drive speed

Good afternoon,

Well, being new to edius it seems I am always coming up with new issues I have yet to sort out.


I use external hard drives, usb driven 7200 rpm and 1tb in size. They are not raid or anything, just standard. Never had a problem in Vegas or PP.

When I am capturing with edius after about 9 minutes its stops capturing and says the drive is not fast enough.

Hum. does that mean the drive is not turning fast enough, or not transmitting fast enough?

If the drive is perhaps half full it will pop up sooner!!

I tried it on both of my computers and I get the same thing..


Options: More expensive as you go down the list!!!

1. purchase a fire wire drive.

2. purchase a 2tb esata drive

3. Instal a velociraptor for OS, then the two remaining Tb Hard drives configure as raid 0

Is there anything I can do about that in general????

Are you capturing using native format or HQ AVI?

Why not just capture with Vegas if it works. Edius is my main video editor but I never capture with it. For HDV or DV I always use Vegas as I find it more convenient. Since Edius will work with native HDV files I only convert to HQ for AVCHD when I have more than one track to edit.

In most cases it's not a storage/transfer speed issue. What happens is this: your camcorder is delivering the video, Edius transcodes "on the fly" and transfers the resulting video to the storage. If anything going on on the computer at this time manages to overload either your processor or your RAM, the process gets intrerupted because the tape will not stop rolling.

Capturing to Canopus HQ works flawlessly on dedicated workstations where nothing else is being done at the same time, but on regular computers there are a number of things that might start working even without you knowing (antivirus stuff being the most notorius).

As advised above, try using another app for capture. If Vegas works for you, use that; I always use HDV Split, a free program found on the internet. You then have the option of either working with the m2t file or transcode it to Canopus HQ if you need heavy processing.
