  • Playback is a bit choppy

    Hi there. I have an Edius 6.05 system, in which I edit full hd footage shot from a JVC GY - HM7000. We also have an Edius 5 workstation, which plays back the footage from this camera without any kinds of interference. In the Edius 6 workstation, which was bought afterwards and is a superior machine, playback is abit choppy, like the video was deinterlaced. This makes it impossible to tell which shots are deinterlaced and which are not. Playback is fluid when it comes out of the HDMI output to the LED screen we have attached to it. It isn't fluid in the editing workflow, and when we have someone talking in direct speech, it even looks out of sync by three frames, more or less.

    What can be causing this and what can I do to solve it?
    I already cleaned the registry. I formatted the pc two weeks ago and the problem seemed solved in the first day of work, only to return the day after.

    I opened an earlier project I haven't opened in months. Video was fluid during the first minutes of work, became choppy shortly afterwards. Full screen playback is even more choppy.

    Please help!

    When playing the timeline, check what Edius is showing in its Buffer settings (bottom status bar) during a smooth section and a choppy section. Does the buffer go to (near) zero?

    What happens if you preload the buffer when first playing a choppy section (Shift-Space)? Is it smooth for a few seconds?

        The settings of the project are

        1920x1080
        50i 16:9 8bit

        The specs of all files are

        Frame size: 1920x1080
        Aspect Ratio:16:9
        Field Order: Top Field First
        Stream Type: MPEG2 Video
        Frame Rate: 25

        On the expansion info it says:

        [Stream Type]
        XDCAM EX Stream

        [Video Information]
        MPEG2 Video

        Size : 1920 x 1080

        [Audio Information]
        Linear PCM

        Yesterday, the video ran smoothly, today it's choppy again.
        Nothing happens when I hit shift + space, except the normal playback.
        Buffer always reads 127/128.

        Hope this helps!
        Thank you

          Those type files play like silk on my machine. Notice it is a Core 2 Quad.
          Either the file is corrupt or there is a setting, or two, off on your setup.

            Xdcam EX files including those from the JVC camera should play without an issue even on a lower end machine.
            If the files play smooth one time and then not there most likely is something not right with the system.
            I tested some EX files in 6.05 and have no issues.

              The files run smoothly in an older pc with an older version of EDIUS.
              I know this should be normal, but my computer is a bizarre singularity that has all kinds of strange ocurrences that appear to happen to only me.

              Has anyone got a clue of why is this happening?
              I even formatted the pc, and in the first day everything ran smoothly, the next day everything was choppy again.

              Please, every help is needed!
              Thanks!

                it should be reading 31/32

                your buffer is set too high in system settings, set it to default of 128/5

                EDIUS is a 32bit app and may run low on memory because of your high buffer setting

                also, be sure EDIUS is excluded from any anti-virus scanner and that defender is disabled (enabled by default by Microsoft)

                  I tried all you suggestions, to no avail.
                  Smooth playback is a completely random feature on my computer.

                      Maybe problem with your hard drive / faulty SATA cable?

                        No problems with hard drive or memory, in my opinion, since the video plays smooothly when coming out of an hdmi cable into a led TV.

                        When EDIUS is in standby without playback, the memory usage in task manager reads 336.352K.

                        When it plays back, it spikes to above 944K.

                          it appears you have Windows XP because there is no way Win7/64 will idle with only 330MB memory usage, but this figure is typical of XP

                              Win7 will not operate with 330MB unless you disabled all services except the boot loader, in which case you will never do anything useful with EDIUS
