  • Buffer problem

    When playing Canopus HQ files off the timeline in Edius 4.52 I find the buffer is regularly emptying out, causing the playback to stop. This is both on my desktop with 2.66 Duo processor and laptop with 2.33, using external SATA hard drives. It happens maybe 3 out of 4 times I try to playback material.

    How can I overcome this?
    Desktop: Intel Vernonia-R Server Board, dual Xeon 5420 2.5Ghz (8 cores), Vista Ultimate 64 Bit, 12 GB RAM, NVidia 9800Gt 512MB graphics, 320 GB system drive, 2x1TB Seagate editing drives (not in RAID), 30 inch HP monitor.

    Laptop: Toshiba Portege R700 2.66 Ghz cpu, 4GB RAM, 500GB hard drive

    Does your source material match your Project Setting?

    If not, your PC must convert on the fly!
