Run a Program in High Priority

Post by sjj1805 »

Handy little trick to make your video editing program run that little bit faster.
You can use [Ctrl]-[Alt]-[Del] and bring up Task manager and then on the
[Processes] tab right click a program and set the priority to HIGH so that it uses more of the CPU processing time than other programs.

Problem is you forget to set it so another way is to alter the programs startup icon. Taking MediaStudio 8 as an example you alter the startup shortcut from

"C:\Program Files\Ulead Systems\Ulead MediaStudio Pro 8.0\veditor.exe"
To
C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /c start "runhigh" /high "C:\Program Files\Ulead Systems\Ulead MediaStudio Pro 8.0\veditor.exe"

For VideoStudio 11 this would be
From
"C:\Program Files\Ulead Systems\Ulead VideoStudio 11\vstudio.exe"
To
C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /c start "runhigh" /high "C:\Program Files\Ulead Systems\Ulead VideoStudio 11\vstudio.exe"
