I use Creative Vado HD to record a video. The problem with it is that it saves video files in a complicated avi file which takes a lot of time to load in every video editor. And then it takes a lot of time to save this file. And during editing in WMM I've also found that the frames are not displaying very smoothly which is a little problem because sometimes I can only hear the sound in the video during editing.
I was looking for solution of the similar problem in this thread (thank you for the replies by the way) but I still got a problem:
My question is:
If you use Creative Vado HD and you do editing, then how do you do that? What software do you use? Do you convert this file to some other format which is easier to work on?
If you don't use Creative Vado HD, do you know the solution to that problem?

mediainfo. You didn't post details of the computer you are using. That may well be the problem.For the nth time, with the possible exception of certain Intel processors, I don't have/ever owned anything whose name starts with "i".

How do you know the creative is the problem?
Open the pesky AVI files in VirtualDub, and then see what the item "File information" says.
My wild guess is, the Creative Vado thing does not write a proper index, possibly it marks all frames as keyframes
(or perhaps even worse, it marks only the first keyframe )
VirtualDub. After installing this: http://sourceforge.net/projects/x264vfw/ , I can open it but it doesn't display fully correctly. File information in VirtualDub is following:
Video: Frame size, fps (Ás per frame): 1280x720, 30.000 fps (33333 Ás) Length: 109747 frames (1:00:58.23) Decompressor: x264vfw - H.264/MPEG-4 AVC ...

Your hardware is too outdated for AVC or HD, you need to upgrade
Virtualdub, movie studio, and all other free and payware out there will not make any difference unless you use a computer with much more recent hardware.For the nth time, with the possible exception of certain Intel processors, I don't have/ever owned anything whose name starts with "i".
So can you tell me: what hardware do I need at least?
Before you go mad on tech, just how involved do you need these videos you are making to be?
Sony and Adobe editors need large amounts of memory and processing power.
Have you ever considered trying another simple editor?
I would definitely check if your mobo can take 4GB Ram too if it works better than WMM.

- a dual-core CPU
- separate GPU
- separate SATA hard drive to put captured/edited files in
- 8GB of system memory
