Question about G-Technology G-DRIVE (90801201) 250 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

G Drive I have been editing video w/ a new G Drive for about two months. It has been terrific. During use yesterday, the rendering started taking forever -- any small edit resulted in lengthy waits. I am even unable to play the videos I have already edited -- just a bunch of skipping, sound pops in and out, etc. I am using firewire, but tried USB just in case. I checked my cords. I am able to operate iMovie on desktop, so it is not a Mac issue. ALSO! when I do a SAVE AS, the G Drive is not recognized. I appreciate your help!!!

Which program are you using to render with and which drive are you asving to if you are saving out to the external drive this will be slow as the usb is about 1.4 mbs - 2 mbs I would sugest that you move all none essential files to external drive and create a floder in the main c drive called my movies or divx avi if you are converting to divx file format and have your capture files in a folder called Capture on c: drive I do large files myself raging to full dvd form and vcd and the converting time is long but I use pinnacle studio I've been using this software for 3 - 4 years now and no problems on time going to main c: drive. make sure you have at least 5-6 gig spare on c: drive for cache disable any non needed progrems and use a good program to cache your hard drive for editing program. the g drive is proberley shutting down or your usb drivers need re-installing. good luck on problem

On Pinnacle Studio 12 plus, during the 'Make Movie', some of my still photos go black for several seconds and then reappear in time for the transition or just before the transition. This is then burnt like...


Hi and Welcome,

Click on set up>video and audio preferences>unchecked background rendering>click on "used this codec for background rendering>click and choose MPEG2 for best output to disc. Now click on project preferences>click on delete button and then choose delete auxiliary files for all project and then click okay.

Setup again video and audio preferences enable full resolution preview and click okay.

Another is,

click on the completed project in the timeline, go up to "Edit," click on "select all" in the dropdown menu, then RIGHT click anywhere in the now-highlighted project and select "Copy."
Now go back up to "file" and click on "New Project." Your current timeline will close (don't worry. It's saved,) and a new blank timeline will open. Left click anywhere in the new timeline, then right click and select "paste."
After a terrifying period when you think nothing is happening, your entire project will suddenly appear in the new timeline.
Save it with a new name, then try rendering again.

Regards,

How do i download my tape to my computer so i can put the images on dvd. my camcorder is a panasonic nv-rx10eg


Install a capture card (Firewire card) in PCI slot.
Install a video editing software in PC.
Capture video in PC and edit as per requirement.
Go to 'share' or 'make movie' option to render the edited video.
Make DVD with that rendered file if you feel.

How do you relink a file to corel videostudio?


Using a USB key is the worst thing you can do when you are video editing.
When you are editing video it is best to have the video clips on your main hard drive for the best Play back and rendering performance.
Video editing software doesn't actually change the original files, it just remembers what parts of the videos you want to use and then saves that memory in a project file, it does not save the video files. when you render the video it will make a new video file.
If you make any changes to the project files (Pictures and videos) in the project (e.g. name change, location, re-save) the video editing software will no longer be able to link the files back to the project and will then prompt you to re-link the files.
Also the performance of video editing software relies a lot on the data transfer speed. when you are using a USB drive you are cutting the performance down BIG time.
When you are using VideoStudio save all the files you are editing to the hard drive in one folder. when you are done and you want to transfer the project off, select File | Smart Package. What this will do is gather all of the project files and allow you to save to a USB drive and you can transfer the project to any other computer and open the project using VideoStudio without the relinking issue.

I have to keep rendering after every little edit in final cut pro


I found a video online that helps with this problem. It might be due to your render settings. Also, some edits do in fact need rendering, some edits do not. Take a look at this video and I hope it solves your problem:

Corel x2 problem: Unable to Load Library when sharing to VCD


Hey everyone, I faced the exact same, excruciatingly frustrating problem. After a quick search, I found forum threads telling me that when Corel Video Studio was modified to suit Vista, something about its 3D transitions got messed up.

So, if you face this problem while using Corel Video Studio on Vista, check that you have removed all 3D video transitions and try rendering again.

Video Editing Do I need to upgrade?


Get a new system... Sorry if this isn't what you want to here but RD-ram is stupidly expensive. 512mb of RD-ram is usually a few hundred dollars and hard to find. Since you have RD-ram that means you also have a Pentium 4 processor, probably in the range of 1.2 -1.8 Ghz

Vegas is a great video editing program but it needs way more than speed that that to render a video (in a decent amount of time. it will render on a slower processor, it will just take forever!). You will be much happier of the results if you just replace the computer rather than try to upgrade it.
