Defragment your hard drive. HuffYUV files are smaller than uncompressed, but still much larger than DV .avi files.
If the 160 GB hard drive is the only drive in your system, then you need to add a new hard drive just for media and preview files.
The red bar just means that you can't go out to tape, which is expected for a Desktop editing mode project.
If you have the whole Production Studio, try using Dynamic Link so you don't have to render out of AE.
Thank you for your respond.
I've defragmented my HD even when analized
XP said I don't have to defrag yet, still I defrag
and no luck.
I have another HD drive, which I use for
APP media cache and preview file, no luck.
On other my OLD computer which installed AP65
(PIV 3 ghz - 512 mb - onboard videoCard - 80 gb HD)
I copy all the huffyuv files (generated by AE) there
Import them to AP65 with with VFW editing modes project setting,
and use huffyuv as the video compressor, and all went smooth.
Put all the huffyuv clips on the timeline,
I can "stitch" them by export to AVI huffyuv again,
unmark the recompress, then AP65 went smooth
render back as the whole huffyuv avi file without recompressing.
I can't do it in the new rig with APPCS3.
in the desktop mode proj setting
and huffyuv video renderer, APPCS3 always crash
and close immediately without warning.
I love APPCS3, but I think it still has bug.
Anyway, thanks once again for your respond.
I'd be glad if any readers can help my problem.
I think Jeff had the best solution to use Dynamic Link and stop rendering out of AE.
> ...use Dynamic Link and stop rendering out of AE
Well, that may be a good solution but I often like "hard-rendered" lossless files myself.
In this case, try using Lagarith instead of HUFF. You can use VirtualDub to (very quickly) batch convert any existing HUFF files to Lagarith.
Thank you for all respond.
I'll try to find the Lagarith on the internet now...:).
Many thanks once again.
