Is encoding (staxrip) causing the problem?
I am a total newbie so please go easy on me. I want to ask a couple of questions regarding my computer screen. Also excuse my english if there are any mistakes (it's not my first language).
I use staxrip to encode personal videos. I have been doing this quite a while now (almost a year) and since I haven't stopped recording, some weeks I could do many encodings (unfortunatelly I'm a perfectionist). The problem is that after 6 months my screen started having some kind of "waves" going up and down. I know encoding is a demanding process so here are the questions:
Is there any way the unformemtioned problem was caused by the encoding? (if so, can I fix it?). I intend to buy a new computer so what are the minimum requirements a computer should have to be able to handle encoding? (are there any?). So should I keep encoding or not?
I use a 7-year-old desktop: Intel Core i3 CPU RAM: 2 GB. The computer doesn't have a separate graphics card.
