    But is it not in relation to RAM? For example, can I increase the buffer to 2 or 3 GB to edit UHD if now there are 12 GB RAM only in my PC?

      of course you can, if you set EDIUS buffer to 4GB, it will take 4GB from your 12GB

      if you have several programs open including Photoshop, you may or may not run low on memory, try it

        Hi Ulisse.

        Try increasing the buffer and see what happens. Do various tests and see what happens. I doubt very much that you will see any difference in what I've said, regardless of what anyone else has said.

        The simple fact is that, in your particular scenario, the buffer won't make any difference what so ever.

        Your particular issue is probably down to CPU, as it is with most people.

        Seriously, I wish some people would give recommendations based on real world experience, rather than making up some fanciful utopian dream that they seem to have in their heads.

        Or put it this way. If increasing the buffer or adding more RAM, made any difference. Then why wouldn't everyone just add more RAM instead of increasing CPU capability?

        Or better still. If anyone else can prove me wrong. Simply prove it with video evidence. Instead of feeding fanciful disinformation.

        In fact. When has anyone seen a noticeable improvement in realtime Edius performance, along the lines of Ulisse' predicament, by simply increasing RAM? If anyone can prove this, maybe by a simple video example, I will forever keep my big mouth shut.

        Cheers,
        Dave.

        Is your Robot three laws safe?

          as I said many times before, increasing memory allows you to have many programs open and you won't run out of memory

          yes, CPU speed is number one, the more you spend on CPU, the better the performance

            Anton.

            With all due respect, and I do sincerely mean that, after all, we both know what we are talking about.

            But, this post was about RAM and buffer with Edius, nothing else. After all, Ulisse didn't mention anything else.

            So again, and with all due respect. What has any other program, or programs, got to do with his question?

            His question is exactly what I responded to. It was only about RAM with Edius and the OS, nothing else.

            Cheers,
            Dave.

              Until the OP's workflow is revealed, assuming that he is only running Edius and Windows simultaneously, is a guess.
              If Windows and Edius are the only items used simultaneously, 8gb of ram would work provided the CPU was fast enough to push the product.

              He is using an old X58 980x with 12gb of ram to edit native 4K material. Memory isn't the issue here, it is his processor. I have already suggested
              to the OP to convert all of his 4k footage to HQX and edit in 1920x1080 to increase the fluidity of Edius while editing 4K with that machine.

              Converting to HQX and editing in 1920x1080 are the two best solutions for the circumstances.
