To rehash a 6 month old thread...


How are you guys finding Edius 5.5 on laptops now that it boosts avchd?

Hi Denny,

Edius 5.5 edits in real time without transcoding the AVCHD files on my quad core laptop. Just transfer the files from the card, bring them into the bin window and they are ready to edit. It's a huge time saver for Same Day Edits. Life is good...so much better than a year ago when we were transcoding AVCHD files.

What speed quad core Mark?

Curious what the min power needs to be.

Glad to hear you don't need an i7 laptop to do SDE!

Hi Denny,

My laptop is a quad core 2.26 ghz with 4 gb of DDR3 ram. It's almost a year old so those specs may be out of touch with today's systems, I don't know. I haven't kept up with the trends in laptops. When we were shopping for a laptop there was just one or two i7's on the market and they were sky high, so we went with the quad core and have been very happy with it.

I tried loading AVCHD footage on my Home Vista laptop, an HP dv9700 core duo 2.0gHz. With Edius 5.5, I was shocked that I could still play without any stutter! When I tried scrubbing fast, it felt "sticky" but I was able to edit nevertheless. Edius 5.5 is amazing. Footage and project was 1440x1080 60i. Haven't tried 1920x1080, will try very soon.

Ok, I just tried 1920x1080 60i with the same laptop above, and it plays back 5 seconds, then the buffer runs out. If I pre-fill the buffer (126 frames) it will play about 15 seconds. Scrubbing was choppy as expected.

It looks like editing is still possible with a duo core laptop if you're shooting 1280x720 or 1440x1080, but 1920x1080 will choke it.

Just to keep the discussion going on. Are you guys using Integrated Graphics? Does Edius take any advantage of mid range graphic cards? Any using any quad cores from the AMD Family?

When i finally buy my HMC40, I will buy a PC in order to edit the content since my current PC is beyond updating. Athlon Xp 1800+ @ 1.6ghz less than a gig of regular DDR =)

Aaaanyway, I'm planning to hook myself up with:
AMD x6 1055t
8GB of DDR3 1333 Ram
Radeon 5770 1GB Ram (or a Nvidia GTX 260 with 896 GB RAM)

That would be the main components of a rig i plan to build myself. It was either that or a lower end i5 which i don't want as I would prefer an i7 CPU but there are too expensive.

Thanks for the replies.
