Pinnacle Studio 12 hangs during rendering of AVCHD files, each time in different frame. No msg, just freezes.
Total length of project is 30 min, footage from Sony HDR TG3 (not HD, 1440x1080 m2ts files).
Max length rendered was 8 min, minimal 30 sec.
PC – 2 years old Sony VAIO laptop, Vista Home, 2 G RAM, Dual Processors, 200 G HDD, 25 G free.
Task Manager shows during rendering 100% utilization on both processors and RAM.
Pinnacle site advised uninstall / install, get rid of unnecessary transitions – this did not help.
Pinnacle Studio 12 used to work ok with video captured from old camcorder (lower resolution 640x320 if memory serves me right).
