  • Project has become non responsive

    We are using Edius 6.07 at a large broadcast facility in partnership with a Bitcentral network installation

    Workflow used by editor was to load media into one project. That project is 250 GB and he started having issues with slowness etc.

    Based on previous experience we separated the segments into individual projects. We did this by importing the Original project folder into a new project and taking only what was needed for that piece then deleting the pointers. That worked with the first 3 long form stories.

    While editing story 4 - system got slower and slower until it stopped responding. Having trouble with 'lasso' function in particular.

    Seeing timelines white out, white boarders on modules, blue wheel of pain and white screen of death. Software will crash, although we are able to re-open w/o read only status.

    Story 4 has some media in the 'Mother' project and some inside it's own transfer folder.

    We discovered offline media in the bin and it was removed. That media was never used in the sequence.

    We did copy the project to a local drive off the network and saw the same issues as above.

    We will be working to solve this issue on Monday and would like to know if there is any methods for troubleshooting a project/problem like this.

    Also, what is the best workflow for setting up long form projects on a shared network.

    Thank you in advance for any suggestions, or sympathy,

    I would start by suspecting a problem with the network speed or any other drive speed

    install speedtest.exe (free) on your local C drive and then test the maximum read speed of all drives used with the problem project
