I’m hoping someone can help me and give me some pointers. I have a decent PC built for music production, but not for video production, and it’s 8 years or so old. We picked one of the cheapest graphics cards, simply because at the time we didn’t need a good one. However, now I’m also into video making, and the computer struggles every time I put any effect filters or have too many tracks up. It stops playing at full speed and the image gets jerky. This week I will also start working on another video project, and I’m hoping I’ll be able to use an even higher quality…
So, what can I do, except buy another graphics card?
Is there any way I can have the screen not display and process the full quality of the video while I’m working on it, so that when I export it only then will the full quality be processed. I still need to see the details in regards to timing, but I don’t need to see all the pixels when I’m working on the project. What I’m thinking of would not reduce the quality of the video itself.
Is this possible? If so, how do I do it?
