OK Thank you Mike I was really just curious since I have a 64bit system with 8gig on board plus a HD vid with 1 gig of its own. I know this is not for everyone but with my Photo Business I need it :-).

I am curious how much memory does HLD recognize and use when it is running? I only ask since the newer machines are coming out with more and the 64 bit systems are way up there in their capability. And if HLD could recognize and utilize more memory would that help with the slow that we keep seeing pop up in the discussions?

:) ;) ;D Than You  :D ;) :)


I want to thank you for all the work that you did that made it possable for me to truly vizualize what was going to happen once I put everything up and threw the switch for the fist time this year. Once the system was activated my work was minamul to correct things to the point that in one day I was able to correct small things in five songs where last year it was more like a week. Thank you again for all your help with all our fixes we sent and your respnses to our e-mails.

Have a wonderful Holiday Season and keep up the great work.

As Mike knows from the half sample I sent him mine is kinda sorta complex, with the first version it took me almost five days to make the layout to where I had a working one. I was not real happy with it ( not the program but my work) With the newest version I decided to redo the whole layout and do it to where I am happy with the way it looks. Started Yesterday and doing the final touches tonight...........What a differance LOVE IT. Not only are the save times so much better but overall response of the whole thing is fantastic took me I belive about four hours to make a mega tree with 32 channels the first time ...............took less than fifteen mins with the upgrade Way To Go MIke!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not sure this will help everybody but I was having the same kinda trouble. I found that opening LOR first and then HLD that worked and all was good. the one thing I notice is that nobody mentioned ( or I missed it ) that the connect button would say yes and when I played the LOR sequence the button went to NO. After starting LOR first that problem went away.

As a Photographer I do not utilize the 3D of Photoshop since I seldom have a use for it in my work but guess I should check it out and see if there could be a use with other systems such as HLD.

Yep that helps  :) I kinda sorta thought it may be something like that but not sure so as such I posted as maybe significant LOL but thought that since I wasnt sure I would throw it out there. Thanks for the explanation now I know :D

Mike just a questian possably of no significance but thought I would ask anyway. I notice that while monitoring system performance that when I start HDL it shows that while running it is using about 50 % of the processor all of the time. I only ask because other programs that I use such as Photoshop CS 3 and such major demand programs do spike when they start and when running they fall back to almost 0 and opnly show spikeing when demands are placed on them while working on a picture for example. Not sure if it as I said is significant but thought I would throw it out to you.

Sorry you misunderstood me my intention was to remind people that as far as I have seen the industrie does not have many programs that are bug proof and as a bata they are always laden with bugs (hence bata to have bugs found by ussers putting the program through as many paces as possable  ;) and make the program at least functional when released this I know ) My point was that for the most part no program is bug proof because of the different modes people use them for untill they reach version Five where MOST of the bugs have been removed and the program functions well enoough to keep people happy.

As Mike knows from my notes to him He is doing a fantastic job and I commend him and his diligance, I have never seen anyone in the feild persue as he does. He comments that WE the people here keep him going and at the same time we knowing that he is working on these problems keeps our patience in cheek and willing to work with and wait fir the fixes to come.

The original post was meant only as humor and should be taken as such.

Just an thought but when things are really going aginst me when I am working on something I find that just letting it go for a bit and do somesthing I enjoy is the best way. One it gives you a chance to clear your head and second you come back at it more vitalized and somehow things just seem to start falling into place. Yes I know you and all of us would like to have this running like yesterday but hell one more day isnt going to kill anyone ( well with the exception of you that is  ;) ) So Mike take a brake and hit it later.

OK for all of you newbies in the program world I have a relization that I came to quite a few years ago, ( I am sixty and have been working with computers for over thirty years NOT professionaly as a programer but personal only ). The relization that I came to is that 95% of the time a program is still in bata mode untill it reaches version FIVE. I offer Windows as a prime example. Have they ever offered a program system that was fully functional at all????? ;) ;D :-X :-X :-X :-X

I am running Windows XP Pro 64 bit with 8 Gig of memory. My questian is I know that some programs do not recognize all the memory in a system and would that be the case with Holiday Soft and if so how much memory is recognized. I only ask as it seems that with that much memory there should be lsee trouble with saving and performance yet I also am suffering from long saves and extended reaction time with moves and such.
