I am currently facing a few problems with the “making movie” process.
I am using Windows XP, Pinnacle Studio 9….
The problems are:
1) Using Mpeg, the estimate file size and the end-point file size does not tally, in the end, the file is often larger than the estimate…
2) When I try to make it in an Avi format, I noticed using different compression codec gives different estimate file size… which codec should I use so that it can be played in most PCs or even burned as DVD disc?
3) When I try to make it in an Avi format, using one compression codec, the rendering process freezes at about 21 mins and when I abort the process the whole program hangs “Not Responding”. And when using another compression codec that gives a smaller estimate file size), the rendering process is so slow that after left to render over night only less then 10mins of the movie is processed.
4) I am thinking of changing my software... It is Pinnacle Studio 9 now, what other software would u recommand? I was thinking of Ulead.... is it good?
Are there anything I can do to solve these problems especially #3?
Please note, I’m quite a newbie in this and am not really that tech savy…. Please excuse my ignorance….
