  • Edius 5 with eeePC: cutting and assembling ? info please.

    Hi, in the 2-3 days I will spend my holidays out of home. I will bring with me my small eePC. It is Asus 1000HE (1.66 Ghz). Could I use that eePC for editing?
    With it I will do only the first processing of editing and that is cutting and assembling of the clips only. Will it be possible? Will 1.66 Ghz be enough?
    Thanks

    Should be. Brandon has an eeePC, so he may offer further comment.

      What are the Disk space and RAM specs on the unit? That will be a very important requirement to the success.

        The 1000HE has a real hard drive for storage (compared to my 901 which has SSD for storage), so there's little worry of excessive SSD wear with the editing.

        However, the 1.8-inch drive is slow and not designed for high-performance applications.

        I would definitely upgrade RAM to 2 GB. You should also consider a USB drive for video assets.

        The Atom CPU is a bit faster than the old Celeron-Ms and P3 Mobiles, but it's definitely not as fast as the Core2 or i7 CPUs.

        Also, the screen size is on the small side and the internal graphics is Intel-native.

        It'll probably be marginally usable, but I would lean more toward a small (12-inch) notebook over a netbook for video purposes.

        The netbooks are great for general office-type use, but high-performance applications is not what they're designed for.

          Ulisse, congrats on the eee!
          I'm replying on mine now.

          Edius requires a screen size larger than the standard 1024 x 600 (eee standard)
          Lucky for us, the screen can be sized larger the physical viewing area. It does a good job off moving the desktop around when in this mode.

          I have not installed E5 on mine, but it should work fine.
          E4 works adequately on my old P4 laptop.

          I do use the Sony cliip browser with it and it's great.

              Thanks for your suggestion, I'd like to try an external HD. Then I will reply my test.

                Don't you need a minimum screen resolution of 1024x768 for Edius? That would seem to be a deal breaker.

                  Eee 901 (900?) and newer support panned 1024x768 resolution on its 1024x600 screen.

                  It also supports compressed 1024x768 resolution scaled to the 1024x600 screen, but this seems to be done in software and is significantly slower graphics performance compared to the panned mode.

                    I don't think any one should torture himself like that. I like the advice of getting 12 inch notebook better.

                      Yes you do, but my eee does 1920x1080 panned on the 10" screen and 2048x1536 to an external vga monitor!

                      I'd install Edius 4 and it should do plenty.

                      On the downside, I have no 1394a...
                      but I'm moving away from tape.

                        Hi, I have just done a test with my Asus 1000HE and Edius 5.1 with 1024x600 screen (for default) and USB external drive. I am not able to see some buttos but I am enough satisfied. It works fine but when I view the clips on the timeline (on the small Edius monitor) I see a very rough film. I think it losts some frames. Could I solve this problem?
                        thanks

                          Your poor playback makes sense because you are both CPU-limited and disk transfer speed-limited.

                            What about making proxy files?
                            You can export all files to mpeg 1 and restore the to full version when you are on you desktop.



                            Be sure to select ignore file extension and edius will do its magic.

                            I have done this with 16X9 sd files and it works very good.
