Thread: Video Clips Playing Jerky in Editing Software

    Question Video Clips Playing Jerky in Editing Software

    I've been editing home movie clips successfully for years. But just got a nice HD camera and now when I try to edit in PowerDirector or ImageMixer, the clips are too jerky in the editing window to work with them. I have a Sony Vaio computer and it's not new, but it has a pretty good graphics card.

    Anything I can do to fix this?

    Thanks.

    You may need faster drives for HD. Don't use your main system drive to save files, save them to a separate drive or array. Some use multiple drives striped together as a RAID array for best performance. Also, get more RAM for your system. For AVCHD, make sure you have four or more CPU cores, as well. A 64 bit application like Premiere Pro or Sony Vegas will also aid and assist playback of HD files much better than consumer software. Hope that helps.

    AVCHD files require a lot of processor work so a quad core at least will help, turn of any things running in the background that are not required.
