When capturing SD footage via Firewire the capture monitor window has pixelated dropouts in a couple areas (usually the same places) during loading. This is a new dual quad core Dell precision machine nVidia,Quadro FX 5600, 1.5GB dual VGA or DVI, Graphics CardDell Precision T7400. Why would that drop out? Never did for years on my previous Dell dual processor machine which had a much lower power graphics card? Not a real problem, just looks terrible.
Rick, i had the same problems with a Nvidia 8800GTX graphic card and the latest drivers from Nvidia fixed that problem for me, 175.16. However, the latest drivers for the Quadros are 169.96 so i am not sure that the problem goes away but it may be worth trying.
Just gave that a try with no success. Tried putting the capture window in either monitor and that did not change the effect. It's odd since the graphics card provides great performance in HDV playback, and multilayer previewing without rendering. Such a small thing, but annoying.
