    Windows XP Intel Core 2CPU [email protected] 2GB of Ram. Not sure what hard drive info you need (yes, I'm blonde)

    Working with SD. Number of layers and effects varies, but for example at moment have two layers of motions, one with chromokey and one video filter (colour wheel), the other with three filters (mono, soft focus and old movie). Also have one clip with speed increased to 3000% which immediately puts it into overload.

    Project settings are PAL 720 x 576 16bit 50/1 48000hz

    Please let me know if you need any other info, and I'll do my best! Hope you can help.
    Thanks in advance...
    Which version of Edius are you using?

    When you try to get this to play, are you just pressing the space bar? Back it up a little and then
    try shift+play or shift+spacebar and it will prefill the buffer so that it will play back for you.
    Also, make sure you have chosen the proper ram setting within Edius for RT playback. You should have anywhere from 550 to 760 buffer frames in SD.
    This depends on the setting that you have chosen.

    Are you using a dedicated video drive or are you using the C drive? You should be able to edit fairly easy with SD in Edius and that chip. However, it doesn't hurt to have a raid setup or at least a video drive.

    As far as the filters, you can use the combine filter setting and it should ease some of the pull on the system.
    Also, were the files captured through Edius as DV or imported from another system? If you captured them,
    make sure they went to your video drive and not your C drive....if you have a video drive.

    Let's start there. Hey, I got grey hair!

When I stack my clips on the timeline, change the speed and add various video filters, etc, I have to keep rendering in order to play through my timeline because the red line appears to tell me I have an overload area. Is this normal and what do I do about it? It really slows down the editing process to have to keep rendering everytime I want to play back my project.
    Post your computer specs. Include hard drive info as well. Are you trying this in HD or SD? Exactly how many layers and filters on each layer.
    The more information that you supply, the easier it will be for us to help you.
