Applications :: IMovie Delay When Playing And General Lagginess?

Dec 21, 2010

When working in iMovie things always seem a little laggy. Like pressing the space bar to play, there is always a delay before it actually starts. And when dragging clips in it's definitely less than smooth. Is this a CPU thin or a RAM thing or neither. Just wondering if I'd see some improvement bumping up to 8GB of RAM or if not

Applications :: Won't Work With Imovie / Not Playing Sound

May 3, 2010

I have to do this video project and I used Photobooth with the Macbook iSight to record it and I edited it with iMovie, but right as I was about to finish editing the last scenes, iMovie stopped playing sound. If I slowly scroll or hover over the video frames it will play the audio, but not then the video is being played. and the audio wave button is on, but the green audio bars won't even display while the video is playing, but will when I'm hovering over video layers.

OS X :: IMovie 09 Keeps Playing Audio I Have Deleted?

Jul 17, 2010

I was putting together a music video out of boredom, and getting used to using iMovie 09, but a lot of clips near the end will not stop playing snippets of sound here and there. Sometimes a bunch of the play at the same time over one clip. This happens even when I turn the volume of the song to 0% just to see if the random sounds would play without it over them, and they do.

So I deleted the audio from each clip by detaching them and then deleting, but they still played. Then I tried just setting the audio to 0% and even reset ducking on the Song playing over them to 0%. None of this worked. Mind you, this only happens when it is played in fullscreen mode. If I just press space bar and play it as is, it works fine. Can anyone explain what is going on?

Applications :: Final Cut Pro General Error (Out Of Memory)

Dec 30, 2009

I am running Final Cut Pro 7 on a MacBook with a 2.4 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo. I have used FCP to edit before using video from a camera that used mini DV tapes and that worked fine. I recently got the Flip Ultra HD, which records straight to MP4 with the following format: 1280x720, 30 FPS, H.264 video compression. I imported the files on my computer and then imported them into FCP. When I try to play them in the viewer I get a window that says: General Error. Then another window that says: out of memory. I have tried restarting both the computer and the program.

Applications :: Long Delay After Clicking On Links

Mar 6, 2010

About three days ago I started having a strange latency problem with my internet connection. When I click on a link, it takes a long time to load and sometimes doesn't load at all. If I click on the "stop" button and then "reload", it loads very quickly. This doesn't happen every time I click a link, or with every link I click, but it's happening often enough that it's seriously slowing down my browsing. I'm on a Mac Pro connected via ethernet to a Comcast high speed cable connection. The cable modem is also connected to a D-Link router with a wireless network, which we use for the three other computers in the house. Here's the strange thing: the other three computers aren't having the same latency problem. It's just my Mac Pro connected directly to the network that's having the problem.

Applications :: Cannot Save Or Render In Final Cut General Error Message With No Number

Sep 27, 2009

I just opened a FC project in 6.0 from an XML file for the first time. The project originally came from 6.0.6 and I was happy to see that this kind of reversion was actually possible. Unfortunatly after doing a little work I started getting "general error" messages whenever I tried to save the project or render any transitions.

If I remeber correctly, I opened the XML and was asked to save a new project. I saved the project and started working. I dont remeber if any saves or rendering had worked in the new project before I got the error messages. Maybe none of them worked, I am not sure.

Applications :: IMovie 5 HD Project In IMovie 8?

Sep 21, 2009

I have a project file that was created using iMovie 5 HD. In this project file were a large number of unused clips and also the final film, edited with transitions, backing music, end credits, etc.

However when I import this project file into iMovie 8 I cannot find the final edited film anywhere, just all the clips that were both used and unused within the project file.

How can I get the final film back without spending about a week re-editing everything?

Applications :: Edit In IMovie/Export 2 GarageBand - Export To IMovie Upload To YouTube?

Jan 16, 2010

So i've recently gotten in the uploading to YouTube craze with my Flip Mino HD but i'm not too happy at the way i've been doing this and am hoping there is an easier way.

As of late i've been importing what i film into iMovie. In iMovie i'll edit the video to my liking. In iMovie i'll "export" to the media browser so it'll show up in GarageBand. Then i'll open GarageBand and edit my film further, dealing with sound; adding music. After that i'll export it as a .MOV to my desktop. Then i'll open iMovie again and import that .MOV file and from there in iMovie will have it upload to YouTube in its original HD format.

Applications :: Won't Import Imovie Project Files Into Imovie / Not Recognizing Files

May 8, 2009

So, I have all of my imovie projects backed up on my external harddrive, as well as the imovie program. I accidentally deleted all of the imovie projects and events from the imovie application on my laptop. When I try to re-import the imovie files into imovie, it doesn't recognize the files. I have tried to convert them with iSkySoft Video Converter. That converter program does not recognize the files either. I also tried burning the files onto a disc and then pulling them off the disc with the Handbrake program. This doesn't work either. I also tried importing the files into iMovie HD, which I have on my desktop, but to no avail. Are these files alll useless now? I'm at my wits end because I have spent literally months compiling footage for a documentary.

Mac Pro :: How Loud Are The New Machines In General

Mar 15, 2009

how loud are the new machines in general? How much louder do they get under load? How much of the noise is contributed by the graphics card? How do they compare to the 2008 MacPro or to the PowerMac G5?Many questions, I know. I have a G5 Quad 2.5 at the moment, at it is rather loud, especially under load. Back then, I bought it with a better graphics card (7800) and exchanged the graphics card fan with a quieter fan from Zalman. This eliminated the annoying, high-pitched sound, but the complete machine is still very audible.

so i have a macbook unibody late 2008 and i wanted to go on the itunes store and it said to update java. So i did the update that ocmes up on your mac and once it restarted it gave me an error that will not go away.

I am running bootcamp and windows works just fine. Also not sure if it makes a difference but i jailbroke my iphone right before i restarted and my iphone was connected so im not sure if that makes a difference when it boots up.

it would be very annoying to have to reformat.

Also if i do have to reformat can i leave windows intact?

OS X :: How To Delay Mail From Being Sent ?

Jan 28, 2009

how I can delay mail being sent. I am a recent convert from Outlook.... Outlook as the ability to put the mail in the outbox and then I tell it when I want to Send & Receive.

I find this very useful. How do I get my mac to do this? I have searched the preferences but found nothing. It seems like such a simple request...

Some other questions re: mail.

Also What is the 'Speech Bubble' icon signify on that some line?

How do I click on a mail message in mail to delete it Without it opening the message. Or opening the one underneath it.

PowerPC :: Beeping On General Use And Start Up

Aug 14, 2006

Every once in a while my PowerBook beeps. One of those short beeps you hear on old DOS computers when they boot up is the best way I can describe it. I thought at first it was my PC since it has a built in speaker than can only beep, but I've heard it in many places from my laptop. When it beeps it beeps at different times: sometimes once during just general computer use, sometimes just once during startup. what to make of this? If the beeps were becoming more frequent I'd say it was a countdown to the explosion of my PowerBook, but so far they just seem to occur once or twice a month.

OS X :: MacBook Runs Slow In General

Feb 11, 2009

My MacBook is from the Summer of 2007, so its not the newest one but the last model, a black one. Basically, it just runs slowly. Sometimes i'll boot it up and just dragging icons can be really choppy and opening files or just double-clicking the Mac HD icon will cause that spiral of colors to pop up. It isn't always super slow but I would say that my mac is a lot lot slower than it was in the first 6-8 months I owned it. It has 1gig of memory and it isn't like I have lots of programs running at once (if i was i would understand it being a bit slow) My guess is just from going to websites, cookie build-up, maybe the hardware is just againg, pop-ups, pornography, or whatever is just causing it to slow down. I'd like to not have to reinstall the os and i'm at school anyways so i dont have the disc for that. Any idea what I can do?

Applications :: Playing Mkv On Mac Osx?

Aug 14, 2010

I find that playing .mkv files or other HD video files on mac slower than windows. This is on my 2008 macbook; comparing vlc player on mac os to when i switch over to bootcamp using vlc as well.

in mac os, the video files take a while to start up and usually stutters with frame lags; however in bootcamp, video's start almost instantly.

is this a problem with software (VLC) or just mac os doesn't handle mkv files well?
