Video Editor 32bits

Postby banzailoco » Sun Oct 21, 2018 11:49 am

For those having problems using Mixcraft 8 video editing on an old PC, win7 32 bits, there's a free software you can use to put together the video clip with the sound. Shotcut video editor, a free cross-platform program. The reason I'm using and outside editor, it's because when using big videos and audio files in Mixcraft 8, it start to lag. I don't know how Mixcraft uses the memory system, but it's not optimized for my PC. This is from my experience on win7 32 bits 4 GB Ram.

Nice of you to post this.

I see that there is a 64-bit version too.

(Have not installed this nor tested it i.e. a bit worried that it may conflict with my video editing software).

Regards,

Dale.

It shouldn't make the slightest bit of difference to your third party video editing software which edition of Mixcraft you use.

However you wont be using Mixcraft 64 bit version on a 32 bit windows.

With all that said , theres no sensible reason to be using a 32 bit windows in 2018. The fact your limited to 4gb max makes it a bit of a non starter. I dont think they even make PCs anymore with that low ram. If 4GB is all you have however I'd include upgrading to 16 or 32 gig ram as well, then upgrade to windows 10. You won't be able to get a 64 bit windows 7 anymore, its not sold , its not updated, and except with special support agreements larger corporations sometimes make with microsoft its not supported. its historical software. And since windows 8 is a dumpster fire. Just skip on to windows 10.
Windows 10. Intel i7 quadcore something. 16gigs ram. assorted mech and SSD hard drives.
Focusrite liquid pre 56. 2x Golden age 73 pres. FMR Audio RNC compressor.
Tascam 38 tape, and Yamaha 8 track cassette portastudio like a boss.

Hello.

Couldn't help myself and downloaded it and installed it yesterday. True enough it didn't cause an issue with my other video software. It looks good I must say. I found but one issue i.e. lip synch. was slightly out (on a video that I used for testing) which could be related to ASIO buffering (never bothered to try with Windows sound direct). But alas: I uninstalled it (I have Vegas Pro Suite 13 thru 15 so no point for me but was worth the look).

Regards,

Dale.

Yes there is. If you have a multitude of 32-bit plugin instances in a project, the 64-bit version of Mixcraft will eventually grind to a halt because of the native 32-bit VST wrappers.

I use 32-bit MC almost exclusively for exactly this reason.
