  • Growing delays when switching from and to Edius

    As soon as projects reach a certain - but rather modest - size there is a delay when switching applications (e.g. from Edius to Photoshop, AfterFX or even QuickTitler). The larger the project the longer that delay.
    Is this a RAM problem? I have 1GB on that Edius machine and wonder if an extra GB would help. Or are people with 2GB having this problem also?

    I have also this problem with 2 GB Ram.
    Then 3 GB ? More ?

      Not the answer I wanted to hear. It is not a RAM problem then. I hope it gets solved sometime, because I switch to and from AfterEffects/Photoshop etc a lot.

        Just curious .... are running a virus protection software on your editing machine and is it running when you edit.

        I use AVAST virus protection and I was recently having this problem as well. I finally figured it out. It was AVAST running in the background. Now if I am working and I have trouble switching between apps I just remember to disable AVAST and bam...instant switching. Something in the way it is running in the background really slowed app switching. I only notice the problem though if it is Edius I am switching back and forth between. All other apps play fine with it.
        Main System. MSI G33m Motherboard, Intel Q6600 CPU, 2GB Ram, GeForce 9500GT, 7200rpm System drive. WinXP. Lots of external eSATA drives.

        Laptop. Sony Vaio. CPU- i7-Gen 3, 8gb RAM, 1tbb 5400rpm hard drive, AMD GPU

          Indeed I my testing the Application switching delay happens when:
          1 Anti virus is running (Avast is the one we tested)
          2 Notebook or PC is in some kind of Power saving mode.

            Wow, I have AVAST as well. Will try this asap. Not in the studio yet, but that could be the problem. Let you know how it goes.

            EDIT/UPDATE: yes, turned AVAST off and it switches apps much faster. Thanks, I should have tried that before....after all it is one of the golden rules right ;-)
