Having read other peoples problems with Studio 8, I have been able to set up my computer, just for editing. This has cured most of the troubles, but I have one major problem left. That is when I have finished an edit and go to output to tape, Studio has to close because of an error in DVCODEC.DLL. When I first used the program, I had no problems at all. I made several AVI. files, output 2 projects to tape and made 2 VCD's. then when I came to edit another project, problems started. Since then I have removed the software completely and reinstalled, twice. Before using Studio, I remove all unwanted start-up programs, stop screen saver, stop energy saver and keep over 200Mb of RAM free. There are several posts with similar problems on the Pinnacle forum. Any advice would be most welcome.
