    Studio 12 Install problems - Flickering preview and crashing

    When I try to view a video file, it flickers in the preview window.  I've even tried the sample videos.  This same thing happened when I installed 11 last year but I don't remember what I did to fix it.  I tried changing the settings concerning background rendering and full res preview but no change.

    2nd problem - It said Magic Bullets will not work because of a problem with my video card.  I am putting my specs below....please advise.

    3rd problem - The program keeps crashing.  I just installed it tonight.  I am hoping that when I wake up in the morning and start my computer that all will be well.

    Thanks......

    - Intel 82945 Express ChipSet w/ 224 MB Memory <-- Uses your ram as video memory. This is a big bottleneck on your system's performance. You should go for a new video card with atleast 256mb - 512mb of dedicated Video memory.

    Thank you for your reply.  Besides the 256-512 mb of dedicated memory, is there anything else I need to look for on a new video card?

    Always go for nothing older than the 7xxx series Nvidia and ATI equivalent. And look for HDCP compatibility.
