I have had my 7 year old PC updated with a new motherboard, 16gb RAM and i7 processor. It certainly speeds editing up and my edited video I can preview in high quality, including dissolves.
However, the travel video I edit contains, at the end of each day, a selection of the best jpg stills that we took on that day. These dissolve from one to another, but preview is still as stuttering as it was before.
The AMD Radeon R7 370 was retained in my PC as I could not afford any more upgrades. I've tried turning 'Optimise GPU display performance' on/off to no effect. Also 'GPU Acceleration of Video Processing".
I'm a bit disappointed after quite a lot of hassle with the upgrade (the guy forgot to connect one of my hard disks and left in a noisy fan in instead of changing it).
Any tips on previewing stills with effects would be appreciated. Thanks.
