unexpectedly quits when zoom in and out in timeline
on Jan 15, 2011 at 5:51:55 pm

I am using footage that I converted with ClipWrap 2.2

At first everything was great and I was very happy with the quality of the video. However now the program crashes all the time. I notice it happen when I zoom in and out in the time line and the thumbnails of clips load up. I am at my wits end with it. I have tried trashing prefs., opening a new project and starting over, diskwarrior, adding more memory (4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 FB-DIMM). The only thing l can think of is a new video card (I have a NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT). Before I spend the money on this I was wondering if anybody had any ideas?

Thanks

When items are loading slow that means it's coming off your media array too slowly.

What format are you editing?

What is your media array and how large is it?

How much room do you have on it?

When was the last time you cleaned it off? (erased and reformatted)

Thank you walter for you help.

I am afraid I am not totally sure what you are asking me (obviously I am new to this).

The format is mov its the default settings of clipwrap 2.2 (1920x1080 Codec: Linear PCM H.264 Timecode Color profile: HD(1-1-1) 2 Audio Channels

And by media array Ill assume you me the hard drive that all of my MOV files are saved on. Its a 500 GB drive that I reformatted a couple of weeks ago 207 GBs of which are footage.

Here's probably way too much detail on this.

I just tried using media manager which seemed to work for awhile but then the crashing started up again.
