an entry (Sometimes the drivers are changed after we look at the message, but the entry in this file remains). If it is still bad, hard luck!
