Hi,
I bought my PC 1,5 year ago and this time (I hope) it was quite good (for PD8 anyway).
Now, with PD9, seems my PC is "older and slower" - editing and producing FULL HD videos is slower and PD9 wants time to time rendering my videos. Seems, I have similar problems what User tkeeg has: http://forum.cyberlink.com/forum/posts/list/16396.page
I compared System Requirements of PD9 and my PC and seems, I should buy a new CPU Processor and everything what is connectid with it. Am I right?!
1. Can you recommend me better video formats for my existing PC?! Camera is Sony CX360VE http://www.sony.lv/product/cam-high-definition-on-memory-stick/hdr-cx360ve#pageType=TechnicalSpecs
2. If I should change my PC CPU Processor as CL recommends, what processor you could recommend me? Change wont be cheap and I dont want to spend money when every new PD version comes out
Diagnostic file and clips mediainfo are in Attach.
Best Regards

I have a similar system and I edit HD videos. It is somewhat .slow and can bog down on larger projects, but I haven't seen an immediate need to upgrade. It even seems to run better on PD9 than PD8. I have noticed that I have the most problems with AVCHD 1080, as your image shows. I have more recently noticed that is seems to be worse with interlaced video than it is with progressive. Unfortunately my camera shoots only interlaced, so I'll have to live with it for now.

If you are having problems, I don't see a problem jumping out at me fro your dxdiag. I do know that Andrew has reported problems with the Sony and SVRT. That could cause long render times. __________________________________

Hi there -

Yes - your mid-range dual core processor is going to have trouble with some clips recorded on your Sony. If you're recording on the higher settings (1920x1080 @ 28MBps),you'd probably be experiencing occasional melt-downs!

CPU: http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_lookup.php?cpu=Pentium+Dual-Core+E5300+%40+2.60GHz

Depending on your selected recording mode & the complexity of your projects, you may need to consider upgrading your GPU also.

GPU: http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/video_lookup.php?gpu=GeForce+9800+GT

PD9's (advertised) blistering speed is partially attributable to the 64-bit build of the software, which your 32-bit system cannot take advantage of.

Probably, recording at lower resolutions/bitrates would help your PC cope more adequately.

Do you have a wealthy benefactor???
