Hi, I'm new to the forums here. I've been using VideoPad for a while and haven't found much for video editors that fit my needs (cheap, easy to use, don't need a lot of fancy effects). However, I still have a few issues. My computer can handle loading up large videos quite nicely. Something along the lines of a two hour clip at 1080p with a couple audio files. Editing goes smoothly at first. However, I've been finding when I start editing the video like crazy that by the time I scramble up an hour of movie into <30 minutes of individual clips, the program has a tendency to crash. This isn't a major problem, as I just have to break down my clips into half hour or 45 minute segments before I start editing. So, I guess I'm not necessarily here to fix this problem, but if it's solved with some responses, then I'll take it. I'm mostly curious what kind of builds people have when they're editing with VideoPad and what kind of projects do they create? ::My Build:: Computer Name: Scooter Noir Processor: AMD FX-8350 @ 4.4Ghz Cooler: Corsair H60 Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 R2.0 (BIOS Version 1903) Memory: 4x2GB Corsair Vengeance (Low Profile) @ 1600Mhz w/ 9 Cas Latency Video Card: XFX Radeon HD 7850 2GB Storage: 4 SATA HDD, 0 SSD (One drive for the OS. A second for the video files. A third and fastest drive for VideoPad cache.) Sound Devices: Creative Rage Wireless Headset and some cheap Vantec USB device for my speakers since my mobo's audio stopped working (happened more than once with an ASUS motherboard). Again, I normally like work with 1080p videos (recorded with Bandicam). I've tried dabbling in videos with overlays. I like to separate and remove segments of my videos quite often. I'm going to guess an i7 might've been up to the task of what I'm attempting at times. Also, I've heard having double the memory I have now (perhaps with more speed might be better) could affect how my videos processor while I edit them. Still, I'd rather get some ideas here before I make too many more assumptions. Thanks in advance! ~ Jason
