Another newbie question: When I am scrolling through my video clips using the organizer, it gets about 1/4 down and then freezes. It takes awhile to unfreeze and resume scrolling but after a couple of lines of thumbnails it freezes again. At the bottom of the screen it says "indexing [filename]" with a progress bar that keeps refreshing. It seems like the computer is struggling to generate the thumbnails but Photoshop Elements didn't take near as long.
I have only video files selected.
I have an OC'd i7 875 with a 2 TB HDD for media (this is where the files are). I have two 40 GB Intel SSD in a RAID 0 for OS and program speed. I set this raid to be the scratch disks and maybe that is the problem. I saw in one of the other posts that you shouldn't use the same disks for scratch disks and the OS but I figured that the RAID is more than 5 times faster than the media drive so I should use it for the scratch disk.
Should I move the video files to my RAID before starting to work on them? Even it is the same disk as the OS?
Is there a way to turn off this "indexing"?
Sorry this post got a little off track but I wonder if these things are related. I just can't believe it is taking so long to generate thumbnails and scroll down the catalog.
What type of camcorder is your video from?
Are you using a project setting that matches that footage?
Is there a red horizontal line above your clips on your timeline? If so, you need to render regularly by pressing the Enter key. When you do, the red lines will turn green and your performance should improve greatly.
Steve, you must get tired of asking those same questions. This has nothing to do with the project. I am only trying to
scroll down through the thumbnails of video in my organizer window.
Oops, you're right! You did say Organizer!
Have you tried turning off the Auto Analyzer under the Organizer's Edit/Preferences menu?
Otherwise, it's just a matter of your computer keeping up with drawing all those thumbnails.
