    Well what I have done is bought a new system. I have tried just about everything and that is the only thing Tech Support at GV suggested. I got a great deal for a core 2 duo with 4gig of ram from Dell.

    I will let you know how it runs on that system.

    Thanks for everyones help up to this point.

    Try starting a new project, play with it a bit. If things are working OK in the new project, try Importing the problem project into the new project - import the sequence(s).

    Sorry I did not specify what I was using before. I am using HQ AVI clips

    Well if you want to try something else, convert all clips to HQ AVI and not use any HDV clips on the timeline, that should speed up editing process, you might not be able to play them realtime because your hard drive is slow but atleast it will not tax your system CPU like HDV clips would.
    Or if you need to get this project out now, go ahead and open new project when things start to slow down again and keep working it that way until you finish this project to meet your deadline and have more time to figured out why.

    With the new project import the sequence of the original project over and see if this new project would fix the problem.
    Khoi Hi,

    I have done this and it has worked. With this particular project i have done it 4 times. It starts out great but after about 10 minutes of editing it starts to delay again. I have not tried this since I reformatted though.

    So what do i do now?

    I have ran just about every utility and no errors and edius just wont work right. It takes two hours to do 10 minutes worth of work.

    Do i need a faster processor for Edius 4 than i needed in Edius 3?


    Here is what i have:

    2Gig Ram, Tyan Mother board S2676, WinXP Pro, NVIDIA Geforce 6600, Edius 4.6, 2 3.2 Gig processors.

    They look fine to me, read speeds a bit slow but they are IDE drives,

    No.

    I am editing HDV files in and HDV project. Everthing is set up exactly the way things have always been.

    It seems like its getting worse and worse.

    do you have unusual files in your project such as mpeg video, mpeg audio, ac3 audio, windows media files etc? all these can cause this exact slowness

    I ran the test and it went through 5 passes successfully.

    Try removing the ram for a few seconds, you could also try clearing the CMOS on the mother board, if you have got windows up and running do a disk check on the next reboot, you could have bad or dead sectors in the drive,
