Q: Working on a guys computer doing video editing need help

I'm working on this guys computer he has a new HP computer no more than year old and it has windows 7 .It has 4 GB of RAM and AMD Athlon II 450 Triple-Core Processor.

It is a 20 minute video clip and size is 1.6 GB in size after trimming the 20 minute to 18 minute it took well over a hour to save it .Why so long ? Is the computer no good.

Does it need more RAM or faster CPU?

How can a 20 minute trimmed to a 18 minute take over a hour to save ? There is a other clip 6 minutes and timmed to well 5 minutes and well it took well 30 minutes to save it and size was 294 MB.

What is wrong here.

Preferred Solution: Working on a guys computer doing video editing need help

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

ok first off, im sorry if i posted this in the wrong thread. anyway, I am a huge video editing nerd. I make videos all the time and I need a machine capable of handling it. now i built a semi-decent computer thats been holding up fine but with the newer video editing stuff coming out and pc games as well, this thing is not doing what i need it to do. right now i have the following:

Abit A17 uGuro mobo
512 Pc something ram (forgot, i think 3200)
Pent 4 2.8 HT
120 gb hd i thikn a 8mb cache
and a cheapo GeForce MX 4000

what I want is something with like the following components, keep in mind it will mostly be used for video editing but gaming as well(such as HL2, CS:S, BF2, etc.)

Pent 4 3.something with either HT or extreme edition
at least 1gb of ram
any decent hd for the time being
something that packs as much power as the ATI Radeon All In Wonder 9600 or 9800 2006 edition, also thinking maybe an SLI capable machine so i can multi window task
and a decent water cooling system because their quiet(video rendering usually takes overnight and my family complains about the noise fans make.)

anybody have any sugestions or comments?

A:video editing computer

1. Read reviews on the types of parts you're considering, taking note of stability and performance.
2. Apply what is learned from above to your budget.
3. Keep in mind that drive speed, ram amount, and processing power are the keys to vid editing. This means you can forego the latest vid cards, unless you want one to game. You might want to consider raid10 for your disk subsystem, at least for the apps. Store data on a raid5 array if you're concerned with data loss. Since you seem to be doing it as a hobby, you might as well just store data on a single large disk, or a jbod array; Just a Bunch of Disks.
Some thoughts for you.

What kind of computer hardware and features are important for video editing?

The reason I ask is because my computer that I use now is already being pushed to its' limit with just web browsing and media viewing and I'm considering either upgrading my machine or perhaps buying an entire new computer altogether. Does anyone know the kind of computers that video editors use? Any links to computers that I can buy from an online vendor is more than welcome so I can get a good idea of what sort of price range I'm looking at.

Thank you!

A:Need new computer for Video Editing...

Read other 7 answers

Hello guys,

I'm scanning the market for a good pc for video editing. I need a pc that is built just perfect for video editing, and maybe even some software recommendations. I have purchased many computers that lag when I edit them, I want the computer to handle video smoothly, when fast forwarding and everything. Any recomendations on exact specs and models would be appreciated.
I'm currently checking out this pc, is this any good?

also I use magix 11 editing software, Is that any good? or is there something just as easy and similar and better?

thanks I appreciate your help ahead of time

A:Video Editing computer..

Well, I use a core 2duo, not quite as good as the one you're looking at. It renders like a bat out of hell compared to single core but its still disappointing when it comes to real time editing; it still lags and jumps and that's with a high end video card, plenty of memory and only DVD quality. So as far as I'm concerned, it's improved (at least it doesn't stall out) but there's still a ways to go.

That said, there are programs that are better at scrubbing speeds than others, it depends on the approach they take to the pre-rendering process I think, how they apply the edits before they are actually made. I use Premiere Elements and I'd grade that as poor and Pinnacle Studio which I'd grade as moderately acceptable.

Someday, maybe a quad or 8-core, and smooth hi-def editing?? Still dreaming!
I think the only way to know for sure is to actually try it out and see for yourself. Those are good specs on that loptop and it will probably outperform my desktop but one never knows for sure...

I need a computer that can handle video editing, mainly Final Cut Pro and Adobe Suite. Right now I have a 5-year-old MacBook Pro that can't manage FCP let alone run any programs smoothly and quickly. I can't afford a MacPro, so I've been considering iMacs. What's my cheapest option that will get the job done? I've heard you can buy PCs and install Mac OS. Would that be my best option? (Having PC capabilities would be awesome, for light gaming). I want to save money but I don't want to buy anything that isn't equipped to handle video editing well (cause then I'm just wasting money). I want to stick with Mac OS, but I don't care about the design or whatever, so I'd happily get a PC and put Mac on it, but I don't know how I would go about doing that. So if you have any suggestions or advice, please let me know! Thanks!!

So, we typically order between 2 laptop and 2 desktop models when we receive a request. Today we got a special request from a user wanting to build a video editing machine. Here is what the request read;

Intel Core 2 Quad Processor - 3.0 GHz 12 MB L2 cache
GeForce 9800 GT
Two 750 GB hard drives (7200 RPM)
EVGA 132-YW-E178-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI FTW ATX Intel mobo
Vista 64 bit version

Could somebody tell me if any of this is impractical? I don't know enough about processors or motherboards to have an opinion, but I know we use the 9800 GTs a lot. I don't even know if that mobo will handle 8 GB RAM, but from what I've read, I'm guessing not. Also, is Vista 64 bit really going to give a big advantage of XP?

Ok I have a weird problem
I have a quad core 6Gb HP Laptop. Been running ok up until a couple of days ago.
I had Cyberlink Power Director installed on it and was using it for about a year with no issues. The other day I tried to import an mpeg file into it and it just froze for about 20 seconds then shut down. I tried it a few more times with the same file and with other video files and it instantly froze and shut down again.
I tried using Windows movie maker and the exact same thing happened.
I then tried to install Corel Video Studio but it froze and restarted while trying to install it, so didn't even get as far as importing media files.
I'm at my wits end because I had no problems before and do a lot of video editing, now I cant seem to run ANY video editing programs!
I've tried restoring to an earlier time but it has not helped.
Any ideas?

I compiled a video in CyberLink Power Director (video editing software). When I would preview the video in the edit it would run very choppy in some parts. I produced the video and now it still runs choppy when viewing it with any media player. I am now trying to edit the video in windows movie maker and it runs incredibly choopy, delaying any action I make. It basically takes 15 seconds just to cut a portion of the video, or any other action for that matter.

What's the problem?

Some searching through google, "alternativeto", YouTube, for video and audio editing or recording software, FREEWARE, showed BandiCam, Screencast-o-matic, Audacity, and I've been aware of Windows Movie Maker.
I would like to be able to make audio adjustments and audio changes to a few screencast videos.  I do not really undestand Audacity; but tried learning it many years ago.  I am absolutely not confident nor comfortable with learning Movie Maker; I am not sure how to handle Bandicam, having tried it briefly many many months ago.  I am comfortable with and have used Screencast-o-matic, the free downloadable version, a few times, and it was fairly easy to learn and to use.  I would just like to learn and use something a little bit more clever than Screen-cast-o-matic, and to edit or make changes to some video recordings.  FREE/FREEWARE wanted.

A:Video editing or including audio editing or recording

Hey, cafejose! I have used Movie Maker before. It is not that difficult in fact. And for freewares, then you can see some recommendations of ShowMore. This is a newly-built website that I am very fond of and I get quite a lot help from its application. I always take it to record Skype calls but I think it can also solve your problem here.

A:Will the Computer that im building meet todays gaming & video editing needs?

It appears to be nice system. One thing I would recommend is getting a better power supply. The Thermaltake has only 14 and 15 amps respectively on the two +12v rails. By comparison an Antec 480W psu has 18 amps each on two rails. Anyway, a better brand would be good.

You might want to include a floppy drive. They are so incredibly inexpensive and you'll need it to facilitate the installation of the RAID/SATA drivers you'll need for your SATA hard drive.

Hey guys,

i'd appreciate anyone's opinion on this as I recently built a computer for video editing, took on my first assignment, and have recently begun experiencing huge BSOD's and application freezing in the last few days.

The project is due Sunday!

I'm really sort of flying by night on this one, learning as I go. I saw that people posted their associated .dmp files to go along with it but I can't even figure out how to change the permissions to let me attach it.

I feel like this problem really started getting worse after I left the computer to render footage. I came back about an hour later to discover that it had restarted, perhaps as if it had updated. I dunno, I'm just trying to give all the information possible.

Please help a stranger with an unusual problem! I'd be forever indebted if you could help me solve this issue! I can't even save in Premiere Pro without freezing the program. Sometimes when I press the power button Windows doesn't even boot. Something is seriously wrong.

Hi guys,

I need your help. I have built quite a few computers over the years but I just cant seem to be able to solve this problem

I built this new computer and at the first boot everything was working fine.
I did some minor changes (or at least that is what I think). But now my graphics card doesn?t give out any video signal.

I have moved the graphics card to another computer where it worked fine so I suspect it was something in bios that I changed that has caused this.. though I cant see how or what I could have done.

The only thing I changed that referenced the graphics card was that I noticed that in bios the setting ?Primary Graphics Adapter? was set to ?PCI? as I have an AGP card I assumed this should be changed to ?AGP? so I changed that.
The boot up sequence sounds like it is working fine, just that the there is no video signal.
Also I have cleared CMOS which didnt seem to make any difference.
My motherboard is 939Dual-SATA2, and I have tried with 2 different AGP cards neither worked in this new computer

Has anyone got any ideas?


A:Need your help guys - Getting no video signal out of my Video card.

try resetting the cmos. your motherboard maunual should have the instructions for manually resetting th e cmos by moving the cmos jumper. if not just unplug the machine and hhold the power buttonin for several seconds to drain any residual power then remove the cmos battery and let it set for 15 min. then reseat the cmos battery and power up. it should oot with the default cmos settings.

recently I have wanted to get into video editing and I decided to try out a few different video editing software tools. I tried windows movie maker 2.6 first and it kept skipping when I would preview clips and freezing. The same thing is happening with the trial version of adobe's premiere elements 9 trial version. For adobe, it told me to download the latest video driver that was compatible so i did and it allowed me to see my videos and use it a little bit but it would not be able to keep up and would freeze occasionally. Does this have to do with my graphics card? This is what I could find of my computers information (i typed dxdiag in run):


Operating system: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit (6.1, Build 7600)
System Manufacturer: TOSHIBA
System model: Satellite A505
BIOS: InsydeH20 Version 1.20
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU Q 720 @ 1.60GHz (8 CPUs), ~1.6GHz
Memory: 4096MB RAM
DirectX Version: DirectX11

And I guess this is my graphics card:

Name: NVIDIA GeForce 310M
Chip Type: Geforce 310M
DAC Type: Integrated RAMDAC
Approx. Total Memory: 2256 MB
Current Display mode: 1366 x 768 (32 bit) (60Hz)

Well guys, first post *woo*.

I have looked all over the internet for an answer to this problem, but I cannot find one. You see, in my setup menu (or rather the BIOS? I don't really know. The thing that you press F2 for after seeing "acer" or "DELL") there is no video options tab. Just, if I remember correctly, "information, Security, Boot, Exit", and one other thing that shows the time, date, and total RAM. I cannot however highlight total RAM or video RAM (I have about 120 MB of VRAM, 4GB of total). So how do I change shared video memory if there is no video tab? I'm looking to boost performance (even if it's only by a little bit) in games. I'm willing to share more PC info, just ask

A:Hello guys. I would like to know how to change shared video memory.

You can't. The BIOS is the only place that would allow you to, and apparently your system manufacturer chose to hide some advanced BIOS features so they can't be changed. Sadly this is typical, unless you build your own computer.

In any case, your onboard video probably used shared system memory beyond the 128MB allocated to it anyway, if it needs to. I wouldn't actually expect any performance increase from upping the dedicated video memory even if you could.

Oh, sorry, my manners... Welcome to SevenForums.

I am a complete begginner at video editing and would like to know how it is possible to add logos and watermarks over MPEG or AVI videos. Like in cricket, when the LBW replays come on, there is a line to show the line of the stumps, can anyone help on how to do that???

I do a fair bit of video editing and I have recently upgraded the ram to 8gb and gone to win 7 64bit.

I built the pc a few weeks back and have yet to add a card. It appears gaming is the main priority and wonder if anyone has any first hand experience with a good card.

I'm confused by the wording of your question. I believe that you're noting that consumer cards are mainly reviewed in the context of gaming, but that you're looking for a good card for video editing. Is that correct?

I don't do video editing, so I can't offer advice there. It may not matter much, unless your software can use the GPU to accelerate some of its processing. If the software supports Cuda, you'd need an nVidia card. AMD is pushing OpenCL, but I have the impression that not much software currently for sale supports that yet.

I know there are loads of programs for editing video, but are there any that will let me change things like brightness, contrast, colour balance, etc. Freeware or dem's preferably, until I find something I like.

I'm pretty much a novice when it comes to video. I would certainly appreciate any help you guys can give me.

I ripped some of my personal DVD's, and would like to edit some of them, and combine them with other video.

My question is: What program works well for converting the VOB files to another format, and what format would maintain the highest resolution for my eventual convertion back to a DVD? (Memory is not a problem.)

Thanks in advance,

I have a small video clip I took with my Kodak C743 camera. It is too dark and I would like to lighten it . This I can do in Windows Media Player but it does not let me save my changes. I can't see them putting those tools in there if we can't use them. I must be doing something wrong but I don't know what. By the way, with this camera a .mov format is used. I changed it to .avi and it still doesn't let me save the video. Any Suggestions?

I have tried to use camtasia studio and windows movie maker to edit clips I made with fraps

so camtasia suffers from
- half way through editing it frezes
- some times I cant produce videos
- when it does produce it only produces 9 seconnds of the video
- I cant see the video in the editer viewer. half of the time it wont read the video, says a codec editer


it can not read half of the clips it says it may be corrupted even though I can watch the clip with no problomes. It gives me error 0xC94601C

help please

A:can not do video editing

fraps uses a codec (FPS1) that may not be compatible with other editors - transcoding (converting) the files may be a problem as not many converters handle the fraps codec.
In fraps do you get a choice of codecs when exporting your video? if so use fraps to re-export the video using a different codec, then bring the clip into Moviemkaer or Camtasia Studio.
Here is a solution that seems to have worked for this person.
