Thread: Some Basic Problems Having in CS4

  1. Talking Some Basic Problems Having in CS4

    Hey guys ,im having some issues in CS4 wondering if i could get some help.. when preview the vid in the timeline it runs VERY slooww... once i export the video though it runs fine , normaly i would think its the hardware but heres the specs

    • 17.0 in Display at 1440 x 900 Resolution
    • 2.0 GHz Intel Centrino 2 , 3 MB L2 Cache
    • 4GB ram, 320 GB HD (SATA), NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT with Up to 2302 MB Total Available Graphics Memory with 512 MB Dedicated

    ........i think i coverd the important stuff

    so as far as i can tell its a good if i need more power then this pls give me the heads up ,maybe i can OC the cpu or something
    oh and its a .m2ts format from a sr11...if you need anymore info just let me know..

    and my 2nd issue i think has to do with more of the sftwr...
    heres whats going on..i drop about 8min of HD video on the timeline (with no fx) and i export it i use these settings

    and its telling me its gonna come out to about 640MB
    but once its done its hitting about 1.19GB...almost 400Mb over then what
    it said it was gonna be, i know its just a estimate but 400mb over is alot to be over trying to keep it at least 720p and 1gb or less (youtube uploading)

    what settings do you guys use for uploading to youtube keeping the 720p and getting the most time?

    any advice?
    thank in advance for the help

    well to be honest thats a poor spec to edit standard definition footage. i blame your hadware, get a desktop, build one yourself if you have the time, it will save you money.

    its the CPU thats killing it ist it?....i thought it might have been that but wasnt sure....
    looks like i need to look in to some overclocking.....

    anyways...any idea on why the file size is jumping about 400Mb over then what it said it would be

    well in my experience computers are really bad at estimating, remember it's just an estimate, take it with a pinch, or a big bag of salt.

    To edit avchd smoothly you are best to aspire to a fast q core d top - avchd is crap to edit - or get a tape hdv camera - 2 cores cool for that.

    Oh i see....well i already got the cam no going back now! lol...Q Dtop it is...

    i had a feeling the estimate would be off but it really suprized me when i saw by how much.....never the less i went with WMV. 720p and it came out very nice HD(for streaming) and was only about 350mb!! just what i wanted!....bad took 4 hours for the comp/sft to encode...a 8min video...
    with that said i finally posted my video

    no editing just aa bunch of clips back to back

  7. Default

    gave it much thought and decided that if getting a Quad desktop is the only way to edit these stupid HD videos then its just what i gotta do...any advice on specs i should be looking for?...nothing extreme ..just enough to edit with out the video freezing on me...or if you know any good deals pls share..wanna stay under $1000
    \\thanks again for the pointers

    go for a q6600. it's cheaper and overclocks like hell. get an msi p45 neo3-fr board and you should get 3ghz per core with that. there are many forums on the net on how to overclock a Q6600. get 4gb of 1066mhz ram and 2 hard drives. one for the operating system and one for all of the media files and projects. the 9500GS 512MB will do and 64bit vista will do fine.

    wel.. to be honest. that hp is fine. try and get a seccond hard drive though
