  • Settings to optimize my Edius 6 system

    Hopefully this is the right forum for this request.

    I've got three concerts to edit int the next week, so I want to make sure I'm operating as efficiently as possible. I do not have a state-of-the-art computer, but can edit pretty well - I just want to eliminate whatever bottlenecks I can. I'm cutting concerts shot with 3 1080i cameras in Multicam mode. I don't have enough hard-drive speed, so I am editing in Proxy mode in Multicam, tough it plays fine after I compress to a single track. I generally tend to use only color correction, dissolves and fades.

    My system has:
    Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Q8300
    4 gigs of RAM
    Windows 7 Professional

    Since I installed Edius 6, I upgraded by graphics card to an ATI 5700 series PCIe card - I think a 5770, but I'm not sure.

    What settings do I need to tweak to maximize performance?

      Any setting for Edius specifically? All those seem to be about keeping Windows from slowing Edius down, but I'm not sure my Edius installation is optimized, especially as I have changed the video card since the install. Or is the default install of Edius set up to find the GPU in the video card and use it to speed up MPEG encoding/decoding?
