I have made some attempts at capturing/editing HD video, but my results have been "choppy" and frames seem to be dropped during file transfer from the camera.
Here are my specs/config:
HP Pavilion a6720y
Windows Vista 64 bit
NVIDIA GeForce GT 440
AMD Phenon 9550 Quad Core 2.2Ghz
640GB SATA drive, 7200 rpm
I have tried:
Microsoft Movie Maker
Microsoft Live Movie Maker
Adobe Premier Elements 8
along with a few others, all with the similar reults
I copy the video files from the camcorder to the hard drive via USB 2.0 and then try to edit, but even before I edit, the video file seems to be missing frames and then can get worse during editing.
Additionally, when I connect the camcorder directly to the TV, the video plays without any issues. The issues are only evident when viewing/editing on the computer.
My questions are:
- What is my main bottleneck(s)/issue(s)?
- Is it possible/worth upgrading this system to fix the problem? (go to Windows 7 64 bit, add RAM, SSD, etc.?)
- Or is starting over with a new system necessary?
Thanks for any feedback/advice
