    Hi Anton-
    I don't get to see a timeline. It's the same problem described by others in this post: edius starts up, asks- everytime- for me to select a folder for it (this usually only happens once when you first start it after it's installed) then hangs for a moment showing project settings, and crashes.
    Here's 'Zorro" from the first page:-
    double click the Edius icon, program starts and I can choose my default folder. Then, I generate a new preset (no preset is saved until then). When clicking ok I wait some seconds for a preset icon to show up but it won't. 'Edius encountered a problem...' message appears and that's it. It makes no difference if I disable the Storm or not. OHCI only has the same result.

    Side note: I can open old projects but when I try to change project settings Edius will also crash when trying to generate the preset icon.
    Here's another user:
    The same thing happens here too,exactly as described above, on 3 different systems.
    All have AMD CPU's and 1 GB Ram, nvidia cards.
    I also tried on a fresh install of the OS.
    DirectX was updated to the latest vers.
    Version 4.24 works, though.
    One thing you can do about it is to start your project directly on the file, not by starting Edius from the desktop icon or from the Programs menu.
    This is what's happening to me. Can't believe there isn't a solution!
    I'll try PMing them...

    what are the clips on timeline? Canopus DV or other?

    was the project started as OHCI SD 48k or 32k 50i or 59.97i frame rate?

    Apologies for bringing this up again....
    I'm trying to get edius neo running on an xp pro amd xp2400+ machine with a geforce fx 5200 card. I get the exact same problem many here experienced: it hangs, then crashes on start-up.
    Never gets past the start-up screen.
    I have QT 7 and direct x 9.c and have updated neo to 1.1
    Following suggestions here, I've saved then copied some "empty" projects on a flash drive, and copied them to the amd machine. Projects started by double-clicking in explorer do start- and seem to run- perfectly ok. I can import material, edit, save, save as, etc.
    So I CAN finally edit!
    But if I try to change the project settings- immediately neo crashes.
    This seems to have been a fairly common problem in Edius 4.51- especially for people with amd chips and/or storm cards. It must be related to project settings or setting up a new project somehow?
    I'm hoping someone has found a solution- or at least a reason for this! I'm relieved to have a work-around, but I'd also love a genuine "fix"!

    O yeah sorry for that got the chipsets confused but those where some time ago. he he

    Details

    I uploaded a picture with the details of the crash.
    It has been taken on a A7N8X-X / AMD Barton 3000+ / 1 Gb RAM / 400 Gb / AGP GF6600 trying to start Edius Pro v4.51c

    As I posted before, I get the same crash on 3 different AMD configs.

    The same version works though on AMD X2 Dual-Core 4600+ and a Core2Duo 6600, both with Asus MB and 2 Gb of RAM.

    I can only start it by starting Edius from the project file directly.

    My P4 Williamette here has only SSE and SSE2 - and it works fine with EDIUS v4.52.
    It's too slow to use for "real" editing, but it works fine for testing behavior.

    Brandon, V4.24 runs like a charm. Even the Ati hardware renderer does a decent job, Boris and Vitascene, too.

    Maybe someone can comment on the CPU not being SSE3 capable. Is this the root of all evil?

    Oops, dang numbers always confuse me.

    *Shrug* Well, if you're sure everything's running right then it's something else weird.

    The 760MP was okay. The 760MPX was the problem chipset, at least for the Athlon MP days.

    The K7 was on the certified board list. Canopus even used it for their high end turnkey CWS-100.

    But if I am not wrong it uses the not so good mp760 chipset the same as the 2460.

    To clarify:

    1. The board isn't the TigerMP, it's the Thunder K7.

    2. Power isn't an issue and Edius 4.24 works flawlessly.

    3. The graphics card is an Ati X1950Pro with 256MB Ram and eg capable to run Vitascene on the machine.

    reduce graphics card hardware acceleration by a few notches just for testing

    if Edius now works, the problem is your graphics card or driver not suitable for 4.5

    be sure to reset acceleration to max after testing

    Do you have an older graphics card to try? The Tiger MP is AGP 2x/4x only and had some finicky power issues to begin with, so a modern high-powered graphics card might be pushing things too far.

    I can't believe that SSE3 is a must since TGV doesn't point it out anywhere.

    So, is this a bug or Edius v4.5x does not support non SSE3 cpu's?
