The Timecode Effect is gpu accelerated, the render bar is yellow and it still drops frames.
If it drops frames on a yellow bar, how can I ever trust it to print to tape? It wouldn't be a problem if I could say render the yellow sections of my edit, but it won't because the bar is not red. Very frustrating!

Raid 0 _ Speed Tested Excellent
working with uncompressed black magic 1080i AVI's
It seems to happen when I have overlapping clips with the Timecode Effect on one or both. Plays fine if just a single clip with the effect.
Any help would be great, hopefully I'm just missing something simple..
Your system may not be up to umcompressed BM material. If it is HD that is just packaged in an AVI wrapper, you need around 1.485 Gbps per track sustained transfer rate or nearly 200 MB/s per track. With two tracks 'Speed Tested Excellent' may be too slow. With two tracks you need at least 4 disks in Aid0 and a fill rate below 50% on all of them. Even then frames may be dropped.
Here is a capture of my speed test. I do have 4 disks on a raid 0, very little data on the drives. I have run 3 tracks of HD with different levels of opacity with no problem. I do crash the drives when I add the forth. So I would like to think that two tracks with accelerated effect should be fairly simple to playback. Am I wrong to be thinking that way? Also only working with 8 bit, This test is for 10 and up.
The read comes in above 500 mb/s. It was on the way up when I captured it.
