  • Wrong spec. PC?

    Hi,

    I've just downloaded and installed the trial version of Edius Pro4... As soon as I start it up it crashes. The first time it crashed, I managed to start a new project somehow... but now I can't get it to do anything.

    Is this perhaps to do with the fact that I've only got a 1.8 GHz (AMD Athlon XP 2200+) CPU and the minimum spec says 3 GHz? I'm probably going to upgrade soon anyway, but I'm just wondering if it's to do with my CPU or perhaps some strange issue?

    Thanks for your help!

    Edius may work with 2200+, but probably somthng else...

    If you're upgrading, go with Core2Duo at least. P4 is done. The slowest Core2 will easily work with Edius.

      Is there any difference in getting a Core2Duo and an AMD X2, in terms of Edius performance?

        I think Core 2 Duo is the way to go at the moment, until the next greatest thing comes along.

          I have an AMD x2 4800. It runs pretty good even with HD stuff. I built it over a year ago and at that time AMD dual cores were better than Intels. The Core2Duo from Intel way surpassed what AMD was doing. I just built out a Core2Duo E6600 (the best bang for the buck a few months back) for our corporate company and did some unofficial Edius testing with it. It smoked the AMD I have. I was running 2 and 3 layers in native HDV (no upconverted to HQ) with multicam and is was happily running along. My AMD can't touch that.

          If you have the money you won't be disappointed with the Core2Duo. You will be in heaven compared to what you have now. It will blow you away.

            I couldn't agree more with Philip, I run an X2 XP4600 and it handles HDV quite well, my old computer was an XP3000 but it struggled with RT playback with more than 2 overlays or filters, I also have a laptop with an early core 2 duo T2400 core and it also has no problem with HDV. If you are going to upgrade go for one of the latest Intel core 2 duo's the faster the better

              A low-end processor will cause the program to run slowly, but it won't cause it to crash. If you've been able to start and use the program in the past, something else is wrong.

              At what point does Edius crash, and what error message -- if any -- do you get? Is your system up-to-date with Windows updates etc?

                Thanks for the advice! I'm not sure if I can afford a Core2Duo, but I'll see...

                It crashes straight after the "Recent Project selection" dialogue comes up, the error message is the usual: "An unhandled win32 exception occurred in EDIUS.exe [3396]"

                It crashed like this before (the first time I tried) when I clicked the start button, but once I created a project and reloaded it after it crashed, it worked. But now it doesn't work, so anyone got any ideas?

                My system is up-to-date with all Windows updates as far as I know...
