My video justs stops

Apr 18, 2013 6:36 PM

Having created a video (about 12 minutes) when I try to play it in the preview window it goes for perhaps 3 minutes and then the video just stops; the marker on the timeline continues forward, but the image shown remains the same. What am I doing wrong? I have a Windows 7 64bit system, i7, 12 gb of RAM, NVidia GeForce GTX 260. Thanks.

    Can you please provide us with the full details of your Source Footage (the Clips that you Imported and placed on the Timeline), and then the Project Settings, where you are using those Source Files?


    That might give us clues, as to what is going on.


    Also, with any GUI display, or playback issue, I have to ask, have you updated your nVidia video driver, from the nVidia Web site? Do not trust Windows, or any driver utility, to tell you if you have the latest driver - check on the Web site.


    Good luck,

    Adding to what Hunt said...

    How to determine your nVidia driver version

    Right click in any open area of the Windows desktop

    Select NVIDIA Control Panel from the popup window

    Select SYSTEM INFORMATION at the lower left corner

    Driver version should be the 1st line in Details

    I have a GTX285 using driver 296.10

    >so the the jpgs are roughly 1mb each


    The key for video is not the size of the picture on the hard drive, but the pixel x pixel size


    Pictures that are "overly" large may cause video editing problems
