What type of camcorder did this video come from and how did you get it into your computer?
File format is the chief reason for the program lugging.
But version 8 also includes a couple of "background" features that can slow it down considerably too. And it might be worth turning them off, per the FAQs to the right of this forum.
As you can read, i use version 7.0.
I also think its not important how the file's are recorded. It are the same file's in the same program BUT on 2 different machine's. Old machine now problem. New is slow.
Sorry, Pietjooo. I don't have enough information to be able to help you.
what information do you need? The clips are recorded with a Sony DCR-VX9000E Pal. Conected by firewire, recorde by PME 7.0, directly saved on a harddisk. But i think trhats not relevant...
The 2x 1TB SATA's should be good, but please tell us how they are allocated, i.e. what is on each one?
How is the Virtual Memory (Page File) set up, where is it located and how is it managed?
On either HDD, do you have Windows Indexing setup? You can check this with Properties from My Computer/Windows Explorer.
I also assume that you have no partitions setup on either of the HDD's. Is that correct? [Note: partitions really slow things down, especially with any NLE program.]
This ARTICLE might give you some tips on how to setup your dad's system (and your own) for NLE work.
Ok i found out the folowwing. When i remove the video driver. Adobe video import works fast. When installing its slow. Sow i think im gonna buy a other card. Can somebody advise me a good budget card?
And is it still treu that for video editing Intel based processors are more stable than Amd?
The ATI Radeon cards have been getting high marks on the PrPro forum.
I use nVidia, but some recent driver releases do not seem to be working all that well. Some have had luck by just killing some "gamer" functions, but others have had to roll-back to much earlier drivers. So far, mine are working wonderfully.
Now, for NLE work, one does not need all that much power. Good diver support is more important. PrE does not yet take advantage of CUDA on some high-end nVidia cards, so nothing to be gained there.
