Video stutters on rendered playback. Not sure if settings are correct. Using AP6.0 / G4 400mhz / OS9.22 / 1gb ram. Set virtual memory to off. Set memory minimum & preferred in program to 200000. Only other pgm running is AE 5.5. Is there anything else I could adjust or check (beside my brain, that is)? As always, thanks in advance for any feedback.
Sorry for the incomplete information. I’m shooting with a little Canon ZR 20 consumer camera and capturing through a firewire onto an internal drive. Something that may have a bearing on this could be a 200gb firewire drive that is used to store the video, once captured. I take it from there for editing. I had lots of trouble capturing from the firewire camera to the firewire drive but worked around it by using another drive (not firewire).
I just feel there’s something not set right somewhere since the Premiere video is now stuttering. Playing back 740×480 or 640×480 Quicktime’s from the desktop is the same way. If I render everything down to a 320×240 it goes away. I also have a little Imac that doesn’t seem to do the stuttering the G4 does and it has less memory.
Sorry again for rambling. Hope you have some thoughts.
Just put the computer into render mode for a half hour talking head using cleaner ez. That process takes upwards of 10+ hours so won’t get control back until tomorrow. The output there is a 320×240 quicktime I copy onto CD’s.
As far as hard drives go, I’m using a 10gb as the master for programs and OS. I have a 60gb partitioned in half which are used for storing projects; Premiere, After Effects, etc. I use the 200gb firewire, as said earlier, for graphic and video storage. To the best of my memory the latter spins at 7200 while the others are 4800. I’m leaving now for my other job and will return to check emails in the morning. Can’t thank everyone enough for their input.
