I have just purchased Pinnacle Studio Ulitmate 11 and having such slow processing times....since I am a beginner at this...all I have been doing is taking a couple of VCD files and combining them into one AVI or MPeg 1/2 file. it is taking in upwards of 10hours. We have beyond the minimum for computer hardware but slow would be a good thing at this point. So....here is my hardware specs
Quad Core 2.6 gHz 12m L2 Cache
DDr2 800 2 gig memory
SLI vido card (2-8500 Nividias)
and we are running XP pro
now....here is this little tidbit that I am thinking maybe be causing my problem....we are running utorrent in the background...could this be my problem? I know it slows everything else down on the computer.
Any help would be appreciated.
