  • Edius - Lots of HD activity and slow response

    This post is more for getting some hints and tips on possible configuration and settings to make Edius run better than actually saying there is any problem.

    The set up is this, Place a number of 720p clips on the time line along with a number of SD clips (SD clips on track above HD clips). Total time of most clips 25 minutes or so and there is a total of 3+ hours on the time line.

    System specs you can see below and I am running the last update of Edius, 7.50.

    So actually as soon as I import clips into the bin the hard drive takes off and I know it is indexing the video and also reading the audio tracks for the waveform and possibly other functions. This is the issue, if I then say need to video mute or audio mute some of the tracks, there is a huge delay in response while the system is doing whatever it is to or for the new clips I have pulled in. Scrubbing and normal play back seem to be ok once I get control back but even cutting a clip has a big delay.

    While I think I understand what is going on in the background, (and if I am incorrect , please inform me), what can be done set up or settings wise to eliminate or minimize the issue? (other than to walk away and get some coffee)

    Thanks,

    Jeff

      Tried cleaning your %temp% files and maybe enlarge your swap file.

        Open Task Manager -> Performance -> Resource Monitor and check which process(es) are responsible for the disk activity. The Disk Activity section of the Disk tab in Resource Monitor can show you the full paths of the files being read/written, you can sort it on the "Total (B/sec)" column and find the files with the most I/O.

          If it's still indexing the files you just brought into the bin then there's not really much you can do until it's finished indexing and creating waveform caches. In theory if it's AVCHD or MPEG you could turn off the 'Create seek information in the background' in the 'Accelerated seek' option, but that would probably make it awful to use on the timeline.

          The only real way to speed it up is to get a faster CPU as yours is only a 2.3Ghz laptop CPU

            Thanks and I will look into all of this. Yes a faster system would be nice, but I got this one only 3 years ago and I think the quad core with HT i7 still is a great processor.
