Convert to MPEG2.
Use AVCHD Upshift to convert to a more editing friendly format.
Thanks, but unfortunately this doesn't work with the Vista 32 that the computer has...
Thank you, but Mpeg2 seems to have less quality than Windows Media and be much bigger in file size...
List your computer's hardware specifications, please.
Ok, the spec:
- Intel® Core 2 Duo-processor T7500
- 2,20 GHz , Nivå 2-cache på 4 MB
Memory - 4096 MB
Maximum memory, up to 4 GB DDR2-minne
Harddrive - 320 GB (2 x 160 GB)
NVIDIA® GeForce 8600M GS
- Up to 1023 MB graphicscard, 256 MB dedicated,
so that should be enough.
Your computer specs seem to be sufficient for this task.
It's entirely possible that Windows Media is more difficult to decode than MPEG2, and that's why you're seeing the slow performance. MPEG2 is likely the better choice here, as long as your conversion settings are appropriate.
Further, file sizes shouldn't matter to you or any editor anymore. Hard drive space is so cheap that you should have at least a terabyte of storage available to you.
The NewBlueFX web site indicates that AVCHD Upshift requires "Windows XP or higher". It should work on Vista 32.
Make sure to defragment your hard drive.
Try silencing the audio to see if video performance improves.
If the audio is enabled, wait until any conforming or generation of peak files is finished before you try to edit the video.
Thank you so much for your help!!
You're welcome. :)
Let us know if the performance gets any better.
