What kind of video do you use, what codec in what setting? If AVCHD, it is to be expected.
I do use AVCHD... or, HD Video from my Cannon HD camcorder...
The problem has totally changed, once I upgraded my processor... Now, the video will play in the timeline... but it is all "unrendered" and everytime i try to render it.... it crashes to desktop.
So, to what processor did you upgrade?
What has totally changed?
What do you mean with ... it crashes the desktop?
Do you realize that you are talking in riddles for me?
Please be PRECISE AND EXPLICIT when making these statements.
I upgraded from Intel Core 2 Duo TO a Intel Core 2 Quad 2.83 GHZ
The symptoms were: Jerky video, freezing in timeline. Once it was exported to avi, all was fine.
Now, symptoms are: timeline won't render, crashes to desktop everytime i try to render timeline.
I only have one hard drive, and after reading posts; I think I should goto Fry's and get 3 more drives.
That is a very good plan. It could well be that the freezing could be caused by the hard disk bottleneck. Your new CPU may no longer be the major bottleneck, even with AVCHD material. Did you have a look at these guides:
Maybe it will give you some ideas.
Got 2 new 500 GB Sata drives 32mb Cache.
Tried installing as Raid.. but failed.
So I have one drive for raw footage, and the other drive for scratch disks, rendering and pagefile.
For some reason, my whole project became un-rendered when I changed the processor.. and every time i try to render it... it crashes to desktop.
The new Hard drives have made no apparent improvement.
How did you try to install the raid, in the BIOS or with Windows? What raid did you try?
Your project becoming unrendered may well be caused by installing new disks, what did you do?
I gave up on raid. I made one drive for footage, and the other for scratch.
After tweaking the page file, and rendering it again, it works better. I couldn't render the whole thing all at once, it had to be done small pieces at a time.
Thanks for the guidance.
