Problems with Davinci

PostTue Mar 20, 2018 1:59 pm

Rencently i have instaled the Davinci software to learn about video editing, but i can use the software cause everytime i try to render some video sample they freeze and i can't watch it at all.
I've already tried install it in 3 diferent desktops: one with AMD RADEON RX480 (4gb) + 16gb ram memory + R7 AMD CPU. Another with NVIDIA GTX 1050 ti graphics + i5 kaby lake cpu and another with GTX 980 + R7 AMD CPU.

In all of them i have the same problem, is impossible to edit any video.

Understand, the software does not lock itself, only when I try to render a video it gets stuck and the frame rate drops dramatically.

Can you help me please?

What render format? What aspect ratio?

You might try dropping the render speed way down and see if that helps. I have never had to go down to 2fps before, but it is an option. 5fps has generally worked for me on problematic material (including 8K Helium originals). There is a point where you have to get out the hammer and clobber the machine into submission.
